15 June, 2020 (Hong Kong SAR, China) – Wharf Hotels is honoured to have been recognised as one of the city’s Caring Company’s for 2019 – 2020, by The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS).
A non-governmental social service organisation based in Hong Kong that promotes social responsibility and good corporate citizenship, the HKCSS has established its Caring Company Scheme for over 17 years, accrediting over 3,800 enterprises and organisations in Hong Kong for their efforts in incorporating social concerns and environmental protection in their business operations.
Beyond providing service excellence, Wharf Hotels actively gives back to the community by partnering with local service organisations in community projects, including elderly home care visits, fundraiser activities and donations to local community centres such as the Community Chest’s Swim for Millions.
The Hong Kong based hotel group overseeing the luxury collection of Niccolo Hotels as well as the deluxe Marco Polo Hotels across Asia, prides itself on Associate well-being and care, regularly offering wellness and leisure activities for its colleagues to relieve stress and enhance employee engagement. Celebration occasions including annual dinners and festive events are held to bond and celebrate success. Yoga sessions and hiking outings strengthen the importance of physical and mental health for all staff.
Dedicated to operate in an environmentally responsible manner, all materials used for meetings are sustainable; from recycled paper to refillable markers and re-usable pencils. No straws or post-its are used to reduce waste that could negatively impact the environment.
Ms Juliette Lim, Vice President Human Resources of Wharf Hotels says, “We are delighted to receive such an honourable achievement. Wharf Hotels continues to emphasise the significance of corporate citizenship and our Associates’ wellbeing, empowering them to perform their best at work and stretch for success.”
