Our People & Culture


As we celebrate our 140th anniversary this year with over 23,000 employees worldwide, we are empowering our people and investing in equipping them with relevant skills and knowledge to help them thrive in this digital age and our highly disruptive and competitive industry.

Our digitisation initiatives across the entire group focuses on the use of automation, artificial intelligence, analytics and an agile way of working to deliver higher productivity and customer experience.

We believe in the inherent strength of a vibrant, diverse and inclusive workforce where the perspectives, backgrounds and life experiences of our people help us to forge strong connections with all our customers, engage confidently within an increasingly globalised marketplace, inspirationally lead and creatively innovate, thereby making better decisions for our business and the world in which we live. Our diversity and inclusion initiatives help to bring about better gender diversity, multi-cultural awareness, multi-generational workplaces as well as opportunities for those with differing abilities.

Creating the right space and environment for our employees to thrive at work is also key for us. We launched our newly renovated Singtel@8George community and collaboration space in 2018 where our people can ideate and collaborate in agile squads.

We also embarked on a large scale renovation of our Singtel Recreation Club (SRC) housed at Comcentre to offer a larger, even more comfortable recreation space to enable our people to exercise, play and connect with one another and their families after working hours. The newly renovated SRC boasts an extensive array of recreation facilities for all to enjoy: gym, rock-climbing wall, karaoke, games rooms and a pub aptly named Pub@SRC.



What Our Associates Say


On Innovation

"As part of the pioneering team that created our new mobile payment app, Dash, I went through the journey of stepping into a brand new world of remittance and eventually facilitating cross-border payments because our leaders had faith in us, and encouraged to push through this new frontier to bring us to where Dash is today as we celebrate our 5th anniversary this year." - Lena Tan, Director, Digital Payments & Strategy, mCommerce

On our digital transformation across the region

"I have witnessed how our associates in Indonesia, India, Thailand and the Philippines have transformed themselves and are truly well along on their paths to being digital telcos. We are all striving to serve our customers better and putting more resources towards development of our sales and marketing interactions via digital channels. As a Group, I can see that we are committed in our journey towards digitalization, from network virtualisation to being the first mover in 5G technologies." - Benjamin Keck, Business Strategy Planning Manager, International Group

Opportunities for development


"I had the opportunity to rotate to different business units for exposure, which included an international rotation to Airtel in India to gain experience working with our regional associates. I appreciated the development opportunities such as career coaching, 360 feedback, training and self-assessment tools that helped to accelerate my learning and career development." - Ramanan S/o Kalechelvam, Innovation Manager, Group IT

"Singtel has established many digital innovations with cross functional teams working on projects within our Digital Factories. I've had the opportunity to manage these different work streams and learn about new technologies such as Cyber security, Cloud, AI and machine learning." - Zhang Ruihong, Digital Transformation Manager, Group Enterprise
