Good MPF Employer
(HONG KONG, Sep. 26, 2017) On September 26th, 2017, the 2016-2017 awarding ceremony of the Good MPF Employer Award, held by the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority (“MPFA”) with firm support from some of the most representative employer associations, labor unions and professional body including The Chinese General Chamber of Commerce Hong Kong, The Chinese Manufacturers’ Association of Hong Kong, Federation of Hong Kong Industries, among others, was held at Hong Kong International Trade & Exhibition Centre (“HITEC”). With its consistent people-oriented principle and employee-focus policy, HL&C Employment Agency Ltd. (hereinafter referred to shortly as HL&C), an agency providing professional employment services for Philippine, Indonesian and Thai helpers with over 25 years of practical experience, is honored as a Good MPF Employer and presented with e-Contribution Award. HL&C is one of the few companies that receive the two awards at the same time, which definitely is an acknowledgement on HL&C’s employee focus and policy and pursues its favorable practice to all walks of life.
Employee Focus of HL&C
“Living a happy and healthy life” derives from a wisdom from Musical Records in the Book of Rites, which contains a profound philosophy that only when we perceive residents’ feelings by heart and follow the cozy and comfortable movement then can we provide services that bring to residents delight and health. While rendering first-rate services to the vast numbers of Hong Kong residents, HL&C has never overlooked its employees either, a part of the Hong Kong residents as well, whose delight and health HL&C will never slacken its efforts on.
HL&C firmly believes that employees will always be the company’s most valuable treasure, and that it can be hard to sustain the company’s growth without the unremitting efforts made by any one of our employees. The mandatory provident fund system serves as not a compulsory responsibility that HL&C undertakes for its employees, but also a solemn promise that HL&C keeps to its employees, reflecting HL&C’s efforts in further enhancing the retirement protection of our employees.
Being honored as a Good MPF Employer implies recognition of HL&C from the society as exemplary in enhancing the retirement benefits of employees, and at the same time impels HL&C to do even better in the future. HL&C not only complies with MPF legislation but also provide to employees with extra retirement protection arrangements, defending the legitimate rights and interests of employees in real earnest, as is reflected in the employee-focus actions: while investing in MPF for employees, we are also arranging MPF-related lectures, providing relevant information on the invested MPF and assisting in integrating MPF accounts.
On top of the MPF-related concerns, HL&C’s employee focus principle can be discovered in many other ways:
- HL&C has established an Employee Care Committee showing solicitude for employees’ work and life, which aims to help find a balance between the two.
- HL&C encourages and supports employees to attend skill training programs of various kinds, and lays stress on employees’ skill enhancement and value appreciation.
- HL&C organizes employees to join public services where their values can be embodied.
- HL&C involves employees in the Smoking Cessation Program in Workplace held by The Lok Sin Tong Benevolent Society and arranges those employees who smoke to attend relevant lectures for them to clearly see the harm smoking does to physical health. This involvement demonstrates HL&C’s concern of employees’ health conditions, and advocates that health condition be valued both in workplace and daily lives. HL&C was awarded the Smoke-free Company Recognition 2015/16.
- In honor of HL&C’s various caring policies and actions, HL&C was awarded by the Home Affairs Bureau with the “Family-friendly Employers 2015/16 Award” and “Awards for Breastfeeding Support 2015/16”, implying that HL&C has been continuously caring for its employees.
[Good MPF Employer] Award
As one of the pillars for retirement protection in Hong Kong, the Mandatory Provident Fund (“MPF”) System helps the working population save for their retirement through regular contributions made by both employers and employees. Employers, in particular, play an important role. Their compliance with MPF legislation is crucial to the integrity of the System, and to ensuring that the interests of their employees are protected.
The Good MPF Employer Award 2016-2017, held by the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority (“MPFA”) with firm support from The Chinese General Chamber of Commerce Hong Kong, The Chinese Manufacturers’ Association of Hong Kong, Federation of Hong Kong Industries, among other organizations, aims to not only recognize employers who place a high value on their employees’ retirement needs, but also cultivate employers’ responsibility under the law and encourage employers’ efforts to further enhance the retirement protection of their employees.
HL&C will proceed with its general development principle of employees growing in step with the company. HL&C will strive to foster a more favorable corporate culture and develop a more people-oriented management mode, providing employees with a broader platform where they can shine to achieve a win-win outcome. In this regard, each and every one of the separate individual can unite as one to render better services to our customers and also to make HL&C’s own contributions to build an even-better “Good MPF Employer”. While investing in MPF for employees, HL&C effectively safeguards the legitimate rights and interests of employees and undertakes its due social responsibility.
