Sengkang Town Council and RELX were pleased to collaborate on an appreciation session for our estate workers on 28 April 2023. The teams gave out goodie bags to our conservancy workers, and participated in a litter-picking exercise around the estate.
65 staff from RELX took part in the event, which involved giving out gift vouchers, food and drink packs to 88 conservancy staff from Sengkang Town Council’s cleaning and maintenance teams across all four divisions. The items were purchased following contributions from and were prepared by staff from LexisNexis Risk Solutions, LexisNexis Legal & Professional, Elsevier, Cirium and Independent Chemical & Energy Market Intelligence (ICIS®).
Participants also took part in a litter-picking exercise, which resulted in 60 kilogrammes of litter being collected across the estate. A donation, matching the amount of litter picked, will be made to a community partner working with children.
Ms He Ting Ru, SKTC Chair, commented: “We are delighted to be able to collaborate with RELX to conduct this appreciation session for our estate cleaners, who are an integral part of our community. Many residents share with me that they are extremely grateful that they share a bond with their ground workers that is similar to one between neighbours".
“This festive Hari Raya season is the first to take place after three years of restrictions, and our cleaners have been working extremely hard to keep our estates clean in light of the increased activity in this post-pandemic new normal.”
Ms Christina Chua, RELX CAREs Champion, commented, “We are pleased to be able to do our part in the spirit of Eid to give back to these often overlooked workers who keep our community spaces clean. We hope that our small gesture will convey the appreciation that we have for them in the difficult work that they do. It was also enlightening to be able to experience first-hand the difficult physical work in challenging conditions that is involved in the upkeep of our estates.”
