HRM Awards 2018: Kaplan Professional Award for Best Training, Learning & Development

Kaplan Professional Award for Best Training, Learning & Development, one of the flagship categories at the HRM Awards, went to OCBC Bank.

The Kaplan Professional Award for Best Training, Learning and Development went to OCBC Bank. Yap Aye Wee, Senior Vice President of Learning and Development, said she was “really, really proud” to have accepted the award on behalf of the bank and her colleagues.

“I think that the win probably came from the passion from the team,” she suggested. “We truly care about what we do. We come every day with a huge purpose and I think that drives us, and I hope that that is what swayed the judges.”

Yap also noted that learning and development team is consistently hands-on across the portfolio of the bank’s learning products. “We believe that the learning and development space is in the state of transformation so we need all the fresh ideas and perspective that we can get.”

Wayne Marriott, Executive Director of Kaplan Professional Singapore, said OCBC was a worthy winner of the standout prize for corporate training – particularly given the current business environment.

“Right across the globe, and certainly here in Singapore, there are a lot of disruptive innovations and technologies impacting, and Kaplan is helping organisations navigate this particular time,” he said.
