    With employees as a key element of our continued success, Canon Singapore ensures open channels of communication and constant engagement are maintained. This includes monthly CEO address to keep employees abreast of company’s performance and strategic directions, among others. In addition, feedback from employees are collected via pulse surveys and stay-in interviews, as a gauge of the engagement level. Activities related to sports, self-enrichment and social bonding are regularly organised by the Staff Recreation Club, to cater to different interests. Employees also actively participate in the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) related activities as volunteers to do their part for the community.

    Promoting our Corporate Culture initiatives and activities

    Over the years, Canon Singapore has established a strong foundation of corporate culture which resonates with many of our employees. There are many unique corporate culture initiatives and activities to engage and delight our employees, some of which include Red Hot Passion, Big Smile with Canon and Do with Full Swing. Through these initiatives, Canon Singapore seeks to motivate employees to stay passionate in all that they do and take pride in their work. Our senior management has always been actively involved in our corporate culture activities and this in turn, encourages active participation across the company.

    Despite changes and uncertainty due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Canon Singapore has remained resilient and adaptable, taking on different approaches in collaborating with each other, through a mix of virtual and onsite meetings. The company has since adopted a new hybrid working arrangement to balance the business needs with that of the employees. With constant activities to engage our employees, our corporate culture stayed strong amidst work-from-home practices.
