The Hong Kong Police Force won the "Outstanding Family-Friendly Employment Practices" Award on December 8 at an award presentation ceremony for the 2017/18 Family-Friendly Employers Award Scheme. The Force was the first government department to win the honour.
The award scheme was jointly organised by the Home Affairs Bureau and the Family Council. The number of enrolments for the scheme reached a record high this year, with the participation of more than 3 500 companies, organisations and government bureaux and departments.
The Force and nine other companies and organisations received the newly added "Outstanding Family-Friendly Employment Practices" Award. As an employer with over 34 000 employees, the Force has adopted a people-oriented management approach and implemented a range of family-friendly practices.
