NTUC’ e2i is the empowering network for workers and employers seeking employment and employability solutions. 

As we embark on the new normal, we see employees and employers embracing and designing the future of work. Building on the lessons learnt over the past few months, how has employment and employability changed? 

This session will provide you with insights to: 

  • The current employment trends
  • The types of reskilling and upskilling conversations that you should have in order to support the jobs of tomorrow
  • What employers can do to ensure their employees continue to be employable
  • What you can do to ensure employability/job security

Gilbert Tan, CEO of e2i (Employment and Employability Institute)

Mr Gilbert Tan joined NTUC’s e2i in 2009 to create solutions for better employment and employability through providing better jobs, developing better skills, and improving companies’ productivity and gain sharing for workers. Since then, e2i has launched the Inclusive Growth Program to drive productivity-led wage increases for low wage workers and led the way with professional development programmes to enhance the capabilities of PMETs (Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians). In addition to deepening skills, e2i also equips PMETs with employability and horizontal skills enabling them to stay relevant and progress within or across sectors. Under his leadership, e2i pioneered partnerships with Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs), Trade Associations and Chambers, and community groups to bring career coaching, training advisory services and industry transformation solutions to more Singaporeans. With its expanding role, e2i provides touchpoints at the HDB Hub in Toa Payoh, Central Business District and localised Social Service Offices to effectively reach out to more job seekers, working people, employers and partners in these regions. New initiatives his team developed include the U Career Network and ULeap future of learning.
