The SkillsFuture Study Awards equip Singaporeans with the skills needed to benefit from quality jobs created by our economy. As Singapore continues our transition to an innovation-driven economy, new skills and competencies among Singaporeans will be in demand. Jobs are also evolving with new functions and existing ones requiring updated skillsets.
The SkillsFuture Study Awards encourage Singaporeans to develop and deepen specialist skills needed by future economic growth sectors or in areas of demand. It also supports Singaporeans who already have deep specialist skills to develop other competencies.
People will increasingly be the differentiating factor for competitive and sustainable organisations. As Singapore’s economy transforms, organisations that value their “human capital” and invest in talent development will be in a better position to take advantage of emerging opportunities and remain competitive.
Human Resource (HR) professionals play a key role in enabling human capital development in their organisations. Acting as strategic business partners to the CEO, HR professionals can develop and implement effective and progressive people practices that help their organisations attract, develop and retain talent. Their work has a direct impact on the well-being and development of the organisation’s workforce, and is critical to Singapore’s next phase of growth.
The SkillsFuture Study Award for HR is one of the key initiatives under the HR Industry Manpower Plan (HRIMP) to strengthen the HR profession in Singapore. It supports HR professionals to continually deepen their skills in the sector, allowing them to be more effective in developing people strategies that benefit the workforce and support business transformation.
