IDA S’PORE APOLOGISES TO SOON-TO-QUIT EMPLOYEE OVER INSENSITIVE JOB ADVERT

Yesterday, we put out a job recruitment ad for a position at IDA that referred to an employee by name, instead of the job title he was vacating as his contract is ending. It was a mistake made by one of our HR team members, who was new to the recruitment publishing tool and accidentally published the employee’s name instead of the job title.

IDA has since apologised unreservedly to the employee concerned for this error, and we regret any unhappiness caused. The HR staff officer who committed the error has also been counselled and we are reviewing our procedures to ensure that this does not happen again.
