Good MPF Employer Award 2018-19 open for applications

The Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Authority (MPFA) invites applications for the Good MPF Employer Award 2018-19 from today (1 April) to 30 June 2019.

To mark the 5th anniversary of the Good MPF Employer Award, two new awards will be introduced this year. Companies / organizations that have been awarded the Good MPF Employer Award for five consecutive years will receive the Good MPF Employer 5 Years Award. Of the companies / organizations eligible for the Good MPF Employer 5 Years Award, those who have offered more than one Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF) scheme for employees to choose as well as MPF voluntary contributions for all employees in 2018-19 will be named the MPF Excellent Employer.

Employers wishing to apply for the Award can fill in and submit an application online on the Good MPF Employer Award website. Employees are also welcome to nominate their employers for the Award by submitting a nomination form.

The annual Good MPF Employer Award aims to promote and foster employers’ compliance with MPF legislation, encourage employers to provide better retirement benefits for their employees, and give recognition to employers who are exemplary in enhancing the retirement benefits of their employees. Apart from having participated in an MPF scheme for at least one year and complying with the MPF legislation, a Good MPF Employer must also have provided extra retirement protection for its employees.

Companies / organizations that qualify for the Good MPF Employer Award and fulfil the assessment criteria for the e-Contribution Award and the Support for MPF Management Award will receive extra recognition for their efforts to adopt electronic tools for MPF administration and to encourage their employees to actively manage their MPF, respectively.

Results of the Good MPF Employer Award 2018-19 will be announced in September 2019. The MPFA will hold an award presentation ceremony in October, at which award certificates will be presented to the awardees. The list of awardees will be uploaded to the MPFA website for reference by members of the public. In addition to attending activities organized by the MPFA and receiving the MPFA Newsletter, awardees will be entitled to display the award logo on their websites and in their promotional materials, advertisements and activities until 30 September 2020.

This is the fifth year the MPFA has organized the Good MPF Employer Award. The response in the past years has been encouraging, with 1,102 companies or organizations receiving the Good MPF Employer Award in 2018.
