CREATING PURPOSEFUL EMPLOYMENT
ALIGNING ORGANISATION GOALS WITH EMPLOYEE BELIEFS


The 8th Workforce Champion Series (WCS) was concluded successfully at the ubiquitous homegrown brand - Fairprice. A brand familiar with all Singaporeans. Reaching out to close to 100 attendees, the event was an insightful session that looked deeply into balancing business value propositions and individual employee values.

Fairprice was founded in 1973 by the labour movement with one purpose - to moderate the cost of living in Singapore. Today it has grown to support our little red dot with 140 supermarkets, hypermarkets, finest, FP shops and 160 convenience cheers stores.

With its vast history and deep roots in Singapore’s soil, Fairprice proudly shared that 613 employees were awarded for long service awards of 10 years and above, with its longest service staff staying with Fairprice for 44 years.

Testimonials from Attendees


“It was an eye opener learning experience attending the Learning Journey hosted by NTUC Fairprice. The take away is how we can appreciate the contribution and utilising the strength of each and everyone in the organisation. We learned age is not a limitation. It’s how we can develop the career plan and how we can re-design the work scope to individual in respective groups of capability. Was also very impressed on the huge numbers of long service staffs working at Fairprice and how they manage the aging workforce, and injecting new blood. “

- Mr Simon Goh, Project Director of DHdeco Pte Ltd


“We are thankful for the series that WAF has organized and invited us to attend, where local companies present a localized context of human resource management and how they deal with issues related to compensation, performance management, organization development, safety, wellness, benefits, employee motivation, training and others. Giving an in-depth and unparralelled understanding of how, HRM plays a strategic role in managing people and the workplace culture and environment, is critical for success in Singapore.”
