Thanks to the generosity of our exclusive event sponsor Newcastle Australia Institute of Higher Education Pte Ltd, we organized our first breakfast event since the pandemic at the world-famous Raffles Hotel on 18 May 2022.
In her keynote address Prof. Kristen Pammer, Head of the School of Psychological Sciences, University of Newcastle Australia, defined the difference between clinical psychology and workplace psychology. The latter aims to improve the understanding of people in businesses to help them achieve personal and commercial success. Psychology in the workplace helps to create and sustain a positive workplace culture which , in turn, reduces staff turnover, increases employee engagement, customer satisfaction and business success. The importance of transferable core life skills – the ability to communicate effectively, to work together in teams, to lead with empathy and respect, for example, is underscored by data. 57% of business leaders in the US report they are employing more people with core life skills than technical skills.
Following her presentation, Kristen was joined by Mr. David Chung, Singapore Country Director, Potential Project in a panel conversation with the audience moderated by Mr. Victor Mills, SICC Chief Executive. The conversation ranged across numerous important topics such as leadership, work-life integration, what to do about toxic managers and authenticity at work. A key takeaway is: An organization that focuses on the interests of its people achieves higher productivity.
