Sands China Ltd. held a screening of the film “My People, My Country” at Cinema Alegria Tuesday, as part of the company’s ongoing effort to build professionalism and deepen understanding of national development among team members, aiming to deepen their understanding China’s history and culture, and the development of the Greater Bay Area.
“Sands China’s philosophy on team member training is a holistic one,” said Dr. Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd. “We aim for our team members to be well-rounded individuals, giving them opportunities for professional and personal growth and development. In our efforts to contribute to their professionalism education, we are very pleased to be the first integrated resort operator to have reserved an entire theatre for team members to view this film about China during this celebratory 70th anniversary year.”
“My People, My Country” is a movie co-directed by Golden Rooster Best Director award winner Chen Kaige and others. With the theme of “memorable historic moments,” the movie recalls inspiring true stories from China’s last 70 years through seven short plays. The film enables team members to learn about some of the nation’s great achievements, while seeing through the eyes of individual characters who demonstrate the patriotism of the Chinese people and the current pulse of Chinese market.
One team member said: “This is the second time I’ve been to a screening organised by the company, and it’s helped me learn even more about our country’s culture, history and development, and to gain insights about the current development of the Greater Bay Area.”
Sands China had also organised a professionalism education film screening for its team members last year with a showing of the two-part documentary “Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge.”
Sands China Ltd. has been committed to improving the professionalism of its 28,000 team members through various initiatives, including professional literacy training courses, professional lectures, various professional exchange activities, and through film viewing sessions.
