Ken Chan: Embracing New Technology with Upskilling
31 Dec 2018Posted in ⟨Stories⟩
48 year-old Ken first joined PSA in 1992 as a Container Equipment Specialist (Yard Crane). He is now supervising automated yard crane operations as a Senior Operations Supervisor based at PSA’s Automated Crane Operations Centre in the new Pasir Panjang Terminals.
Throughout his time in PSA, he has witnessed technological transformation from manual paper operations to computerisation, and now automation and intelligent systems. Ken has embraced these changes by continuously upskilling himself.
Taking up Gearing Up For a Digital Workplace, a course jointly conducted by NTUC LearningHub and PSA, was a step to further prepare himself to be future-ready for the industry. The course has enabled Ken to understand how emerging technologies impact his work, and to adopt a positive mindset for change, innovation and resilience.
“There is a Chinese saying “活到老，学到老 ” We should keep an open mind in learning new technology, and do not be afraid of accepting new challenges.”
