Corporate Responsibility

A Willing Heart

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” – Aesop

 

The GMP Group visited Willing Hearts, a secular, non-affiliated charity, wholly run by volunteers. It operates as a soup kitchen 365 days a year, preparing, cooking and delivering 5,000 meals daily to beneficiaries all over Singapore. They include the elderly, the disabled, low-income families, children from single-parent households and migrant workers.

Recruitment agency to provide scholarships for needy ITE nursing students

On Nurses’ Day, The GMP Group is giving away $12,000 worth of scholarships to deserving ITE nursing students Singapore, 20 July 2012 – Nursing student, Ms Teo Mei Shan, was a graphic designer, zoo keeper and beautician before she finally decided that a career in nursing is her true calling. And it was only after much encouragement from one of her regular facial customers, who was a staff nurse, that Ms Teo finally decided to enrol for the Nitec in Nursing programme at the Institute of Technical Education.

 

“It was tough in the beginning especially when I didn’t have a biology background and had topped studying for a long time,” said the 27-year-old Ms Teo. “But I know that a nursing career is something that I really want and I have to persevere.”

 

The road for Ms Teo has been an uphill one especially since she was supporting her elderly mother before she resigned from her beautician job. Since enrolling for the nursing programme, she has been living on her past savings to pay for her studies and personal expenses. Her married sister and brother are helping her shoulder the burden of family expenses.

 

But the student, who has a perfect Grade Point Average (GPA) of 4 points- is setting her sights higher. “I feel relieved to receive this scholarship as I can be assured of support to tide me over my education. I am very grateful (to The GMP Group), as without such support, it is really quite tough.”

 

Ms Teo is one of the many students that The GMP Group has helped since the scholarship programme started in 2010. Over the last two years, 30 students have benefitted from the bond-free scholarships and many have gone on to pursue a diploma in nursing. Another 10 students will receive the scholarship this year during the Nurses’ Day celebration at ITE College East on 20 July 2012.

 

One of last year’s scholarship recipients, Mr Brandon Chia, who is pursuing a diploma in nursing with Ngee Ann Polytechnic now, said: “The scholarship really motivated me to do well and helped me financially.” Mr Brandon Chia is also the recipient for the CE ExcellenCE Award for the Class of December 2011, and the Lee Kuan Yew Gold Medal in 2012. In his graduation speech, Mr. Chia thanked The GMP Group for the financial support.

 

“As a recruitment agency, we are aware that Singapore is in need of more nursing professionals,” said Mr Josh Goh, assistant director of corporate services at The GMP Group. He added that besides helping the deserving nursing students, the scholarship aims to help the national talent crunch of nurses and paramedics by building up a bigger talent pool of nursing professionals in Singapore.

 

Unlike other scholarship programmes which assess the scholarship applicant mainly on his/her GPA score, The GMP Group takes into consideration the student’s family per capita income and also the student’s interest in a nursing career.

 

Mr Goh said: “We know of a number of ITE students who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Despite that, these scholarship recipients have displayed tenacity and have the potential to do exceptionally well in their studies and careers.

 

“We want these exceptional individuals to have the best opportunities to overcome their initial

challenges and actualize their full potential.”

The GMP Group – Dr Giam Cheng Lan Scholarship

To commemorate Nurses’ Day, GMP awarded scholarships to twenty underprivileged students this year. The recipients of The GMP Group – Dr Giam Cheng Lan Scholarship possess a NITEC in Nursing or a Higher NITEC in Paramedic and Emergency Care. The scholarship will help cover necessary expenses such as textbooks and school fees.

 

“With this scholarship, we hope to provide needy but deserving students with a route to continuing education and a chance to contribute to the society once they graduate,” said Josh Goh, assistant director for corporate services, The GMP Group. “Furthermore, with the healthcare industry already facing a talent crunch, this scholarship will incentivise our future nurses and paramedics to stay within the industry, and help grow the talent pool.”

 

This is what some of the recipients had to say:

 

“The scholarship will help me prepare financially for further studies as I find it difficult to juggle a part-time job with school work right now. I will be able to use the scholarship for partial payment of my present schooling expenses, and save the rest for a Diploma in Nursing I intend to take up after my course in ITE. I will then be able to use the rest of the amount for school necessities such as textbooks and school fees. Thank you, GMP, for your generosity.”

