Hong Kong Shared Good Values 2021 Case Competition
In collaboration with Nestlé Hong Kong Limited and Stan Group
Hong Kong Shared Good Values (HKSGV) 2021 Case Competition, a programme which aims to propagate the concept of doing good and doing well in businesses in Hong Kong. A total of 141 teams (about 520 students) registered this year.
Between February and May 2021, participating students contributed ideas on senior management at Nestlé Hong Kong Limited and Stan Group on how they generate creative ideas of offices penetration and engagement, the importance of happy work culture, elderly care and wellness for an age-friendly smart city, creating shared value business concepts, business and social development in Hong Kong.
It was the fifth year that HKSGV organised this case competition. We welcomed current undergraduate and postgraduate students from all universities and higher education institutes, gave out winners’ prizes that are worth up to HK$10,000 each and offered fast-track internship interview opportunities at the aforementioned companies. All students had to register in teams of three to four people.
