Don’t wait for your job extinction

The job market of the future is extremely gloomy.

We have websites that design itself (good bye web designers), we can soon detect cancer and other health issues with just a few drops of blood (adios health lab technicians) and in the near future, computers that would think just like a human being (farewell brains?)

This is progress but progress that might inevitably affect your ability to continue to draw that stable paycheck.

What I learned from TVB artistes at StarHub/TVB Awards 2014

I was at StarHub TVB awards yesterday over at Marina Bay Sands. It’s my first time attending a media award ceremony and the feelings of seeing some of my favorite TVB artistes in real life is pretty surreal.

It reminded me of myself 14 years ago. I was really enthusiastic about getting into the entertainment scene.

I am delighted to be invited by SMBA to share my experience and expertise in a recruitment industry. I will be providing behind-the-scene insights and the secret to success for budding HR entrepreneurs looking to start their own business.

In addition, I will also be providing tips for the students on the things that employers look out for during interviews to maximize one’s chances of getting employed.

15Five – employee engagement made easy

15Five is a simple and powerful way to gather weekly insight into your employees’ success, challenges, ideas, and morale.

Employees spend about 15 minutes each week answering a few simple questions that take managers 5 minutes to read, review, and provide feedback.

I came across 15Five via an article by their CEO David Hassell.

10 lessons managers should learn from their mothers

With Mother’s Day just past, I wonder how many of us remember the lessons our mothers taught us about life management.

Here are 10 lessons which all managers should learn from their mothers:

1. Love what you do

Passion for what you do sustains you a long way, through challenges big and small, and keeps you persevering towards that 5, 10, 20 year objective you are working so hard towards.

Have we forgotten the meaning of May Day?

To many of us, May Day is a brief respite between Good Friday and Vesak Day, a public holiday where we get to rest and spend with family and friends.

In our never-ending quest to hit our KPIs, clear our workload and juggle work and life, I wonder how many of us are curious why May Day is important enough to be gazetted as a Public Holiday just like Chinese New Year, Hari Raya and Deepavali.
