ST Engg's belief in the importance of its people is the main
driver behind a policy of consistent investment in not just recruiting
the right people, but also in creating an environment and culture
where the drive to excel and innovate is appreciated and rewarded.
In a challenging industry where constant changes in technology and
fast turnaround are the rules of the game, the "can-do"
spirit and ability of ST Engg's people to work quickly and
effectively as a team to deliver high quality products and services,
on-time every time, are what sets them apart.
ST Engg Human Resource contributes to this through a strategic recruitment
policy, with stringent standards and a comprehensive portfolio of
training and development programmes, to ensure that the right competencies
are in place for effective and efficient job performance, in pursuit
of the Group's overall business objectives.
THE SPIRIT OF ST ENGG
ST Engg has come to be known in the industry for the spirit of its
people and their drive to excel. The secret behind the Group's
success is its ability to attract the right people with the passion
and creativity to take ST Engg to the next level.
New recruits of promising young engineers and professionals from
all disciplines are given the opportunity to work in various operational
areas to provide them with the exposure and hands-on experience
they need. Job rotation serves to give them a comprehensive overview
of the Group's diverse operations and the opportunity to work
with different teams. A win-win situation is created for both ST
Engg and its staff as the Group benefits from the invaluable contribution
of talented staff, and at the same time, each and every individual
is given the opportunity to
grow and realise his full potential.
ST Engg's future leaders will be chosen from these young professionals
who have the business acumen, operational exposure and most importantly,
the ability to adapt quickly to changing market forces to lead the
Group into future phases of growth.
In a business where projects are often developmental in nature,
the challenges and pressures can be overwhelming. However, ST Engg
differentiates itself through its teams of dedicated managers and
staff who are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and do whatever
it takes to get the work done.
The Group empowers its people to take calculated risks and make
informed decisions for the business. As a result, ST Engg has developed
a culture of innovation which encourages new processes, products,
systems and services.
ENGINEERING THE HUMAN CAPITAL
Recruiting the right people, building a culture of innovation and
having the right mix of training and development programmes are
core components in ST Engg human resource policies. ST Engg Human
Resource supports the Group's business objectives by constantly
designing strategic training and development programmes in order
to provide staff with the skills and competencies needed to deliver
increasingly complex and sophisticated products and services to
A major priority of ST Engg is the development of well-rounded leaders
with both the soft and hard skills to fulfil the Group's immediate
and long-term needs. As such, a broad approach is taken to training
and development where staff are given training beyond the immediate
skills required for their jobs. For example, all managers are required
to undergo legal and financial training to equip themselves with
a basic understanding of contractual and accounting principles and
practices that will help them make informed business decisions.
For its top executives, ST Engg invests in education programmes
in top overseas institutions, from Stanford and Wharton in the US
to INSEAD and the London Business School in Europe. These programmes
provide them with the latest management concepts and practices as
well as the opportunities to build international networks with top
industry and corporate leaders.
The Group's commitment to training and development has also
led it to invest heavily in courses that help its staff better understand
and anticipate customer requirements. On a regular basis, ST Engg
sends selected staff to attend courses and post-graduate programmes
which are developed by MINDEF for its staff and partners. One such
course is the 18-month Master of Defence Technology & Systems
programme which focuses on providing staff with an in-depth understanding
of the complexities of military force and the ability to create
maximum leverage by integrating operations and technology.
The ST Engg-MINDEF Job Exchange programme further enables ST Engg's
high-potential employees to spend a year on secondment to one of
the Group's largest customers to build a better understanding
of their present and future needs.
UNITED IN SPIRIT
Through the up-and-down cycles of global demand and increasing competition,
ST Engg will build its present and future success on the spirit
and drive of its people to consistently achieve the seemingly impossible,
and do so as a team working tirelessly together.
