Leighton Asia’s business in Hong Kong has been recognised as a ‘Caring Company’ by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service in recognition of their effort in spreading care to our employees, the community and environment over the past years.
Lighting up young minds
Leighton Asia has been actively mentoring local youths in a bid to pass on our international experience and wealth of expertise, and attract local talent to join the construction industry.
In 2020, mentor from Leighton Asia supported one of the student teams in the SciTech Challenge, which is organised by the Construction Industry Council and the Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute, to develop an innovative sensor product that can improve safety on construction sites.
Fighting the virus together
During the COVID-19 pandemic, beside complying with the guidelines given by local authorities, the team has gone further miles by utilising digital technologies to enhance their management systems to ensure the safety and health of our people. The use of in-house developed applications has successfully optimised the inspection processes, enabling us to response promptly under the dynamic pandemic.
The team is also mindful of the community in which we operate and have liaised with local charities to spread our care to those in need during this challenging time.
