Work.Grow.Play.Repeat. Nurturing engaged and empowered employees


Long gone are the days where the ‘yes man’ reigns over company culture! Leaders today yearn for highly engaged workforce empowered to ask questions, challenge status quo and take ownership in chartering a company’s success.

Think Google or Facebook. These companies move employees beyond conventional work scope. They don’t just hire staffs, they recruit people, develop talents and reward achieving members of the organization.

How do you introduce and nurture such culture? Does it only work in tech companies or is it also applicable to conventional businesses?

RISE Talks April features local enterprise heroes and we will be finding out how their company's culture and values are practiced and more importantly, how it impacts their business.

Local enterprise heroes of the evening:

Adnan Lee (Managing Director of MBG)

Derek Toh (Co-founder of wobb.my)

Maverick Ling (Co-founder of 57 Square)
