We invite all organisations, large, small, profit or non-profit,

to participate in this campaign. There
are two categories in the participation of Work-Life Balance Week.
All companies which have provided sufficient information about their relevant policies in the registration form, demonstrating that they are moving forward their work-life balance journey by formulating relevant policies and putting these measures into standard practices.
Participating Organisations (參與機構)
have pledged that they will organise activities and/or launch new
initiatives to promote work-life balance during the Work-Life Balance
Advocate Companies provide
special offers to participating organisations as a way to support
Work-Life Balance Week. These offers include tailor-made workshops,
programmes, or discount rates that organisations can use to promote
work-life balance to their employees.
Supporting Organisation is an organisation, for profit or not-for-profit,
which has been invited by Community Business to support Work-Life Balance
Week by promoting the Week to their network.
Community Business and its member companies are
dedicated to raising awareness of work-life balance as a
business issue. As part of this commitment,
over a decade
running Community Business has commissioned
the state of work-life balance in Hong
Kong. Conducted by the Public Opinion Programme at The
University of Hong Kong, this annual study has become
the leading reference point on this issue.
Findings from the 2006
- 2015 surveys repeatedly
show that employees in Hong Kong are dissatisfied with
their work-life balance which is impacting their
productivity, health and relationships with family and
friends. They believe that senior business leaders and
their employers can do more to address the situation.
In order to raise the awareness of work-life balance as
a critical business issue, Community Business has been
engaging the business sector through educational
workshops, training sessions and consultancy work. In
addition, Community Business has run an
awareness-raising campaign, introducing Work-Life
Balance Day in Hong Kong for the first time in October
2008, which then expanded to a Week every October and
extended across Asia. By focusing companies’ efforts on
showing commitment to work-life balance and providing
visible support to their employees during the Week, this
campaign has proven the power of collective action in
raising awareness of an important issue to the business
