The winning team attributes this to its people-first culture, where employees are empowered with trust, training, and technology to deliver the best service for its clients.
Howden Singapore is proud to announce that we are the only employee benefits (EB) insurance broker to be recognised as the Best Employee Insurance Provider 2021 in the HR Vendors of the Year 2021, Singapore. Since 2018, we've received this honour four years in a row.
We would like to thank everyone in the HR and EB community, including our clients, partners, colleagues, and friends, for believing in us and helping us get to where we are today.
Our employees are our greatest assets, and they are at the heart of everything we do. We focus on removing barriers and empowering them with trust, training, and technology to allow them to deliver the best possible solutions to our clients.
We practise quick turnaround and provide value by designing EB programmes that promote long-term sustainable business growth by understanding our clients’ business objectives, their people strategy, as well as HR’s role.
We leverage technology to help business professionals be more efficient, which also allows us to reach out to new potential clients. Our commitment to expertise, technology, and customer service remains steadfast. Since 2015, we've grown 400%, establishing ourselves as one of Singapore's leading insurance brokers.
Going forward, we will continue to make waves in the EB market by embracing digitalisation and technology as part of our value-added solutions to clients to maximise productivity and efficiency. Our key focus for the coming year will be on:
- Putting people first.
- Global specialisations, driven by local experts.
- Data and technology-driven services.
- Sustainable organic and accelerated growth.
We strive to partner with top-tier insurers/providers to offer more expertise in areas such as employee wellbeing and mental health, flexible and voluntary benefits schemes, and enhancements to travel policies that include COVID-19 coverage, and more, giving our clients more options and choices.
Four HR trends we foresee over the next three years
HR’s role has changed radically because of the pandemic. Thus, here are four key trends that we believe will impact global HR:
- Hybrid working arrangements: Increased productivity, a more equitable work-life balance, and stronger collaboration and trust can all be benefited from a hybrid work model.
- Wellness and mental health: HR will have to be aware of the full variety of employee mental health experiences to redefine mental health by focusing on solutions that enable employees to achieve personal and professional success.
- Data-driven people analytics: Big data not only improves the efficiency of hiring and recruiting, but it also allows HR to recognise gaps and opportunities, and raise workforce productivity.
- Up/reskilling: Another major facet of evaluating performance will be the reskilling of employees for arising job requirements. HR will undoubtedly need to think of new strategies to manage performance levels.
