by ChannelNewsAsia

Last week, authorities raised the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) to orange, following several cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) with no links to other cases.

How did organisations and people react and cope? How well is Singapore adjusting to this new phase in battling the virus?

I joined Jeremy Lim of Oliver Wyman & Clarence Tam of NUS Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health to discuss these issues with Jaime Ho on Heart of the Matter.

The biggest work-from-home exercise may have just begun

How ready is Singapore?

SINGAPORE: For a long time, flexible working arrangements allowing staff to work from home have been seen as a privilege, to attract late-rising millennials, boost workplace diversity and retain staff with family commitments, especially new mothers.

Yet because of the spread of the novel coronavirus, such arrangements are no longer a bonus but a necessity for businesses striving to keep up operations while implementing segregation of critical business units to minimise the risk of a contagion.

For weeks, companies had to square away fresh challenges arising from the spread of this infectious disease, including reviewing business trips to and from China, and complying with Leave of Absence requirements.

How to Master Your Goal Setting Strategy

Reaching success takes time, determination, and dedication, and even more so, planning. Research shows that those who set goals are 10 times more successful than those who don’t. 

If you are ready to hit the ground running towards your goals, we have created a few go-to tips to reaching any goal you have in mind. 

 

1. Understand Each Purpose

Whether your goal is to cook more at home or workout at least four times a week, understand how your goal will, and can, benefit you.

Don’t lead millennials, let them lead you

In our time societal change is so rapid that the old are holding back and the young are rushing forward. As a result, we are too far apart to hear and understand each other.

Our generations have become disjointed.

The post-WWII generation was dubbed “Baby boomers” as a name for the changes society underwent at the time.

Today we use the term “Millennials” to describe those who reached adulthood at the start of the new millennium.

Labeling groups of people has its risks.

Discovering and Developing Data Scientists

Interview with Jackie Tan, Co-Founder at UpLevel

As every company start making use of data, the roles are opening up much faster than the schools can teach.
