Productivity has been, and will continue to be, at the front and centre of our economic transformation. The longer we put off the real changes that need to be made in embracing a productivity-centred work culture, the further behind we will be compared with our global competitors. Hear from productivity experts, and discuss with industry peers on the critical areas businesses must work on to transform and achieve quality growth.

Join us for a thought-provoking panel discussion, where industry professionals from various fields will come together to discuss how processes, innovation, technology/ automation and manpower optimisation bring about that much needed productivity boost.

Also, find out more about the latest government schemes, training and courses available. Speak to productivity consultants about how to harness these for your specific business needs!

Organised by: MediaCorp, with support from National Productivity and Continuing Education Council (NPCEC)
