More about Aik Saw
Aik Saw’s feat recorded the highest number of clients who have gone on to find work on the Private Provider Placement (PPP) programme. The PPP is part of an ongoing initiative (Adapt and Grow) by the government to help Singaporean workers adapt to changing job demands and grow their careers. PMETs who have been unemployed for six months or more are eligible for the PPP scheme.
From an entry-level computer operator in IBM, Aik Saw gradually diversified into sales and marketing, HR and training positions within the organisation. His business sales acumen and leadership qualities enabled him to rise through the ranks to senior management level. He surpassed the sales target consistently for seven years and was twice ranked among IBM’s top salesmen in the Americas and Asia. As a senior
manager, he trained and coached managers and staff under his fold, several of whom later moved up the corporate ladder.
His leadership role further expanded to that of Functional Manager in IBM’s ASEAN Region HQ. Here, he initiated improvements in work systems by process
re-engineering and pushed for the consolidation of facilities by setting up a regional spare parts warehouse which, in turn, achieved savings of over $3 million.
With his extensive management know-how, Aik Saw conducted training courses for committee members in his neighbourhood RC while serving as a volunteer and later, as vice-chairman.
He now focuses on career coaching and training in adult education. Besides the PPP coaching programme, he has also facilitated workshops in motivational, team building and age-friendly initiatives.
