HomeTeamNS Khatib Clubhouse with its sustainable design


become more critical than ever. Continuous learning and development must be part of the culture. We need to recognise that a formal, robust professional training and development programme is necessary to build and maintain a competitive workforce. Besides having a systemised training programme, it is also important to provide an environment that supports and motivates continuous learning.


It’s advisable to formalise training programmes—plan and administrate relevant courses, manage enrolment, engage in-house trainers, invite guest lecturers, etc. We could design courses to impart technical and job-specific training to project team members, such as training on new software and new building regulation compliance. In tumultuous times like during the pandemic, we could also organise special enrichment programmes; such as meditation and self-identity to help our employees be more resilient and adaptable to changes.


Along with the training programmes, a skills and competency framework will help employees identify and develop relevant professional skills. Besides serving as a benchmark for the competencies required of each role, it motivates employees to upskill and guide their career progression.

Equally important is to cultivate an atmosphere of


openness and


encouragement, where an employee who feels demotivated or stuck or has anxieties about being irrelevant, can be honest with their supervisor and be given opportunities and resources to explore a different role or learn a new skill.


What do you hope to see in our built environment in the next five years? While there are lots of commitments and promises being made towards reducing our carbon footprint and impact on the environment, we have yet to see best sustainability practices being implemented and followed across the construction value chain.


I hope to see a greater sense of urgency and more pro-active participation by all the built environment stakeholders to fight climate change. To truly transform the built environment to support a sustainable future, we need industry- wide collaboration. It is equally important to raise awareness and educate the public on the critical need for energy-efficient, sustainable buildings and the need to adapt our behaviours when working and living in these sustainable buildings. This is crucial to Singapore’s long-term development and sustainability.
