"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.
