Senior HR executive,
Big Box Singapore
For the past few years, Zen Tan has been occupied with spearheading recruitment for the opening of the largest warehouse retailers in Singapore, which has involved hiring approximately 200 staff and arranging their compensation packages and incentives. The project also led to the evaluation and fine-tuning of various internal HR policies – including employee leave provisions and other benefits for existing staff – and the alignment of these with the benefits for new staff. As an acknowledgement of his efforts, Tan was promoted to his current position in July 2016. His other recent efforts include assisting business units in gauging manpower needs by reviewing work patterns and adjusting schedules to reduce overlapping hours and increase productivity, as well as conducting exit interviews to generate quality feedback and implementing changes from that feedback in order to reduce turnover rate.
