BAC Education’s CTO Discusses Work & Trade in The New Normal
Emerging technologies, the dawn of the digital era, the fourth industrial revolution and the next normal of work... BAC Education has worked to constantly stay one step ahead of this ever-evolving digital economy.
And our very own Chief Technology Officer, Thillai Raj Ramanathan, has played a fundamental role in these efforts.
Recently, Thillai Raj was part of a panel, the Future of Trade & Work – Now What, featuring Ruben Gnanalingam, CEO of Westports, Megat Nizan Nicholas Denney, Chairman of the Malaysia-Thailand Business Council and Rina Neoh, Director of Corporate Strategy at Eclimo. The session was moderated by Selangor ADUN for Kampung Tunku, YB Lim Yi Wei.
Various topics surrounding work and trade post-pandemic were discussed, such as the gig economy and informal labour, project-based economies, work-from-home arrangements and the role of governments in helping businesses adapt to this new normal.
Thillai Raj shared his perspectives on how companies and business must evolve to ensure they can keep up with these rapid changes post-pandemic.
The CTO emphasised the importance of planning, altering internal definitions of work, evaluating processes, building a talent bench and developing critical thinking within the workforce.
“The more you think of work as project-based rather than role-based, the more agile your team and organisation will become.”
