On September 19th, Harmony was host to six members of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Delegation for the duty visit to Ontario. Ontario was chosen for the visit because of the similarities in the labour laws and the number of manufacturing establishments in the province. The purpose of their visit to Harmony was to gain insight into how SME’s work with employees beyond the minimum government requirements to create a harmonious work environment. They were interested in understanding how we communicate with employees regarding wages and benefits, vacations, health & safety issues, equipment upgrades, staffing requirements. They acknowledged our success because of the length of time Harmony has been in business and the number of long term employees that continue with the company. We were happy to share our open and ongoing communication methods and demonstrated by taking the delegates on a tour of our plant and introducing our employees.
The members of the delegation shared information about labour relations in Hong Kong. Hong Kong has government regulated labour laws that cover minimum wage, statutory holidays, and vacation entitlement, health & safety regulations among other things. Surprisingly, the regulations and minimum standards are very similar to Ontario laws.
While the purpose of the meeting was to enlighten and inform our guests, we learned much about the culture and working environment in Hong Kong.
