Create Changing Career Perspectives - UNACOV Career Webinar
Free preview
Despite the progressive roll back of the Singapore’s Circuit Breaker in June 2020 that allows majority if not all of businesses to resume operations, the outlook for many organizations is still highly uncertain.

A recent survey by SSON in collaboration with Edgeverve, Assistedge and Infosys-BPM Ltd points out that businesses report 30% increase in delayed collection of sales revenue, 14% increase in cost of operations and 20% increase in gaps in back office service delivery. These statistics reiterate the difficulties for many businesses in “returning to normal” which in turn could impact hiring decisions and employment opportunities.

Among the working population, PMETs (Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians) forming more than 50% of the Singapore’s workforce is the group that faces greater risk to redundancy and retrenchment based on past years’ evidence.

The webinar shares strategies for PMETs on:

1. How to rise above this environment of uncertainty and volatility
2. How to differentiate themselves from the crowd at the workplace
3. What to do in times of such business uncertainty and employment risks
4. What are the the possible action plans if your employment has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic

Redesign Your Life Through Clarity - UNACOV Career Webinar
Free preview
Synopsis
“Like a diamond, the more clarity we have, the more value we bring.” - Ruth Saw

The current world is changing so rapidly that it causes one to compare, compete or even get confused. How do we navigate life effectively through change and yet step into a fulfilling, satisfying life?
Clarity is key. It is the future of ‘personal authority’. Finding clarity has become a necessity, not a good-to-have. Just like shooting an arrow, we pull back to find clarity so that we can propel forward with speed. More than ever, we need to look within to find that clarity.

COVID-19 has given us this opportunity to settle and find the clarity we need, to create the future we want. Clarity will free us from comparing ourselves with others. It will help us to move past our doubts to step into our destiny.

In this webinar, you’ll find simple exercises to understand yourself and practical insights on finding clarity that leads to action.


Discover how to:

Know yourself, your possible strengths and blind-spots

Influence others just the way you are

Uncover your why

Create a clear path of action and maximise your time

Feel liberated and find the confidence to be who you are meant to be!
