On December 17 at the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, AMCHAM's HR Committee held their final event of the year. Over 20 attendees gathered for 'Stop Being Seen as the 'Mai Dai' Department' by special guest speaker, Neil Russel from RMA Group.
The event started off with HR Committee Co-Chair, Chris Shultz, going over some basic AMCHAM news and upcoming events. He also noted that this was the last of the HR Committee's events for 2019. This committee has been very active for the year, totaling 11 well attended events with quality speakers.
With his long history of being an expert is all matters Human Resource related, Neil led group sessions to demonstrate the importance of communication and partnerships within a business. He spoke on how businesses typically view Human Resources as the department that is the place where people are told they "can't do" something. Stressing the importance of building business partnerships, Neil spoke on how it is the responsibility of the HR department to work on building these partnerships so that perception can change. Guests were engaged through a series of activities to help solidify key points. Neil's presentation will be available on the AMCHAM member portal within a week from the event.
