Omno and ESG (Part 2): Our Partnership with Thye Hua Kwan Moral Charities for Inclusivity

by Team Omno

At Omno, our commitment to social responsibility and inclusivity is more than just words—it's a core part of who we are. This is evident in our partnership with Thye Hua Kwan Moral Charities (THKMC), the charity arm of Thye Hua Kwan Moral Society, which is dedicated to providing social and welfare services to the community.

Since its establishment in October 2011, THKMC has been relentless in their efforts to assist various groups within our community. They offer more than 70 programmes and services for the elderly, the sick, families, persons with disabilities, and children.

Their mission aligns perfectly with our commitment at Omno to environmental accountability, sustainability, and inclusivity.

Our collaboration with THKMC, which began in April 2022, focuses on the THK Pan-Disability Centre @ Eunos. This initiative is designed to enhance the employability of people with disabilities by providing them with opportunities to learn and adapt to new skills and environments. We at Omno have welcomed trainees from the centre, offering them roles in repacking, assembly, and inventory management. This partnership has not only equipped the trainees with new skills, but also given them a chance to experience a working environment that respects and values their contributions.

Our commitment to this cause extends beyond merely providing job opportunities. In collaboration with THKMC, we are developing innovative methodologies to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of each trainee. This includes assessing their motor skills, IQ capacity, personality, and physical capacity, and making necessary adjustments within our company to facilitate their workflow. Our dedication to inclusivity has led to a transformation in our operation, equipment, office setup, packing method, and box structure.

Omno products, crafted with respect for nature and boasting unique scents like Solace, Moonatic, and Odyssey, are displayed at prestigious locations in Singapore and Malaysia, including Michelin-starred restaurants and Raffles Hotel. Our sustainable ingredients and packaging have received approval from the Accor Sustainability Department, further solidifying our commitment to environmental responsibility.

Our partnership with THKMC stands as a testament to our dedication to inclusivity and social responsibility. We have recruited six trainees from THKMC, two of whom are potential candidates for full-time employment. This initiative is a work in progress, with goals to scale up the training and provide more job opportunities for these individuals.

Our work with THKMC exemplifies how corporations can play a significant role in promoting inclusivity and social responsibility. It's not just about providing job opportunities, but also about creating an environment where everyone, regardless of their abilities, can contribute and feel valued. This is the essence of our ethos at Omno - everything in equilibrium, your body, and our planet in balance.

As consumers, you have the power to support businesses that align with your values. By choosing Omno, you're not just investing in premium personal care products; you're also contributing to a more inclusive and sustainable world.
