Many of us have heard of SkillsFuture and SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) – the agency driving the national movement, and are keen to know about their grant schemes.
The SSG Enterprise Engagement Office has created a simple guide to some of their popular schemes. Employers who are keen to find out more about the SSG skills development initiatives, you could email them at [email protected].
This year, the SME Symposium discusses SMEs and their aspirations to become globally competitive in the era of Industrial Revolution 4.0. Participants can look forward to intellectually-stimulating dialogue and plenary sessions on business transformation through change management.
I will be moderating the panel discussion related to Strategic Talent Development to Enable and Sustain
Business Transformation Improvements.
What is productivity?
Entrepreneurs are possibly one of the most productive people in Singapore because when you’re an entrepreneur, time = money.
No one is going to pay you overtime hours, and the faster and more effective you get routine tasks done, the more time you can spend on your next business venture or developing a new business idea.
Saying that the nature of work has changed is an understatement.
Digital technology is disrupting business models and radically changing workplaces and how work is done. Organisations are becoming flatter, and millennials who make up more than half of the workforce, are redefining employer loyalty, amongst other things.
And we have not even discussed the impact of AI and Robotics on jobs.

What a 2017 it had been for HR Tech.
Since my inaugural Singapore HR Tech Market Map in 2017, the landscape has evolved quite a fair bit.
Compared to my 2018 update, there has been a huge gravitation towards employee engagement and analytics.
Businesses no matter how large or small they are are taking employee perks into consideration when looking for ways to improve the employee experience.
According to a 2015 Glassdoor report, employees are prioritizing them over money, saying they would rather receive stronger benefits than a pay raise. This is a significant and new way of thinking about our jobs that can no longer be ignored.
Recorded video interviews are a bit of a new concept in the recruitment space. For decades, companies relied upon the face-to-face interview to find the right employee.
It’s the go-to method in terms of pulling the trigger on a hire as an employer will want to have a deep and meaningful conversation before they offer a candidate a job.
