Customer relationship management platform HubSpot and its brand partners across Asia Pacific have pledged to give their employees an entire workday to upskill and on-the-job learning during the week of May 9.
Brand partners participating in Singapore include BCG RISE, EngageRocket, Meltwater, and Aircall.
Called “The Great Upskill”, the movement aims to address the current issues with upskilling. According to HubSpot, almost two-thirds of Singaporean workers believe lack of time from their employer is the main barrier to upskilling. Eighty-one percent of Singaporeans also wish their employer placed higher importance on job-related learning and upskilling.
