Building a culture of leadership
Allan Yong, President of Henkel Indonesia, presented Henkel’s strategy for talent and leadership development during a panel discussion on Indonesia’s labor market challenges on 29 April in Jakarta. The event was organized by the British Chamber of Commerce in Indonesia (BritCham) in association with the European Business Chambers of Commerce in Indonesia.
“For Henkel, a strong leadership culture is a key success factor for our business and to realize our vision to be a global leader in brands and technologies,” said Allan Yong. “In line with this, we put great efforts into developing strong leaders who have international mindsets, and who can manage their teams successfully and inspire them.” Henkel’s five leadership principles – lead myself, lead team, lead performance, lead change and lead stakeholders – define the excellent leadership skills that Henkel aims to inculcate within its managers, globally and especially in emerging markets such as Indonesia.
Henkel Indonesia is strengthening its managerial and leadership team through various programs, including internal promotions, proactive planning for the next generation of executives and promoting a continuous learning environment. Through these, Henkel is addressing Indonesia’s talent shortage and positioning itself as an employer of choice.
