Achieving the Singapore 1000 & Singapore SME 1000 Award
Force 21 is honoured to receive the Singapore…25 August 2020
Since we have been sharing about our advocacy and mission for quite some time, we have been invited on numerous occasions to pitch to companies about what can be done for communities. We discuss with managers, employees, and business organizations on how they can possibly impact the community around them, through WASH programs and reinforcing good behavior and values. There was never a problem on interest – everybody has the heart to help. The main difference is on priority and sense of urgency.
Anyone would probably agree, most of us easily warm up to the intention of helping others. However, with the challenges and demands of our own work and family life, we tend to overlook or delay our social duty. Overwhelming work can make us feel that we do not have the capacity to help others. However, helping less-empowered sectors play a big role in our development, both on a community and personal level.
Employees are not just workers, they are human too. This is the reason for our deep-seated desire to connect with others and be a part of a greater whole – a community. The total absence of it may have serious impact on morale and over-all mental and emotional health. Which is why it is important for companies to provide opportunities to participate in social good. It increases empathy and orients the employees to other realities apart from their immediate work and family. Collectively, it increases the well-being the organization and allows them to unite and build teamwork through challenges that may directly affect their operations but are still serious and legitimate such as social problems that affect the quality of life.
