Over 600 AETOS officers were deployed to provide essential security and safety services during United States Vice-President Kamala Harris’ visit to Singapore. Between 21 and 24 August, auxiliary police officers and security officers carried out vehicle and personnel checks at key sites during the visit, while outriders formed part of the Traffic Police convoys that facilitated traffic and escorted the visitors.

AETOS Holdings clinched two awards at the inaugural Employee Experience Awards, obtaining Gold in the Best Women Leadership Programme category and Bronze in the Best In-House Candidate Experience category respectively.
Hosted by Human Resources Online, Asia’s leading HR platform and read by over 300,000 users each month, the Employee Experience Awards recognizes organisations that have transformed to adopt an employee-centric approach, and have set industry standards in areas such as leadership, learning, and employee engagement. The Awards saw participation by a diverse range of companies across the region, from global MNCs to local enterprises, and were judged by a panel of senior HR professionals.
The Best Women Leadership Programme award celebrates organizations that adopt a collaborative and open approach to women empowerment and leadership, supporting and nurturing female professional talent while striving to become an equal opportunity employer. AETOS recognizes the importance of an inclusive and diverse working environment and has actively worked to increase female representation at the middle and senior management levels.
The Best In-House Candidate Experience award celebrates organizations that delivers a positive and professional experience at all touchpoints for candidates – throughout the application, hiring, and onboarding processes. Our competitive edge stems largely from investment in our people – be it through training, welfare, or development – and it is necessary that the candidate experience is included in this approach, being the starting point of every employee’s journey.
Said Ms. Irene Tan, Vice President of Human Resource, “We are very proud to have received these awards. Our greatest asset has always been our people, and these wins affirm our commitment to them - from empowering and nurturing deserving talent to ensuring our candidates are well taken care of. AETOS will continue to look for new ways to uplift our employees and enhance our overall employee experience.”

In a new donation drive and fundraising initiative held to support local charity Food From The Heart (FFTH), AETOS successfully raised over $8,300 and collected twelve cartons of essential provisions for their food support distribution programmes.
Employees across the organization came together to help needy families by donating funds and staple food items such as rice, cooking oil, and canned goods. Over 50 volunteers also contributed time and effort over the space of two months to help prepare community food packs for distribution at FFTH’s logistics facility.
Food From The Heart provides consistent and sustainable food support to beneficiaries comprising the less fortunate, including families with young children and elderly who live alone.
“We are glad to be able to support Food From The Heart’s mission of providing food security to needy families and individuals in the community – especially given the additional challenges they face during this pandemic. I am heartened by the positive response from our employees and look forward to our collective participation in future initiatives like this,” said Ms Elaine Ong, Assistant Vice President of Corporate Communications and Service Quality.
