Our Research Team
The Skills, Performance and Productivity (SPP) unit is part of IAL's research division. SPP specialises in skills research in relation to workplace performance and productivity. The approach is interdisciplinary, employing both quantitative and qualitative research techniques.
It focuses on the impact of skills at work, and the implications of this for policy and practice in CET. In particular, research will be directed to examining the role of skills in enterprises and the relationships between skills and a wide range of desirable workplace outcomes. These outcomes include productivity, innovation, learning, skills retention and the use of qualifications.
Skills utilisation is an important element within this research cluster, as skills utilisation provides a crucial link between skills and many workplace performance outcomes. Another focus of research is to examine the impact of CET's skills provision on the Singaporean workforce.
