Introduction

Uncertainty is the dominant theme for the global economy in 2017. In the face of ongoing geopolitical uncertainty and financial market volatility in developed and emerging countries, organisations need to take a learning and adaptive approach to refine their business strategies.

Join us at the CEO Breakfast talk and see how more than 200 companies have followed a systematic methodology to achieve significant business growth and productivity improvements of up to 200%.

From this session, you will uncover effective strategies for your business:

  • Operational Transformation – improve the processes and the way people work in your organisation to be better, faster and cheaper.
  • Core Transformation – strengthen and extend the core “building blocks” of your business model.
  • Strategic Transformation – create a new business model.

With effect from 19 May 2017, SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) will revise the SkillsFuture Credit (SFC) claims processes to reduce the risk of abuse. Under the new process, while individuals will continue to submit SFC claims, all SFC payments by SSG will be made to training providers instead of individuals. Training providers will collect nett fees from individuals, after offsetting the SFC that will be used.

Under this payment mode, individuals are allowed to make claims up to 60 days before their start of the course till the day of course commencement with effect from 21 Apr 2017. This window period is sufficient for individuals to make their claims to facilitate earlier course registration. When making claims, you should inform your Training Provider on the intention to utilise your SkillsFuture Credit and request for the relevant amount to be offset against the qualifying course fees. You must then submit the claim via the SkillsFuture Credit Portal to pay the relevant credit amount to the Training Provider for your registered course.

Individuals can also visit any of the Workforce Singapore (WSG) Career Centres (click here for locations) to collect forms for manual claim submissions.
