We believe that training is paramount for our staff to provide quality services to meet the growing demands and public concerns on sustainability. In 2013-14, we have organised a total of 584 training courses for our staff, in the form of induction courses, in-house training, duty visits, overseas conferences, as well as seminars and workshops.
Staff Recreational Activities
Our staff has established a Staff Club to plan and organise various recreational activities for DSD colleagues. Thanks to Staff Club’s enormous contributions, we have launched a wide range of activities to strengthen the staff relationship in the year.
Dragon Boat Race
In 2013, our Dragon Boat Team actively participated in a number of races. With an aim to strive for championship, the Team has carried out series of arduous practices throughout the year. Such active participation has not only enhanced the team spirit amongst staff members, but also served as a good way to keep fit and healthy.
Hong Kong Marathon 2014
About 100 DSD staff members of all levels and their relatives joined the Hong Kong Marathon 2014. The total number of participants added up to 400 when taking into account our partners including consultants and contractors. The encouragement and support for each other helped keep up the high morale throughout the whole run.
Apart from participating in the Hong Kong Marathon and dragon boat races, our Staff Club has also arranged a wide range of favourable sports competitions, including tournaments of football, basketball, table-tennis, squash, snooker, golf, tennis, badminton, bowling and darts.
Outdoor Activities and Interest Classes
Various outdoor activities and interest classes have been arranged for our staff. These included hiking, practice sessions for Tai Chi, certificate course in basic photography, seminars on green farming and a red wine tasting workshop for beginners.
Our Staff Club organised the Annual Dinner and delivered a variety of programmes, including prize presentation for sports competitions, group games and staff performance. All our colleagues had an enjoyable night.
Over 500 colleagues and guests joined DSD’s Christmas Party 2013. Apart from singing hymns, there were group games to challenge colleagues’ knowledge about DSD’s history and understanding of our projects. Needless to say, the lucky draw was one of the most exciting moments of the Party.
