Equal Opportunities Commission, Hong Kong http://www.eoc.org.hk/ The EOC was established in 1996 with the goal of promoting equal opportunities and eliminating discrimination. To achieve this goal, we need the support of the community and the business sector. The effective use of human resources is one of the key elements of every business's success. And equal opportunities is about using human resources effectively. Its basic philosophy is to create a level-playing field for the individual. In the employment world, it means matching the right person with the right job. We focus on people's abilities, not on their gender, marital status, or what they cannot do. Companies will reach their competitive potential when every employee feels fully valued and fully utilized.
