CHRISTOPHER GOH
Vice president, HR,
Barclays Singapore

After graduation, Christopher Goh immediately joined Barclays and worked in various units of the company, such as technology, investment banking and global markets, before eventually establishing himself in HR and rising through the ranks, all in less than six years. One of his major contributions to HR work in the company has been the handling of multiple largescale workforce planning projects that have involved notoriously tricky HR areas such as examining end-to-end workflows, managing offshoring/relocation of roles, and addressing concerns following business divestment and closure. Goh has also led Singapore-specific initiatives, an example of which is the Apprentice Programme, which made Barclays the first global investment bank to hire fresh graduates from polytechnic universities through a structured development program.
