Enterprise & Workforce Transformation Webinar
23 February @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
23 February 2022, Wednesday – As an advocate for growth and transformation, ASPRI firmly believes the way to progress collectively is by developing business growth capabilities. With rising business cost, manpower shortages, and disruptions to the hiring process caused by COVID-19, the need to transform one’s business model is more prevalent than ever.
To help our member companies in their transformation journey and encourage the next phase of growth, ASPRI has partnered with Enterprise Singapore (ESG) and Workforce Singapore (WSG) and organised a webinar to share on the various support they can tap on.
Firstly, ESG introduced its Enterprise Leadership for Transformation (ELT) Programme. It is a 1-year programme which supports promising small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) leaders in their business transformation goals through modular learning and business coaching. First announced by Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat at Budget 2020, the ELT Programme is administered by a network of partners including Institute of Higher Learning (IHL), financial institutions and industry experts.
Mr Lawrence Nah, General Manager of Shing Leck Engineering Service Pte Ltd, shared his experiences of undergoing the ELT Programme. “As an SME leader, it can be a lonely experience at times. After enrolling into the programme, I realized there were so many of us out there. There was a sense of camaraderie and I felt at ease knowing we were all in it together,” Mr Nah said. Despite the 1-year commitment, he was grateful to have undergone the programme as he found it to be enriching experience. For costing and application instructions, please refer to this deck.
WSG then shared on three programmes for workforce transformation. Firstly, the Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG-JR) encourages companies to implement Job Redesign (JR) initiatives, with support from pre-approved JR Consultants to redesign work processes, tasks, and responsibilities. This helps companies to enhance quality of jobs, making jobs more productive and attractive for employees, and allows companies to drive business and workforce transformation.
Next, the Career Conversion Programme (CCP) trains and facilitates the placements of mid-career switchers to meet one’s business needs. It is a career conversion programme for professionals, managers, executives, and technicians (PMETs) and Rank-and-File (RnF) workers to undergo skills conversion and move into new sectors or job roles with good prospects and opportunities for progression.
Last but not least, the Capability Transfer Programme (CTP) seeks to improve local-foreign workforce complementarity by facilitating the transfer of capabilities from foreign specialists to locals. This encourages companies to develop and acquire new capabilities in Singapore by ensuring that there is sustainable supply of Singaporeans with the requisite skillsets. For funding and more details, please refer to this deck.
ASPRI would like to thank our members, ESG, and WSG for making this webinar possible. We hope to see you in future events!
