How to Foster a Future-ready Workplace
As Singapore leverages technology to drive our Smart Nation initiatives, there is a continuous need to build a pool of manpower with critical skill sets and domain knowledge to support these initiatives.
PUT PEOPLE AS OUR PRIORITY
ST Electronics’ leading position in innovation hinges on the deep experience and knowledge of our employees whom we value – first as an individual, then as an employee. Recognising the importance of attracting, developing and retaining employees of diversified profiles and skill sets, we make it a point to ensure that every employee is competently equipped with the right skill and knowledge to be personally and professionally fulfilled every time he or she takes on and completes a job.
BUILD A CONTINUOUS LEARNING WORK CULTURE
Faced with an ageing population, a critical skill shortage for smart city initiatives, a growing demand for new skills as well as an international competition for human capital, ST Electronics has chosen to cast the net wider by seeking out new hires who have the capacity to learn new skills and retrain existing employees who have the potential to take on new roles. Through the design of training programmes which are suitable for the career development and growth requirements of each employee, we encourage and motivate new and existing employees to embrace continuous learning and development throughout their career.
Beyond equipping employees with the appropriate technical skills and knowledge, we also look to strengthen their other skillsets through numerous creativity and innovation platforms. Some examples include Ideas Generating Platforms, Exploratory Incubation Funding, Community of Good Practices, Technology Open House, Sharing Sessions and Thought Leadership Sessions.
