Singapore, July 31, 2006

NCS Group, a leading regional IT and communications engineering services provider in the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions, received the prestigious Work-Life Achiever award on 28 July 2006.  An initiative by the Ministry of Manpower, the Work-Life Excellence and Work-Life Achiever Awards recognise organisations with effective Work-Life Strategies in Singapore. These biennial awards reward forward-thinking organisations and recognise them as great employers.

NCS's philosophy has always been aimed at achieving a Balanced Organisation by equally emphasising business and personal development.  Only when employees are healthy and happy at work, they produce innovative work results.

NCS recently celebrated the passion and excellence of its people at a staff event held at Suntec City Convention, aptly themed “PASSION!”.  The event displayed the drive, zeal and commitment of NCS staff towards work as well as personal development.   

Dr Chong Yoke Sin, NCS Group Chief Executive Officer says, “NCS Group not only prides itself as a preferred IT and communications engineering solutions provider, we are also widely regarded as an Employer of Choice in the region.
