Entering the awards for the first time, we are honoured to have got to earn a place among the best of the best. It’s like we’re at the “Oscars” for HR! We couldn’t be more proud to have made it so far!
What was the award ceremony like?
Besides the honour of being shoulder-to-shoulder with Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat himself, the team were mostly on the edge of our seats awaiting the results.
Here’s a peek into how our senior leadership team felt throughout the event!
“No doubt… Disneyland may be the happiest place for kids, but TC is the best place to work at! 🔥🔥🔥” – Tan Jian Ming, Head of Culture
Culture has always been something that we have scrupulously focused on and built in TC. In fact, when we onboard newer TC staff, we would always ensure that we impart the heart, culture and values that are an intrinsic part of our company.
We would share our TC Core Values with them, and share stories that speak volumes about our company’s culture and heritage.
We would have Good News Meetings every Wednesday morning, to encourage our staff and share countless stories of employees being empowered. Even the youngest and newest staff have their ideas contributed.
At TC, there’s also neverending buzz and life in our office ⚡️! From 11.11 to 12.12, we would have fun together while working hard. That’s the kind of culture you’d see in TC.
“My key takeaway? This award is proof that a for-people company works.” – Regine Tan, Head of Finance
Even when it didn’t make business or financial sense, our company directors would still make decisions with people in mind.
In fact, to encourage the staff who had worked so hard over the Pandemic season, our company directors granted the staff a ‘stress and suffering bonus’ - just to bless them! They didn’t take a single cent for themselves, but chose to encourage the staff first - that is simply unheard of.
Whether it’s in the form of an interest-free loan for a newly-wed staff, or #TCcares where we helped our freelance employees (and ex-employees!) tide through the Circuit Breaker period – this award shows that a People-First company is possible!
