The Marina Bay Sands casino resort (pictured) in Singapore wants to boost its 10,000-strong workforce and meet a target of 11,000 employees by the end of this year. A press release issued on Friday by Marina Bay Sands Pte Ltd said 700 job positions were being offered at a job fair at the property’s Sands Expo and Convention Centre. The two-day job fair began on Sunday.
The subsidiary of United States-based gaming group Las Vegas Sands Corp said it needed bar staff, sous-chefs, security guards, butlers and slot machine attendants, among other workers.
The operator says its employee attrition rate last year was about 13.7 percent. In the first nine months of last year, the industry-wide benchmark was a 29.4-percent turnover, the press release said, identifying Singapore’s Ministry of Manpower as its source.
The press release said more than half of Marina Bay Sands’ workforce has been with the nine-year-old company for more than five years.
The operator recently launched a job-rotation scheme to involve workers in all aspects of hotel operations. The programme sees staff spend time training in the organisation’s front office, food and beverage, guest services, valet and housekeeping departments.
“The Cross-Deployment Scheme allows us to identify talents and immerse them deeply in a variety of functions, in a fast-track and rewarding manner,” said Pek Chin Siong, vice-president, hotel operations, Marina Bay Sands.
