Staff Engagement

Staff with commitment is essential to maintain our professional excellence and work productivity. We can never deliver quality services to the society without talents who are enthusiastic and dedicated in their works. Therefore, we strive to create the most inclusive, open and participatory working environment for our staff to realise and maximise their potential. We also proactively engage our staff to understand their views and concerns to cater for their needs.

Staff Motivation Scheme

The Scheme aspires to enhance our productivity and to improve the service quality and performance of our staff. Since 1993, we have organised a wide variety on initiatives to reinforce staff's awareness on our departmental performance pledges, meanwhile, to facilitate the team building among staff members.

During the year, we organised the following activities under the Staff Motivation Scheme:

  • Schematic Architectural Design Idea Competition for the Proposed Cycle Track between Serenada Cove and Ting Kau

    Our in-house architects have participated in the competition to produce architectural and landscape designs for a cycle track. The ideas generated will facilitate Civil Engineering and Development Department in developing a final design that is distinguished recreational facility that is well-blended with the environment in the vicinity.

  • My Favourite Knowledge Hub

    As a staff award scheme, "My Favourite Knowledge Hub" has been organised for the Knowledge Management Managers to present their individual knowledge hub to encourage experience sharing between different projects. Our colleagues have also actively participated in the online voting to select their most favourite hubs, which competes in the criteria of "Aesthetic", "Innovative", "Richness", "User-friendliness" and "Presentation".
