MY YEARS IN BINTAN RESORTS


I joined PT Bintan Resort Cakrawala (formerly PT. Bintan Resort Corporation) in September 1995 as a bachelor Accountant. I feel myself lucky get involved in the history making of the development project of the first ever integrated international class beach resort on Bintan Island Indonesia. PT Bintan Resort Cakrawala was initially a joint venture between Indonesian Salim Group and Singapore Sembawang Corp. led consortium. Later I learned that Sembawang Corp. consortium decided to left the joint venture.

I was promoted to Finance Assistant Manager in Jan 1999 and then offered a job as Human Resource Manager in 2001 at the time when the company was facing a hostile industrial realation caused by a mass retrenchment of it's staff following a deadlock in the negotiation of a collective labor agreement between the management and workers union respresentative.

I left PT BRC in October 2004 in pursuing a better carreer prospect after more than 9 years of service. I brought a wife and 3 children with me when I left BRC. It was my longest service in one company thus far. And one important thing, I left BRC with a peaceful and sound industrial relation between management and it's staff.

Daniel Ong presented a tribe chief attire during his farewell party in June 2007. Daniel Ong was DGM of BRC from May 2001- August 2004. Daniel Ong is a very good cummunicator both verbal and written. I learn a lot from him on this. One other thing that I learned from Daniel was his capability to project the impact and image of actions he is doing. Last but not least, to my surprise, Daniel also likes Batak food.
