With all things human, we know that are bound to be imperfections- and that's perfect for us. We believe that pursuing perfection isn't about conforming to unrealistic standards (of business operation, of beauty and more), but rather embracing our perfect imperfections that are a result of our own individuality and experiences. Thus, we choose to stay true to our mission - of always being a people-first company,focused on what comes #fromwithin.
Discover our efforts in supporting the people that have allowed Porcelain to become the brand it is today:
Female-Founded & Female-Empowering
With stereotypes and gender norms still present within our society, we understand our responsibility as a female-founded business in supporting women within and outside of Porcelain.
Over 80% of our workforce in our main offices and 100% of our workforce in our spas are female. Apart from our strong female team, we have also implemented robust systems to support women at all different stages of life.
For expecting moms
We provide four paid days of medical leave for their check-ups and appointments.
For post-partum moms
We provide up to 120 days paid maternity leave and flexible work arrangements such as flexi-working hours and work from home arrangements whenever possible.
We seek to always stay attentive to the individual and respectful of one's own uniqueness. thus, we include individuals of different experiences, cultures, religions, and beliefs. After all, we're people creating for people.
We are excited to build a diverse, global and inclusive team where all employees are treated fairly. Singapore is by nature a multicultural state, with a majority of Chinese ethnicity. We’re proud to showcase the multicultural nature of our company, as 40% of our Singapore team are from our minority ethnicities: Indian, Malay, Others…
A System of Growth
At Porcelain, we always look to grow our people and our employees.
We believe in service leadership - instead of hierarchy, everyone is empowered and accountable to serve the clients the Porcelain way.
Porcelain would not be where it is today were it not for the help of its people, clients and community. Thus, we seek to give back to society as much as possible.

Beyond Social Services
With the help of our generous sponsors, we are proud to say that we managed to raise a sum of $5000, with an additional $5000 donation to purchase 100 packs of food items.
The Porcelain team took a day off to pack and distribute the items to the residents doorsteps. While it was unbelievably tough, it was extremely meaningful and we know that our hard work has paid off when we exchange it for smiles that brightened our day.
