The Transport Minister, Mr. Chee Hong Tat, graced the event by presenting the top honors.

They surpassed expectations by infusing creativity, care, and initiative into every task they undertook.

Service with Heart Wins the Day at Changi

Haresh S/O Chandran, Certis Aviation Security’s Service Operations Executive, recently received the ‘Service Personality of the Year’ award for his incredible act of kindness. On December 22, 2022, Haresh sprang into action when an older German passenger met with an accident. He assisted her to the clinic first and then to the hospital without hesitating.

But Haresh’s compassion didn’t stop at the hospital doors. He made it a point to visit the couple during their hospital stay, regularly checking in to provide comfort and assistance. His thoughtfulness shone through as he tackled problems big and small, from fixing a broken phone to ensuring the couple’s stay was comfortable.

His actions went beyond professional duty. Haresh also spent Christmas day with them, ensuring they felt a sense of home while far away from theirs. When it was time for their return flight, Haresh coordinated meticulously, ensuring everything went smoothly.

What drives Haresh’s extraordinary empathy is his own life experience with dyslexia. Overcoming the challenges associated with it, he has developed a profound dedication to helping others, a quality that truly sets him apart.
