In today’s world, companies are likely to face challenges across multiple fronts, in this context, it is important to understand the strategic roadmap of your company. That’s where hyper digitization is going to play a key role in shaping people strategies. “Hyper digitization is an opportunity for us, it will help us focus our energies on the most critical tasks,” says Angelina Chua, First Vice President & Group Head of Human Resource/Group Data Protection Officer, Yeo Hiap Seng.
