Sun Hung Kai Properties Named Top 10 Employer for Another Year
Well-recognized as a Trustworthy Brand with Solid Foundation in Hong Kong

2018-02-22

With a long-standing company reputation defined by excellence, superior benefits and extensive staff training and development opportunities, the 45-year-old Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited (SHKP) has been selected among the 10 most popular employers for the second straight year based on jobsDB’s Top Ten Companies Survey 2017.  The survey was conducted across the Asia-Pacific region by jobsDB and JobStreet as part of SEEK Asia, which polled the opinions of over 26,000 job seekers. 

SHKP cares about its employees, values talent and is committed to building long-term relationships with all staff members.  The Group has put in place a comprehensive and diversified welfare system that takes care of staff and their family needs.  In addition to offering competitive remuneration packages and fringe benefits such as medical benefits, leave and allowances, staff also enjoy free nutritious lunches at work every day.  In line with its commitment to nurturing talent, the Group extends the caring spirit to employees’ family members, establishing scholarships to subsidize children of staff to pursue undergraduate studies or join overseas exchange programmes to broaden the horizons of the younger generation. 

To keep up with the times, the Group initiates different activities and measures based on the specific interests and aspirations of staff from different generations.  For example, understanding the younger generation’s desire to achieve a proper work-life balance, the Group continually makes efforts to offer a host of leisure activities that benefit physical and mental health, such as fitness, flower arranging and cooking classes.  It takes into account the family needs of generation X staff and organizes activities suitable for every member of the family such as movie screenings, parent-child cooking classes, volunteer work and much more.  A flexible working hours scheme has also been implemented to allow greater flexibility for staff when looking after their families, planning for personal development opportunities and other activities as well as arranging rest time to strike a better balance between work and life.  The Group’s human touch is fully exemplified in the establishment of the Evergreen Club which holds gatherings on a regular basis to nurture personal bonds among retired staff members.

The Group also cares about the well-being of its employees.  Apart from organizing fitness classes, it also sponsors staff and encourages their family members to join them in a wide range of charity events to exercise for good.  These include the SHKP Vertical Run for Charity – Race to Hong Kong ICC, Sun Hung Kai Properties Hong Kong Cyclothon, Hong Chi Climbathon, the Society for the Promotion of Hospice Care’s Hike for Hospice, UNICEF Charity Run, WWF Charity Race, The Community Chest Corporate Challenge and other events to motivate them to build homes with heart and work for a better Hong Kong.

Talent is a company’s invaluable asset.  For this reason, SHKP places great emphasis on the long-term development of its employees and devotes considerable resources toward staff training.  In addition to running courses that cater to an employee’s professional needs, there is also the interdisciplinary training platform, the SHKP Quality Academy, to equip staff with work-related knowledge or the Group’s business operations.  Professionals from different fields, such as scholars from Harvard Business School, as well as business leaders and industry specialists are regularly invited to lead seminars to develop staff’s thinking skills and widen their horizons.

In the Building Homes with Heart spirit, SHKP believes that a healthy employer-employee relationship is grounded in a caring, friendly and positive work culture.  It is hoped that staff will grow with the company and work together to provide customers with quality products and services.
