  • Self-assessment - organisations can make reference to the assessment criteria and training and developmental activities detailed in the application form for review and evaluation of the effectiveness of their own strategies and practices.

The accreditation is conducive to corporate image, staff loyalty and attraction to talents. Corporate goodwill will also be further enhanced through participating in promotion and employer activities of the Scheme.

  • ERB information - MDs can receive first-hand information of ERB courses and services. Their staff can enrol he courses and make use of the services to enhance on-the-job knowledge and skills.
