MGM Hosts “World Reading Day” Celebration Series
Promoting a Reading Culture in MGM to Nurture Diversified Development for Team Members
MGM hosts “MGM World Reading Day Celebration Series”.

MGM attaches great importance to the whole-person development approach of its team members and has collaborated with various institutions to provide them with diverse learning opportunities. With the support of the Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC) of the Macao SAR Government and the Macau Federation of Trade Unions (FAOM), MGM organized the “MGM World Reading Day Celebration Series” under the theme of “Nurture Great Talent and Craftsmanship” to celebrate the upcoming World Reading Day on April 23. The series of events, which includes a sharing session and two roadshows, also marks the launch of the “Golden Lion Reading Corner,” where team members can enjoy reading during their breaks at the company. In addition, IC has designated MGM as a “Reading Point” of “Reading in the City” campaign to promote a vibrant reading culture and support the personal growth of team members through reading.

The “MGM World Reading Day Celebration Series to Nurture Great Talent and Craftsmanship” was held at MGM MACAU. During the event, Ho Sut Heng, President of the FAOM, encouraged MGM team members to strive for excellence through craftsmanship and to constantly upgrade their skills. The event also saw the inauguration of the “Golden Lion Reading Corner” in the back-of-house area of the company. It aims to make books more easily available for all team members. In addition, the Worker Book House of FAOM has provided various resources for the Golden Lion Reading Corner, covering genres such as literature, history, psychology, and philosophy. MGM team members also have access to digital resources from a system operated by the China Worker Publishing House, such as e-books and audiobooks. This makes MGM the first company in Macau to have this privilege.

MGM has been joining hands with the public libraries since 2018 to host reading promotional events, which were well-received by the team. Serving as a “Reading Point” for the “Reading in the City” event organized by the IC, both MGM MACAU and MGM COTAI held roadshows to enable team members to learn more about the services of public libraries in Macau and how to use their digital learning resources. MGM is also going to organize more reading promotional events.

Distinguished guests of the “MGM World Reading Day Celebration Series to Nurture Great Talent and Craftsmanship” included: Huang Huagai, Deputy Secretary-General and Director of the Department of Social Affairs at the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Macau SAR; Cheang Kai Meng, Acting Director of the IC; Ho Sut Heng, President of the FAOM; Choi Kam Fu, Deputy Director-General of the FAOM; Kenneth Feng, President and Executive Director of MGM China Holdings Limited; Francis Tan, Vice President of Learning & Talent Management of MGM; and Benjamin Hong, Executive Director of Learning & Talent Development of MGM.
