1st April 2016
The Workforce Advancement Federation (WAF) has successfully held its 5th Workforce Champion Series (WCS) on the 28th March 2016, in partnership with the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) and Goodrich Global. The WCS learning journey was graced by Mr S Iswaran, Minister for Trade and Industry (Industry).
Hosted by Goodrich Global, the WCS focused on the sharing of progressive people development practices and productivity improvements. With the focus of helping small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to go international, Goodrich was held up as a role model for similar SMEs to learn from. Speaking to the media at the event, S. Iswaran lauded Goodrich Global for having successfully navigated the rocky path of internationalisation for over 30 years. Goodrich Global expanded overseas, enhanced its business productivity initiatives and carried out a re-branding exercise by leveraging on the various government assistance schemes, SPRING grants, IE Singapore’s Internationalisation Schemes and WDA’s manpower programmes.
At the event, Mr. Chan Chong Beng, Chairman of Goodrich Global cited 3 reasons for his venture overseas – Singapore’s small market size, and hence attempts to garner more business to retain his suppliers, as well as growing and retaining talent. Today, Goodrich has successfully established over 30 offices and galleries in Singapore, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates.
To round off the event, Mr S Iswaran and attending delegates were given a site tour of the warehouse and a demonstration of the new machineries purchased in order to increase productivity and quality of work. Following that, Goodrich employees and chairman, Mr Chan Chong Beng shared their experiences in Goodrich as well as our businesspractises to stay relevant and keep our people engaged.
