  • Summary

It is the duties of directors to oversee the affairs of running the organisation, which includes ensuring legal compliance and optimal productivity, which lead to an increase in shareholder values. In this seminar, we will present key areas of compliance pertaining to employees and implications of infringement.


Seminar Highlights

Consequences of Infringing Employment Act
The changes to the Employment Act on 1 April 2019 have accorded greater protection to all employees. As the employment landscape in Singapore evolved to be more employee-centric, businesses should be aware of these changes and make the necessary adjustments to avoid infringing them. This session focus on key changes that will be detrimental to the companies if they are overlooked.

Duties of a Director

Understanding the fiduciary obligations of the director to the company are key to knowing the duties of a director and the limitations under which such a director may act. Those limitations are also augmented under the Companies Act and by the Memorandum and Articles of Association of the Company.

This session focus on some of the examples of how a director’s powers may be circumscribed by contract, statute and the Memorandum and Articles of Association.

The Future and Opportunity of HR technology

With the rising cost of manpower, companies are looking for ways to optimise one of the highest overhead, manpower. This session focus on how an advance HR platform help to:

  • train internally
  • monitor and identify leading employees
  • engage with employees so that they feel connected and empowered
  • allocate resources where it is most effective
  • budget and plan and obtain a higher return
