In 2020, we found ourselves surrounded by not one but two invisible enemies.
The first being Covid-19, a killer virus and a new foe that has changed how we will live and work forever. The second, discrimination. A much older enemy but who’s impact can be felt with just as great a level of economic and physical damage.
Covid’s impact on how we live and work along with the absolute necessity to ensure that we promote inclusion and diversity; that we hire without bias or prejudice; that we remove the unfair advantages many of us, our founders included, benefit from; that we facilitate a means for the bottom 1% to move up and that we look after those mentally and physically who work amongst us can all be tackled in someway or another by technology.
WorkTech can be a force for good and support the change needed in the world. It is in this vein, that we were proud to launch the Workplace Accelerator
What is The Workplace Accelerator?
The Workplace Accelerator is the leading accelerator programme that is designed to support the businesses that shape how the world’s fastest growing markets work.
We provide a structured world class programme with that focuses on helping business get everything they need to succeed.
It is a programme supported by the global HR leadership community with over 150+ expert HR leaders from renowned corporates in the region including Seek, Grab, DBS, UOB, Google, Amazon, Seek, Philips, IBM and volunteering to spend time with the programme participants giving them direct market access and insight.
Throughout the programme, the startups will also have access to additional funding, partner benefits and the most dedicated HR Tech ecosystem in the world.
In our first cohort, we are identified and nurtured the best early stage WorkTech businesses to support them in becoming the regional champions. You can meet the cohort here
Shaping WorkTech to be a force for good:
We are focused on 5 categories of WorkTech and solving the key questions that each can answer:
1. Talent Management – how can we measure, manage and develop team mates and ensure all are treated fairly?
2. Talent Acquisition – How can we find the right candidates and ensure promoting diversity and inclusion whilst prohibiting bias?
3. Workforce Management – How can we create an environment and operating structures that allow staff to thrive in the post COVID work environment ?
4. HR & Admin – How can we free up time and add value back to our colleagues through new processes,and practices?
5. Collaboration & Productivity –how can we help our teams to get things done and focus on higher value added activities?
Technology holds a pivotal part to helping answer these questions and through greater awareness and acceptance of their potential, we can hopefully accelerate the much-needed change in the world and workplace.
Why The Workplace Accelerator?
The incredible network of 150+ dedicated advisors and mentors with industry subject matter expertise and direct client access is certainly one set of reasons.
Another is that the programme has been built for WorkTech entrepreneurs by WorkTech Entrepreneurs who want to see the vertical flourish for all the reasons above.
Between the founding partners of The Workplace Accelerator, we have raised capital from the leading global investors, VCs and corporate investors, built numerous award winning HR Tech products, won accolades, created new categories in online staffing, and guided the innovation and investments of Fortune 500 companies in the recruitment and HR space as well as so much more.
There could not be a more specialised programme for HR Tech Startups to receive the best support to further growth their businesses and make their stamps on the future of work.
If you would like to accelerate a year's worth of learning, development and market insight into 12 weeks then this is the best way to do it.
How can I get involved?
We would love to get as many people and businesses involved in this as possible particularly from the HR and recruitment space.
