Speaking on the Employee Engagement ESG Campaign of the Year Award, Fu said:“ This award seeks to recognise successful campaigns where organisations have initiated employee engagement initiatives to help accelerate progress towards their goals by improving company culture and stimulate innovation, all by activating and enabling their workforce. Such successful campaigns in employee engagement are consistent with our social responsibility strategy and ESG blueprint. Congratulations to the winner Reckitt China, and I hope there will be more socially responsible organisations working towards sustainable development.”
