Silk Relo Ltd., Silk Relo (S) Pte Ltd., & K.C. Dat (S) Pte Ltd. (Trading as Asian Tigers Singapore) Are First to Earn Certification for Meeting International Standards in Diversity & Inclusion from Human Resource Standards Institute?
ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silk Relo Ltd., Silk Relo (S) Pte Ltd. and K. C. Dat (S) Pte Ltd. (Trading as Asian Tigers Singapore) are the first companies to demonstrate dedication to the highest standards of diversity and inclusion (D&I) by earning organizational certification from the Human Resource Standards InstituteSM (HRSISM). This achievement shows they not only are D&I global leaders in the international relocation services industry but also are leaders in international human resources (HR) best practices. HRSI certification validates that Silk Relo and Asian Tigers Singapore HR processes are aligned with International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 30415:2021: Human resource management (HRM) – D&I standards. It also verifies that their commitment to offering the best in human resources (HR) and D&I practices is backed up with real action.
The accomplishment is an important milestone for award-winning Silk Relo, according to CEO Kay Kutt.
“Silk Relo’s mission is to make a difference one transferee at a time. When I look at it through the lens of D&I, our mission is to make a difference one person at a time. If we don’t do it for our team members, how are we going to do it for our clients, our customers, our stakeholders, our transferees?” Kutt said. “We are pleased to be at the forefront of D&I and the relocation industry in adherence to ISO HRM standards. Now, our customers and potential customers have a way to confirm that Silk Relo truly is implementing D&I best practices and know it will be a positive differentiator for us.”
Job seekers, customers, investors and government agencies increasingly demand that business relationships and internal processes and practices conform to D&I principles. The HRSI D&I Organizational Certification was developed to support ISO 30415:2021 Human Resource Management (HRM) – D&I. It leverages ISO guidance on D&I for organizations and allows comparisons of practices on objective bases with other organizations across national boundaries and industry sectors.
According to John Lim, managing director of Asian Tigers Singapore, the HRSI 30415:2021 certification shows the greater business world that D&I is a priority for the company.
“Over the last few years, diversity and inclusion have taken on prime space in everything that we talk about and do as an organization,” Lim shared. “D&I is unique because, unlike the other ISO systems, it cuts across the human factor. When you cut across the human factor within a country, you have different races, different beliefs and different cultures. Across different countries and different regions, we are all completely different. Our customers want to know that we recognize this and honor those differences both internally and externally.”
The HRSI D&I Certifiation is a game-changer for forward-thinking organizations that want to show they are committed to the highest levels of D&I, according to Dr. Amy Dufrane, CEO of HRCI, the parent company of HRSI.
“We celebrate Silk Relo and Asian Tigers Singapore being the first companies to earn HRSI D&I Certification! These leading international companies recognize that their employees, future employees, customers, vendors and external stakeholders would want to be associated with a relocation services company that is dedicated to D&I,” Dr. Dufrane said. “Earning an HRSI organizational certification allows companies to ensure that their HR activities are aligned with business goals using consensus-based, international HR standards. Now Silk Relo and Asian Tigers Singapore can display the HRSI 30415:2021 badge and seal of excellence to show their stakeholders that they are committed to excellence and continuous improvement in D&I.”
