Our Sustainability Journey
Care for our Employees
We value and recognise the contributions of our colleagues, and strive to provide a safe and conducive working environment on the basis of an inclusive, productive, innovative and ownership-driven culture.
Sheng Siong’s flat corporate hierarchy fosters close, transparent and direct communication between employees and high-level management. We are family-friendly, approachable and have an open-door work environment.
We are constantly looking out for ways to help our employees grow and upgrade. Working closely with the Singapore Institute of Retail Studies (SIRS) has led to higher customer service standards at all our retail outlets. We are building on our current on-the-job training and plan to start a training supermarket and work with partners in developing a training curriculum for our employees.
Since 2013, as a way to show our appreciation towards our employees, our controlling shareholders Mr. Lim Hock Eng, Mr. Lim Hock Chee and Mr. Lim Hock Leng disbursed, out of their own pockets, annual education grants to children of our lower-salaried employees.
