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 Supply Chain PCP has been really helpful for us to quickly upskill new hires from a different sector, and equip them with fundamental skills and knowledge for them to excel in the logistics industry. Our new hires have really appreciated the training and guidance given during the programme. The salary support has also been very helpful in incentivising commitment to this programme and helping us to find alternative means to cover the impact on manpower, and in the long run, as employers and employees, are all better off for it.
