The event marked a memorable celebration for employees at SJK (C) Sg Way, the inaugural venue for the town hall meeting initiated in 2012. Over the years, LBS has witnessed remarkable growth, evolving from a team of 160 to a substantial workforce of over 800 employees.
Under the central theme of Celebrating Diversity and Strengthening Unity, the occasion represented a significant milestone in fostering an inclusive community. Employees adorned themselves in traditional attire, emphasising the sense of unity within the LBS family.

The event encapsulated a professional atmosphere, highlighting LBS's commitment to both corporate excellence and cultural appreciation.
The successful engagement is a reflection of the company’s growth in being able to bridge a cultured community through the power of flexibility, adaptability and mutual respect nurtured among each other.
LBS and MGB group executive chairman Tan Sri Lim Hock San said: “2023 was an achievement-filled year applicable in both personal, cultural, and corporate contexts. Similarly, I envision the team to continue staying united not just as the employees of LBS but as a talented family which will continue our success journey ahead.”
The focal point of the meeting brought to light the key priorities for 2024, encompassing strategy, innovation, culture and financial governance, all centred around one objective: Sustainability.
This underscores LBS’s ongoing commitment to nurture and cultivate a sustainable workforce, aligning with the company’s broader mission to contribute significantly to the community through the progressive green building practices.
The stage also featured insights on advanced AI, digitalisation and construction technology initiatives. These endeavours hold the potential to position our organization as a prominent leader in the Construction Industry 4.0, reflecting our dedication to staying at the forefront of industry trends and advancements.
