Through a wide range of initiatives to enhance employee and environmental wellness, Zung Fu promises to create exceptional journeys for all.
Zung Fu, a member of the Jardine Matheson Group, is the exclusive retailer of Mercedes-Benz in Hong Kong and Macau. It promises to create exceptional journeys not only for its customers and partners, but equally, for its employees and the environment.
Employee wellbeing has always been Zung Fu’s top priority. “Being an employer is similar to parenting,” says Kandy Mak, Head of Human Resources. “We feel obliged to help our employees grow and be healthy as that is the right thing to do, not just because of the financial returns.”
‘Key2Wellness’ is Zung Fu’s flagship programme to support employees’ wellness holistically. Flexible working arrangements, compassionate leave policy to allow colleagues to meet family members overseas, complimentary body checkups and professional doctor consultation advice before COVID-19 vaccination, high-standard sanitising procedures, and a sufficient supply of protective equipment at the workplace, are among the measures Zung Fu launched to build a safe working environment throughout the pandemic.
On top of promoting good physical health, mental health is also of great significance to the company. As such, Zung Fu partnered with different parties to offer a 24-hour care hotline, online courses and training, mental health talks and live webinars to help build mental resilience across the workforce.
In rounding up the wellness story, diversity and inclusion (D&I) are essential in helping all employees bring their best selves to work.
This is why Zung Fu’s Chai Wan brand centre features a range of newly designed facilities, such as a gym room, a breastfeeding room, and disabled-friendly toilets to cater to different employees’ needs. The company also celebrated International Women’s Day to appreciate female staff’s contribution as well as to promote awareness of gender equality.
Zung Fu is also committed to help build a cleaner, greener and more positive future by 2030. To achieve this, the company has developed a three-pronged strategy that brings employee development, stakeholder engagement, and resource management together.
To realise the company’s resource management goals, Zung Fu has installed over 500 solar panels on its rooftops and adopted the BMS system to reduce electricity usage for air-conditioning. Furthermore, the company deploys recycling and upcycling machines, and actively recycles water for cleaning purposes.
All these efforts have helped Zung Fu make remarkable achievements in the fields of business, employee excellence, and ESG. Most recently, the company walked away with four gold awards and was crowned the Grand Winner at the inaugural Employee Experience Awards 2022 Hong Kong, organised by Human Resources Online.
