- "This honour motivates us to increase our collaboration with various stakeholders for the betterment of Hong Kong society"
HONG KONG, March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Caring Company Award 2016/17 has been conferred on DYXnet Group by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS), a federation of non-governmental agencies.
Greater China's leading carrier-neutral network service provider holds a solid track record in serving the community, supporting charitable and environmental causes and creating a family-friendly work culture.
The Caring Company Scheme applauds and rewards organisations that help develop a more cohesive society by translating a keen sense of corporate social responsibility into positive action.
DYXnet Group Founder and CEO Lap Man said: "We are thrilled to attain Caring Company status, especially as sound corporate citizenship is one of our most important values. This honour motivates us to actually increase our efforts when collaborating with various stakeholders for the overall betterment of Hong Kong society."
The company's charity work has ranged from raising funds by selling flags and taking part in walkathon events through to assisting low-income families and supporting non-governmental organisations in alleviating poverty.
All this has taken place in parallel with efforts to further environmental ambitions in areas such as reducing use of paper and recycling it wherever possible.
DYXnet Group has also become an employer-of-choice, thanks to a focus on employees' career development and overall well-being. In fact, the company has cultivated a culture of togetherness throughout the workforce and a wholesome office style that keeps stress at bay.
For example, colleagues knock-off early once a month for "Happy Friday", so they can enjoy quality time playing games and dining together. In addition, a social club organises leisure events such as fitness sessions, bowling tournaments, cookery classes and barbecue gatherings.
Pro-family initiatives include a five-day week, compassionate and paternity leave, as well as a fun day for families, while the workplace features 120-degree workstations served by natural light, plus ergonomic desks beneficial to posture. A big hit among colleagues is a recreational area in the Hong Kong office that sports fully-automated darts and mini-table tennis facilities, along with PlayStation 4 fun and a therapeutic massage chair.
The coveted accolade was presented to DYXnet Group on March 10 at the Caring Company Partnership Expo 2017, where more than 3,000 awardees networked with 120-plus exhibitors from the fields of community service, social enterprise and sustainability.
The Hong Kong Council of Social Service is a federation of non-governmental agencies established in 1947 to co-ordinate social welfare work after the Second World War. After gaining statutory body status in 1951, the HKCSS began a partnership with the Hong Kong Government and now represents more than 450 agency members running 3,000 welfare units.
