SINGAPORE — Moving from a “human resources” to a “human capital” mindset will be key in Singapore’s new phase of growth, Second Minister  for Manpower Josephine Teo said on Wednesday (Feb 7), as she outlined measures to help companies achieve this.

These include boosting programmes that help employers to transform their business strategies and that support workers in picking up fresh skills.
