A new joint task force, comprising union and industry representatives, will look into the employability and upskilling of professionals, managers and executives (PMEs), particularly older ones, to help them stay relevant for the new economy.
Announcing this yesterday, National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) secretary-general Ng Chee Meng said the group will also work with the Government to review policies impacting PMEs and conduct research to gain insight into future trends, jobs and skills.
Through these engagements, it aims to provide recommendations on government policies and the best human resource practices, and enable PME training by May 1 next year.
