Meet Yi Ting, Account Management Executive from ZALORA Malaysia 17 Nov 2023

Hi, I’m Yi Ting, an Account Management Executive for Beauty at ZALORA Malaysia!

My role revolves around managing and nurturing relationships with beauty brand partners to ensure their success on our platform. It provides me an opportunity to work with exciting beauty brands, contribute to their success, and play a crucial role in the growth and success of ZALORA's beauty category.

I’ve always had a keen interest in the e-commerce industry, and ZALORA’s position within this rapidly evolving industry has been a consistent source of motivation for me. There's always something new to learn and explore.

It also holds a special place in my heart as it marks my first job fresh out of university. I’m fortunate that the team I work with ZALORA goes beyond being mere colleagues; some have become cherished friends. The supportive and collaborative environment makes every day enjoyable and encourages personal and professional growth. 

At ZALORA, I feel comfortable asking questions and exploring new opportunities. I appreciate the fact that I can receive valuable guidance and constructive feedback from my managers, which enables me to consistently nurture my personal growth journey. Managers in ZALORA also conduct regular check-ins with team members to discuss workload, challenges, and career goals. These conversations have provided us an avenue for addressing concerns and ensuring that we feel supported.

My colleagues and mentors have also provided me with unwavering support and guidance in navigating the uncertainty in transitioning into the working world. This supportive and collaborative culture that transcends departmental boundaries not only helps us overcome obstacles but also propels us to set and achieve even greater heights in pursuit of our collective goals.

ZALORA’s supportive and inclusive culture goes beyond its people, it also prioritizes work-life balance and flexible work arrangements. 

Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is a key priority in ZALORA. The culture encourages employees to manage their workload effectively and respect personal time. This allows me to recharge and spend quality time with my family and friends.

Flexible work arrangements are also offered at ZALORA, including options for remote work. This flexibility has been instrumental in reducing work-related stress and accommodating personal needs. Such an arrangement is truly remarkable to me. Prior to joining ZALORA, I could have never imagined having a work-from-home setup where I spend four days working remotely!

I am highly appreciative and motivated by the supportive and inclusive culture at ZALORA. It has not only allowed me to develop as a professional but as a well-rounded individual too!
