Goodrich Global was recently featured in The Edge magazine dated 20 April,

2015.  Goodrich was cited to be one of SMEs ( Small Medium Enterprise) who has  learnt to capitalize on the varied skills of our multi-generational workforce.

Our headquarters based in Singapore has currently 120 employees, with 50% of them above the age of 40.  In the last 5 years, 13 older employees have joined the company. “We must always have a group of dedicated older people who can inspire the young people who can inspire the younger people who come in,”  says Mr. Chan Chong Beng, Co-founder and Chairman of Goodrich Global.

Miss Diana Soo, Head of Procurement & Export, was one of the experienced older workers who periodically helps the younger hires assimilate into the company.  The seniors will  mentor and coach the younger staff.

In the bid to engage our multi-generational employees, Goodrich Global started the I-Cube  program in 2014.  Each staff comes up with new ideas and subsequently works in teams to implement good ideas to improve the company’s productivity and work processes.

Most often, these teams are made up of younger and older employees, who bring vastly different ideas to the table.  By tapping both its older and younger workforce, our company has successfully kept its attrition rate to below 5% over the last 5 years.

Goodrich Global continues to make significant efforts to engage our older employees so they will contribute to their best capacity.
