One way to build a pipeline of potential employees is to invest in them early. That is the driving idea behind MTR Corporation's Train for Life's Journeys Program. MTR's focus on engaging youths in the local communities of Hong Kong is an outgrowth of the company's corporate responsibility mandate, and focuses on building community relationships while using training and development practices to teach soft skills and leadership development to teenagers.
MTR considers corporate social responsibility a key factor to its success, and developing people is a critical element of its policies. In fact, the company has a strong focus on nurturing an adaptive and effective workforce to meet the evolving needs of its business. What's more, MTR recognizes that today's youths are tomorrow's leaders, and it is committed to contributing to the development of the next generation of leaders.
