  • Ms. Zanariah's empathetic approach to leadership has fostered a supportive environment, enhancing team cohesion and performance.
  • Aetos' inclusive hiring practices have enabled women to rise to leadership positions, enriching the company culture and contributing to its success.
  • Aetos' investment in professional development and internal transfers has been key to unlocking employees' potential, facilitating career progression and skill enhancement.

Heart of Singapore's security sector, a story of remarkable career transformation and leadership unfolds at Aetos Security Services. Ms. Zanariah Yob Ahmad, once an outdoor education professional, now commands a team of 300 auxiliary police officers (APOs), showcasing the profound impact of Aetos' commitment to diversity and inclusive hiring practices.

At the age of 32, Ms. Zanariah made a daring mid-career switch to the security sector, inspired by the professionalism and dedication she observed among APOs during national events. Despite the initial challenges of adapting to a new environment, Aetos' supportive framework, including mentorship and professional development programs, facilitated her seamless transition. "It was a steep learning curve for me," Ms. Zanariah recalls, "But Aetos ensured I had proper support and paired me with a mentor to show me the ropes."

As the second female commanding officer at Aetos Auxiliary Police Force, Ms. Zanariah's leadership style is characterized by empathy and approachability. Her ability to foster a supportive and caring environment has not only enhanced team cohesion but also encouraged officers to seek her advice on both professional and personal matters. This empathetic approach to leadership has been instrumental in building effective teams capable of handling high-profile projects, such as the 2024 Singapore Airshow.

Aetos' inclusive hiring practices have been pivotal in enabling women like Ms. Zanariah to ascend to leadership positions. By valuing diversity and providing equal opportunities for career advancement, Aetos has cultivated a workforce that reflects the rich tapestry of Singapore's society. This commitment to diversity has not only enriched the company's culture but also contributed to its recognition as one of Singapore's best employers in 2024.

Aetos' investment in professional development programs and internal transfers has empowered employees to expand their expertise and take on new challenges. For Ms. Zanariah, these opportunities have been crucial in her journey to leadership. "These on-the-job training programmes demonstrate how Aetos helps its staff to acquire new skills and expand their expertise," she notes, highlighting the company's role in her professional growth.

Ms. Zanariah Yob Ahmad's ascent to commanding a team of 300 at Aetos Security Services is a beacon of hope and inspiration. It underscores the transformative power of inclusive hiring practices, empathetic leadership, and professional development opportunities. As companies like Aetos continue to champion diversity and support career progression, the future of leadership in Singapore's security sector looks brighter and more inclusive than ever.
