Robotics - Employment and Employability Institute


With Singapore moving towards becoming a Smart Nation through the adoption of digital and smart technologies to enhance the way we live and work, robotics and automation have become an integral part of our everyday lives. Widely viewed as a game-changer, robotics has enabled companies to cut costs, increase productivity, raise competitive advantage, and led to greater employee satisfaction and business growth.

Singapore has one of the highest industrial robot density worldwide1 and is progressively leveraging on robotics as an enabler in Singapore’s service delivery needs through strategic implementation of robotic solutions in sectors such as healthcare, F&B, hospitality and logistics. To fully harness the benefits of robotics and automation, it is crucial to re-skill and up-skill the local workforce to increase their employability skillsets in preparation of these developments as the use of robotics solutions will create higher-value jobs and opportunities for a more productive local workforce.
