NWS Holdings organises theme park outing to promote family-friendly practices

(17 September 2013, Hong Kong) NWS Holdings Limited (“NWS Holdings” or the “Group”; Hong Kong stock code: 659) held the NWS Adventure Day 2013 earlier this month with a record-breaking number of participants. Over 6,700 staff members and their families enjoyed a day out at Hong Kong Disneyland. Following an entertaining opening ceremony, the participants joined the Festival of the Lion King show as well as other exciting attractions during the exclusive session.

The event was kicked off by Patrick Lam and William Doo Jr, Executive Directors of NWS Holdings, together with representatives of the Group’s member companies. Participants enjoyed special offers, including meals and shopping discounts, as well as souvenirs and a lucky draw.

NWS Holdings believes that human capital is its most valuable asset and a key factor to its business success. The Group is dedicated to providing a comprehensive recruitment and training policy in order to retain talent. It is also committed to fostering a caring and family-friendly environment for its staff members. As part of the celebration of the 10th anniversary of its First Trading Day this year, the Group organised new programmes to share this spirit with its staff, including a family movie day and departmental celebrations for the Corporate Office. As part of its effort to promote work-life balance, the Group organises regular leisure and recreational activities and has adopted measures including “five-day week”, a dress casual policy and birthday leave. In 2012, the Group launched the NWS Scholarships for Employees’ Children programme to extend care and support to employees’ next generation.
