We are merely caretakers for the next generation. We must preserve, sustain and even resurrect.

DIVERSE AND EQUALRecently, the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) of Hong Kong recognized QI Group as an Equal Opportunity Employer from across a wide spectrum of industries and sectors for its best practices under the categories of Gender Equality and Family Status Equality.
Our diverse and inclusive work culture is a testament to the Group’s commitment to its mission of RYTHM, which is reflected in all aspects of the organisation that encourages employees to realise their full potential.
Our global workforce includes 46 nationalities, who speak in over 50 languages. Many of our employees have been with us for more than 10 years with approximately 46% of our global workforce made up of women. Additionally, about 40% of the management positions are occupied by female staff. Our team in Hong Kong is highly multinational, with more than 25% of employees are from countries outside of Hong Kong. We thrive in cultural differences and benefit from diversified skills and mindsets.
GIVING BACKDriven by the concept of RYTHM, we have established RYTHM Foundation, the QI Group’s social impact initiative. It invests in the communities in which we operate, through strategic partnerships, employee volunteering, and community service. The Foundation’s core values are built on the principles of Empowerment, Volunteerism, and Resilience.
RYTHM in its simplest form means empowering yourself before you can help someone else. And this philosophy has held us in good stead for over two decades because it is the driving force of everything we do. Our aim is to make a sustainable social impact through all that we are involved in, be it business, philanthropy, investments, or sponsorships.
Through all of our work, be it grant making, volunteer engagement or investing in human development programmes, our goal is to empower lives and transform communities.
Environmental FriendlyAt QI, we strongly believe in preserving the environment for a sustainable future. In view of this, we have implemented two policies; going meat-free and plastic-free.
Since our inception in 1998, the QI Group has incorporated a meat-free and plastic-free policy globally in all their offices, including Hong Kong, to reduce the company’s environmental impact. Additionally, employees of the Group have donated over 100,000 volunteer hours to more than 750 environmental and social causes in over ten countries in the last five years. The company is also deeply involved in giving back to the community through its social impact initiative, the RYTHM Foundation, and with youth development through its investment in the PJ City Football Club.
‘As a responsible corporate citizen, we have taken a stand to make all our premises and events meat-free. Going meat-free is the most important environmental action we can take to mitigate the harmful effects of the meat industry which affects land, water, and the atmosphere.
We live in a world where sustainability needs to be everyone’s priority and we believe a plant-based economy can contribute to the betterment of Mother Earth. Going meat-free is our endeavour towards sustainability, preserving precious natural resources for our children.
In our effort to contribute to the global cause of reducing the negative impact of single-use plastic, which is killing and harming animals and causing irreversible harm to the environment, we have discontinued the use of all single-use plastic products in all the offices of the QI Group.
We will also focus our efforts on sourcing more environmentally sustainable alternatives to single-use plastic and will continue to do so as part of our commitment to ban single-use plastics from our operations.
Staff Social ResponsibilityAt QI Group, the spirit of giving back is exemplified through its employee-led Staff Social Responsibility (SSR) programme. SSR participation is highly encouraged, and it makes up a significant percentage of the annual staff performance appraisal.
QI, despite the stark challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn, we had remained steadfast in our commitment to the values of equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion.
We continue to organize SSR activities to care for our community. In February 2020, there were shortage of masks and sanitizing products, we organized an activity to distribute the sanitizing bags to the elderly centers. To keep the social distancing, we organized the virtual run and the virtual clean up in October 2020. Our staff selected their own place and time to finish the running based on the specific requirements. For the cleanup activity, staff can choose their own route of hiking trail, beach or Country Park to clean up the rubbish with their family members. Our Hong Kong team enthusiastically participated in the activities and we are truly proud to be serving the community under the new normal situation.
