‘Teens at Work’ gives kids a feel of working at a bank

About 20 children of Standard Chartered Bank’s employees attended a ‘Teens at Work’ programme organised by the bank for the employees to bring their older kids to work to learn more about the bank and career pathways, as part of its inclusive work culture in the workplace recently.

The programme began with a virtual meeting with Chief Executive Officer Pengiran Aki Ismasufian bin Pengiran Haji Ibrahim, followed by an investment talk.

The children learnt from various employees of their career pathways and what they did at the bank.

The session ended with a mini resume writing workshop where they received tips on how to draw up a resume and consider the opportunities, they may have to build up their resumes.

Host of the programme and Head of Corporate Affairs, Brand and Marketing Marilyn Graeme said, “We are delighted to organise an insightful programme that could help them consider their potentials and opportunities to expand their horizons. Similarly for our colleagues, they look forward to showing their children where they work, what they do at the bank and who they work with, thereby building a more inclusive culture around the workplace.”

Standard Chartered Bank is one of the few organisations that is committed in promoting equality in the workplace and creating an inclusive culture – one where everyone can realise their full potential regardless of their background and make a positive contribution to our organisation.

The bank also actively pursues a robust work-life balance culture as it rolled out well-being initiatives that encourages and supports a conducive workplace as part of its family-friendly culture – from adopting flexible work practices to introducing inclusive employee initiatives to help encourage work-life balance and quality time with loved ones including Family Day, ‘Bring your family to work’ Day and so on.
