SEAH GEK CHOO

Assurance and advisory partner and talent partner
DELOITTE SINGAPORE

In 2016, Deloitte Singapore won several awards for its employer branding initiatives and for achieving workplace wellbeing and workforce mobility. The awards are testament to the innovative programs Seah Gek Choo and her team have implemented – a prime example of which is the Deloitte Ignite program, a special initiative offering elite athletes flexible internship and employment opportunities across a wide range of fields – audit and finance, marketing and communications and even HR. Another key initiative Seah helps manage is the internship program Inspire@Deloitte, in which grads learn about career opportunities and expand their network through interactions with Deloitte employees. As Deloitte Singapore approaches its 50th year in 2017, one of Seah’s priorities is to see through the application of a design thinking methodology – “learning from employees’ personal experience to create processes centred on their needs”.
