The Singapore economy has been hit by the effects of the global pandemic that struck the world in 2020.The country has slipped into recession and there is no clear indication of when we will emerge from this challenging environment. Hundreds of thousands of Singaporeans are facing an uncertain employment future, with many having lost jobs or experienced severe loss of income this year alone.There is a need for a whole-of-nation approach to providing the support and help needed by Singaporeans to overcome the current economic challenges, while also addressing the need for mental and physical health and well-being, which are often overlooked during such difficult times.Orange Room and Novastella have come together to launch a new initiative – Run for Your Future – to provide an innovative solution that will augment broader national programmes that aim to not only help Singaporeans and Singapore companies survive the current recession, but to thrive in the “next normal” that will be presented in a post-COVID world.Running has been selected as the core activity given its accessibility and popularity among the majority of Singaporeans.
To provide a digital platform that will build a community that engages Singaporeans seeking jobs or to transition to new sectors.
To enable job seekers to professionalise their efforts to find new employment and acquire the requisite skills that will enable them to succeed in work and life.
To create a culture of self-reliance and resilience among Singaporeans in a challenging global environment
To reinforce positive habits that contribute to physical well-being and mental health
A virtual running challenge will be organized to encourage individuals to join groups that are organized according to sectors which reflect the key growth industries as identified by the government.
Participants sign up for free for the sectors that they are interested in, and complete certain challenges based on the consistent achievement of set goals, which they can select for themselves, to be carried out over a fixed time period.
From there, participants will be invited to access a series of self-video and virtual connections and received tips on how to manage their mental as well as physical well-being. Speakers from various industries will provide their expertise advice on current trends and relevant skill sets needed. Many well-being tips like how to reduce daily work stress and overcoming stress during this adversity period and changes in the workplace. Most importantly, topics like effective time management will be touched on and this helps to create habits and practices to help you maximize your energy and improve your focus.
