Jakarta, August 25, 2017 – PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk (Telkom) and Telstra, a prominent telecommunications and technology company in Australia, are showing their commitment in improving the quality of human resources by exchanging talents (employees). Regarding the matter, Director of Telkom Enterprise & Business Service Dian Rachmawan and Group Executive of Telstra Enterprise Brendon Riley signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Talent Exchange Pilot Program at Telkom Landmark Tower, Jakarta, Friday (25/8).

The MoU is an agreement to achieve the goals of both companies in preparing and improving talents (employees) with global knowledge. As a part of the MoU, both companies are implementing the program by exchanging their employees for six months where each company sends 6 employees to join two programs that were launched simultaneously, which are Project Team Program and Talent Swap Program.

Employees who join the Project Team Program will work for the project made by the company and business unit they’ll work for. Meanwhile, employees who join the Talent Swap Program will move to the another company and serve the duties that are similar to the duties in their previous company.

After the MoU signing, Dian Rachmawan said that TelkomGroup welcomes the program that swaps talents between TelkomGroup and Telstra. "As a prominent digital telecommunications company in Indonesia that’s been experienced an international expansion in 10 countries, we always commit to improve the quality of company’s human resources. Through the program, the participating talents will get new experience and knowledge, and the program is expected to inspire them in creating business innovations that follow the dynamic global industry to support the company development. All employees of TelkomGroup from various business units, including employees of the company’s subsidiaries, have the same chance to join the program," Dian Rachmawan said.

Meanwhile, Brendon Riley said that the talent swap program offers an opportunity to the employees of both companies, TelkomGroup and Telstra, to develop their competency and skills in particular fields and prepare themselves to become a leader in the digital telecommunications and technology business that keeps growing in Asia-Pacific region. "Our company business grows rapidly across Asia. Therefore, we need a talent pool and future leaders who have a global mindset to provide better services to customers. We’re also glad to continue our partnership with Telkom, particularly in educating employees and developing the global capability of human resources between two companies," Brendon Riley said.

"Telstra is fortunate to build a positive partnership with Telkom since three years ago. We provide the needs for enterprise customers together, knowing that corporations are now starting to go through the digital transformation and using network applications and services through the joint venture we’ve developed, which is Telkotmtelstra," Brendon Riley said.

The talent swap program that will start in November 2017 is expected to improve the capability and competency of employees so the participating talents would accelerate the company’s business development and capable of strengthening the position of TelkomGroup and Telstra as leading players in information and communications technology (ICT) industry in Asia-Pacific region.
