SINGAPORE - A deal inked on Monday will provide more small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with expert advice on how to adopt good human resource (HR) practices in a challenging labour market.

Under the agreement between the Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (Asme) and the Singapore Human Resources Institute (SHRI), SHRI will give HR advisory and training assistance to SMEs that are members of Asme.

In return, Asme will extend its events and the use of its SME Centres - government-supported facilities that help SMEs - to SHRI members.

Asme president Kurt Wee said at Monday's signing ceremony that the agreement was a timely collaboration that will achieve "greater synergies".
