Word Wide Technology (WWT) provides cloud platforms and essential services by building and deploying IT infrastructure that millions of people and organizations use every day.  The utilization and dependency on cloud computing has grown exponentially due to Covid-19 to keep remote employees, health workers, teachers, students, and families connected and productive.  

Communications to employees were intentional and regular in providing guidance, updates and reassurance on the rapidly changing situations. Focus was on promoting health, resiliency, teamwork and overall wellness. Besides ensuring conducive remote work conditions, they strived hard to engage employees in mind, body and spirit through creative virtual activities (team socials, happy hours), incentives to keep fit (Step Challenge), and celebratory surprises (Mother & Father’s Day gift packs). Besides caring for co-workers, staff volunteers with their families participated in the Virtual Charity Concert to raise funds for charity, remembering those less privileged.

CLIENT EXECUTIVE
“WWT is a fun and rewarding place to work. Our secret weapon is our Collaborative culture and our people. There is no magic formula for achieving a great company culture. It is a direct result of our company’s Vision, Mission, and Core values of Trust, Passion, Humility and Honesty. WWT treat all employees how anyone would like to be treated, and in turn get more out of us. We hire the right people, not the best people. When you group together individuals from diverse background with the right attitude, who are passionate, positive, and inspiring, they will only see every opportunity in every difficulty. This is why WWT is such a great place to work. It is an organization that has the right people who believe in the same things, bounded by an empowering corporate culture that encourages the employees to strive for greater things every day.”

Prioritizing safety, the AWAKE campaign emphasized safety protocols to all. On-site employees worked 33 hours instead of 40 hours due to staggered work schedules to keep them safer, with no reduction in pay or benefits. All frontline employees were given additional monthly incentive pay and an extra 5 days of paid leave. The Workforce Optimization Program provided job rotation opportunities for roles affected by reduced business activities eg recruiters, matched to projects where resource demand was high. This initiative helped to retain jobs and provided an opportunity to reskill.

Sean Gill,

WAREHOUSE SUPERVISOR
“As a member of the WWT Singapore Team, I would like to say how great it is to work for WWT where the management cares about the well-being of the employee. We are a great place to work because of the people we work with and the things that everyone does for each other. It is the company culture and core values which everyone tries their best to embody and this is especially seen from the management who embody these principles better than anyone else. The GPTW recognition is a great testament for WWT Singapore.”

WWT, in doing all these and more for their employees and community, is deserving of being among 2020 Best Workplaces of Singapore!
