Eat With Your Family Day supports greater family bonding amidst COVID-19

SINGAPORE – Media
OutReach
 – 4 September 2020 – Strong
family bonding is becoming even more pertinent amidst the challenges posed by
the COVID-19 season. To celebrate the importance of spending quality family
time over a meal and building stronger family ties, Eat With Your Family Day
(EWYFD)
is encouraging more companies to allow their employees to leave work early
at least four times a year so that they can enjoy a meal together with their
families.

 

Underpinned by multiple
research studies that show how connecting as a family over a meal can improve
the physical and mental health of family members, EWYFD was launched in 2013 by
the Centre for Fathering to encourage organisations to arrange for employees to
leave work at 5pm so that they can eat with their families. The initiative also
aims to remind parents to put aside time to eat with their children regularly.

 

Held on the last Friday
of each school term, the dates for EWYFD 2020 are 13 March, 17 July, 4
September and 20 November. It is brought
to you by MUMS for Life, DADs for Life and Centre for Fathering, in support of Made
for Families.

 

“Research has
shown that children who eat with their parents thrive emotionally, socially and
academically. It is therefore important for parents to put aside time daily,
away from work and devices, to connect with their children during meals,” said Mr
Bryan Tan, CEO of DADs for Life and Centre for Fathering.

 

He added,
“Employers play a critical role in supporting families, as better work-life
integration leads to stronger productivity, higher staff commitment and greater
job satisfaction. As such, it is important for companies to embrace EWYFD to
nurture a family-friendly work culture. Even with employees working at home due
to COVID-19, employers can encourage them to consciously stop work early to
have a meal with their families.”

                                                                

Building A
Family-Friendly Work Culture

 

Companies such as
City Developments Ltd (CDL), Etiqa
Insurance Pte Ltd and Eu Yan Sang International Ltd have adopted EWYFD with the
intent of creating a family-friendly work culture and promoting greater
work-life harmony.

 

“As a family-friendly company, CDL
recognises that employees can be more productive and effective at work when
they are able to harmonise family and work responsibilities. Over the years, we
implemented a series of other initiatives and schemes to foster a
family-friendly work culture. EWYFD has become an integral part of our
family-friendly initiatives. Since 2012, we have also increased the frequency
of this initiative to four times a year to encourage employees to leave work
earlier to have dinner with their family,” said Mr Steven Tan, Chief Human Resource Officer, City Developments
Ltd.

 

“Here at Etiqa, we believe that
family support is instrumental in reducing work stress and facilitating
productivity. With this in mind, our company practices EF2F — Early Friday 2nd
Friday — to allow staff to return home early the second Friday of each month
for dinner with their family. This arrangement boosts staff moral while
creating a culture of good work-life balance in the company,” said Mr Collin
Sta Maria, Head of Human Capital, Etiqa Insurance Pte Ltd.

 

“At Eu Yan Sang, we not
only believe our people are a key contributor to our success, but also that
their families inspire them to be the best they can be. EWYFD allows us to
recognise both our staff and their families. We started this in 2018, as one of
many family-friendly programs that we offer, including staggered working hours
and a lactation room, among others. These supportive practices provide our
staff greater work-life balance and strengthen Eu Yan Sang’s ability to attract
and retain talent, as well as improve employee engagement and morale,” said Mr
Aaron Boey, Group Chief Executive Officer, Eu Yan Sang International Ltd.

 

Reflecting employees’
appreciation of this initiative, Ms Loh Ferng Lyng, Manager, CDL, said, “With
my husband and I working full-time, we seldom get to have family dinners as our
kids usually have their meals by 6pm. I really appreciate that CDL grants us an
early release of 1.5 hours every quarter on the last Friday of the school term.
This allows our family to get together and have a good meal and brings us
closer as a unit. It has become such a joy that my children look forward to
EWYFD and will constantly remind us when the date draws near!”

Special
EWYFD programmes to enhance family bonding

 

To support families who may
be facing challenging times during the COVID-19 season, the organisers of EWYFD
are working with over 40 organisations to plan a special programme for their employees.
The 150 families nominated by their organisations will be receiving a family meal
delivered to their homes on Friday, 4 September 2020. These families can also
participate in a photo contest and movie trivia to win prizes and goodie bags.  

 

In addition, EWYFD 2020
is also offering:

  • Special deals from merchants islandwide which provide
    families with more food, retail and fun options for family outings;
  • Complimentary fathering and parenting workshops conducted
    by the Centre for Fathering;
  • A special movie screening of “Happy Feet” on 4
    September 2020 at 6.20pm on Mediacorp Channel 5.

Aon Announces Singapore Coalition to Help Move the Economy Forward

Aon Announces Singapore Coalition to Help Move the Economy Forward

  • Coalition to focus on creating a benchmark for
    how local businesses work, travel and convene in the wake of the COVID-19
    pandemic
  • This is the third of several regional
    coalitions that Aon will be rolling out globally

SINGAPORE

 – 4
September 2020 – Aon
plc

(NYSE: AON), a leading global professional services firm providing a broad
range of risk, retirement and health solutions, today announced the formation
of a coalition of leading Singapore companies to strengthen communities and
move toward societal and economic recovery in the wake of the COVID-19
pandemic.

The coalition, which recently held its virtual kickoff
meeting, consists of key employers from a broad set of sectors focused on re-introducing
fundamental aspects of society and the economy: working, traveling and
convening. These top Singapore organisations will collaborate to outline a set
of guidelines for businesses and communities to help restart the economy safely.

