Being an innovator and technology enabler, HKTV delicates to use technology to change or evolve the traditional landscape of various industries, including telecommunication, media and retailing. We are the only very few companies willing to devote tremendous resources in developing the online shopping business in the Hong Kong market, and hence we are now running the largest online shopping platform – HKTVmall in Hong Kong. We further commercialise our self-developed end-to-end eCommerce system under Shoalter Technology to facilitate the industry digitalization process. Embraced by this technology DNA, we invent our patented Fully Automated Retail Store under Shoalter Automation. This technology arm extends HKTV’s foothold to beyond Hong Kong.

HKTV treats its Talent as "internal VIPs". The Talent Management Department is set up as a strong communication channel for all Talent to express their needs in furthering their career. The department deliberately takes care of all reasonable requests and implements them whenever feasible. It strives for every effort in areas of talent requisition, compensation and engagement, retention and formulation of internal talent policies and procedures for different departments in the company. In order to better cater to the development needs of our Talent, we have set up an internal training and development team. Together with external professional consultants, we work out different training programs so as to enable the Talent and the Group to grow together for a win-win achievement.
In August 2017, we relocated our headquarters to our newly built premises in Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate, covering more than 200,000 square feet floor area and being named as HKTV Multimedia and Ecommerce Center (the "Centre"). The center consists of two main buildings, including office area, e-fulfillment facilities, studios, and post-production facilities. Meanwhile, the Group converted space of approximately 55,000 square feet into an E-commerce Fulfillment Centre with the installation of its second set of automatic warehousing and picking system at a larger scale, valued at about HKD140 million from Germany to enhance the Group’s operational efficiency of the entire e-commerce distribution process and to accelerate the integration of e-commerce distribution with the Centre’s multimedia capabilities. The robotic system comprises a conveying system, an automatic picking system, an automatic storage and retrieval system, as well as tote handling systems including the software for material flow control and automatic management.
Besides, each office floor of the Centre has spacious resting and collaboration areas for Talents to temporarily escape from their hectic schedules, get meditation and regain energy. There is a large scale of staff canteen on the ground floor, staffed with several chefs in different specialization to provide elaborately high nutritional Chinese and Western dishes. Home-made meal boxes are provided at night time for free to Talent working overnight or overtime. Meanwhile, shuttle bus service and parking spaces are available for Talent to commute.
The Group has enormous fulfilment centres in Tuen Mun, Mapletree Logistics Hub Tsing Yi and self-owned property at Trans Asia Centre in Kwai Chung. Our first large-scale automatic picking and conveying system introduced from Germany has been put into operation in March 2018 at Tsing Yi logistics centre with an aim to optimize the output of the whole logistics, fulfilment and warehousing functions. Whereas, in the Kwai Chung logistics centre, there are refrigerated warehouse facilities with three different temperatures, together with the Group's cold truck fleet to form a powerful cold logistics chain for the e-commerce development. The cross-belt sorter system located in Tuen Mun fulfilment centre mainly handles the parcel transit from merchants to enhance productivity, accuracy of order processing and to improve the working environment of warehouse operators.
With our O2O shops network and delivery fleet, they are serving different customer segments and they combine to form an extensive residential distribution network that supports the development of HKTVmall's new retailing. The O2O stores can also be used as online shopping education centre, order pick up points, and major promotional channels to bring customers from offline to online platforms.
To cope with operational needs and the nature of various types of work, we have different working schedules. There is a minimum of 72 days holiday per year for the Talents on roster shift. The general office Talents work on a five-day week and they can also decide on their own work time autonomously. They are free to start the day before 10:00 a.m. so as to work at their most efficient time and to handle private affairs with ease after work.
As to provide talents with greater flexibility and the option to work from home, while maintaining the in-person interactions that are crucial for personal growth and, the company community and culture, we have adopted hybrid work. The general office Talents has the option to choose up to 2 days in a week to work from home.
In order to make the travelling to our Tseung Kwan O and Tsing Yi offices more conveniently, apart from providing free morning pick-up service in selected areas, we are also continuously increasing the frequency of shuttle bus services to and from nearby MTR stations. At present, it is maintained at 3 shifts or more per hour during peak hours.
We have various types of leave benefits, such as marriage leave, maternity leave, paternity leave, jury leave, compassionate leave, etc., to meet the Talents’ needs at different stages of life. In addition, we provided birthday leave and family care leave, so that Talents can have more time to relax and take care of their families. In order to encourage continuous learning, we also provide examination leave on the approved courses.
Being HKTV Talent, we all can enjoy Talent shopping offers at HKTVmall from time to time, including employee discount for shopping at HKTVmall.
We provide comprehensive group medical, accidental and life insurance, as well as dental care for all full-time Talents, freeing them from worries in these aspects.

In addition to setting up internal Learning and Development Team, the Group also provides educational subsidy of up to 30% of a talent’s monthly salary for external education and sabbatical leave of up to one year.
