Standard Chartered shares its award-winning ‘Living with HIV’ programme with Thai companies
Standard Chartered continues its dynamic leadership role
in the fight against HIV/AIDS with the launch of a train-the-trainer
programme for employees of its business partners and corporate customers.
Last year Standard Chartered trained all of its 30,000 employees worldwide
using its award-winning “Living with HIV” staff peer education programme,
aimed at informing employees about the facts of HIV/AIDS, how it spreads,
how it can be prevented and how to care for those infected and affected.
Local employee champions who are culturally sensitive implement the
programme. The programme is simple, adapts well to various communities and
is successful in passing on the intended concept.
The air wars escalate
And the winner is the traveler
2004 has seen a price war between the airlines, all vying
to woo the traveler with lower and even lower fares. However, not all
airlines believe that the way to attract the tourist dollar (or baht) is
just to drop prices. There are other ways, according to AirAsia, one of the
newer groups to drop in over the Chiang Mai skies.
