What is the impact of the current economic situation on your pro-family HR policies?

Mr Lim Cheng Teck, chief executive, Standard Chartered Bank, Singapore

Standard Chartered has in place strong pro-family policies and practices. In difficult times, it is more important than ever to focus on our employees.

However, these initiatives are not economic-environment dependent but are integral to motivating and bringing out the best from our talent.

We want to create a supportive and family-friendly workplace where employees are better able to maintain work-life harmony.

Examples of our pro-family practices include flexible/home working arrangements, a shorter work week, sabbatical leave, paid family-care leave and Happy Friday, whereby employees are encouraged to leave the office earlier one Friday a month to spend time with family.
