Our students have done us proud, emerging champions at the HR Hackathon held on 13 & 14 July by the Singapore Human Resources Institute (SHRI)! Our team of Year 3 Diploma in Business Management students from the Human Resource Management specialisation beat 15 teams from the other institutes of higher learing (IHL) and polytechnics. This inaugural Singaporean HR Hackathon brings leaders in HR innovation and development and aspiring young HR leaders of tomorrow together.
The team applied the design thinking process taught in SBM’s curriculum to create HR solutions for this year’s theme “Create, Engage, Innovate HR”, and impressed the judges with their unique delivery - a skit, coupled with a live demonstration of their mobile application which aimed at helping older workers embrace technology through a social, learning and gamification platform.

In June last year, our DBM(HRM) students had the opportunity to attend a workshop organised by professional networking giant, LinkedIn. During the session, they learnt more about the Linkedin Economic Graph as well as the Social Recruitment Ecosystem. Students also gained practical experience through hands-on practice in building their personal and corporate branding. They also got to apply what they had learnt in class about digital recruitment and talent metrics analysis through a case study.
