Caring for Our Staff
Staff Recreational Activities
To facilitate communication among staff from different divisions, and promote work-life balance, our Staff Club organises a wide range of recreational activities periodically.
Hong Kong Marathon 2018
In 2018, approximately 30 staff members and their relatives took part in the race. Our consultants, contractors and other partners were also invited to join the race, making up a strong team of 83. During the race, runners cheered for each other, bringing team spirit into full play.
Dragon Boat Race
Since its establishment, the DSD dragon boat team has been training regularly and actively participating in various dragon boat races over the years. We hope these activities can help our staff maintain good health and establish stronger group cohesiveness.
To promote colleagues' physical and mental wellness, in addition to joining marathon and dragon boat races, our Staff Club actively participates in sports activities held by other organisations and organised inter-departmental sports tournaments for colleagues to unleash their potentials. The sports include football, basketball, table tennis, squash, snooker, tennis, badminton, bowling and darts, etc.
Outdoor Activities and Interest Classes
Our staff have a wide variety of interests, ranging from cooking to photography. In this connection, our Staff Club organised various outdoor activities and interest classes, including local tours, cycling trips, hiking, green seminars, cooking classes, photography technique classes and crystal bead accessories design classes, etc.
The DSD Staff Club Annual Dinner was successfully held in May 2017, receiving around 300 guests and colleagues. Adding icing on the prize presentation for sports competitions, lucky draw and Q&A session, the Director and Deputy Director of DSD performed with the Revival, DSD Band. It was a happy and memorable evening for all.
Over 460 colleagues and guests joined the DSD Christmas Party 2017 to celebrate the festive season. Christmas carols by colleagues and lucky draw brought more fun and joy.
We value staff feedback greatly. To enhance exchanges between the management and frontline staff, DSD introduced the Goodwill Visit Programme in June 2013. The Director and Deputy Director of Drainage Services as well as other directorate staff pay visits to frontline staff at their workplace annually, listening to their concerns and deepening ties with them. In 2017-18, the management made a total of 9 goodwill visits to communicate with frontline staff at 12 operational sites.
