"Eight days leave per month" to create a precedent for retailing industry
Most of the employees of Hong Kong retail industry, in general, work 6 days a week with long working hours which prone to physically and mentally fatigued and affecting working performance. HKJEBN understand the above problems, for implementing the philosophy of providing ideal working environment so that employees can fully relieve the work pressure and have enough rest time.
As early as late 2003, HKJEBN has launched "Eight days leave per month" program in two phases. First launched in all shops and created a precedent for retailing industry.
From August of 2014 onwards, an enhanced 5-days work arrangement will apply to all shops and the production department. All staff members who have already worked for one year will be able to enjoy a 5-days working week. This will allow the staff to have sufficient time to rest. The policy will benefit both the staff reporting to production department and logistic department as well. This is a pioneering benefit in an industry that the people working have commonly described as having both long working hours and a lack of time for rest.
