How Locals Can Play a More Prominent Role Leading Multinationals in Asia

Hiring more locals to fill top posts at Western multinational corporations (MNCs) operating in Asia doesn’t just further inclusion, it’s good business. Localising leadership requires overcoming cultural conditioning in certain Asian cultures that may, in certain circumstances, be a hindrance to upward mobility in large global organisations, but organisations that are cultivating local management in the region seldom regret it.

Getting on Board: A Woman's Dilemma

Hudra Zulkiflee, IRC Malaysia and Thailand

Globally and within Malaysia, there is a growing awareness of the need to increase the percentage of women on corporate boards. The Malaysian government also announced a target for 30% women representation on public-listed corporate boards. So, where do we presently stand? The World Bank Research group shows that as of December 2018, Malaysia has 15.7% female board representation across all public-listed companies.

Mind the Gap: Millennials vs Generation X and Baby Boomers

Millennials, together with generation X, are quickly becoming the largest working demographic globally, nearly on par with baby boomers, and in many parts of the world, already outnumbering them.

About IRC

“Within our organization we have businesses in several countries in EMEA. Through IRC Global Executive Search Partners we were able to find candidates also outside the territory from which we manage the day to day operation, simply by connecting the network between Hagoort & Partners (IRC Netherlands) and IRC abroad. The approach not only delivered strong candidates and so the luxury of making choices from a high quality shortlist, but we were also very pleased with the professional approach of the searches with respect to planning, communication and feedback.”
