This initiative is part of ERA’s ongoing corporate social responsibility initiative titled ‘ERA Loves’, which focuses on championing the causes of stray animals and the environment, and empowering underprivileged individuals to play a positive role in their communities. ERA’s corporate social responsibility is in line with BT BAF’s mission in transforming lives through the art, where the team has been nurturing young talents to develop their artistic skills, social and emotional competencies.
“ERA has always strongly believed in empowering our agents through various upgrading programs that equip them with relevant skills to be the best in their field. In the same spirit, we are in strong support of initiatives focused on social empowerment for the underprivileged, nurturing their talents and enabling beneficiaries to contribute meaningfully to our community,” said Jack Chua, Chief Executive Officer of ERA.
Over the years, ERA has spread the love by working with not-for-profit organisations such as Community Chest, SOSD and Canossaville Children and Community Services. The company has been awarded the ‘Ruby I-L-Y (I Love You) Award’ and named ‘Ambassador for the Deaf’ since 2010 by The Singapore Association for The Deaf. Most recently, ERA has also received the ‘Asia Responsible Enterprise Awards 2018’, under the social empowerment category, from Enterprise Asia.
