Chapter 5: Stakeholder Engagement 第五章: 持份者參與

As a socially responsible organization, we are keen to foster a harmonious culture and sustainable future with our stakeholders through organizing a variety of campus outreach activities

理大是一間重視社會責任的機構,我們經常舉辦各類校園外展活動,與持份者一同推動和諧文化及可持續發展。

 

Caring Our Staff 關顧員工

As key driving force of our sustainable development, besides directly contributing to campus initiatives, our staff can also assist in knowledge transferring to students and the public. Therefore, the University strives to provide favourable environment and opportunities to facilitate career advancement.

員工是我們可持續發展進程的中流砥柱,他們不但可直接為校園內的各類事項出力,還可以協助理大將相關的重要知識傳遞到學生和公眾。我們明白員工的可貴,因此悉力創造優越的環境及提供多種機會,扶助他們在教學、科研等領域的發展。

 

Staff Engagement 員工參與

PolyU is a caring employer for all our employees, offering equal opportunity to qualified and suitable persons. We commit to establishing and implementing an effective system and mechanism to handle staff grievances and appeals in a fair and reasonable manner.

理大對每位員工也關心愛護,為合資格人員提供平等機會。我們矢志設立及推行完善的系統與體制,確保可公平合理地處理員工的不滿和申訴。

To facilitate communication between staff and management and ensure the quality of staff life, two staff associations have been established. Polytechnic University Staff Association (PUSA) is a registered trade union for full-time staff to discuss and negotiate with the management on issues related to staff benefits and terms of services. To raise environmental and socio-political awareness among staff, PUSA has also collaborated with other units in PolyU or organizations to arrange activities such as Used-items Collection Campaign to collect used items from staff and students and then sold to the needy at very low prices. Another staff association, PolyU Staff Club, has organised various activities including recreational, social and sports activities for their members to promote social interaction within PolyU as well as between PolyU and the community.

為促進員工與管理層間的溝通,以及確保員工生活的質素,本校特別組成兩個員工組織。香港理工大學教職員協會(PUSA) 是全職人員的註冊工會,代表僱員與管理層商議關於員工福利和服務條件的事宜。為提高員工的環保及社會政治意識,PUSA 經常聯同理大其他單位或機構協辦活動,例如舉行「二手物品回收 運動」收集職員及學生的舊物品,以極低廉的價格轉售給貧困人士。另一個員工組織是香港理工大學職員會所。該會籌辦的會員活動頗多元化,包括康樂、社交聯誼及運動,致力促進理大人員之間和理大與社會各界的社交聯繫。

Continual entrepreneurial support would be provided through mentorship programme with entrepreneurs, networking with business sectors, etc.

理大微型基金計劃於2011 年設立,專門提供啟動資金和獎金資助有利於建造可持續發展社會的優良商業計劃及創新意念。本計劃讓學生和年青畢業生有機會在社會實踐其商業構想,獲得真實的營商體驗。2011 年5 位得獎者成功獲不同計劃資助,共籌得約200 萬港元資金創業,並可通過包括「理大創業師友計劃」 和商界人脈網絡等活動持續獲得創業支援。

In October 2011, PolyU organized the “Beyond Entrepreneurship Forum: How to develop an innovation- driven venture”. This forum provided a platform to connect the experience and insight of local and overseas young entrepreneurs. With an aim to encourage the youngsters to set up innovative ventures with high sustainable values and impacts as well as boosting entrepreneurial culture in Hong Kong, so that the business of youngsters can be beneficial to the society. The forum attracted more than 280 local and overseas young entrepreneurs and founders of startup companies.

Alumni Activities 校友活動

In November 2011, Federation of PolyU Alumni Associations and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department jointly organized the seventh annual planting event. The event promoted environmental protection and greening in the community, and raised funds for The Community Chest of Hong Kong. About 1,200 PolyU alumni, their families and friends joined the event. More than 5,000 shrubs and saplings were planted in Jordan Valley Park.

2011年11月,理大校友會聯會和康樂及文化事務署第七次聯合舉辦一年一度的植樹活動,一起推廣環保及社區綠化之餘也為香港公益金籌募善款。約1,200名理大校友和家人及親友齊來參與,在佐敦谷公園種植5,000多株灌木及樹苗。

With the support of the Tai Po Environmental Association, more greening activities were included in the planting event, such as cartoons and video, “Environmental Family Handicraft Workshop”, booth showing inventions from PolyU, and games about recycling and LOHAS cleaning DIY. Cartoon Greening Ambassadors were recruited to promote energy saving, healthy eating and butterfly conservation. These activities helped teaching the next generation about environmental protection and the importance of sustainability.

是次植樹得蒙大埔環保會支持,加插多項綠化活動,例如播放動畫和視頻、環保家庭手工藝工作坊、理大 發明展攤、回收再造及樂活清潔自己動手做遊戲。大會請來動畫綠化大使宣傳節約能源、健康飲食和蝴蝶保育,透過這些活動向下一代灌輸環保知識及可持續發展的重要。

 

Involvement in the Community 投入社區

The “PolyU Serves” Community Service Campaign was launched in 2012 to further engage PolyU students from various disciplines to organize sustainable projects to serve the community. Over 75 non- governmental organizations were invited to become PolyU partners for this important initiative commemorating PolyU’s 75th anniversary celebration. With this new campaign, PolyU can secure more sponsorship and support from different sectors of society for developing and launching more new initiatives in the future. By launching the new “PolyU Serves” Community Service Campaign alongside the introduction of credit-bearing “service-learning” subject, it was expected that 3,000 PolyU students would participate in around 70 projects per year in the next few years.

2012年開展的「理有心」社會服務計劃旨在動員各學術領域的理大學生推行可持續發展項目為社會服務。我們邀請逾75 間非政府機構擔任理大夥伴,參與這項為慶祝建校75 周年而推行的重要計劃。透過這套新 計劃,我們亦希望獲得社會各界的贊助和支持,以更好地在將來發展及推展新計劃。隨着推行「理有心」 社會服務計劃與將「服務學習」納入學分課程互相配合,估計未來數年每年約有3,000 名理大學生參與約70 個服務項目。

Supporting the international sport occasion, the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon, PolyU has sent a running team since 2009. In 2011, more than 3,300 runners in PolyU Running Team participated in the event and formed the biggest team ever for the event. In February 2012, we have increased to 3,600 runners, joining the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon together with hundreds of cheering team members and volunteers from PolyU. PolyU was an active participant, for every 20 runners, one was from PolyU. By sending forth the largest single team, PolyU won the Most Supportive Group Award Top Prize for the third consecutive year and set a new record in the event.

理大一直以來熱心支持國際體育盛事「渣打香港馬拉松」,自2009年至今每年派隊參賽。2011年,理大的賽隊人強馬壯,成員超過3,300 人,規模打破參與這項慈善賽歷來的紀錄。2012年2月,我們增加到 3,600位理大跑手、再加上數百名啦啦隊員和義工浩浩蕩蕩出戰渣打香港馬拉松,全場每20名跑手中便有一名來自理大。理大憑着這支陣容鼎盛的最強大團隊,連續第三年贏得「最鼎力支持大獎」冠軍,並創下新紀錄。

PolyU provided different support for the runners. Before the marathon running, trainings such as seminars and scheduled practice were organized. Free physiotherapy service was provided by the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences to PolyU runners on the day of the event.

理大在多方面支援跑手,賽前先後舉辦多次研討會和安排定期訓練,此外康復治療科學系亦於比賽當天為理大跑手提供免費物理治療服務。
