In ASEAN, the BlueScope Buildings footprint ranges from Thailand and Vietnam to Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, and cross-country and cross-business cooperation is developing as a competitive advantage in improving service to customers and working more efficiently. Here are some examples:
- Two site project managers from BlueScope Buildings Thailand were posted to Ghana for three months to supervise the completion of a project won by the Vietnam business which could not send its own employees due to visa restrictions between the two countries.
- A BlueScope Buildings Thailand Technical Manager has supported a project in Vietnam for major GBS customer Procter & Gamble.
- A Technical Sales Manager from BlueScope Buildings Thailand was seconded to BlueScope Malaysia when experienced technical resources were required to support the construction of the new inline paintline.
- HR professionals from BlueScope Buildings Vietnam have assisted in filling vacancies in the commercial team in Thailand, and helped recruit two designers to work in Thailand, where it was difficult to hire the experienced professionals required at that time.
As the market changes and becomes more challenging, BlueScope people are working together to embrace the opportunities wherever possible.