– Majidah Binte Abdul Majid

 

“Receiving the GMP scholarship has not only helped me financially, but it is also a testament that my hard work and achievements were recognised. I was finally able to show my parents, who have always believed in me and supported me through ITE, how much I appreciate the sacrifices they have made. I have made them proud. I am deeply thankful to The GMP group for recognising my efforts. The scholarship has renewed my motivation and I am ready to further my studies in a polytechnic. Thank you, GMP.”

– Hafizah Binte Md Kamil

 

“Being able to qualify for this award really tells a lot about one’s capabilities and standard of work. It is indeed an honour for me to be one of The GMP Group – Dr Giam Cheng Lam’s Scholarship awardees. Being awarded the scholarship is an affirmation and recognition that hard work does not always go down the drain. It is an instant boost of motivation to carry on with studies, as balancing school with part time work was really tiring during the period. I believe one should always stay positive in pursuing their passion, because with determination, no matter how tough times will be, reaching for success will never be a mission impossible. I’m really grateful to receive this scholarship from GMP that will be making a difference through the remaining of my course of study.”

– Ng Yu Jun

 

“I’m grateful for being awarded this scholarship. This scholarship will be very beneficial to me when I pursue further education in Nursing. I would use the money fruitfully and ensure it is well spent. The scholarship will help ease the financial strain on my family while allowing me to be self-sufficient and independent. With it, I will be able to concentrate more on doing well instead of being burdened by financial concerns.”

– Rachel Ann

 

“I would like to take this chance to say thank you to GMP for awarding me with The GMP Group – Dr Giam Cheng Lan Scholarship. Not only is it a significant financial aid, it will also help me further my studies to obtain a Diploma in Nursing in a polytechnic. Receiving this scholarship has brought me closer to my dream career in nursing. Thank you, GMP!”

– Chew Hock Meng

GMP Gives Back!

Shaping Destinies is not just about finding the right fit between job seeker and client, but also helping others to realize their dreams.

The ten student recipients of GMP’s Dr Giam Cheng Lan Scholarship together with faculty members from School of Applied & Health Sciences, principal of ITE College East, GMP’s Chairman and Assistant Director

 

The GMP Group is not merely a leading staffing and HR consultancy; we are an organisation that cares. Being in the business of ‘Shaping Destinies’, we aim not only to find the best match between job seeker and client, we also aspire to fulfill the aspirations of individuals.

 

And on 13 October 2010, we endeavoured to do simply that — by presenting ten Nursing students from ITE College East’s School of Applied & Health Sciences with a scholarship. The scholarship was awarded to the School’s outstanding individuals who have managed to excel in their studies despite of challenging circumstances. The scholarships were presented by Dennis Liang, Chairman of The GMP Group.

 

The Dr Giam Cheng Lan Scholarship was established in honour of GMP’s late founder, Dr Giam Cheng Lan. Dr Giam believed that no one should be deprived of a quality education. So in 2006, the GMP management decided to align all its charitable efforts to prepare youths through education for future challenges in the workforce — the Scholarship was set up to aid under-privileged students to pursue further studies.

 

Josh Goh, assistant director, Corporate Services at The GMP Group, commended the recipients for their tenacity and sheer determination to succeed. He admitted that it was tough to decide the recipients of the scholarship. ‘‘At first, we had only eight scholarships to give out,’’ he said. ‘‘But after interviewing 16 potential candidates, I couldn’t help but to appeal for more funds for another two scholarships.’’

 

And in his short speech at the scholarship presentation, Josh drew some similarities between

GMP’s initial struggles to success and the challenges the students faced. From humble beginnings – a small set up of one HR practitioner and two staff managing manpower solutions to the manufacturing industry – GMP grew from strength.

 

In a similar vein, Josh remarked to the students that it is through their own unique personal journeys to success that make them stronger and impervious to future struggles. It is important for them to carry on ‘‘fighting’’ as they will soon taste the fruit of their labour.
