Dear Members and Friends

Your Chamber has always supported the work of the National Integration Council (NIC) because integration of newly arrived immigrants, professionals and workers is essential to our economy and to social harmony. It is essential to enable them to contribute faster and to encourage them to assimilate. In so doing, they become more effective for themselves and for the businesses they work for. They need to want to integrate just as much as it is essential that people already here welcome them and enable their integration. Like any worthwhile relationship, integration is always a two way street.

NIC has asked us to bring its workshop on workplace integration efforts to your attention. The aim of the workshop is for businesses to learn how to co-create a safe space that is supportive, encouraging and inclusive for both local and global talent. Micro-indignities can very easily cause disharmony and disengagement among employees. NIC’s workshop will help people managers and HR business partners develop practices for diversity and inclusion (D&I) so your company can better address micro-indignities in your workplace. The 3-hour workshop is funded under NIC’s Community Integration Fund so there is no cost to you for participation.

We encourage you to join to discuss D&I issues and develop fit for purpose follow-ups to be practised in your respective workplaces after the coaching session. Click here for more information on the workshop.

You can sign up for the workshop here.

For any queries, please email [email protected].

Another NIC initiative is the Community Orientation Programme (COP) designed for newly arrived Employment Pass Holders. The COP is an introductory half-day orientation programme aimed at providing global talent with the opportunity to interact and connect with Singaporeans to help them better appreciate Singapore’s culture and norms to foster a sense of belonging and inclusion in the community. Participants will also get to participate in a Community Immersion Journey to enhance their understanding of Singapore society. The minimum size for each session is 25 participants. Interested companies may contact [email protected]

Enable integration. It’s for everyone’s benefit and for every business’s benefit.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
