December 29, 2023

In the bustling world of travel and tourism, there are individuals who go above and beyond to create memorable experiences for others. One such person is Diah, a passionate and dedicated member of the Discova team. As the Peopleworks Leader for Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore, Diah plays a crucial role in ensuring the well-being and growth of her fellow colleagues. In this blog, we delve into Diah’s journey at Discova, her love for cultural diversity, and her recent experience at the FC Global Gathering in Bali. 

‘Working with people from different cultures is what I love the most in Discova.’ 

With a warm smile and a genuine desire to connect with people, Diah has been an integral part of the Discova family for the past year. As the Peopleworks Leader, she focuses on human resources business partnering, where visibility, empathy, and effective communication are key. Diah’s passion for working with people from different cultures shines through in her role, as she embraces the opportunity to learn and grow alongside her diverse colleagues. 

For Diah, working at Discova has been an eye-opening experience. Being her first “Global” workplace, she cherishes the chance to interact with individuals from various backgrounds and perspectives. The ability to discover new things through communication and problem-solving with her colleagues has been a source of inspiration for Diah. She believes that the courage to face challenges together fosters a strong sense of unity within the team. 

‘I love how we can solve the problem together with the same courage.’ 

Discova’s culture revolves around creating possibilities for people to thrive, and Diah wholeheartedly embraces this ethos. The company’s transparency regarding global goals and actions resonates deeply with her. Diah feels a genuine sense of support and camaraderie among her colleagues, as they all work towards achieving shared objectives. The caring nature of the Discova community provides a secure and nurturing environment for personal and professional growth. 

Diah has had the opportunity to embark on business trips that have further enriched her professional journey. Her first business travel experience took her to Kuala Lumpur for the Peopleworks Conference, where she joined other Asia Peopleworks Leaders for three days of collaboration and connection. What started as virtual meetings transformed into face-to-face interactions, allowing Diah to strengthen her bond with her team. From serious discussions and brainstorming sessions to engaging in super fun activities, such as exploring Batu Caves, indulging in culinary delights, and enjoying evenings by seeing the Twin Tower, Diah’s time in Kuala Lumpur was nothing short of memorable. The experience not only deepened her connection with her team but also provided her with a chance to meet the Discova Malaysia DMC team, further solidifying the sense of unity within the company. 

Diah’s second business trip took her to Singapore, where she had the opportunity to work from the FCM-Discova office and visit her team. The vibrant city-state offered a unique experience for Diah, as she embraced the walking culture and efficient MRT system. Getting lost and finding her way back again filled her with a sense of accomplishment and adventure. Exploring the beautiful sights of Singapore, although the Merlion was unfortunately under renovation at the time, allowed Diah to immerse herself in the city’s rich culture. Additionally, she participated in a training session alongside HR professionals from various industries, broadening her network and knowledge. 

Both of these business travel experiences initially evoked nervousness in Diah, but they ultimately proved to be wonderful and transformative. The opportunity to connect with colleagues, explore new destinations, and engage in professional development has left Diah eagerly anticipating her next adventure. As she continues to embrace the joys and challenges of business travel, Diah’s experiences serve as a testament to the personal and professional growth that can be achieved through these journeys. 

‘I would not be embarrassed to say that Discova made me travel out of Indonesia for the first time last year.’ 

Diah also had the opportunity to attend the FC Global Gathering in Bali. As a resident of the island, she was thrilled to support the team and immerse herself in the vibrant atmosphere. Meeting people from various FCTG brands and engaging with the Discova Americas team filled her with excitement. Diah thoroughly enjoyed the busy yet invigorating experience, as she collaborated with her colleagues to make the event a success. 

Diah’s journey at Discova is a testament to the power of embracing diversity and thriving together. Her role as the Peopleworks Leader allows her to connect with people from different cultures, fostering a sense of unity and shared purpose. Diah’s recent experience at the FC Global Gathering in Bali further solidified her belief in the strength of the Discova community. As she continues to make a positive impact within the company, Diah’s passion for people and her dedication to creating memorable experiences shine through, making her an invaluable asset to the Discova team. 

‘I sincerely feel that all the people in Discova really support each other and share the same spirit to achieve those goals.’
