Focus on people and technology has enabled SATS to build
an agile and resilient workforce.
Singapore, 26 November 2021 - SATS accelerated its transformation during the pandemic to position itself for growth in the post-COVID future. The company took proactive steps to invest in human capital to embrace technology, data science and supply chain skills, as it expands into new markets. These initiatives have helped the company build an agile and resilient workforce and won SATS nine awards at the 15th Singapore HR Awards by the Singapore Human Resource Institute.
SATS was conferred a standard in the following categories:
Talent Management - SATS builds robustness in its talent pool by identifying talents from within the organisation and providing them with training and programmes to further develop their cultural understanding and open-mindedness. Developing talent from within the organisation ensures a strong commitment to SATS core values and deep knowledge of SATS' broad scope of operations.
