I have been working at Paul Y. for seven years. I am glad to have participated in a building project in Macau. When working abroad, I realised deeply the importance of team spirit! The project team in Macau encountered lots of challenges. Nevertheless, the team members held firmly to their positions and overcame the obstacles. The project was scheduled for completion in 31 months but we managed to complete the project three months ahead of schedule, and received wide recognition from the client and external parties.
I am glad to see Paul Y. gradually transform from a traditional construction company to a well-developed enterprise through strategic implementation and management in various aspects, ranging from engineering services, innovation, adoption of technologies, to management approaches.
I joined Paul Y. five years ago as a Management Trainee and was stationed at CEO-Office for three years. My most memorable experience was planning a trip for our senior management to Malaysia and Singapore where I have improved my organisational and time management skills. Also, I was able to rotate to different departments, having a thorough understanding of not just the construction industry itself, but the function of each department and how they attribute to the Group as a whole.
I have joined the Legal Department for almost two years and the challenges encountered are not less than those in previous days. I have learnt how to boldly overcome challenges and difficulties.
Here in Paul Y., I am thankful for the culture of “Speak Up!”. Throughout my work experience here, my feedback and opinions have been heard and this culture is a shot in the arm for young colleagues.
I have been working at Paul Y. for around three years. What impresses me most is the caring company culture. The colleagues are friendly and helpful. When I encounter difficulties, my colleagues are always willing to lend a helping hand. I enjoy working with them in this harmonious atmosphere and am grateful for their support.
I have been given opportunities to meet different people, provided with valuable experiences and taught how to collaborate with seasoned seniors in the company.
There are plenty of opportunities in Paul Y. as long as you make an effort to seize them. Paul Y. is a “Rising Star” and it offers unique work experience to younger generations in respect of corporate image, technology application and employee training.
I did not major in Human Resources (HR) Management, but I am grateful for joining Paul Y.’s HR team after graduation. Developing my career from a part-time staff to an Assistant HR Officer in two years, I have been offered the opportunity of job rotation with various projects to broaden my horizons. During my stay in the training and the recruitment team, I have taken part in different significant projects, such as Graduate Trainee Programmes and team-building activities. All these experiences have been invaluable to my career development.
I have gained solid foundation in talent acquisition, training and development and employee relationship as I am lucky to have learned from my patient and caring supervisors. Our Senior Management recognises that generational differences exist and takes conscious effort to use those differences effectively and bridge the gap between generations of employees.
I graduated from University in 2018 and joined Paul Y. as a Graduate Engineer (Civil discipline) and I am currently seconded to Contract No. 1002EM19A Design-Build-Operate Contract for the Additional District Cooling System at the Kai Tak Development. During my three years of training, I am grateful for the diverse exposure and opportunities encountered, ranging from hotel to public infrastructure projects where I was learning every minute. Apart from establishing a solid foundation to attain competence of a chartered engineer, my experience also represents Paul Y.’s expectation towards the young generation.
Our Graduate Trainees have quarterly gatherings where we shared our thoughts and reflected our high and lows. Throughout the gatherings, colleagues with different disciplines participate to provide guidance and assistance, discovering the skills and experience we need to become a successful chartered engineer.
Till today, the understanding of good communication inspired me in the importance of self-reflect and self-acknowledgment. I am happy to continue learning and look forward to unleashing my potential in Paul Y.
