Manu Khetan, CEO of Rolling Arrays, said, “One of the common challenges that HR Transformation has faced in the past is how technical teams and HR teams speak different languages. For last several years, we have built a team which is equally proficient in HR process, functions, trends and technology as well to successfully deliver end-to-end HR transformation. However, there is a shortage of talent proficient in this area in the market.”
“With our experience in building a team to meet shortage of skilled resources by taking the development and talent management insights, we are glad to collaborate with IDA to fill this skill gap in the Singapore market by training young professionals to be equally comfortable with business and technology.”

Khoong Hock Yun, Assistant Chief Executive of IDA, said, “To stay up-to-date in this competitive marketplace, it’s imperative for tech professionals to upskill, reskill or work towards deepening their ICT skills. That’s why we hope to see more companies taking advantage of the Company-Led Training Programme which offers the industry great opportunities for growth and advancement.”
In an increasingly globalised world, businesses are not restricted to their home country for project execution and relationship building with their customers.
Rolling Arrays presence in numerous countries in South East Asia is helping trainees to get international exposure, enhance skills and deepen their knowledge on the multi dimensions and complexities associated with implementation of a multi-geographical HR Transformation project.
It also gives them the opportunity to step back and gain new perspectives on different cultures, challenges and work ethics of different countries to get in touch with the real world of businesses.
