What is it?
The Human Resources Job Redesign Initiative (HR-JR) [formerly known as HR Tech Transformation Programme (HRTTP)] aims to support enterprises through HR process re-engineering, redesigning of impacted HR job(s) and managing HR job transitions.
With strengthened processes and job redesign, HR professionals could spend more time on strategic HR to meet the organisation’s business objectives. Adopting HR technology could also enable a positive employee experience through the online delivery
of HR services at their fingertips.

How does it work?
Through the HR-JR, enterprises can address various priorities e.g.:
Increase job value and better job satisfaction through job enrichment or enlargement;
Improve productivity through the review of work processes to streamline administrative or transactional tasks, and pivot to strategic HR functions;
Strengthen employee engagement and experience, as well as enhance employer branding; or
Implement HR technology solution.
There are two phases in the HR-JR between project approval and submission of project report for funding claims.
Enterprises will be supported through the following milestones and services:
Phase 1 - Diagnose HR gaps and identify priority areas for improvement; interested enterprises can opt to use HCDT-Navigator or HCDT-Professional2 to assess opportunities and gaps.
Phase 2 – Through the Consultancy for Job Redesign, enterprises receive recommendations on priority areas for improvement based on business objectives (e.g. adopt HR technology solutions3, enrich or enlarge HR job roles) and
guidance to implement the changes.
