HOW IT ALL STARTED?

biipmi's birth revolves around the idea of empowerment of individuals to take charge of their careers and personal development through a holistic employability approach. Right from its inception in 2011, biipmi’s mission has been to evangelise and promote holistic employability. biipmi passionately believes that holistic employability requires a strong employability eco-system consisting of individuals, employers, educators and training providers

  • Individuals who are upgrading their skills appropriately and in tune with changing needs of the job marketplace. (Check out the details here.)
  • Educators and training providers that create, modify and offer formal and informal training and learning programmes to address the skills gap between the talent and job marketplaces (Check out the details here.), and
  • Employers that are enlightened in embracing progressive HR policies and see the benefit to themselves in having a workforce that is appropriately skilled and trained. (Check out the details here.)

For the past few years, biipmi has been intensively researching and building solutions around this holistic employability concept. It anticipated this need and through a blend of fore-thought, innovation, expertise and technology, it has designed and implemented scalable employability solutions that are locally developed targeted at enhancing an individual’s employability from a multi-perspective approach.

OUR BELIEFS

"Employability: the art of being employable"

Employability is not the same as employment. The two e-words might sound the same, but that’s as far as it goes. Being ‘employable’ requires a complete and holistic approach in three spaces:

  • Personal Attributes – involves a person's employability skills and attributes.
  • Personal Circumstances – includes a range of socioeconomic contextual factors related to individual's social and household circumstance.
  • Demand Factors – include those factors influencing a person's employability, such as labour demand conditions and enabling support of employment related public services.

Just because you have a job doesn’t mean that you’re employable. That’s not all, employability is relative and not absolute. Put it another way: being employable isn’t simply about you. It’s about who you’re up against.

Enhancement of your employability will not go away if you do get a job; it is relevant throughout your working life because you might change your job and/or career several times. The days of working for a single employer doing the same job the same way are over. We all need to enhance on our Personal Attributes, improve our Personal Circumstances and monitor some Demand Factors.

OUR FOCUS

We believe that everyone has the same or equal opportunity to enhance their employability and we hope to inspire people to care about their lifelong employability.

To do this, we focused on providing the best user experience. We take great care and pride to ensure that the features and tools we build aligns with our idea of Employabiliy.
