Event description

Description

Despite advancements in technology and hiring processes, there are still people in Singapore who find it difficult to find fulfilling jobs, while most companies also struggle to find suitable talent to stay competitive and grow their business.


The Workforce Singapore Hackathon (7-9 September) invites you to propose new solutions that help our workers meet their career aspirations and secure quality jobs, whilst addressing the needs of employers.


Whether you’re a developer, entrepreneur, or designer, come and be part of the discovery and collaboration towards innovating the employment space!


We are looking for practical and scalable solutions that require minimal time and effort for candidates and employers to adopt. In other words, we’re looking for solutions that will answer one or more of the following challenges:


Challenge Statements

Employers: Getting to know the candidate
> How might we use new data, media, technologies, etc. to capture and communicate the different dimensions of a candidate?

> How might we extract the information and insights into the transferable skills of candidates in industries vulnerable to disruptions, so we can better match them to jobs they may not have considered before, particularly in new and growing industries?

Employers: Finding talent for SME growth
> How can we help traditional SMEs to better understand and articulate their needs, and create greater visibility of these opportunities?

> How might we enable traditional SMEs to compete with larger, more recognised companies and newer, sexier startups in attracting the talent they need?

Process: Enhancing the employment process
> How might we incentivise and enable SMEs to more actively manage the hiring process and share feedback with the applicants, which in turn provides candidates with support during their job search?

> How might we better match the rich information of experience, skills, and aspirations with the business needs of employers, so jobseekers can be more targeted in their applications?
