With the nation’s push towards enterprise development, Enterprise Singapore came up with a new grant that is specifically aimed at helping SMEs to adopt innovative HR technologies.

Under this pilot, four areas of HR technology solutions for SMEs were identified.

  1. Employee Engagement

  3. Learning and Development, and
  4. Recruitment and Selection

Companies can look forward to savings in costs and resources by adopting the right tools and solutions to implement operational HR activities, such as conducting employee surveys and benefits administration.
