ClassIn gladly took part in the Movement for Normalizing Diversity and Inclusion’s Milestones Celebration at the HCS-SG Enable Masterclass: The Greater Good For All on November 3. As an HR Powerbank Early Adopter, the edtech company pledged to adopt inclusive recruiting procedures as its clientele in Singapore expands. Human Capital Singapore (HCS) started the HR Powerbank programme in October 2021 with the goal of offering training and career opportunities in the human resource sector to people with disabilities (PwDs). The first group of graduates were formally recognised as Certified HR Administrators (CHRA) at the HCS-SG Enable Masterclass after completing the 576-hour HR Professional Skills Qualification (PSQ), a programme that emphasises Learning by Doing.
Yuekun Li, Head of Global Business Development at ClassIn, observed, “It was a tremendously empowering experience. “It is a great honour to see these people rise above the conditions they were born into and receive such high level acknowledgment from the leaders of this nation. Both their spirits and their stories are priceless.” Li made an announcement about ClassIn’s commitment to disability inclusion in hiring while representing the company at the occasion. “There are several positions that they could take on… We promise to provide employment to individuals whose lives can be enhanced by a straightforward opportunity. Our work in education aims to better people’s lives via lifelong learning ” EEO’s ClassIn, which was founded in 2014, is currently among the biggest edtech businesses in the world, with more than five million active users each month. In addition to $265 million in a Series C round of financing led by Hillhouse Capital’s venture capital division GL Ventures in November of the same year, the company received its over $50 million Series B round from Ince Capital in July 2020
