MetLife Hong Kong has been named as a ‘Caring Company’ for the seventh consecutive year by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service.

The award recognises the company’s contributions to the local community through volunteer programs and promoting financial literacy, a statement by MetLife Hong Kong said. Through its digital platform MetLife Discovery, users can learn about insurance and increase public awareness about its benefits.

Aside from financial literacy efforts, the insurer also supports causes such as Treats’ Cookie Workshop, Food Angel’s food rescue program, and the MetLife EcoChallenge. Employees who participate in volunteer programs are granted one full day of paid volunteer leave each year.

“MetLife Hong Kong is committed to corporate social responsibility through helping all members of the Hong Kong community,” said Lee Wood, CEO of MetLife Hong Kong. “Achieving this recognition year after year is solid proof of our continuous efforts to promote a philanthropic philosophy in multiple areas, particularly financial literacy, diversity and inclusion, as well as environmental protection. Giving back to the society is an integral part of our corporate culture, and we will continue to help people and the community navigate life together.”
