Building and Developing our Workforce

We are growing our professional team and are looking for new talents with a wide range of knowledge, skills and expertise to support our transformation from a city airport into an Airport City.

Timely recruitment to support airport expansion

In 2019/20, 307 new staff joined AAHK to support our Airport City development. The cross-divisional recruitment taskforce continued to closely monitor the overall recruitment progress against our recruitment plan to ensure timely supply of manpower.

The New Hire Onboarding Programme was kicked off and an e-Orientation Programme was introduced to enrich the onboarding journey of the new hires.

Strengthening staff and leadership development

To build a talent pool and strengthen the leadership pipeline, our annual talent review and succession planning process regularly assesses AAHK’s leadership bench strength and development plans of key individuals and high-potential staff. In 2019/20, we designed and implemented a 12-month leadership development programme to strengthen leadership competence at the middle manager level.

We continued to enhance the learning curriculum to strengthen skills and industry knowledge of our staff. In 2019/20, our staff collectively received 42,894 hours of training. The average number of training hours per employee1 is 15.6 hours.