Aon has launched similar coalitions in Chicago and New York
and plans to conduct similar efforts in other cities, including London and
Tokyo.

“We are deeply committed to the communities we operate in
and are excited to bring this important work to Singapore,” said Greg Case, Aon
CEO. “We have helped our clients maintain their operations and mitigate risk
during the pandemic and believe that we have a responsibility to play a larger
role in helping organisations return to the workplace and rebuild economies
with confidence and certainty.”

Convened and led by Aon, the coalition will focus on Work,
Travel and Convene efforts across leading businesses.

Na Boon Chong, Managing Director & Partner, Human Capital
Solutions, Southeast Asia, Aon said, “There is much to gain from a united approach,
and we welcome the partnership and sharing of expertise among Singapore
companies in navigating the pandemic. We are confident that with our
collaborative efforts, we can help local business leaders make better decisions
about protecting communities in the short term and rebuilding how we work,
travel and convene over the long term.”

Alexis Saussinan, Global Head of Strategic Workforce
Planning and Analytics, Merck said, “Bringing together companies across sectors
and top leaders across functions in Singapore is a great opportunity to share
experiences and co-create new approaches to operate and compete. I look forward
to sharing how Merck is shaping our future ways of working and learn from best
practices in other companies.”

The coalition will share insights and learnings from its ongoing
efforts across industries, sectors and geographies as well as discuss issues
related to the current pandemic. This collective knowledge will then be used to
create a first-of-its-kind benchmark to develop recommendations and guidelines
to build a path forward. Aon expects to publish an initial assessment report in
November 2020.

SWIFT: New report reveals how cyber attackers ‘cash out’ following large-scale heists

SWIFT: New report reveals how cyber attackers ‘cash out’ following large-scale heists

  • By illuminating final stage in
    money laundering process, BAE Systems report commissioned by SWIFT supports
    efforts by banks to prevent, detect and respond to cyber-attacks

KUALA
LUMPUR, MALAYSIA / MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Media OutReach –
3 September 2020 – SWIFT and BAE Systems Applied Intelligence
today published ‘Follow the Money’, a new report that describes the complex web
of money mules, front companies and cryptocurrencies that criminals use to
siphon funds from the financial system after a cyber-attack.

The report highlights the ingenuity of money
laundering tactics to obtain liquid financial assets and avoid any subsequent
tracing of the funds. For instance, cyber criminals often recruit unsuspecting
job seekers to serve as money mules that extract funds by placing legitimate
sounding job advertisements, complete with references to the organisation’s diversity
and inclusion commitments. They use insiders at financial institutions to evade
or undermine the scrutiny of compliance teams carrying out know-your-customer
(KYC) and due diligence
checks on new account openings. And they convert stolen funds into assets such
as property and jewellery which are likely to hold their value and less likely
to attract the attention of law enforcement.

SWIFT
commissioned BAE Systems to investigate this element of the money laundering
process as part of its Customer Security Programme (CSP). The CSP continually
helps the financial community to strengthen its cyber
defences through a range of measures including mandatory controls, intelligence
sharing and thought leadership. Although there has been much research into the methods that cyber criminals
use to conduct attacks, there has been less investigation into what happens to
funds once they have been stolen. The aim of this report is to illuminate the
techniques used by cyber criminals to ‘cash out’ so that SWIFT’s global community
of over 11,000 financial institutions, market infrastructures and corporates can
better protect themselves.

Brett Lancaster, Head of the Customer Security Programme at SWIFT
said: “The threat posed by cyber-attacks to the financial sector has never been
greater. Attackers are well-resourced, constantly evolving their modus operandi
and using untraceable money laundering techniques. The report highlights how
the growth in cyber-attacks is increasing the need for the convergence of
anti-money laundering, fraud and cybersecurity processes in financial
institutions. It calls for them to increase information sharing, tighten due
diligence requirements and smartly invest in maintaining systems to strengthen
their defences.”

Simon Viney, Cyber Security Financial Services
Sector Lead at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence said: “The activity from cyber
criminals and gangs across the world is estimated to result in over $1.5
trillion dollars in annual losses. This report focuses on money laundering related activities necessary for
cyber attackers to conduct and ‘cash out’ a successful attack and avoid the money
subsequently being traced. As technology and criminals’
techniques evolve at a rapid pace, so will the need for institutions, both
private sector and law enforcement, to collaborate and maintain awareness of
evolving money laundering techniques, in order to reduce the opportunities for
threat groups to benefit from committing high-value cyber heists.”

Among the other findings in the report:

  • Front companies — cyber criminals tend
    to focus on textile, garment, fishery and seafood businesses to obfuscate funds.
    They find it easier to operate in parts of East Asia where less stringent
    regulations make it easier to conduct their activities.
  • Cryptocurrencies — while the number of
    identified cases of money laundering through cryptocurrencies is low so far,
    there have been a couple of major incidents involving millions of dollars.
    Digital transactions are appealing because they are conducted in a peer-to-peer
    manner that circumvents the compliance and KYC checks conducted by banks, and
    often require only an e-mail address
  • Experience – The method chosen by cyber
    criminals to cash out and spend the stolen funds is indicative of their levels
    of professionalism and experience. Some inexperienced criminals have immediately
    made extravagant purchases drawing the attention of law enforcement agencies
    and leading to arrests.
