Local Posted 2 weeks ago

Our colleague Ricky, who works in the mobile developer team, has always loved video games such as World of Warcraft, Dota and League of Legends. He got to “level up” when he worked with students from Yu Neng Primary School to create The Mighty Savers app that helps teach basic financial literacy concepts to kids.

Interacting with the young students exposed Ricky to new ways of thinking.

“It was the first time I worked closely with kids, talking to them, understanding them, teaching them, and also learning from them. Being from another generation means they have a very different way of thinking. They approached problems from angles that we would not have thought of, and how they think as they code is also quite fascinating.”

That’s not all. Creating games for others has always been Ricky’s childhood dream. The Mighty Savers app was his first creation, and since then, he’s also come up with a prototype for a digital “Piggybank”, where parents can reward children for completing various tasks by topping up their piggybanks via an app.

Now that Chinese New Year is over, what advice should you give your children about their red packet money? Our advice? Consider teaching them both, the benefits of saving while allowing them the satisfaction of treating themselves.

One way to do this is to have them take stock of their red packet collections themselves. Then, tell them to make a list of things they want to purchase while also setting aside a certain percentage for savings - this will help instil discipline. (more…)

Aye Wee, our Head of Learning and Development at OCBC Campus, proudly wears the badge of 'Miss Versatility'.

She started her professional life frying donuts before joining the airline industry and then finally joining us in 2008. Over the last 8 years, she’s jumped into and succeeded in many different departments. When asked, Aye Wee shared that she’s never afraid to jump into uncharted waters because she believes in being able to learn on her feet: “I’m someone who enjoys learning and I want to inspire other people to do the same. I could never do the same thing every day. I think I would be horrified because I love new challenges.”

Her curious and flexible nature comes from her upbringing. “My mum often shared a Teochew phrase that means ‘with great gumption, get going’. I have that ingrained in me, as I saw that spirit in my mum. My grandma was a tailor and when she set up her own shop, my mum did door to door sales when she was just 9 years old. So I think I have the same kind of spirit.”

While it’s tempting to focus solely on the price, it’s also important to think about value. For example, a PC that costs 10% more may be worth getting if it helps you get your work done 30% faster. Similarly, a well-made jacket that costs a bit more may be worth getting if it keeps you warmer and lasts longer than a cheaper one. (more…)
