Committed to cultivating local leadership, MGM offers a range of diverse and comprehensive training opportunities for its team members, which coheres with the government’s local talent development initiative of “Building Macao by Capable Talents”. While encouraging team members to follow the pace of national development, MGM has recently organized education trips for trainees of the Management Associate Program (MAP) and associates of PRIDE Program to Bellagio Shanghai of Diaoyutai MGM and Hengqin respectively, allowing them to be exposed to the market trends in mainland China beyond their usual perspectives.
The five MAP trainees from Food and Beverage, Front Office and Facility Management embarked on a month-long training program at Bellagio Shanghai of Diaoyutai MGM, from November 29 to December 29. Through a series of cross-departmental trainings and guidance from their management, they are gaining an in-depth understanding of the business and operational conditions in the local market. This program also provides them with the opportunity to visit best-practice businesses in the tourism industries to observe the latest trends in consumer behavior and technological advancement in mainland China.
On the other hand, a group of 26 supervisory track associates of the PRIDER program paid a visit to Hengqin, Zhuhai, on November 25. They spent a morning at the Hengqin Lions Gate, the new movie-themed interactive theme park, to experience the latest entertainment offerings of Hengqin. A visit to the Macau Brewery at Zhuhai was to follow, where Charles Choy, Co-Chairman of Macau Beer Company Limited, introduced to them the marketing strategies, production line and operation. Associates had the first-hand appreciation of a Macau enterprise which successfully operates in the Greater Bay Area.
Yannis Lai, Front Office Supervisor of MGM MACAU, shared her thoughts after the visit, “Hengqin has got comprehensively planned infrastructures, where we truly experienced the convenience of ‘One Hour Living Sphere’ of the Greater Bay Area. During the visit, we made a stop at Hengqin Lions Gate, the newest entertainment facility, and were able learn about the tourism and entertainment trends through the perspective of hospitality professionals. Integrating the plentiful resources of the Greater Bay Area and the local tourism talents of Macau, the Greater Bay Area will certainly become a tourist hotspot in the near future.”
