Hong Yip’s Mentorship Program Launch

Hong Yip is always committed in nurturing future talents and has supported the “Youth Upward Mobility Mentorship Program” (YUM Program) of The Hong Kong Church Network for the Poor for many years by offering young people an alternative apart from further education and providing them training, counselling and financial assistance for education. A kick-off event was organized recently for over 30 new recruits who joined the Mentorship Program this year. Participated mentees will receive guidance and support from mentors through this program to enhance their interpersonal skills and develop habit of continuous learning, so as to enhance their competitiveness. Mentors will also help them build up their self-awareness and positive values in life, identify their goal and direction, and motivate their upward mobility.

During the event, Mr. Alkin Kwong, Chairman and Chief Executive of Hong Yip, welcomed the team to join the Hong Yip family, shared with them the corporate values of Sun Hung Kai Properties and Hong Yip, which include “Building Homes with Heart”, Teamwork, Customer First, Continuous Improvement and the concept of “Quality, Speed, Efficiency”, and explained to them the importance of having a life-long mentor. He encouraged the young people to seize every opportunity to learn and equip themselves for a better planning in life. Last but not least he sent his warm blessings to everyone and wished each of them success and continued growth in work.

Hong Yip has been encouraging young people since 2017 to join the YUM Program, which does not only provide job training for trainees to acquire job skills and soft skills at work, but also subsidizes them to further study courses of related industries. Trainees can also build up their positive values in life with the guidance from mentors and pave their way for their better future.

During the kick-off event of the Mentorship Program, Mr. Alkin Kwong, Chairman and Chief Executive of Hong Yip Service Company Limited, encouraged the new recruits to develop the culture of life-long learning, identify their direction and develop their careers in the long run.
