Who is most productive?

SIX finalists are vying for PATA Singapore Chapter’s search for the most productive practice this year.

The six finalists, picked from 58 companies, are Mandarin Orchard Singapore, Fairmont Singapore, Dynasty Travel International, International Paradise Connexions Tours & Travel, Adrenalin Events & Education and Vital Shared Services (a department under Singapore’s finance ministry).

This is the second year the chapter is organising the competition, and this year’s challenge becomes more relevant in light of “tightening labour market conditions and economic uncertainties”, according to organisers.

The “Our Productivity Story” competition comprises three phases: essay submissions, seminar presentation and online video voting.

This year roped in 20 per cent more participants than last year.

The six finalists presented their productivity initiatives to a panel of judges at a tourism industry productivity seminar jointly organised by the PATA chapter and the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) as part of the competition.

They are producing a short video on their productivity stories which will be posted on YouTube. The public may vote for the best story from November 14 to 30. The votes would contribute to half of the competition’s final results which would be announced during the annual Tourism Ball on December 3.

“I am encouraged to see the high quality of the finalists’ entries and the diversity of the productivity initiatives the participants of the competition had rolled out to improve their business competitiveness,” said Dr Robin Yap, chairman of activities, PATA Singapore Chapter.
