Golden Recognition for Social Responsibility Contribution
Cosmopolitan Hotel Wan Chai Hong Kong Honored with its Second Caring Company Logo in 2011/12
Managed by Kosmopolito Hotels International
(Hong Kong, March 27, 2012) Following the first Caring Logo nominated by Christian Action in 2009/2010, Cosmopolitan Hotel Wan Chai Hong Kong, a hotel managed by Kosmopolito Hotels International, has recently been awarded again Caring Company Logo under the “Caring Company” Scheme 2011/12 launched by the Hong Kong Council of Social Services (HKCSS). This year nominated by the Hong Kong Sea School, the award is a good reflection of the hotels’ continuous and growing mission to make significant contribution to the society and to the people who are in need, apart from only making a business.
Business is keen. We fill it with love.
The hotel industry in Hong Kong has been blooming like never before. Constantly, there is an increasing number of hotels joining the pie and while it is comprehensive that all hotels are designing winning strategies to draw business, Cosmopolitan Hotel Wan Chai Hong Kong stands firm on its footsteps to make social contributions and hope to shed the community with care and love.
“Running a business isn’t just about the revenue. Social responsibility is also what a business should look into. I am pleased that being the general manager of the hotel has better positioned me to lead my team and give our helping hands for those in need, and together we will push our efforts to gain a maximized result,” said Anita Chan, General Manager. “Being awarded the Caring Company Logo is the recognition of our accumulated work, we thank HKCSS for such encouraging acknowledgement and we will continue to pile our path in caring for the community, employees as well as our environment.” Chan added.
Collaboration with Hong Kong Sea School
Cosmopolitan Hotel Wan Chai Hong Kong has been joining hands with Hong Kong Sea School since 2008 providing placement programs for their students. The placement training is held 2 times per year and each training period spreads over 4 to 5 weeks’ time and all of them will be allocated to Front Office, Housekeeping Department or other relevant departments for comprehensive trainings. The major aim of this collaboration is to help equip the students with real-life work experience and to polish them to move on to the next stage after graduation.
“The partnership with Cosmopolitan Hotel is catered for our senior boys and has exemplified the excellence of a joint effort to generate opportunities for them to learn, grow and share with others in the work battlefield,” says C.M. Chan, Careers Master of Hong Kong Sea School. “The hotel and sea school share the same vision and we work together to develop the students’ potentialities in varied areas of hospitality industry before leaving school.” Chan further stated.
Collaboration with Christian Action
Apart from taking care of the youngsters, Cosmopolitan Hotel has not neglected the minority of the community. We had worked hand in hand with Christian Action since in 2008 and 2009 to provide housekeeping training to people with low income. Hoping that with the skills they acquire here, it will be a great help for them to seek for a better job and thus improve their financial situation.
Keep the balls rolling
To ensure Cosmopolitan’s loving spirit keeps rolling and growing, the hotel will continue to undertake a number of social programs echoing our promise to care for the community and the environment. In the coming year like before, the hotel will continue implementing green policies to provide a healthy and eco- friendly place for both guests and staff. In addition to that, we will be collaborating with S.K.H. St. Christopher’s Home (聖基道兒童院) providing hotel familiarization program and our general manager will be personally giving a class on work interview skill hoping to better equip the less fortunate children to ace a job after school graduation. Since 2009, the hotel has been working closely with the Department of Engineering of Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (Tsing Yi), a member of Vocational Training Council. In these 4 years, we provide several training programs that would be a good benefit for youngsters in the society.
