Family Friendly Company

Nobody on his deathbed ever said “I wish I’d spent more time in the office.” Should career success be no more than a guilty pleasure, pursued at the expense of domestic happiness, or is there a balance between work and play? We think so. And so does our administration. The Family Council is promoting the adoption of family friendly policies through an award scheme. We're proud to announce that we have received a Distinguished Family-Friendly Employers Award in both 2011 and in 2014 for ‘…demonstrating impressive practices in the implementation of family-friendly employment policies and practices and in the promotion of family core values.’

Community Chest

For more than twenty years Richards Basmajian have supported a number of local charities, in particular the Hong Kong Community Chest. Every year, gifts received from our vendors, contractors and service providers are auctioned to the staff at our annual Chinese New Year luncheon and the money raised is matched by the Company, dollar-for-dollar, and donated to the Chest. Since we began this tradition in 1991, money raised has been donated to support needy families, children, the elderly and other deserving groups locally with medical and rehabilitation services. We have also provided support to global charities in crisis situations worldwide.

The Pandas

Emerging from the Operation Breakthrough initiative set up by the Hong Kong Police, The Pandas are a new rugby team, developed to encourage a greater sense of belonging through participation in team sports. The team was launched in 2011 with players mainly from the Operation Breakthrough scheme in Tin Shui Wai, in the New Territories, and Richards Basmajian have been one of their key sponsors from the outset. Their inaugural season was a massive success – they won every game played - and the team has now advanced to the Premiership A division where the competition is somewhat tougher. The Club now has four playing teams.
