The activity was hosted at C asean by International Computer Driving License (ICDL) Thailand, the leader in International Standard of Digital Literacy.
This project was targeted to encourage the young workforce/talents to have digital capabilities at the international level.
Voradis Vinyaratn, Executive Director and Acting Managing Director of TCCtech, said, “TCC Technology, as a private entity, is ready and aims to become a key contributor to develop human capital towards digital literacy. Our objective is to create most benefits for all parties, including the personnel competency, organisation and society.
“We realise that any business opportunities, whether in the past, present and future, are shaped by two significant factors – technology and workforce. However, typically, human resources are sometimes unable to catch up with current advanced and complicated technologies. This challenge has led to insufficiency of market-qualified workforce, especially in the digital era.
“TCC Technology realises the importance of people development. We understand that although our country is in the beginning stage of producing Digital Talents to fulfil Digital Workforce Models, the challenge has to be addressed urgently. We need cooperation from all related parties.”
Digital technology is impacting on workforce requirements, particularly in industries. Many organisations are seeking skilled resources with digital knowledge and ability while emphasising employee development to have creativity, know-how and expertise in digital technology at international level.
“I believe that not only organisations and institutions but students are also aware of the technology advancement effect,” Voradis said. “This stage has reflected youth attitude towards technology challenge as an opportunity rather than an obstacle. ICDL Digital Challenge 2018 can be considered as one of all great stages that urge young generation to aware and be prepared in order to enter real labour market in the digital era. We are honoured to be part of the contributors to this digital-driven project.”
