Diversity And Equal Opportunity

We strongly believe that having an inclusive culture is important for our business. CDL provides equal opportunities for all employees without discrimination. Our recruitment process adheres to the strict guidelines on non-discrimination and fairness. There is no preference for any particular gender, ethnicity, religion, or age.

We have a diversified workforce across all age groups. In 2016, 85% of new recruits were from the millennials (born in 1978 or later). More than 40% of our current workforce now consists of millennials, injecting new ideas, enthusiasm, and energy to our organisation.

Gender Diversity

CDL has more females than males in both managerial and non-managerial categories – a testament to the company’s emphasis on gender diversity and the success of our pro-family initiatives.

In 2016, females in non-managerial were paid 96% and managerial* positions were paid 97% of the average pay of males, with female employees holding more of the junior positions within the Company.

*Exclude head of department (HOD) and Vice-President

In 2016, 40% of our HODs were female.

Racial and Disability Inclusion

CDL embraces an inclusive workplace in our multi-racial workforce from diverse educational backgrounds. Our workforce is nonetheless heavier on number of Chinese employees as a reflection of Singapore’s predominantly Chinese population. Where possible, we also provide fair employment opportunities for the less physically-abled. As of 2016, CDL has a wheel-chair bound employee who has been with the company for 7 years.

4 Other races include Malay, Indian, Eurasians and Caucasians.
