Dear Members and Friends

United Women Singapore (UWS) has launched a report in collaboration with global market research company IPSOS to shed light on domestic abuse in Singapore. The study reveals that 3 in 10 Singaporeans have either experienced domestic abuse themselves or someone close to them has. 1 in 4 domestic abuse cases in Singapore are faced by men. An estimated 72% of women abused by partners are not likely to report it.

These statistics point to a high probability of employees suffering in silence and, therefore, a potential spillover effect at the workplace affecting employee productivity, absenteeism and the overall workplace environment.

As a part of the Task Force on Family Violence, UWS has developed a GenSafe Workplaces Programme for private sector organisations. The aim is to help organisations implement a comprehensive plan to increase awareness of domestic abuse, spot the signs of employees impacted by it, equip them with the skills to respond to employees suffering in silence and ensure a safe and supportive workplace environment.

I know you will want to do your bit to help stop domestic abuse.  

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
