Develop Talents for Future-ready Workforce

The end of 2020 is approaching, and now it’s the time to face the future. As an HR, are you ready to bring your organization forward?

Before the New Normal brought by COVID19, we were adjusting to the Industrial Revolution 4.0. It seems like today, all HRs are pushed to live in the fast lane, thanks to the non-stop disruption here and there. Disruption isn’t the same as a distraction - or at least, if we can manage it well.

Earlier this year, all prestigious recipients of SkillsFuture Employer Awards were gathered in Singapore to conduct a symposium to share their organisations’ most effective practices. From their key takeaways, we can see some concerns toward the issue of adaptability to what the future holds:

Don't forget to track and measure
From employee retention to career mapping as part of talent planning, make sure all your HR strategies are measurable easily so the progress can be tracked real-time for further decision-making.


Have a reliable HR dashboards
Typical HR dashboards will come handy constantly, for example: in tracking employee engagement, succession planning, talent management, etc.


Build a culture for conversational HR
Regular conversations with staff are essential. Talk to your employee about their personal goals and ambitions, and not just their professional goals, as the two are interlinked.

HR must be aligned with the business.
As HR, finds ways to impact company performance, and yet empower line managers to speak the language of HR (through their KPIs).


Get the team to write their own job descriptions
This enabled them to grow beyond current needs, and add the-extra-mile elements as part of their daily work and performance.

So, are your HR team ready to handle future challenges?
