COMPANY BACKGROUND

Founded in 1896 and headquartered in London, Knight Frank has 488 offices in 57 territories and over 20,000 people. Established in Hong Kong in 1972, Knight Frank is a leading provider of real estate services in Greater China, with offices in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Macau, and Taipei.

Knight Frank is the largest independent property consultancy in the world, and by the nature of being a partnership, our decisions are made by and for our people with a focus on long-term impact. Whenever we operate in the world, we aim to provide our client services in four core areas:
  • Residential
  • Occupier Services & Commercial Agency
  • Capital Markets
  • Valuations & Advisory
Our purpose – to work responsibly, in partnership, to enhance people’s lives and environments – means that we empower our people to have autonomy in their role and encourage them to think differently about how we can make the difference through our work and behaviour.


OUR GLOBAL VALUES

Value the individual. We recognise strength in difference and we aspire to make Knight Frank a place where every person can feel supported to perform at their best. Our colleagues’ personal experience and progression is a priority at Knight Frank.

Collaboration to succeed. We believe in the power of teams and take pride in collective progress. Our partnership means that our people are inherently collaborative. We work together to achieve our goals and support and inspire each other to do their best.

Make the difference. We bring positive energy and insight. Our people create the future instead of waiting for it to happen.

Commit to partnership. We act with integrity to build trust and always think about the long-term, bigger picture in a considered and dedicated way. We trust, commit and reward our people and in return, ask our people to dedicate their ideas and energy to strengthening and growing our partnership globally.

LIFE AT KNIGHT FRANK

Staff Well-Being
In addition to core staff benefits, a voluntary benefits programme extends comprehensive insurance coverage for employees and their families based on individual needs.

For work-life balance, the annual leave entitlement for all employees increases according to length of service. Upon reaching every 10 years of service, we award employees for their loyalty, commitment, and contribution with extra leave and other rewards. We give employees 1 day’s paid leave in the month of their birthday.

With the aim of helping our colleagues to be at their best, both mentally and physically, we run “Wellness Week” every year to promote a healthy lifestyle amongst our workforce.

Our “Knight Club” comprises committee members from different departments, and regularly organises social activities including sports events, cooking and handicraft workshops, and CSR activities.

Staff Health & Safety
The health and safety of our employees are always our top priority. To ensure a secure and safe workplace, we have heightened office hygiene by regular disinfection of meeting rooms and common areas throughout the day, and close supervision of daily office cleaning before office hours.

We have implemented flexible work arrangements including flexible work hours, flexible lunchtime and work rosters. We have invested in IT resources by replacing desktops with laptops, and upgrading our IT infrastructure to facilitate remote working.

Diversity & Inclusion
We are committed to promoting a working culture where everyone is respected for who they are and their individuality. Our Respect, Diversity and Inclusion Policy ensures that all of our employees, irrespective of age, gender, family status, nationality, disability, race and religion, sexual orientation and identity, are protected equally.

LEARNING AT KNIGHT FRANK

Training
Our comprehensive learning and development courses, both classroom-based and e-learning, cover a wide range of topics including: new joiner induction, technical skills and updates, health and safety, risk and compliance, business skills, and management and leadership skills.

“Learn & Grow” is a series of topical seminars at which Department Heads share their professional and technical knowledge with junior staff to keep them abreast of the latest industry trends and updates.

To nurture talent and equip our people with skills to become our next generation of leaders, Knight Frank sponsors high-potential staff on the Ivey Business School’s Accelerating Management Talent (AMT) Programme.

Support for Professional Qualifications
Knight Frank grants study and exam leave, subsidises course fees, and reimburses professional body membership subscriptions.

COLLABORATION AT KNIGHT FRANK

Knight Frank emphasises the importance of collaboration and integration across regions, departments and offices. Company-wide team building activities are organised on a half-yearly basis to promote collaboration.

Employees gain business insights about other departments at “Get To Know” seminars, during which teams take turns introducing their capability, track record, and clients to facilitate cross-selling and collaboration.

Our web-based “Collaboration and Referral Tracker” provides a firm-wide platform for tracking collaboration and referral opportunities. An award is given quarterly and annually to the employee who registers the most collaborations and referrals to applaud their spirit, and another award is given to the individual who refers the largest piece of work billed.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Global Programme
Knight Frank’s global “Building Foundations” programme actively encourages CSR and giving back to the communities in which we operate. This includes a “Day of Giving” once every two years when Knight Frank around the world commits to a firm-wide charity event.

Charity Events
Locally, we organise regular CSR activities with NGOs and participate in fund-raising events.

Environmental Protection
Knight Frank is dedicated to minimising the environmental impact of our business. Our Green Committee actively promotes reducing our carbon footprint at work and at home. The WWF LOOP and World Green Organisation (WGO) GOALS awards recognise Knight Frank’s efforts in promoting and supporting environmental protection.
