BiZQ Features 3E Accounting’s Sustainable Employment Practices
3E Accounting’s sustainable employment practices were showcased on BiZQ. Published by Singapore Business Federation, the apex business chamber in Singapore, BiZQ is highly read among influential decision-makers in the industry.
Fair and Progressive Employment Practices
Among SME firms, BiZQ recognised that 3E Accounting understands the challenges of employees working during a pandemic, and has put in place work-life harmony policies and initiatives aimed at improving employees’ welfare and wellbeing.
This is because 3E Accounting believes that every employee has the aptitude to succeed, and we regard our employees as our most valuable asset. We value our employees’ welfare and we always place our employees at the centre of our efforts.
Our “Employees Come First” culture focuses on work-life harmony and we empower our employees with the autonomy and flexibility to manage their work and personal/family commitments. This not only encourages a family-friendly culture but also boosts the firm’s productivity by lowering employee stress levels and raises staff retention.
Employee Life Cycle Approach
We practise the “Employee Life Cycle Approach” by caring for all employees’ development, from the time they join us as a new joiner until their retirement. All employees are encouraged to participate in annual SkillsFuture training courses to equip themselves with the latest skillsets. Additionally, 3E Accounting is also building an age-friendly workplace by investing in technology to redesign jobs. By automating repetitive work, our senior employees can mentor younger employees and provide added value to our clients instead.
Asia Pacific Pioneer Robotics Accounting Firm
3E Accounting’s investment in technology has proven to be a strategic competitive advantage for the firm as it has allowed us to run full remote business operations and launch our new office in Hong Kong during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.
Our adoption of Industry 4.0 trends as Asia Pacific’s first robotics accounting firm is to integrate technology into our business processes to deploy robots to work collaboratively with human co-workers. With robots taking care of repetitive tasks, senior employees can upskill and deliver higher value to clients.
To further signal our commitment to senior employees, we have also extended the retirement age in 3E Accounting to 70 years old to protect senior employees from the uncertainty of negotiating re-employment contracts.
3E Accounting has invested $2 million in technology thus far. We will continue to innovate robots to optimise operations. We aim to complete artificial intelligence implementation in all business processes by 2025 and implement humanoid robots by 2028.
