We believe an inclusive environment will yield exceptional contributions, and instill a sense of belonging.
At GIC, we seek to build an inclusive culture via both top-down and bottom-up initiatives. All through actively inviting participation and contribution from all, and ensuring diverse needs of all our employees are well met. From designing our diverse range of employee benefits with inclusivity in mind, to organising GIC-wide celebratory and learning campaigns on key diversity, equity, & inclusion events globally. We recognise that every employee has a part to play in this continuous journey towards greater inclusivity.
This journey towards a more inclusive GIC will continue to require consistent learning, dedicated commitment and intentional efforts to impact our day-to-day micro, workplace experiences. For lasting impact to happen, each one of us plays a role to forge our organization culture.
We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive other benefits and privileges of employment.

Celebrations and Commitment
GIC is a member of the Singapore Business Network on Disability (SBNoD) and continues to explore partnerships with relevant organisations in the disability inclusion space. We regularly engage SG Enable to deliver educational workshops to GICians on Interacting with persons with disabilities to better foster an inclusive and enabling workplace for all. We have also been a regular participant in the RISE Mentorship Programme by SG Enable, where GICians mentor students with disabilities on topics related to career development. Through this, we hope mentees will gain confidence, develop relevant skills, learn more about the working world, and build a network that will help their career in future.
Enabling Mark (Silver)
In 2021, GIC was honoured to be among the inaugural winners of the Enabling Mark (Silver) by SG Enable, in recognition of our efforts in promoting the inclusion of persons with disabilities into mainstream society. This national-level award recognises organisations who adopt best practices, demonstrate good outcomes, and show commitment to disability-inclusive employment. The assessment of the award reviewed GIC’s workplace accessibility, accommodations, and the efforts we have made to ensure equitable access and opportunities for employees with disabilities. We were also validated for our fair and progressive human resource practices such as equitable compensation and benefits, learning development and advancement to ensure access and opportunities for employees with disabilities.
