HR director, Southeast Asia, Bosch
Motivated by a keen interest in sociology and psychology, Jennifer Ong dove headlong into a career in HR. Joining Bosch in 2009, she rose up the ranks and reached her current role in 2011. Made up of more than 30 nationalities, Bosch has a diverse and challenging environment in which Ong thrives. A desire for continuous improvement shines through in policies such as Bosch’s Continuous Development Program, designed to evaluate and enhance internal business operations. This program allowed Bosch Thailand to optimise its payroll process by 66% – slashing it from 15 to ﬁve days. Ong has also put her heart into fostering local Singaporean talent, recently signing an MOU for a dual-body study program with the Singapore Institute of Technology and other ﬁrst-rate schools.
