JustLogin Pte Ltd and Institute of Technical Education (ITE) signed a Letter of Collaboration (LOC) to collaborate in the field of Human Resource education and training, using JustLogin’s HR software for competency development of ITE students and staff.
Singapore,11 February 2019- Students in the field of Human Resources (HR) at Institute of Technical Education (ITE) will soon be able to hone skills from the latest HR cloud solution software and be workforce ready for their HR career upon graduation.
A Letter of Collaboration (LOC) was signed by Dr. Goh Mong Song, Principal of ITE College West and Mr. Kwa Kim Chiong, CEO of JustLogin on 31 January 2019 at the ITE College West campus. This exclusive partnership with ITE will be JustLogin’s first collaboration with an educational institution to train young Singaporeans and staff with up-to-date HR capabilities. The collaboration is mainly on these points:
- Providing JustLogin’s HR software to all ITE students and staff while working with them to create case scenarios to facilitate learning.
- Training of ITE staff to support the development of a curriculum that integrates JustLogin’s HR software into the learning and assessment.
- To promote trained ITE students for internship placements and job opportunities.
“The collaboration with JustLogin is very important to us as it represents our initiative to introduce more cloud-based solutions to our team of staff and students,” said Dr Goh Mong Song, Principal, ITE College West.
“The tight labor market and the drive to look for the best talent will put more emphasis for companies to focus on HR,” Dr. Goh said. “We feel that there is a lot of potentials for our students to carve a niche for themselves in the HR sector.”
“The whole landscape for HR has changed…We have to rethink for our business students – what jobs they will be getting; what kind of environment they will be working in; and if the environment changes, how can we reflect the external environmental change within our environment internally (in ITE).”
“We’re very happy with this collaboration,” Dr Goh said. “Going forward there are more things we can learn from JustLogin, and hopefully through the whole process, our students will be the main beneficiary. They will be better equipped with skills and knowledge, and they can build more meaningful networks through internship opportunities.”
“This is an exciting opportunity for us,” said Mr. Kwa Kim Chiong, CEO, JustLogin. “We are very glad to offer our HR Software-as-a-Service to ITE students who wish to pursue HR as a career. We hope to equip these students with the relevant skills to help companies to process payroll, manage leave, time attendance and other HR processes through the use of our software.”
“We will also facilitate internship opportunities for the students to be attached to our customers after they have been trained to use JustLogin software. This is a good opportunity for our customers who are looking for someone to help them run HR processes on our system. On the other hand, this will benefit the students who will be able to gain real-life working experiences through the attachments. I am hopeful that some of the companies will choose to hire the students upon graduation.”
“We hope that this collaboration will help to create a future-ready workforce and more demand for the students in the job market,” Kwa said. “Ultimately, this would also benefit SMEs who are increasingly looking for digitally-savvy HR professionals to manage their HR processes and software.”
