The inaugural Human Resources Excellence Awards, celebrating outstanding HR practices and leaders, was held at the St. Regis Hotel in Singapore earlier today.
We were honored to win a Gold Award for Excellence in Employee Work-Life Balance!
This award recognizes our innovative approach and best practices in delivering programs which enable our employees to achieve a healthy work-life balance. In particular, the judging panel had praise for our various work-life initiatives which enhance our competitiveness to attract and retain talent, as well as building a healthier and more resilient workforce.
At Cartus, we aim to become a global Employer of Choice and remain committed to making our company a place where people enjoy working. In Singapore, we have flexible working arrangements for the increasing numbers of young mothers and job rotation opportunities for our Generation Y employees. In 2009, we also piloted the Working from Home (WFH) program and today, 25% of our employees in Singapore are on this program.
The Human Resources Excellence Awards are organized by the Human Resources magazine, a leading HR publication in Singapore with regional readership among the HR community. The awards program saw an impressive array of organizations across various industry sectors competing in 18 highly relevant categories. Winners were chosen by a distinguished panel of judges which consisted of senior HR practitioners from leading companies such as Shell, Unilever, Google, Siemens, and ANZ.
