As a future-ready public organisation, SLA strives to engage our staff and potential hires through a compelling workplace experience. In early 2016, we launched the SLA360 Virtual Reality (VR) video kit at recruitment and scholarship road shows, as well as other talent attraction platforms. By taking potential staff on a 360o VR tour of three iconic State properties managed by SLA, we helped them to understand our core businesses through a uniquely delivered employer brand story. To enhance work efficiency for our staff, we launched the Mobile Transport Claims application in March 2016. The first of its kind in the public sector, the app taps into the Global Positioning System (GPS) to capture location and distance details, and extracts public transport fares from SLA’s OneMap platform to make transport claim submissions hassle-free. The success of this initiative has led to SLA’s collaboration with Vital, the public sector’s centre for shared services, to roll out the app across other public sector agencies.
“We are constantly seeking out new and emerging technologies to improve employee experience,” says Lee San San, Senior Manager, Human Resource. “We need to go beyond traditional employee engagement platforms to connect with a diverse workforce and achieve operational efficiencies.”
