Graduation ceremony

The Upper House – part of Swire Hotels – in partnership with The Hong Kong Down Syndrome Association (HKDSA), has completed a programme that sought to provide vocational experiences for its members and equip them with skills to integrate into society.

Ten members from HKDSA joined the programme which included 18 hours of training, followed by a two-month attachment with the guest experience, restaurant & bar, housekeeping and kitchen departments. In total, 14 representatives from The Upper House formed a dedicated committee to provide guidance for the members, mentoring them through back-of-house operation and guest engagement.

Participants were awarded certifications at the graduation ceremony

Upon completion, a graduation ceremony was held where certificates were awarded to the participants. Two members also gained long-term employment.

This is part of the company’s SD 2030 vision, an initiative to reinforce the company’s commitment to sustainable development. The partnership with HKDSA will continue to be one of the property’s CSR commitments, with new programmes to be announced in 2019.
