Sustainable Employment – Achieving Purposeful Business Success Together
The Company of Good and NVPC are pleased to support the Singapore Business Federation (SBF)'s conference on "Sustainable Employment - Achieving Purposeful Business Success Together".
As the apex business chamber, SBF recognises that the developments in technology, demographics, and societal values will change the way businesses operate and succeed. In order to achieve healthy growth in the long term, business leaders have started to think more deeply about the impact of their strategies and policies on their employees, business ecosystem, and communities. Businesses have an important part to play in fostering the very environment that they operate in.
To that end, SBF is putting together a paper to explore the role of businesses in facilitating sustainable employment for three vulnerable segments of the workforce – the low income, mature workers, and the Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians (PMETs) group at risk of being displaced due to technology and disruption.
A core committee helmed by Ms Goh Swee Chen, former Chairman of the Shell Companies in Singapore and President of the Global Compact Network Singapore, and comprising an inclusive mix of representatives from businesses, business chambers and trade associations, community organisations, NGOs, think-tanks, academia, and members of the public was formed in February this year. The recommendations of the core committee and a call for action by the business community will be launched in November and discussed at the conference.
Date : 22 November 2019
Time : 9.00am to 12.30pm
Venue : Village Hotel Sentosa
Guest-of-Honour : President Halimah Yacob
