Against the backdrop of the global Covid-19 pandemic, companies around the world are looking for innovative approaches for employees and employer alike. In Singapore, ams Sensors Singapore Pte Ltd has teamed up with Scoot, the low-cost arm of Singapore Airlines Group, to reallocate grounded cabin crew and find a new way – among others undertaken by the airline – to best optimize members of the Scoot workforce and allow the airline to retain its frontline talent through this downturn.
In fact, over 100 Scoot cabin crew have taken on temporary employment with ams for a period of at least three months from May 2020. These assignments enable crew, whose flying hours have been greatly reduced due to Covid-19’s impact on the aviation industry, to supplement their income and gain new knowledge and soft skills. Prior to taking up their new role, each recruit underwent an interview to assess them on communication skills, attention to detail, and goal-driven attributes to meet production standards, followed by a period of on-the-job training.
ams is pleased to have achieved a win-win result with the Scoot team to offer alternative employment to their staff. The new recruits are a good match for our operations in Singapore. Despite coming from another industry, their robust service background makes them adaptable to new situations. We have also found them to be very meticulous, solution-oriented, and goal-driven. These are important traits for success in this line of work.
Innovative Human Relations
This kind of innovative thinking and approach has worked out well for both employee and employers. With a success rate of over 95% for new recruits, this is truly a benchmark in collaboration in unprecedented times.
