WELLNESS PROGRAMS FOR EMPLOYEES

The Lunch and Learn Programs were held regularly to promote Work-Life Balance.

Staff members were also sponsored to take part in runs and hikes to maintain their health & fitness level. Social, recreational & charitable programs such as New Hire Lunch Gathering, Annual Outing, Christmas Party and Annual Dinner, Charity Lunch Party were held to enhance internal communication and affirm a sense of belonging.

 

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES

As with previous years, the Group has actively promoted awareness of social responsibilities to our employees.

 

The Group generously donated our products to organizations such as Youth Outreach & St James Settlement to support their charitable programs. We also supported a wide range of fund-raising programs such as the Dragon Foundation Golf Tournament at Mission Hills Golf Club, Sowers Action Challenging 12 Hours 2010, the 2011 Community Chest BOCHK Charity Golf Day, Heifer-Credit Agricole CIB Race to Feed 2010 and donations for Qinghai Earthquake victims organized by the Red Cross.

 

CARE FOR THE COMMUNITY

Our volunteer team, formed by our employees and managers, partnered with Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council paid regular home visits, organized birthday parties & outings for elderly members who live alone, suffer from chronic diseases or physically handicapped. This year, we accumulated over 1600 hours of volunteer work, serving over 300 people in need. Since 2005, the Group has been bestowed the award of “Caring Company Logo” by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service in recognition of our care for the community.

 

EDUCATION SPONSORSHIP

To promote the awareness of design value and to enhance the expertise of the design professionals and business students, we also offer sponsorships to support student projects, contests, and leadership programs. The “PolyU Innovation & Entrepreneurship Global Student Challenge” and “HK 200 Leadership Project” organized by Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups are two of the key annual sponsorship programs. These programs aim at encouraging the youths to contribute their learning to the society and equipping them with the right attitude, knowledge and leadership skills to learn the working environment in the real business world.

 

This year, the Group expanded education sponsorship from Hong Kong to mainland China. We have successfully raised fund for the 18 high school students, living in remote areas in Liannan, Guangdong of China, to further their studies. The Group not only offer donation but also fielded a CSR volunteer team of 20 people to pay them home visits.
