DBS to hand out limited-edition jewellery to employees by end Feb

At an employee townhall on Friday, 9 February, DBS CEO Piyush Gupta surprised employees with the announcement of a one-of-a-kind 5oth anniversary gift - limited-edition jewellery commissioned by the bank to mark its jubilee year.

While sharing DBS’ fourth-quarter results, Gupta announced the DBS Sparks collection, modelled after the spark symbol in the DBS logo, to be gifted to its employees. For men, the collection has 18k gold-plated cufflinks, and for women a necklace with the spark pendant.

All DBS employees in its 18 markets will receive their gifts by the end of February.

Said Matthew Chow, senior associate at DBS Treasures, "I was watching Piyush on the live stream when he told us about the anniversary gifts. I have to say the timing was great, I’ve been wanting a pair of gold cufflinks for a while and this is such a thoughtful yet meaningful surprise."

The Sparks collection has been specially commissioned for DBS and is not available for sale. It is one of several anniversary initiatives to be rolled out this year. The bank has also proposed a special dividend of 50 cents a share to mark the 50th anniversary occasion.
