Our lives are deeply intertwined with the communities where we operate in.
We seed positive growth to rise and prosper together.
We persevere to do good as we do well because we believe in building an inclusive, resilient and vibrant society in which people can thrive and stay safe. Our community investments and volunteerism efforts are guided by three focus areas: charitable gifts, education and engineering.
Improving Lives Through Charitable Gifts
We promote a purpose-driven giving culture by creating opportunities for employees to serve actively in volunteering and community outreach programmes to improve lives. Our efforts to uplift Singapore communities and empower lives were recognised with our fourth consecutive Charity Platinum Award at the Community Chest Awards. Over the last five years, we contributed about $13m in community contributions.
Each year, we raise funds for the President’s Challenge to support dozens of benefitting organisations in Singapore.
We build modest and affordable homes for families, in support of organisations such as Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio in the U.S.
Our employee volunteers support various organisations such as Food for Neighbors in Northern Virginia to collect, sort and bring nutritious food to students.
By participating in meal delivery programmes, our employee volunteers assist not-for-profit charity organisations to meet the daily needs of home-bound elderly and frail members in communities.
During major holidays, we spread festive cheer by donating a vast array of toys for children as well as packing and delivering gifts and essentials to communities.
Enriching Lives Through Education
Education opens horizons and is key to progress. We believe that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education can help to create a brighter, better world. Apart from investing in local capabilities through talent development programmes to build up a thriving pipeline for sustainable, long-term growth, we also work with partners and collaborators to create diverse learning pathways across industries and demographics. Each year, we offer hundreds of internships across our key facilities to nurture STEM talent.
Each year, we give out the Pensacola Mayor’s Scholarship to develop local aircraft talent in support of the Northwest Florida aviation workforce. We partner with Pensacola State College on an apprenticeship programme and provide “direct to industry” job opportunities for the academy’s apprentices.
We continue to grow and diversify our talent pool of qualified aircraft maintenance technicians to support the aviation industry in the U.S., collaborating with partners such as UPS.
We partner vocational schools such as Assumption Pathway School in Singapore to provide industry experiential programmes and extend awards that recognise students' achievements and progress.
To grow STEM talent, we offer internship positions across various business and involve our interns in major projects to gain real-world experience and skills.
Touching Lives Through Engineering
We use our expertise, tech and engineering skills to provide solutions and share knowledge with communities or their intermediaries to enhance quality of life.
We share our engineering and technological expertise by taking on external appointments, providing industry consultancy in various engineering and tech areas such as cyber resilience, participating in broad-based industry initiatives, and sharing our internal professional expertise.
We share knowledge and experience in technology and provide thought leadership within the Women in Tech Chapter at the Singapore Computer Society to build confidence and nurture interests in women of all ages and backgrounds.
Our satcom modems enabled the Verizon Frontline Disaster Response Team in the U.S. to re-establish cellular connectivity and resume mission-critical voice and data services in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian in Florida.
We supported a ground-up employee initiative with funding and resources to design and produce quality face shields for nurses in local hospitals in Baltimore, U.S., and made the 3D printing files available online for free.
We extend vehicle inspection services to voluntary welfare organisations to help ensure the roadworthiness of their fleets and reduce operating costs.
Keeping fit and healthy while doing good was the idea behind our employee engagement and fundraising flagship event, ST Engineering MOVEment. Launched in 2021, it has become a permanent fixture in our calendars across our offices globally.
The month-long motivates employees to walk, run or cycle, and the Group pledges a donation for every kilometre or mile an employee covers. Funds raised are donated to select charities and organisations supported by the Group.
