People of Purpose

People of Purpose is DBS’s 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 in which we live and work.

Last year, thousands of DBS volunteers invested more than 37,000 hours in a diverse range of volunteering initiatives to positively impact the lives of the elderly, children, persons with disabilities and marginalised families across Asia.

In 2017, we continue to increase our collective impact with programmes that focus on Active Ageing, Education, and Environment.

Applying skills to make a difference

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

As a purpose-driven organisation, DBS believes that our employees can make an impact in society through the investment of our time and efforts in the communities we work and live in. To understand more about what we do as a People of Purpose, watch these videos or write to us at
