OCBC launches comprehensive sustainability training
The second phase OCBC Future Smart Programme has an investment of S$30 million over the next three years.
OCBC Bank rolled out its comprehensive suite of sustainability training modules as part of its sustainability initiatives that will help prepare its employees for the future workplace and upgrade their skills.
This is part of the second phase of the OCBC Future Smart Programme for its 30,000 employees across OCBC Group including overseas operations such as Malaysia, Indonesia, China, and Hong Kong, with an investment of S$30 million over the next three years. The first launch in 2018 was backed by a S$20 million investment.
Jason Ho, OCBC Bank's executive vice president and head of Group Human Resources, the Future Smart Programme was created to “upskill or reskill every employee to stay relevant for the future workplace.”
“While technology and digital skills are the prevailing skillsets that most employees would require in the future, other areas such as sustainability and even the "softer" skills such as emotional and mental wellness, collaboration, agility, and critical thinking are equally important aspects in developing a well-rounded employee,” he said.
“New threats to the business emerge continuously. We are confident that as long as we continue to learn, unlearn, and re-learn as an organisation, we will be able to turn threats into opportunities. By investing in our people, equipping them with the competencies and mindset, we empower them to be resilient,” he added.
