In his National Day Rally speech, Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsieng Loong warned of “serious consequences” if the number of foreign workers in the country is not controlled.

Yet, the challenge of balancing foreign and local staff is something troubling many human resources departments nationwide. The issue has generated much debate in HR circles, and we’ll be tackling the topic head-on at Recruitment Interactive 2013.

Join us at this unique event on November 28th at the Four Seasons Hotel in Singapore to listen and join in on the Foreign vs. Local Employees panel discussion.

Panellists include Ow Seng Fong, divisional director of National Human Resources Division at Ministry of Manpower; Patrick Ghielmetti, APAC VP of HR at Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts and Joy Roman, APAC head of talent solutions at 3M.

They will focus on the following topics:

  • How has the new foreign manpower policy changed your recruitment strategy?
  • Can organisations survive without foreign employees?
  • Discovering the right balance of local and foreign employees for different industries
