Hand in Hand with the company reform that has taken place over the last two years, one other important issue, that of staff welfare, has and is being brought up to date. This will ensure that the all-round staff packages will be enhanced and optimised. This has been achieved through the collection of employees’ opinions by carrying out surveys and interviews undertaken by the Staff Welfare Working Committee which was formed last year for this very purpose. Now a series of staff benefit items from Marriage Leave & Gestures, New-born Subsidies, Study Subsidies, Group Merchants Discount Offers, Medical Coverage up to aged 65, Compassionate & Condolences Leave as well as Birthday Vouchers are now in place and applicable to all full-time employees. There are other improvements as well as new items in the pipeline currently under consideration and these will likely be confirmed and implemented in the not too distant future.
