Jason Ho of OCBC Bank is part of the HRD Asia Hot List 2018
Head of group HR
OCBC Bank continues to push the envelope in terms of technology. From mid-2017, employees in Singapore were granted access to HR information and could get instant responses based on their profiles anytime, anywhere, with the use of OCBC’s first-of-its-kind HR mobile app,
Also in 2017, Jason Ho was instrumental in the launch of the bank’s new-look banking internship program, the OCBC FRANKpreneurship. The program not only introduces students to the world of banking but also features the deliberate inculcating of entrepreneurship skills and knowledge. It is the first bank-wide penultimate-year internship program to bring together the expertise of bank specialists, external technology leaders Google and Adobe, and university subject-matter experts all at once. It attracted more than 500 applications, from which 26 penultimate-year undergraduates from NUS, NTU, SMU and SUSS (formerly UniSIM) were selected in a rigorous one-day selection process called Ideation Day.
