Physical and mental well-being of stakeholders
浙江快乐彩几点开奖 www.cpcjbn.com.cn The Group links its human resources policies with the United Nations’ (“UN”) Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”) – Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth. To achieve this, we are constantly monitoring and strengthening our policies and practices to promote diversity and equal opportunities, eliminate all forms of discrimination, protect labour rights, create safe and secure working environments, and provide staff with training and development opportunities.
Through the active engagement of our key stakeholders, we are working to extend this commitment from our own employees to, as far as we can influence them, those employed by our contractors and suppliers.
To maintain a healthy workplace, it is crucial to promote a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. Our “Step Challenge”, for example, encourages staff members to walk more extensively for their own health, while helping to reduce carbon emissions. We are delighted to add meaning to the exercise by donating to charitable organisations during the course of the challenge. Understanding that emotional health is equally important, a “Raindrop Listens” programme is in place offering a 24-hour counselling hotline service managed by professional counsellors.
We also aim to have a positive impact on staff wellness through other initiatives, such as “We Care” and a range of healthy diet, fun and sports activities. We are glad to see positive staff feedback on these initiatives, and in response, have turned some of them into regular programmes such as the annual “Green Salad Day”.
Family-friendly employment culture
It is a significant part of our culture that our employees feel respected for making their family a priority. We support initiatives that allow staff members to achieve a balanced life between work and family. These range from family days, to internship programmes for staff’s children, and provision of supportive facilities for breastfeeding.
Staff training and development
With the mission of developing a high-performance team to spur the continuous growth of the Group, we are constantly updating and strengthening our talent development efforts. In 2018, we revamped the new staff orientation exercise, and furthered our efforts in skills and leadership training. Our “Kerry WeChat Academy” continues to serve as an effective online learning platform for property management team in the Mainland.
We appreciate staff contributing their creative ideas to enhance our working environment and team performance. In this respect, we maintain an “i-Suggest” channel to collect their suggestions, with many practical ideas had already been adopted in our daily operation.
