Awarding recipients to continue to shine and influence their colleagues
Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM) and Land Transport Authority (LTA), together with all the public transport companies and associations organised The National Courtesy Award—Transport Gold in 2003. The Transport Gold Award started in 1999 as a fringe event along with the National Courtesy Campaign.
The Transport Gold Award awards courteous staff within the public transport service sector and forms a platform for the entire transport service to launch a courtesy programme within the industry.
In 2012, the committee renamed the Award to The National Kindness Award—Transport Gold. From 1999 till date, about 6,952 awards were presented to public transport operators who have gone the extra mile.
In its 29th year, The National Kindness Award—Service Gold recognises service staff in the Hotel Industry who had displayed exemplary service and gracious behaviour during their course of work.
This award inspires the recipients to continue to shine and influence their colleagues in contributing towards a more pleasant and gracious society.
Established in 1994, the National Kindness Award – Service Gold was incepted by the then Singapore Courtesy Council and Singapore Hotel Association (SHA) to recognise and honour hotel staff who have gone the extra mile in their line of duty. This award is a celebration of the triumph in kindness in the hospitality industry. It is opened to both the Rank & File and Managerial level of hotel employees who had displayed kind acts of courtesy at their workplace.
In 2003, to appreciate guests who have exhibited exemplary graciousness to the service staff, a new category of ‘Gracious Guests’ have been introduced to thank those who have shown us the importance of reciprocating kindness and graciousness.
Over the years, the National Kindness Award – Service Gold has seen an increased in the number of participating hotels and have recognised over 1400 hotel staff since its inception.
