27 Mar 2019: WSG’s Employers Connect Session – Attract and Retain the Right Talent

Lifelong Learning Institute, Level 3, Theatre Lounge (11 Eunos Road 8, Singapore 408601)

The Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) in support of Workforce Singapore (WSG) would like to encourage all employers to participate in WSG’s upcoming Employers Connect held on 27 March 2019 (Wednesday) titled “Attract and Retain the Right Talent”.

One of the perennial economic constraints that Singapore faces is its tight labour market, mainly due to low birth rate, ageing population and overreliance on foreign workers. The Government recently announced that the foreign worker quota for the services sector will be cut to 35% by 2021, to ensure Singaporeans continue to have “good jobs and opportunities” (Budget 2019).

It is not surprising that the topic of manpower challenges and talent management remain as top issues faced by businesses in Singapore.

Businesses and in particular, SMEs, face an unenviable position in this race to attract talent. Large firms benefit from having greater financial resources, and more recognisable brand names. They further provide more opportunities for advancement within an organisation:

-          Faced with these disadvantages, how can SMEs remain competitive in a bid to attract and retain talent?

-          How can businesses, especially SMEs tap into the various programmes and schemes such as the Adapt & Grow to help with their manpower challenges?

-          How can businesses design reward systems, provide meaningful and suitable work, motivate their employees to retain their talents?


Learning Outcomes

-          Design an integrated talent management strategy and system aligned with business goals and objectives

-          Adopt technology enablers to support talent management system and strategy

-          Develop and implement engagement activities do you apply to motivate and retain your talents

-          Change the CEO’s and Senior Management’s attitude towards talent management

-          Design a suitable package for the right candidate in an SME environment

-          Understand EVPs and how to attract millennials

-          Respond quickly to changing skill set requirements and business environment
