Vice president of HR, Asia Pacific and Japan

The biggest challenge Jocelyn Macedo faced in 2016 was helping to manage one of the largest technology mergers in history – that of Dell and EMC. One of Macedo’s top priorities has been defining the corporate culture – the company’s values, leadership principles and work ethic – based on the feedback and insights of over 75,000 former Dell and EMC team members. Impressively, in the same year, the company was recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Asia. Macedo explains the impetus for and effectiveness of their talent strategy: “Being a Great Place To Work is an important part of our talent strategy, which is geared toward creating an inclusive work environment where all team members have the opportunity to contribute to the company’s success and realise their full potential. It is our strong culture that sets us apart and enables us to attract, retain and engage talented team members across the Asia region.”
