Training Our Future Leaders
High potential staff were selected across all companies within
the Group to participate in the JURONG International Leadership
Development Programme, held in Batam Island in September.
Participants were put through intense tests and challenges such
as the developing of a hypothetical corporate strategy within an
hour. Other activities included The Leadership Simulator; a
four-hour trekking activity; Sea Sports Station, which required
them to design, build and manage a sea-going contraption, etc.,
all part of a training itinerary comprising a good mix of both
hands-on and think-tank activities.
A Role for SMM in Singapore Youth Olympics Games 2010
International’s facilities management arm, SMM Pte Ltd, was
awarded the contract for the installation of air-conditioning
systems in the Youth Olympics Village at NTU last year.
And in the spirit of CSR, SMM supported the YOG event by having
an FM team at the Games Village 24/7 to respond promptly to all
technical issues. Even when it came to non-technical matters,
the team was at hand to lend support.
Thinking of The Less Fortunate
Singapore's National Day was celebrated by some 300 Singaporeans
in Abu Dhabi on 6 Aug, an event organised by the National Day
Committee and the Singapore embassy to Abu Dhabi. Capping the
joyous occasion was a joint CSR effort by JURONG Middle East,
SMM and a group of sponsors, who did not forget the less
privileged in the community in which they lived and worked.
A cheque for AED45,000 was presented to Kim Childs of Future
Centre For Special Needs by the Singapore Ambassador to Abu
Dhabi, Mr Tee Tua Ba at the event.
