Productivity – the buzzword of the Singapore economy since time immemorial.
In the beginning, it was very much centred on the industrial age that we were in.
This means getting operators to adopt new equipment, change to new workflows or simply making the production area more ergonomic so you save previous minutes which could be channelled to making more widgets.
And that was decades ago.
In the digital age where almost everybody has a digital device to work on, the kind of productivity pursuit is very different.
It is tough not to read another technology article without Artificial Intelligence (AI) being mentioned. To that extent, it is not surprising to see companies using that word more and more loosely. On one spectrum, you have Oracle CEO Mark Hurd , who said that “it’s just nonsense” to believe that many tech companies are serious about their efforts to develop AI technology. And you also have companies like Google , which made the commitment to prioritise AI a couple of years ago. Artificial intelligence (AI), as a recruitment tool, has been rapidly rising and revolutionizing the recruiting process.
Similarly to sales representatives and marketers that had profited from automation tools such as
and HubSpot , recruiters are now progressively turning to AI for hiring talents. Salesforce
Today, the recruitment automation scene incorporates approximately 70 different types of tools such as
, and more. Gusto, Culture Amp, Luminoso, Smashfly, BreezyHR

Work is constantly evolving and in today’s fast paced environment, it can sometimes be hard to deal with everyday tasks and deadlines.
With the technology being omnipresent, new products, such as tools or apps are being developed daily and some of them can help you boost your efficiency and better organize your line of business.
This trend of constant digital improvement has overtaken the world by storm.
The choices are endless and so it has become almost impossible to find the right tool to help you finish your job faster.
In conjunction to MDIS Southern Cross University Programme information session, I will be guest speaking on the industries to look out for in 2015.
