Jobs Transformation Map and Jobs Skills Integrator Launched for the Retail Industry to Drive Workforce Transformation
1 June 2023 – The Jobs Transformation Map (JTM) for Retail was launched today by Minister for Manpower and Second Minister for Trade and Industry Dr Tan See Leng, as a guiding resource to help retail companies plan for the future and ensure that their workforce is equipped with the necessary skillsets to meet evolving business needs. The JTM was jointly developed by Enterprise Singapore (ESG) and Workforce Singapore (WSG) with the Ministry of Manpower, and supported by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), following the roll-out of the Retail Industry Transformation Map (ITM) 2025 in October last year.
2 To further support retailers on job transformation, Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF), in partnership with National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), has been appointed as the programme partner for the Jobs Skills Integrator for Retail (JSIT-R). The JSIT-R is a dedicated intermediary to provide retailers with end-to-end solutions for workforce transformation, employee training as well as job matching services for the industry. The JSIT-R will use the JTM as a reference when working with retailers.
3 To signal their commitment to the JSIT-R and the implementation of the JTM, retail trade associations and chambers (TACs) – Singapore Retailers Association, Singapore Furniture Industries Council and Singapore Fashion Council – will be inking a Memorandum of Understanding today with SNEF and NTUC. Collectively, the TACs are committed to reach out and work with over 1,100 member companies and other retailers to drive job transformation for their workforce of almost 94,000 workers.
