E: What I enjoy most is the interaction with different company stakeholders, such as managers, employees and HR business partners. I get to meet many people in the course of my job.
I also collaborate with a great team; we laugh together, grow together personally and professionally, help each other to deliver quality results, and there is energetic and awesome rapport between members!
To enable me to carry out my duties well, I am given the necessary empowerment in my job, and encouraged to ask questions when in doubt.
H: For me, continuously improving on the work culture at Philips is what brings me great satisfaction. When processes are made more efficient, the time saved can be used to work on improving other areas.
It helps that my manager is always supportive and shares advice on my development plans. She's also open to new ideas and will give them a shot if feasible. In my team, no man is an island. My teammates are always positive and when faced with problems, we sit down together and discuss how to resolve them.
YL: I like the challenge that my job brings each day, and the knowledge I gain from dealing with these challenges. Our bosses also empowers us to make decisions, allowing us to learn, perform, and develop our capabilities and leadership skills.
Communication is a big part of the culture at Philips, such that any feedback is taken into consideration, and there are many channels to provide bottom-up communication to the management team, from quarterly surveys to PPM and weekly team meetings. This makes us feel important as they value our needs, perceptions and opinions.
My team is a diverse group of people who bond with a common objective – to provide excellent HR service for our internal customers. I feel very proud of my team members as they take ownership in their work and are supportive of each other during challenging times. We learn from our mistakes, and grow together as a team.
RX: Like Yong Liang, I enjoy taking on challenges that come my way, and I take satisfaction in resolving them. For example, overseeing my team to resolve some unforeseen problems without affecting the payroll cycle.
At Philips, we are allowed to express ourselves freely, and if our proposed solutions and changes can enhance operations, the bosses will support us in implementing them.
