Pick-A-Buddy Inspirational Initiative

With more than a year into the pandemic, our team at Singapore has become no stranger to online meetings and workshops, and whilst we’ve gotten comfortable with remote working, nothing can beat the human interaction of spontaneous hangouts and brainstorm sessions for inspiration with our colleagues and friends…

So, when Singapore tightened Covid restrictions again (limiting social gatherings to groups of two and encouraging work from home), we kick-started the “Pick-A-Buddy Inspirational initiative”…

Last month, we paired up and explored the different arts and cultural activities available in Singapore. Coinciding with World Mental Health Day, this initiative encouraged us to take a break from our desks and enjoy some bonding time with each other – we all know how important this can be for our health and wellbeing!

We’re feeling extra refreshed and inspired from venturing out and had great fun exploring. We’re wishing everyone a safe and inspired month ahead!
