Topics include digital learning programmes include topics such as data analytics, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, blockchain and cybersecurity, among others.

CapitaLand signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with SISEU and NTUC at a ceremony held at CapitaLand’s Learning Festival at Capital Tower.

“As companies digitalise and transform, it is equally important for employees to be well equipped with the necessary competencies to leverage technology to be even more productive. Our union leaders can leverage the CTCs as a ground-up approach to ensure that employees are aligned with a company’s transformation efforts, help address any skills gaps, and encourage both parties to grow and succeed together,” Dr. Koh commented about the MOU.
