Keep Your Life Balanced

Dear colleagues,

By now I trust you have seen the good results CLP delivered in 2017. The biggest contribution behind our solid performance, despite the challenges facing the energy industry, is the hard work, dedication and effort from each and every one of you. For that, I would like to express my deepest gratitude for your hard work and commitment. But life isn’t all about hard work!

Keeping healthy and happy is a key factor in sustaining good performance. That’s why we want to do our best to look after your wellbeing at CLP. CLP cares for people. We trust and respect you and our goal is to provide a supportive working environment that allows you to keep a positive work-life balance.

To promote health and wellness, not only do we offer a range of initiatives. The management team also tries to lead by example. For me, the best way to recharge is hiking along Hong Kong’s many trails on weekends and taking walking holidays with my family in beautiful places. I have a particular fondness for mountains, and the exercise, beautiful scenery and fresh air help clear my mind and give me a better work-life balance.

Between juggling the responsibilities of family and leading our entire Indian business, Rajiv Mishra runs marathons. You can read more about how he finds balance in his life and why he thinks it’s important to have personal priorities in his interview with CLP.CONNECT.

Also in this issue of CLP.CONNECT you can read about other CLP colleagues with exciting hobbies such as building solar-powered race cars. Zachary Wong is one of our young assistant engineers and a three-time participant in the prestigious World Solar Challenge that takes place in Australia. Once a lost teenager, he can attest that hard work and persistence pay off as he builds a career around his passion – electricity – and fulfills his dreams. His inspiring story and tales from other colleagues tell us that one can reach the finishing line with strong determination, a positive attitude and an innovative mind.

One thing I have learned from hiking is this: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Spring is the season for new beginnings. It is the time of plans and projects. Let’s all tune up our work-life balance in 2018.

Happy Reading!

Richard Lancaster
