HOON DING YU

2017 Scholarship Recipient

"The SSG-WSG scholarship stood out for me as I wanted to be part of the two agencies' efforts in working together with Singaporeans on their lifelong learning and employability journey. Having spent time in both agencies, I have met many friendly colleagues and this translates to an open work environment as colleagues across different divisions share ideas and collaborate on different projects."

"There is an open culture in SSG-WSG, where people are receptive to feedback. You will find it easy to spark spontaneous conversations with your superiors and colleagues. There is generally a good balance of work and play, with various staff events happening regularly. I try to join whenever I can, as it is a great chance to meet new people and build rapport with your teammates. Of course, we work as hard as we play: my colleagues always go the extra mile to deliver in their roles. Overall, it is a vibrant organisation."

2014 Scholarship Recipient

"At SSG and WSG, we constantly strive to innovate and refine our programmes and initiatives to ensure relevance to the local workforce. It is rewarding to have my recommendations taken into consideration at the senior management-level, especially when the work we do in both agencies has a direct impact on individuals and employers. The bosses encourage an open culture of communication where the staff members are free to voice opinions on the effectiveness of our programmes."

2015 Scholarship Recipient

"Aspiring scholars should join SSG-WSG if they want to better the lives of fellow Singaporeans as our core work directly supports them in their employment outcomes and in enhancing their employability through skills upgrading. Scholars can expect to be challenged in their critical thinking skills as we constantly work on shaping the rapidly-changing employment and training landscape.

We also place strong emphasis on promoting a culture of lifelong learning through our year-long SSG-WSG joint activities where staff are encouraged to learn at work and beyond work, even as we are hard at work fulfilling SSG/WSG's mission."
