SINGAPORE: Singapore will develop a new career conversion programme that will equip human resource (HR) professionals with skills and knowledge in innovative fields, such as HR analytics, strategic workforce planning, and HR technology.
Workforce Singapore, a government-backed training body, will roll out the upskilling programme in June. It aims to promote lifelong learning among Singaporean workers as they seek new career opportunities.
“The government’s effort to redesign jobs and reskill HR professionals as employees return to the workplace post-covid is expected to help ease the labour crunch,” Mayumi Soh of Pinsent Masons MPillay, the Singapore joint law venture between MPillay and Pinsent Masons, said:
The Singapore National Employers Federation and NTUC LearningHub, a provider of continuing education and training, will run the program. Meanwhile, the Singaporean government, the Institute for Human Resource Professionals (IHRP), and the Singapore Human Resources Institute will work together to introduce a new points-based work pass assessment framework and other assessment tools to the HR community.
