Continuing to Deliver Excellence for our Employees

We believe that our employees receive competitive remuneration packages with a variety of benefits. In Hong Kong, these include medical care, retirement schemes and discretionary bonuses, while in the Chinese mainland, in addition to social insurance and housing funds, they are provided with medical care and discretionary bonuses.

Swire Properties strives to ensure that every employee receives regular, objective, fair, and open assessments of their performance and is rewarded accordingly with merit-based incentives. We have a Performance and Development Review (“PDR”) system in place to streamline our assessment processes and ensure consistency across the Company.

We have asked our office employees to align their annual performance goals with each SD Pillar. This year, we identified a job evaluation platform which will aid in the development of a Swire Properties Rewards Philosophy – ensuring that our employees continue to receive fair pay internally and a competitive salary within the industry. Next, we will conduct a compensation and benefits review exercise. This will start in Hong Kong and then be expanded to our Chinese mainland and Hotels portfolios.

In 2020, we launched a new employer branding communication strategy to ensure that we continue to attract and retain talent, and introduced new targets relating to employer branding, which will support our long-term plan of being identified as a “preferred employer” by 2030.

In 2020, we also introduced a blended learning approach to onboarding interns and trainees. While traditional in-person visits to our portfolios took place, half of the orientation was conducted online via our internal platform. New joiners could access the platform at any time to familiarise themselves with the Company by reading articles, completing quizzes and watching videos of department representatives sharing their experiences. This approach cut down on the manpower involved in the orientation process, and also serves as a blueprint for future recruits regardless of their onboarding date or location.

Swire Properties Named Most Attractive Employer in Hong Kong

We were named the Most Attractive Employer in the Randstad Hong Kong Employer Brand Research 2020. We have either won or placed in the top three of the Randstad Employer Brand Awards for five consecutive years. This year, 75 of Hong Kong’s largest companies, based on workforce size, competed in these awards, the results of which were determined by the opinions of thousands of locally based employees and job seekers. We were rated positively by the voters on several aspects, including corporate financial health, corporate reputation and job security.

Anna Thompson, Director, Human Resources at Swire Properties, expressed the Company’s gratitude, saying, “Ultimately, it’s our people who will help bring our vision of building vibrant communities to life...flexibility, agility, understanding and solidarity, these concepts have inspired our policies and allowed us to meet challenges such as COVID-19 head on and come out stronger and more united than ever.”

New Online Onboarding Platform

This year, we launched an online onboarding platform to enhance the existing onboarding process by giving new joiners access to important company information and learn about our core values and culture before commencing work. New joiners can access the platform at any time, including from their mobile phones, creating the added benefit of saving a significant amount of paper. The platform was launched in March for office workers and in September for frontline new joiners.
