Exploring Impactful Perspectives in Workplace Learning
Similarly, changes are also needed to support Singapore's evolving skills training requirements. This was one of the key points highlighted during the inaugural Workplace Learning Conference.
The conference, themed “Delivering Enterprise Transformation through Workplace Learning”, was held on 26 April 2022. It was jointly-organised by the National Centre of Excellence for Workplace Learning (NACE) Centres and supported by SkillsFuture Singapore.
Attendees of the conference gained insights from companies with successful workplace learning practices. The perspectives shared included strategies to improve employee retention and performance, best practices to stay competitive, and steps to begin adopting workplace learning in an organisation.
Recognising the Key Drivers of Success
In his opening address, Guest-of-Honour, Mr Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Education, shared insights on how workplace learning can enable companies to grow and seize new opportunities. Minister Chan also emphasised the importance of investing in employees, commending nine companies for their exemplary workplace learning cultures.
These nine companies were recipients of the National Workplace Learning Certification Awards, which were presented during the conference. This year, the recipients span industries such as security, healthcare and logistics. Among the recipients, positive results can already be observed, with ST Logistics forecasting higher retention rates and productivity after incorporating workplace learning for employees at all levels.
