Suncity VIP Club is shedding staff via a voluntary layoff scheme in a bid to cut costs due to the adverse effects of Covid-19.

Volunteers are being promised a sizable benefits package, including extra allowances for over-60s, full provident fund payouts, medical insurance and help to find new jobs.

Suncity’s CEO Alvin Chau sent staff a personal memo, lamenting the effects of the pandemic and pointing out the urgent need to restructure.

The scheme is being launched a year after Chau surprisingly made Suncity VIP Club’s finances public to rebuff rumours that it was unable to cover its clients’ financial deposits.

Suncity Group’s Hong Kong-listed arm opened its first integrated resort, Hoiana in Vietnam, last year and is forging ahead with a major casino-hotel project in Manila as well as the Russian integrated resort Tigre de Cristal.

However, the company recently stepped back from a similar project in Wakayama, Japan, citing the current global situation.
