The Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel Singapore is also the first hotel in Asia within the Millennium & Copthorne group to receive the official endorsement from MOM and STB to participate in the JFP initiative.
From 31 January 2013 to 30 January 2015, Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel Singapore will be encouraging local and foreign (work permit holders) employees to attend cross training so that they can be deployed to other departments within the Hotel to assist with the manpower needs.
Senior Vice President (Asia), Millennium & Copthorne International, Mr Lim Boon Kwee says, “
The Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel is delighted to receive the endorsement from MOM and STB to participate in this pilot initiative. We are confident that the JFP initiative will help to equip our employees with more skills and to improve productivity and morale at the workplace. This will also help us to manage our resources more effectively. Our employees are excited about the opportunities arising from this initiative and have already approached our Human Resource Department to express their interest in attending the relevant multi-task training.”
In addition, we have also obtained a separate MOM’s approval to deploy our foreign workers across our five fully-owned hotels. This will further promote greater efficiency, synergy and productivity.”
The Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel is launching a multi-tasking programme to ensure that employees are adequately trained and prepared before they are being deployed to other sister properties and / or other departments within the Hotel.
Director of Human Resource, Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, Ms Grace Nah says, “We are in the midst of working on training sessions to help equip our employees with the right skills before their deployment to other properties and/ or other departments within the Hotel. Our employees are important to us and we will ensure that our employees are remunerated fairly for taking on these additional job functions.”
