We put plenty of emphasis on driving employee satisfaction by actively engaging our staff members and collecting feedback from them to explore areas for improvement. Our business groups adopt various engagement tools, such as using staff surveys to ascertain feedback on reasons for retention, opinions on employee diversity, overall satisfaction and potential issues of concern. We also ensure robust internal communication channels are available across our business groups for effective engagement, as well as timely dissemination of information and provision of psychosocial support even at times of the pandemic.
