End of Singapore Talent & Recruitment Show 2017

As Singapore continues to shift to the new economy, challenges continue to arise in the areas of human capital development, which is taking stock of Singapore’s current human capital resources and its ability to drive future economic growth.

By questioning whether Singapore’s Human Capital is ready for the new economy, both the public and private sectors have discovered that while during the past 40 years Singapore has been successful in attracting foreign investment through the anchor of MNC’s and foreign labour – that this model of borrowed market capabilities can no longer guarantee Singapore’s long-term economic competitiveness. Therefore, in order for Singapore to sustain their competitiveness in the new economy, its ability to develop sustainable competiveness depends on whether their human capital is able to develop to its fullest extent and realise its potential.

HRM Asia reached out to HR professionals to understand how this shift is affecting their ability to manage and recruit skilled talent who can meet the demands of the new economy. We found that many HR professionals face the same challenges, including:

  • Skills shortages
  • Restrictions from foreign worker laws,
  • A lack of know-how for exploring new-talent sources
  • Technological disruption from tools such as social media; and
  • A general lack of understanding of how the new economy will implicate the HR profession
Undoubtedly we identified a common theme; being the acknowledgement that as a result of this rapid shift - HR professionals are not equipped with the skills to effectively attract, recruit and develop the workforce for the New Economy.

This brings us to the Singapore Talent and Recruitment Show!

This 2 day event featuring 35 + speakers, x2 conference streams and a masterclass has been designed to equip HR professionals with the latest strategies and ideas that will enable them to attract, recruit and develop the Workforce for the New Economy.
