Programme Overview

Local employment growth has been dampened in recent years by a structural slowdown in the growth of the local work force, and cyclical weakness in the economy due to the subdued global economic conditions, with the impact varied across sectors. Going forward, local employment growth is expected to continue to be modest.

With economic cycles shortening and changes occurring more quickly, there is now more pressure on people to adapt. At the individual level, employees have to understand that new skills are constantly needed as technologies change rapidly. This applies even to new growth sectors such as ICT. It is therefore essential for employees, regardless of sector they work in, to adopt an open mind towards change, and have a willingness to learn or relearn to stay relevant and cope with changes.

What exactly is the employment landscape going to be like in 2017, what are some of the skillsets required to stay relevant, and what are some of the support provided by the Government to help our workforce?
