Companies We Work With

Join over 200 companies that have placed and trained new hires in SCALA's CCP and received course fee grant and salary support for eligible new hires.

The salary support has greatly alleviated our manpower costs since we are a non-profit Social Enterprise startup trying to build a critical mass in the wholesale and retail sector, using e-commerce as a strategic tool. The lower cost was critical for our survival in the midst of a tough economy undergoing restructuring.

The salary support has helped to accelerate our expansion plans. The invaluable training materials are very informative, and allow my staff to think about various possible scenarios in the workplace.

As a tech-enabled logistics company, we play in a highly competitive industry and need all the support given. SCALA's Logistic Professional Conversion Programme (LPCP) has been very helpful in extending understanding on the needs of logistics operations to help our employees be more effective.

Our employees applied the concepts from the classroom training to transform and digitize our supply chain processes to great effect. As a company of over 26 years in oil and gas equipment trading, it is very timely that we get this opportunity to understand and implement industry best practices in today's digital age.

The mentors who were assigned to them had many years of experience and who selflessly share their knowledge. The projects enabled them to think from different perspectives and are beneficial to their employers.
