Life at Deloitte

Siang Yeap

HR Business Partner for Global Employer Services, Tax

Siang works in Human Resources and is based in our London office.

What do my team and I do?

My role is very much a HR Generalist role. We get involved with all aspects of HR and have the opportunity to influence and guide the business through times of change. The Client Service HR team sit alongside the business which they are aligned to. I’m the HR Business Partner for Global Employer Services who are one of the three business units in the Tax service line.

Where does my team fit?

The Client Service HR Team sits within the wider HR function. We are the link between the business and the HR centres of excellence for Resourcing, Reward, Learning, Talent, Employee Relations and Operations.

How does my role make an impact that matters with Deloitte?

When there is a lot of market-driven change, we help to put people front of mind in the business. We think through how the changes will impact our employees and provide the link between them and the business strategy.

My biggest accomplishment.

I’m on an International secondment from Australia. I’m proud to have secured my secondment. International mobility is growing but at the time in which I moved, it was still quite rare. I’d been at Deloitte for over four years in a regional role and I was looking for a change and a new challenge. My manager was very supportive so I explored my options overseas. It’s been a very smooth transition.

What I’m most proud of at Deloitte?

We’ve recently flattened the structure of the business which has meant changes to some people’s roles which created uncertainty. The changes are for the better though. It’s improved people’s career pathways and reduced hierarchy meaning people can accelerate through the new structure more quickly. I ran workshops, delivered a comms plan and created a HR change management plan for the business to embed the changes. We were the first out of the three business units in Tax to roll it out so we can now guide and assist the other HR teams in Tax through the process.

My favourite part of the job.

I enjoy being part of such a progressive organisation. Deloitte sets HR trends and is always looking at new ways of doing things such as our new approach to performance and development announced earlier this year. I’m encouraged to be innovative and find better ways to do my role.

Something more about me.

It comes as no surprise that I enjoy travelling. London is a great city and my family and I are enjoying exploring it.
