CHAN YIT FOON

Senior vice president, HR
MARINA BAY SANDS

In 2016, Marina Bay Sands landed a spot for the second time in HRD’s Employer of Choice Awards. MBS also came out on top in several award subcategories, such as access to technology, work-life balance, and D&I. Chan Yit attributes these successes to a new one-stop solution for HR-related employee enquiries, and the provision of more devices for easy access to and processing of company information and procedures; a ‘Heart of House’ set-up that allows staff to experience integration of work and home lives; and the organisation of events throughout the year to celebrate cultural differences. In her primary role as leader of the people strategy, Chan hopes to maintain the organisation’s position as a top-of-mind company and employer of choice.
