    – Ms Michelle Lim, Chief Operating Officer, JobsCentral


    "When a group of students come together with a common passion, goal and purpose, the resulting synergy produces work that is of higher quality and creativity. RP's Media Lab is a great example of creating a space that allows this environment to thrive. The Mass Communication students that have been working with us on communications for the Habitat-Barclays Bare Your Sole 2013 event have shown great enthusiasm, strong teamwork and drive to deliver quality work."

    Diploma in Human Resource Management with Psychology  

    “The Diploma in Human Resource Management with Psychology offered by Republic Polytechnic will groom a pool of competent local HR practitioners with formal HR training to provide functional HR operations support to strategic HR leaders in both large and small organisations. Graduates would be prepared for the workplace through the combination of knowledge and practical application-based components aligned to the HR/BM/LPM Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) competencies as well as their industry attachment. We are pleased to be working with Republic Polytechnic to enhance the work-readiness of their graduates and explore the possibilities of issuing HR/BM/LPM WSQ certifications to graduates.”
    – Ms Selena Hyunh, Deputy Director, Creative and Professional Services, Singapore Workforce Development Agency


    "The curriculum for Republic Polytechnic’s Diploma in Human Resource Management with Psychology had been designed to meet the manpower needs of industry, especially Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) with an international focus. The programme will be relevant to larger SMEs, especially those with international operations or regional expansion plans.”
    – Mr Chan Chong Beng, President, Association of Small and Medium Enterprises


    “The diploma programme and curriculum are well thought out. There is definitely a need for HR manpower, especially at the SME level where the critical mass is not large enough to warrant expensive and highly qualified HR professionals. But HR systems and guidance are always necessary for good manpower recruitment and maintenance. This early planning from Republic Poly will mean we can begin to meet SMEs’ needs in 3–4 years with diploma holders. This is really good thinking and I fully endorse it.”
    – Ms Cheah Kim Lean, Founder and CEO, Acorn Marketing and Research Consultants


    “The Diploma in Human Resource Management with Psychology will help meet the manpower needs of the industry. The ability to work with diverse cultures and an understanding of human motivations and behaviors will enhance the graduates’ ability to work effectively as HR practitioners. The programme will help to produce a pipeline of HR talent to support local enterprises in growing their businesses, particularly in their international or regional expansion.”
    – Darshan Singh, Director, Human Capital, SPRING Singapore

    “The Launch of Republic Polytechnic’s Diploma in Human Resource Management with Psychology is a good initiative. It should have come sooner. If trained well, students can use what they have learnt from the course to execute psychometric tests at interviews and for talent management with a higher rate of success. With Psychology training, HR personnel can offer more than just administrative services, they can venture into career counseling, and even conduct workshops and seminars to help employees cope with work life balances, depression and other challenges.”
    - Pam Vas, Finance Project Manager, Hewlett Packard Asia Pacific Pte Ltd


    “The curricula for Republic Polytechnic’s new Diploma in Human Resource Management with Psychology appears comprehensive. The prospects of these HR students are promising, especially with their training for the international corporate landscape and understanding of human motivations and behaviors. Such knowledge and skills-set will become invaluable for the ever complex business environment ahead. They will be more ready to support multinational organizations in Asia in the management of the multi-faceted workforce.

    We’ll be pleased to accept students from the DHRMP for work attachments to partner RP in providing these students the opportunity to gain real insights and put to practice what they learn from the course.”
    - Nancy Ng-Lee, Head, Group HR, Mapletree Investments Pte Ltd

    "We are pleased to know that RP has introduced this programme to equip students with HR and business fundamentals that will prepare them well for various job opportunities in the future. This curriculum sufficiently provides the relevant knowledge and practical training that are vital for the students to succeed as HR practitioners. We would be pleased to consider DHRMP graduates to join us in building a career in our company."

    "RP interns are a great benefit to our company. Hardworking bunch!"
    - Samantha Pereira, Assistant Editor, Campus Magazine
    "We have had two interns from RP's SMC in my company in the past few years - they have been a source of joy.  I would rank very high amongst the almost 50 interns we have had in our company over the years - who were mostly from local and overseas universities.  So, what is it that sets them apart?  In my assessment, three things: a practical, hands-on approach to work and problem solving; a deep desire to learn and a hunger to succeed knowing it's a rough road ahead; and a humility that allows them to roll-up their sleeves and take on menial tasks with dignity and accept criticism positively.  All leaders of organizations will agree that these qualities are important yet increasingly rare today, especially when we look at retention and ROI.  RP's SMC must be doing something right to produce such students."
