 a key consideration for us as every member of our retail staff represents the brand and spirit of POPULAR. This is especially true for our front-line retail staff in the retail stores and school bookshops. We believe that our new retail uniforms will enable our retail staff to focus on serving the needs of our customers comfortably. The sharp appearance of our new uniforms will be integral to our retail staff ’s professional image as we continue to provide a complete and enjoyable shopping experience to our customers. Welcoming the New Uniforms With a Contest To celebrate the launch of our new retail uniforms, a photograph contest was organised to shine the spotlight on the staff who would be donning the new uniforms. A total of nine teams consisting of five retail staff each participated. Although we were hoping to see group photographs of staff showcasing themselves in their new Jurong Point _ 裕廊坊 uniforms, the implementation of more stringent COVID-19 restrictions meant that participating staff had to take their own portraits without their masks individually and create a collage for their team’s submission. While not ideal, our staff applied their creativity as they collated their individual portraits into interesting story sequences. Our panel of judges had a tough time deciding on the top three winners. In the end, they relied on a strict adherence to the judging criteria to pick the winners based on the message of the story sequence and how interesting the overall presentation was. The top prize was awarded to the entry from the staff of POPULAR Jurong Point, with the staff of POPULAR Hougang Mall and POPULAR Toa Payoh coming in as the first and second runners-up respectively. The remaining six teams were all awarded a consolation prize each for their effort and participation. Congratulations to all the participating teams! Thank you for sharing with the POPULAR family what our new retail uniforms mean to you! Toa Payoh _大巴窑 Every Team is a Winner To Popular Singapore, all the participating teams were winners as each and every entry met our objective of showcasing our new retail uniforms. Despite not being among top three winners, the team from POPULAR Tampines Mall went one step further and came up with a new tagline in their entry, “One Uniform One POPULAR”, to highlight the importance of our new retail uniforms to their team. Kudos to the POPULAR Tampines Mall team! We hope that all our retail staff had a memorable experience throughout the entire process and will continue to wear our new retail uniforms with pride and joy. Be sure to let Popular Singapore’s Human Resources Department have your feedback as we will continue to do our best for our fellow members of the POPULAR family. To us, the POPULAR uniforms means so much more. The POPULAR Tampines Mall team puts it best: One Uniform One POPULAR!   20 - popularnews 140
