HKBN announces new family-friendly perks

There is no work-life balance at HKBN (Hong Kong Broadband Network) , “life” always comes before “work” which is why the company  pitches LIFE-work priority.   Determined to live up to this value the company had announced the enhancement of a series benefits to help its talent enjoy greater flexibility and more time off from their duties.

Starting in September, HKBN will implement a number of LIFE-work enhancements for its talents in Hong Kong.  Easing the pressure on working parents to take care of their new-born child, the company will provide 16 weeks of full-pay maternity leave for working mothers.

Fathers are also beneficiary of the new policies,  soon-to-be fathers are entitled to 14 days of paternity leave which are also fully paid.

Additionally, for talents set on tying the knot, HKBN is offering 5 days of paid marriage leave to both contract and full time talent.

Other enhanced benefits include upgrading the once-a-month early-off Friday (allowing to leave 2 hours earlier), by letting talents to leave work after 12:30pm.

All combined, these new initiatives will give HKBN talents ample opportunities to savour life’s precious moments with friends and family.

“It is quite rare for companies from Hong Kong to invest so heavily towards work-life balance. At HKBN, we believe that personal and family well-being comes before work, and happy Talents will be motivated to deliver outstanding results. The continued growth and development of HKBN proves that a determined focus on LIFE-work Priority can have considerable impact. We hope we will inspire other Hong Kong companies to follow, and make our city a better place to live.” said HKBN CEO and co-owner, William Yeung.
