Developing our human capital in Singapore
Through our Mitsui Chemicals Process Technology (MCPT) Study Award which we conduct every year with participating polytechnics, we have built up a pipeline of young talents for our Plant operations. The MCPT Study Award started in 2012 and it has been very successful in attracting young polytechnic graduates to join our workforce.
As part of the skills enhancement effort for our pool of Process Technicians, we have been working with Singapore Polytechnic since 2015 on the SkillsFuture Earn and Learn Programme (ELP) for Advanced Diploma in Chemical Engineering to build our talent pipeline.
For our support in developing our people, we also received the SkillsFuture Employer Awards that was presented on 30 July 2019.
As one of the key player in the Chemical hub in Singapore, the challenge is always the upkeep of talent pipeline for the business and operations. To attract, retain and develop sufficient pool of talents with relevant and up-to-date skills & competencies to meet the business needs is continuously a business for human resource.
