DBS is doing more damage to themselves by releasing press releases voicing their unhappiness over Ms Josie Lau's new position in AWARE.
Yes, Josie may have disregarded staff conduct but as one of the biggest employer in Singapore, DBS should not have publicly criticized her. In fact, they should have communicated with her through proper internal staff communication system not in the papers!
As commented by a report in 'TODAY', it is very rare for a private sector employer to express disagreement about its employee’s voluntary commitments. I have no right and is not going to touch on how wrong or right that staff policy is, however, I thought its very wrong of the company to publicly express their displeasure over a staff. This should have been kept a private issue.
I must say that my previous as well as current employer had never doubted my ability to complete my job and had never interfere or question me with regards to my appointment in WP. Credit goes to them for that...
Lastly, why is it that we are only thinking of the negative that this new leadership in AWARE is up to no good? Guilty before proven or rather they have to prove that they are innocent otherwise they are guilty! Sounds a bit like ISD isn't?
Its simply too early to judge.
