Chief talent officer, McCann World Group
The past year has been one of great recognition for Jean-Michel Wu. His innovative approach to HR includes integrating the business’s talent and growth strategies and aggressively using technology such as social media and background checking to improve the recruitment process. He has helped the company identify and retain high-potential staff, and has driven mobility efforts within the APAC and global regions. These initiatives undoubtedly played a role in McCann World Group winning the Healthcare Agency Network of the Year award for the fourth consecutive year in 2015. Wu was also named a LinkedIn Power Profile for HR in Singapore last year. As one of the country’s social media pioneers, he is contacted by around 20 potential candidates per day via digital means.
