We are 580 strong, diverse across 33 nationalities, working together as one team.

We strive to live by our Temasek Charter, and are guided by our MERITT values in all that we do.

Learning and Growing Together

We are committed to fostering an enterprising spirit in our people, continuously learning and growing together. Seeking new ideas and insights, we constantly challenge ourselves to reinvent and renew for the future.

Technological advances and innovation bring risks and opportunities. To encourage our employees to embrace change and an innovation mindset, we developed new learning experiences around the theme of innovation during the year. We designated a day at our Singapore office to showcase the latest technologies in working, collaborating and living, to inspire our staff. We also invited behavioural science practitioners to share on topics such as “nudge” and adaptive leadership, to help our people stay up-to-date with the latest leadership best practices.

Making A Difference

We believe we can make a difference, individually and collectively. “Make-A-Difference” (MAD) was introduced to inculcate a culture of taking personal ownership and responsibility. We are especially proud that our people have embraced this concept personally and professionally. Various non-financial individual and team MAD targets are set for each year, covering health, self, institution and community. These are facilitated by various company-supported initiatives such as learning first responder skills like Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), so that we can help our people to be responsible, able and knowledgeable global citizens.

Keeping in line with our theme of innovation, this year’s “CEO Challenge” encouraged staff to step out of their comfort zone and learn a non-native language, coding or to play a musical instrument. As at 31 March 2016, 96% of our staff accepted the challenge, close to 60% completed it, while the others are still on their learning journey.

We are committed to fostering an enterprising spirit in our people.

Family and Community

We encourage our families to be part of the larger Temasek family through events such as Kids@Work and family-friendly facilities that include nursing rooms for new mothers, while maternity and paternity leave support young parents.

Active Volunteers at Temasek

We have designated our incorporation date, 25 June, as our annual Community Day, where staff in our Singapore and international offices adopt and work with different beneficiaries. OurT-Touch volunteers are active throughout the year, organising a range of activities for different beneficiaries and community organisations.

Our staff are active volunteers who help make a difference in many outreach programmes with different non-profit groups and self-help organisations around the world.

Honouring Our Pioneers

In Singapore, we organised a walk down memory lane for 500 senior citizens from the Central Community Development Council and Touch Senior Activities Centres. We recreated the Great World Amusement Park, a well-loved Singapore amusement park in the 1960s, for their enjoyment.
