As a purpose-driven organisation, we strive to create an impact beyond banking. People of Purpose (PoP) is DBS’ employee volunteer movement that brings our values to life, engages our employees, and leverages our time and skills to make meaningful contributions to the communities we live and work in. Our volunteering efforts are sustained and focused on three areas – the elderly, education and the environment, across our key markets.

Beyond service-based volunteer activation, DBS employees also engage in skills-based volunteering. Leveraging their diverse skills and knowledge in areas such as technology, financial management, data analysis, digital thinking, marketing communications and more, DBS volunteers contribute towards building the organisational capacity of social enterprises supported by DBS Foundation.

DBS staff constantly step up to solve pressing business issues and challenges that social enterprises face. Watch this video below to see how our skills-based volunteerism programmes take shape and how we put our staff’s problem-solving skills to the test, while solving real business issues of various social enterprises in a single day.

DBS firmly believes that its employees can make meaningful social impact in society through the investment of time, skills and efforts.
