- About Us
When the social responsibility efforts of businesses become part of company culture, the employees take notice. As an organization that takes the society to the bottom of our hearts, our objectives are to put effort in place to benefit society and determined to be leading the charge in making the world a better place.
For the past year, we have put our hearts into donation of time, money or resources to charities and organizations at local, national or international levels. These donations can be directed to a variety of worthy causes. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Pok Oi Hospital, GALAX and the hospital have held the GALAX.POK OI 100th Anniversary Hong Kong Esports Cup together for charity donation. To promote Esports, we have teamed up with ViuTV for a special broadcasting TV show for the competition. The TV show was divided into two parts: reality show and charity live E-sports concert, in an attempt to show the audiences the fun in Esports and help youngsters to develop an accurate attitude in participation of gaming. The event has integrated Esports, charity, education and entertainment, exhibiting the prospect and potential of Esports. We hope to contribute in the local IT industry and at the same time expand the horizon for Hong Kong’s youngsters with more possibilities. Apart from that, GALAX has donated and sponsored various medical services of Pok Oi, such as medical truck.
We have also participated in The Community’s Chest’s Walk for Millions every year in raising funds on behalf of over 160 local member agencies in six major areas of services: children & youth, elderly, family & child welfare, medical & health, rehabilitation & aftercare, and community development, making every effort to contribute to a better Hong Kong.
It also enhances teamwork among our employees through corporate volunteering. Apart from building a better relationship in the workplace, it strengthens the bond by working hand in hand in matters of projects and activities outside the office. Our employees appreciate each other better especially on talents that are not displayed in the workplace. Engaging the employees in these activities boosts our employees’ work ethics and performance. These activities and social responsibility creates an impact on our employees’ attitude and level of awareness. It enhances their sense of direction, integrity, and cultivates positive perception about their employer and about themselves. We put our primary focus on ethics by providing fair labor practices for our employees as well as the employees of their suppliers. Good and fair business practices for our employees include equal pay for equal work and living wage compensation initiatives. Ethical labor practices for suppliers include the use of products that have been certified as meeting fair trade standards.
Since 2017, GALAX has been consecutively awarded the Caring Company logo by The Hong Kong Council of Social Service that in 2022, GALAX is even awarded with a 5 Years Plus Caring Company Logo for its continuous commitment in promoting good corporate citizenship and creating a better community. As of 2023, GALAX has already been awarded with the Caring Company Certificate for 6 consecutive years. As the Caring Company Scheme (the Scheme) aims at helping strengthening communication between corporations and social services organizations, this will create rooms for working together to develop cross-sector projects that focus on the needs of the community.
On top of that, GALAX is also a member of Good Employer Charter since 2018, where the objective is to continuously encourage employers of different trades and scale (including small and medium enterprises) to adopt employee-oriented and progressive good human resource management practices. Employers should also formulate family-friendly employment policies by assessing different family responsibilities borne by their employees and help them fulfilling their work and family needs simultaneously to create a family-friendly harmonious workplace.
