In 2016, the HR departments from SingHealth’s hospitals and institutions collectively developed the SingHealth Competency Framework for Leadership and Healthcare Administration. The harmonised competency framework aims to provide a structured and transparent development plan to ensure systematic progression of staff across different job levels in SingHealth.​
