On Thursday, SMRT Corp announced during its company dinner that it was rewarding all its employees with S$500 worth of shopping vouchers each. This was in recognition of their contribution in public transport towards nationhood building.
SMRT stated “This token of appreciation from the company is to thank everyone for their dedication in operating, maintaining and upgrading our rail lines, buses, taxis, facilities, and shops; and for serving our commuters, customers and each other with professionalism and pride” “Through their hard work, we run a world class transport system that is integral to Singapore’s growth as a nation.”
This move would recognise the unsung heroes at SMRT who play an important part in keeping our nation moving everyday. SMRT’s management will be donating their share totaling up to $50,000 to charity. This will provide the poor and unprivileged with travel vouchers for use on the MRT.
