Stay Prepared- Business Psychological Resilience Programme

The Stay Prepared- Business Psychological Resilience Programme (B-PREP) is a programme by Temasek Foundation Cares and partners, Changi General Hospital and the Singapore Business Federation.

The B-PREP aims to establish a model and praxis for psychological resilience, which companies in Singapore can adopt to help manage the psychological and emotional impact of emergencies, threats and crises.

From large scale disasters or crises to emergencies and accidents at the workplace, B-PREP aims to help employees develop core skills and competencies to manage and respond to emotionally stressful situations.

Businesses will also learn to implement appropriate processes for coordinated response, and share their knowledge and best practices with one another.

The B-PREP initiative is driven by a Steering Committee whose members include:

  • Temasek Foundation
  • Changi General Hospital
  • Institute of Mental Health
  • KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital
  • Singapore Business Federation
  • CapitaLand
  • Keppel Corporation
  • Mapletree
  • SATS
  • Sembcorp
  • Singapore Airlines
  • Singapore Power
  • SMRT
  • ST Engineering

Phase 1 of the three-year B-PREP will consist of a baseline study and consultation, conducted by Changi General Hospital. The study and consultation will help inform the Steering Committee in its work to establish a working model and praxis. Phase 1 was completed in 2018 with the development of the B-PREP model which comprises a training pedagogy and manual for business psychological resilience.

Phase 2 is ongoing and involves introducing the B-PREP framework and provide training for selected Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in Singapore.

The Stay Prepared – B-PREP is a ‘Stay Prepared’ initiative. It complements other ‘Stay Prepared’ initiatives such as the Stay Prepared – Trauma Network for Children, SMRT-Temasek Foundation Cares AED on Wheels, and programmes to distribute face masks to households and vulnerable segments of the community.

‘Stay Prepared’ programmes are funded by the Temasek Emergency Preparedness Fund (T-PREP), which was initiated by Temasek and currently managed by Temasek Foundation Cares.
