Corporate Vision March 2017

CORPORATE VISION / March 2017 101 The Best Talent in the Market ## Company: Page Group (Michael Page International) Web Address: Name: Stephanie Iafigliola Title: Regional Talent Development Manager – Asia Pacific LinkedIn: g “It is my belief that an organisation is only as strong and successful as the people within it. To stay competitive every organisation needs to evaluate their value proposition and how they will attract and develop their talent so that they not only stay within their organisation but are ambassadors for the brand. By doing so, the organisations culture evolves from one written on paper, to one that is “owned and contributed to” by everyone which creates a positive, exciting and inspiring place to work. In my role, every initiative we work towards has that key driver at its central point.” Stephanie began her career within the HR team with Woolworths Limited and progressed into Professional Services where she manages the Talent Development function within PageGroup. Recently she was awarded the prestigious accolade of Best Regional Talent Development Specialist – Australia for her diligence to her role at PageGroup. She shares with us the secrets to her success. “Over the years, I believe my success has come from my personal values and beliefs. I am not afraid to try new things or embrace ideas different to my own. “Working with colleagues from different backgrounds, cultures and varying levels of seniority has shown me that much personal growth can come from challenging yourself to get out of your own comfort zone and try new things. I embrace and value adopting a growth mind-set and look to embed this in everything I do. Not every day is going to go the way I expect it to, and when I come across obstacles or face challenges, I remind myself that how I choose to respond to what’s in front of me and what I learn from it is a reflection of who I am and want to be. I don’t believe in failure defining someone, I believe in defying limitations and taking something away from each situation that I can learn from and grow from. These guiding principles are what I come back to and have helped me seek solace many times in both my professional and personal life. It’s funny just how relevant these principles are regardless of where someone is in their career or life in general. “What’s next for me? While no one can be 100% sure what the future holds, what I can say with certainty is that I look to continuously develop myself and challenge my own “self- prescribed” limits. Any role that has me doing that will keep me working there.”
