HR director, Singapore, Aviva
Anuradha Purbey has worked at Aviva for 10 years, taking up roles in India, the US and Singapore. She was chosen for leadership at 32 and rapidly rose up the ranks. While working closely with other business partners, she brings out value in her employees through flexible work arrangements, staff recognition programs and equal benefits for all employees. Successfully leading her team out of the global financial crisis, she now focuses on developing resilience among the Aviva workforce. She also understands the need to prepare for the future, bringing in new data analytics to increase the company’s capabilities. Keen to share her knowledge, Purbey is a regular speaker at HR events throughout Singapore. She presented at the HR Analytics, Insights and Implementation Forum in January and will also speak
at HR Excel 2016, a forum organised by HRD magazine for later this year.
