NWS Holdings garners Best Practice Award in Employee Care

(18 November 2013, Hong Kong) NWS Holdings Limited (“NWS Holdings” or “the Group”; Hong Kong stock code: 659) believes that people are the Group’s greatest asset and cares for its 26,000 staff through a comprehensive human resources strategy. The Group today received the Best Practice Award 2013 in the “Employee Care” category in recognition of its unwavering efforts in fostering a caring and family-friendly working environment for its employees.

NWS Holdings has proactively implemented different pioneering measures, including paternity leave, for its employees. The NWS Scholarships for Employees’ Children Scheme was launched last year to encourage and support the next generation’s education. The Group also provides various breaks to meet the needs of staff members, such as examination leave and birthday leave.

This year the Group has implemented several new family-friendly initiatives, including inviting corporate staff members and their families to join the Staff and Family Movie Day. The NWS Adventure Day was also held, with a recording breaking of 6,700 staff members and their families enjoying a day out at the Hong Kong Disneyland.

To promote the concept of healthy living, an annual Corporate Outing was held last Friday (15 November) where corporate staff members enjoyed the hiking and scenery of the Dragon’s Back at Shek O, followed by seafood dinner. The Group also distributes health snacks and fruit to staff on a regular basis.

Elina Lam, General Manager – Human Resources of NWS Holdings, said, “The Group has implemented various staff-care and family-friendly measures which are well received by our staff and their families. As always, we will continue the effort to build a pleasant working environment and enrich our human assets.”

Organised by the Best Practice Management Group, the Best Practice Awards aim to recognise organisations that have achieved business success through coherent and strategic best practice. NWS Holdings has previously won the Best Practice Awards in three different categories between 2009 and 2011.
