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.

Each DSD staff member received about 31.6 hours of training on average in 2013-14. The figure is far higher than the territory-wide average of 18.5 hours according to Hong Kong Institute of Human Resource Management’s “2013 Training and Development Needs Survey”.
