Sustainability Series: ESGape - Hiring & Onboarding

Next up, we present “ESGape – Hiring & Onboarding”.  This project was created by the students during their SMU-X LTB 2023 module where they searched for a sustainable way to impart ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) knowledge and enable individuals to apply what they have learned effectively.

Their Problem Statement

Gap Analysis:

  • Many companies are looking to hire ESG talents, but are having trouble evaluating the skills of candidates.
  • There are many applicants for ESG roles, but they do not have the right skillset/knowledge.
  • Even after hiring ESG talents, companies are looking for ways to provide proper training.
  • There is a need to bridge the gap between companies and job seekers who share similar values and priorities.


Creating a seamless hiring process for companies looking for ESG talent, and providing a fun yet suitable onboarding process.


The goal is to provide companies with a seamless hiring and onboarding process for identifying ESG talents amongst the pool of candidates. we aim to assist companies in recruiting employees who are in line with the company’s goals and values, and who can contribute to their sustainability goals. 

Another goal is to impart ESG knowledge and promote self-learning to help individuals by providing them with onboarding training to sharpen and develop their ESG capabilities, and to put what they have learnt into practice.
