Consulting Project to Adopt Skills Framework

Ensuring that you get the talent that you need

Skills Framework was launched as a part of the Industry Transformation Map (ITM) for various sectors in Singapore. One of its primary aims is to publicise career opportunities in the economy and prepare job seekers with the relevant skills needed for the jobs. Companies can benefit from the Skills Framework in the following ways:

  • Profile of the industry sector is raised and visible to job seekers
  • More prepared job seekers as they have prior knowledge of the job requirements
  • Knowledge and ability statements can be used to support recruitment and selection
  • Work standards can be defined to enforce consistent performance
  • Strengths of employees can be identified and developed
  • Improvement areas can be identified to close the gap
  • Career progression paths can be created to motivate and sustain employment


However, companies need to be aware of the issues relating to Relevance (R), Frequency (F) and Depth (D) when adopting the Skills Framework and address them carefully as part of the implementation.
