Our People Philosophy

PSA recognises the value its employees bring to the overall winning success of the Group through their active participation and contribution, and a strong passion for what we do.

The Group is committed to develop and motivate our employees to always strive for “Excellence in Everything We Do” in line with achieving business objectives and fulfilling professional goals.

We are guided by our core beliefs in Diversity, Equal Opportunity, Leadership Grooming and Learning & Development. Together, we take ownership of their careers and progress to higher levels of personal accomplishment.

How We Work


  • We believe that our people are motivated individuals, passionate about what they do, and always giving of their best.
  • Every contribution matters and the company fully appreciates one and all.


  • We believe in teamwork – where the sum is bigger than all the individual parts.
  • We foster a collaborative climate, with shared goals and resources and towards common ends.


  • We believe in a work environment that attracts, retains and fully engages diverse talents, leading to enhanced innovation and creativity in our services.
  • We continue to build a work culture where all employees feel welcome, valued, and able to express their ideas and beliefs freely. By doing so, we are better able to encourage diversity of thought and approach; and more likely to discover innovative ways to enhance our services.

Work-Life Balance

  • PSA acknowledges that a well-balanced personal and work life results in greater productivity.
  • We have comprehensive programmes for employee welfare and family life enhancement.
