Sands China Recognises Long-Serving Team Members



(Macao, April 12, 2018) – Around 6,200 Sands China team members are celebrating their 10-year service anniversaries with the company at more than 60 departmental celebrations that began in March and continue through April. 

With Sands China rooted in Macao for over 13 years now, a total of more than 8,500 Sands China team members have been with the company for 10 years or more, with this latest group of 6,200 having reached their 10-year milestones in 2016, 2017 or 2018. More than 75 per cent of them are Macao locals.

“Sands China is incredibly grateful for the loyalty, dedication and hard work of our team members celebrating their 10-year anniversaries with the company,” said Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd. “Team members like these continue to be a key factor in our ongoing success, and Sands China cherishes all of its team members as our company’s greatest asset. Their commitment to outstanding service – both toward fellow team members and to our guests and visitors – continues to reap benefits for the company and supports Macao’s development as a world centre of tourism and leisure.”

Stephen Chio, a manager in the human resources department, said: “Sands China has given me the opportunity to work with many experienced teams from all over the world, to learn world-class management strategies, and to cultivate international-mindedness. I feel like I have fully integrated myself into the company's culture while growing professionally, and have developed nothing but positive feelings toward this company.”

At celebrations decorated with a 10-year service theme, team members receive “The Perfect 10” commemorative service pins and award trophies, and MOP 500 food and beverage vouchers (a total of more than MOP 3 million worth of vouchers in all) for them to enjoy Sands China’s restaurants with their families as a token of gratitude for their continuous support.

And to celebrate and share their milestones with friends and family, team members can post selfies on Facebook with the hashtag #APerfect10, which also enters them in a lucky draw. A name will be drawn each month from May to December, with the winner receiving a limited-edition commemorative model of The Venetian® Macao created exclusively for the integrated resort’s 10th anniversary.

Sandy Cheang, associate director of finance, said: “During the past 10 years, I have held several positions in the finance department, and have learned a wide range of skills and knowledge along the way. I’ve even obtained an accounting license through the company’s sponsorship. I am grateful that Sands China has always put great emphasis on team members' personal development, and that the company continues to offer an abundance of learning and career development opportunities.”

Sands China has always viewed its team members as the company’s greatest asset, recognising their daily commitment to service excellence as a crucial component in delivering outstanding experiences to guests and visitors. The company therefore continues to invest in their career development, and in the broadening of their professional horizons, resulting in thousands of locals advancing upward in the company. Sands China has made nearly 18,000 promotions to date, involving over 10,000 local team members; more than 3,300 local team members have been promoted more than once. Sands China’s management team currently employs over 2,500 locals, over two-thirds of whom have been working with the company for more than 10 years – a testament to the success of Sands China’s investment into its team members.
