Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Policy

SBS TRANSIT is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion.

Our human capital is our most valuable resource. The collective sum of our people’s individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, creativity, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent represents a significant part of our culture.

We embrace our employees’ differences in age, color, nationality, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender, language, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, socio-economic status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.

SBS TRANSIT’s DEI initiatives are applicable but not limited to our practices and policies on recruitment and selection; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; promotions; transfers; social and recreational programs; layoffs; terminations; and the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of diversity, equality and inclusion. 

The Board drives SBS TRANSIT’s DEI Policy by setting the example of ensuring that the composition of Directors is a balance of tripartite experience from government, labour and business in order to appreciate the values of collective consensus and avoid unproductive group-think and biasness. All employees share the same values to facilitate inclusive discussions to push for innovative business developments.

All employees of SBS TRANSIT have a responsibility to always treat one another with dignity and respect. All employees are expected to exhibit teamwork, cooperation and conduct that reflects inclusion at all times.

All employees are also required to attend the DEI Policy awareness training to enhance their knowledge and deepen their understanding of their responsibilities.

Any employee who is found to have exhibited any inappropriate conduct or behaviour against   others may be subject to disciplinary action. Employees who believe they have been subjected to any kind of discrimination that conflicts with the company’s DEI Policy and initiatives should seek assistance from a supervisor or a Human Resource representative.

SBS TRANSIT reserves the right to modify, suspend, change or terminate this Policy at any time in accordance with local law. This Policy does not create any contractual rights or obligations, whether expressed or implied. Subject to local law, the English-language version will prevail.
