The Shared Value 101 workshops are designed for businesses that want a more in depth understanding of Shared Value principles, and how they can be integrated into business. The workshop aims to continue to strengthen understanding of Shared Value and dispel misconceptions and misinterpretations. The workshops are designed to outline the principles of Shared Value, demonstrate best practice and allow participants to start thinking about their own project design. An emphasis is put on ways in which businesses can contribute to social innovations needed to tackle many of the challenges that remain in Hong Kong.
The Shared Value Implementation and Impact Measurement workshops target companies that already understand Shared Value and have started identifying possibilities in their operations or have started to implement a Shared Value project. With an aim to increase the success rate and impact of the Shared Value projects that are being created, these workshops will work with participants to troubleshoot common issues during implementation and give guidance on impact measurement and communicating progress and achievements. Participants will be able to share their practical questions and their cases for discussion. Shared Value opportunities in some pressing social topics will also be presented for participants to explore.

- Age-friendly city
- Zero-waste lifestyles
- Equal opportunities and diversity in workplaces
- Closing Hong Kong’s education gaps

The coaching sessions aim to support companies that are ready to develop a Shared Value initiative or strategy with good potentials but require tailor-made and one-on-one support to kick start or overcome some barriers. Selected companies will be coached to further develop their plans through training, market research, stakeholder engagement and partnership building.
