ERB Manpower Developer Award Scheme

With a view to instilling a corporate culture advocating the importance of manpower training and development, the Employees Retraining Board (ERB) launched the "ERB Manpower Developer Award Scheme" in December 2009 to recognise organisations which demonstrate outstanding achievements in manpower training and development as Manpower Developers (MDs). The ERB hopes that manpower training and development will become a common value which will be conducive to the competitiveness of Hong Kong. Up to now, a total of 378 organisations from over 30 industries have been recognised as MDs.

The Scheme is the first award scheme to assess the level of maturity of manpower training and development strategies and practices of organisations in Hong Kong. The Scheme aims to promote and cultivate a corporate culture focusing on manpower training and development among organisations, heighten the awareness of the employers and employees of the importance of on-the-job training and continuous upgrading, and recognise and support employers who are committed to manpower training and development.

The ERB has appointed an independent Technical Consultant to formulate the accreditation mechanism and assessment criteria for reviewing and evaluating the level of maturity of manpower training and development strategies and practices of organisations. The organisations that fulfill the criteria will be acknowledged as MD within a two-year validity period, subject to renewal every two years.

Through the Scheme, the ERB has created a diversified, multi-facet and sustainable interactive platform for MDs. Through various employer activities, the ERB fosters its strategic partnership with MDs and cultivates a common value to enhance the quality of human resources in Hong Kong.
