“HKIH Elite Awards 2022” Opens for Nomination Today To Commend Outstanding Housing Management Professionals and Teams

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach
– 12 January 2022 – Organised by The Hong Kong Institute of Housing (HKIH),
the “HKIH Elite Awards 2022” is open for nomination today. Nomination
period will close at 12:00 noon, 26 April 2022.

Housing management professionals have been working behind the scene to
enhance a harmonious, well-managed living and working environment for all local
citizens over the years. Their contribution and outstanding performance should
be recognised and made known to a wider public. With social unrests and
pandemic challenges, housing management professionals’ dedicated efforts were
especially profound and important for the community. Thus, HKIH launched the
first HKIH Elite Awards in 2020 to reward the outstanding contributions of our
members and industry practitioners as a whole. By bringing together leading
corporate executives, professionals and academic institutions, as well as
industry leaders, the HKIH Elite Awards offers an excellent opportunity for
local housing management individuals and teams to be recognised for their
professionalism and achievement. This year, HKIH sustains the effort to commend
industry practitioners and their teams by launching the HKIH Elite Awards 2022 today.

Uplift Professionalism under New Normal

The theme for HKIH
Elite Awards 2022 is “Uplift Professionalism under New Normal“. The
global pandemic and the accelerated information exchange has brought forward a new normal for
everybody. Housing management professionals are also in need to adapt to new
working models as a result. Despite challenges and difficulties, housing management
practitioners have been safeguarding property values, the living and working
environments and are dedicated to uplifting professionalism for citizens in
general. By organising the Awards, HKIH would like to commend outstanding housing
management individuals and teams for their contribution over the years. The
Awards also serves to build role models to foster sustainable growth of the industry.

The HKIH Elite Awards welcomes individual and team nominations.
There are 5 award categories, namely, the Individual Categories of “Outstanding
Manager” and “Outstanding Officer”, the Team Categories of “Outstanding Team”
and “Best Crisis Management Team”, and the “Best Innovative Idea” Category. By
setting up different award categories, it aims to give recognition to outstanding housing management
individuals and teams in different aspects and sectors.
