“In DHL, we believe in continuous improvement and joining the IHRP Corporate Partner Program helps facilitate learning within the HR Team. Whilst traditional learning activities focus on course based sessions, the IHRP team puts together a wide array of programs ranging from best practice sharing, networking sessions and webinars relating to key up-to-date topics. The resources are valuable to build competencies, widen perspective and be in touch with market practices. This supports our value of being the Employer of Choice, building a competent HR Team that partners our employees in their journey with the Big Yellow Machine. I would encourage more companies to join us in the journey and work together with IHRP to upskill the HR progression in Singapore.”
