Our businesses are commonly associated with physical assets, such as rolling stock, rails and tracks, stations, depots and buildings. Ultimately, however, we depend on the strength and versatility of our workforce to design, build, operate and maintain this infrastructure, bringing it to life each day in service of our customers and communities.
The following tables show the composition of our workforce in Hong Kong, excluding temporary and part-time staff, staff of our subsidiaries and staff based in our offices in the United Kingdom.
We employ 256 people with disabilities, representing 1.6 per cent of our Hong Kong workforce (excluding TraxComm, Rugby Office, NP360, and European Business Unit).
In some business areas, particularly construction of new lines and properties, we rely extensively on contractors who work on our behalf but who are not directly employed by the Company. Please read more about working with contractors in Safety and Value Chain.
