We believe that every individual has a set of unique skills and talents to contribute to the success of the company. Despite having varying levels of seniority within the organisation, SPO has a “flat” hierarchy and people across positions and specialisations communicate freely and openly with one another. We encourage autonomy at work and every employee is empowered to use their knowledge and expertise to deliver the best results.
SPO has a strong learning culture and embraces continuous improvement and lifelong learning. We are committed to Business Excellence and use structured training modules to drive work efficiency and bring incremental improvements in every aspect of the business. Regardless of which department you work in, you will be involved in actively contributing ideas and projects to improve business processes.
Our shore-based employees are provided ample learning opportunities with e-learning platforms and training programmes to hone their professional and interpersonal skills. We believe in providing stretched assignments and overseas secondment as key development opportunities for our talent.
