Learning Organization

Haitong International is a learning organization that strives for continuous improvement. Giving employees the right incentives/sponsorship and providing training opportunities are crucial to employees’ motivation and engagement. Employees are encouraged to attend relevant training for at least 20 hours per year and obtain work-related professional qualifications for career development. In 2020, over 150 Internal training sessions were arranged, which covered product training, markets updates, compliance/regulatory training, risk management topics, soft-skills and FinTech training.


Driving Internationalization

Haitong International moves towards internationalization and extends its network globally. By the end of 2020, Haitong International has 1,355 employees in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Singapore, Japan, India, United Kingdom, Australia and the United States, among which 25% are foreign employees. Under its “talent-oriented” philosophy, Haitong International applies fair recruitment practices and hires based on individual’s competencies. The senior management team welcomes a diversified talent pool which they believe will lead the Company into a new era.

Nurturing and Engaging Young Talents

Haitong International’s core people strategy is to build its own talent pipeline and foster a sustainable development across the organization. Haitong International started its Management Trainee (“MT”) Program in 2008, being one of the very few Hong Kong-based Chinese financial services providers to launch such a program. Haitong International continuously reviews the program to align with the best practices to attract, engage and retain young talents. Today, the Program is an integrated development journey which offers not only structured on-the-job rotations, classroom and experiential training but also a series of accelerator programs to facilitate ongoing personal and leadership development, as well as FinTech and Global Innovation practices.

Haitong International’s MT Club had been established in 2017 with the objectives of nurturing its talent pool for the strategic development of the group, enhancing cohesiveness and engagement in the Company and improve communication and networking among the MTs. As an innovative and caring employer, Haitong International has set up the “Management Trainee Home Starter Loan Scheme” (“Scheme”) in 2019. The Company understands that it is a common aspiration of young adults to own property. The Scheme aims to partially ease the financial burden and support MTs as first time property buyers in Hong Kong.

To build a pipeline of future talents, Haitong International keeps a close connection with local universities. The Company partnered with CUHK and launched the “AI Early Talent Program” in 2019, which aimed to facilitate student development in FinTech projects. HTI was also invited to deliver speech to students at HKU MBA Program on leadership and industry knowledge for their career development purposes.

Cultivating Future Leaders Within the Organization

Haitong International launched its first “SAIL Program” in 2020, targeting at outstanding middle management employees who are identified as the Company’s key talent pool. This program aims to create the space for the selected staff to showcase their leadership potential, and to nurture a group of future leaders to fill the company’s leadership pipeline. Participants of the program were provided with leadership trainings and mentorship by the senior management, and opportunities in job rotations.

In order to build a stronger employer brand in attracting high potential talents, a new Recruitment Advertisement was launched in 2020 on TV channels and YouTube.

In addition, being a socially responsible company, HTI actively participated in both the “Financial Industry Recruitment Scheme for Tomorrow” scheme organized by Financial Services and the Treasury Bureau & Financial Services Development Council in Hong Kong, and “New Graduates – New Opportunities Scheme” organized by The Hong Kong Chinese Enterprises Association. Through these programs, HTI created job opportunities for local university graduates during the difficult times of COVID-19.

Continuous Benefits Enhancement

There is also a provision for dental benefits to employees who enjoy a fixed amount of reimbursement annually on all dental related expenses. Additionally, a voluntary medical insurance upgrade was introduced since 2019, offering better and more flexible medical coverage to employees and their dependents. The “e-medical claim” mobile app by the insurance company was launched and adopted by the Company for employees and their families, which is highly acclaimed by users for its added convenience.
