The ceremony to inaugurate the new office was attended by Human Resources, held at the Lifelong Learning Institute in Eunos. Also marking the occasion was the conferment of IHRP certifications to 300 HR practitioners for this year.

Singapore’s second minister for manpower, Josephine Teo, congratulated the newly-minted HR professionals, adding: “This increasing pool of certified HR practitioners is already making a difference to their workplaces, equipped with their new knowledge, and a better understanding of effective HR practices – they are applying their competencies and skills to support the business.”
