Challenges

Countering the initial resistance from employees who were already comfortable with old processes and were afraid of change proved as a challenge for Fei Siong.

Moreover, when it came to implementing new digital systems, the employees needed closer hand-holding and guidance. As such, a Learning & Development (L&D) team was set-up to provide specialised training workshops for the employees working at the various outlets.

Interventions

To enable its employees to be more receptive and open to learning, it was essential to plan the curriculum in a way that is easily understandable and intuitive for the employees. This was done through the following:

1

Identification of underlying barriers to learning through informal interviews with older employees.

2

Identification of the various cashless transaction modes.

3

Co-identification and co-design of the learning experience.

4

Curation of at least 3 workshop content to equip staff with the skills to perform cashless transactions.
