ITE-SBR MOU signing

SBR is proud to announce our partnership with Institute of Technical Education. On the 3rd of November, the owner of SBR, Kelvin Ng and CEO of ITE signed the memorandum of understanding. This fosters a greater tie between SBR and ITE, and this allows both parties to embark on joint projects. These projects are related to sustainablility, involving ITE students and staff.

One successful project we would like to mention is ITE College East’s wormery. Set up and fully sponsored by SBR, we had to provide them with the necessary materials and training. Today, their wormery produces a sizeable amount of natural earthworm castings, which can be used for fertilizer. A job well done!

Wormery Booth @NUS

We are glad to set up our wormery booth at National University of Singapore on the 11th of November. Through this booth, we intend to share how we go about maintaining our wormery. Also, we try to inform people of this closed loop system, which enables us to sustain our vermicomposting project till today! But most importantly, our wormery is one of our socially responsible initiatives that serves as an educational purpose.

4th Enabling Employers Award

On 21 July 2017, SBR was recognized at the 4th Enabling Employer Awards, organised by Sg Enable.  “The Enabling Employers Awards (EEA) is a nationally recognized award that honors and recognizes the efforts of employers in hiring and retaining employees with disabilities.” – sgenable.sg

SBR was among the 7 companies receiving the The Progressive Employer Award, which is the second-tier in the Employer Awards category (after Leaders, which was received by 3 companies).  In total, 72 companies were recognised at the ceremony.

This is a very significant recognition for Siloso Beach Resort, which for many years has made providing employment opportunities for those with disabilities a key focus of its CSR program.  Certainly the resort has seen many benefits from the program, both in terms of fostering greater independence and confidence for its employees with disabilities, as well as valuable contributions to the company operations and culture.
