Wharf T&T attains ‘2015/16 Family-Friendly Employers Award’

Hong Kong — Oct 26, 2016 — Wharf T&T is proud to attain the award of ‘2015/16 Family-Friendly Employers Award’ organised by Home Affairs Bureau and the Family Council in recognition of our impressive implementation of family-friendly employment policies, along with dedication to raise greater awareness of family values. A total of 2,700 corporations took part in the award scheme. Wharf T&T is among the 42 companies who have been named “2015/16 Distinguished Family-Friendly Employer” under the Corporations Category.

Wharf T&T understands the needs of employees and takes their comments seriously into consideration in implementing a series of family-friendly policies and practices. The setup of Family Care Room aims at supporting female colleagues’ breastfeeding needs. Together with other employee and family care benefits, special arrangements and outside-the-workplace family-friendly employment policies and practices, such as the establishment of Social Club with representatives from all divisions, has steered successful work plans with a wide spectrum of family-care activities to build a family-friendly and caring culture in the workplace. “Our employees are the most important assets of the Company. Helping them achieve a work life balance can help retain our best talent and achieve their full potential.” Florence adds.

Over the years, Wharf T&T continuously improves the working conditions for our employees. With the decrease in working hours and increase in number of annual leave, employees can spend more quality time with their families. As family-friendly policies will enhance team spirit and staff morale in the long run, Wharf T&T will continue to create a harmonious working environment for employees and help make a positive impact on employees’ family life.

The Family Council organised the award scheme to promote family values and a caring culture in the business sector and the community as a whole. The judging panel evaluated companies based on their family-friendly employment policies and practices, benefits to the company and employees, rationale for such policies, as well as management’s commitment to promote a family-friendly spirit.
