【信報:職場須知】唯才是用無界限
上星期,我把得到英國傑出校友獎的榮譽,分予我的母校華威大學及一直在推動英國升學路上語我並肩的隊友。特別是後者,如果沒有他們向來的支持推動,也沒有今日的陳思銘。
 
不少人都留意到,我的團隊很年輕,作為升學中心,我的辦公室有時確實很有青春校園feel。曾經有些人為此戥我擔心,因為覺得時下這些後生仔女很惡搞。近年經常性聽到僱主詬病年輕一代特別是九十後的新聞,甚至聽聞本地有些企業見九十後如見鬼,最終導致公司人手不足而結業。
 
作為老闆,我必須承認我的眼睛有孽障:我看不到我隊友的年齡組別,我看到的只是他們的表現。我真心相信,工作上只有夠不夠好,沒有夠不夠後生或夠不夠老。我的團隊很有活力、很有諗頭、很有拚勁、很有責任心,不是因為他們來自幾多十後,而是因為他們每一個本身都是有活力、有諗頭、有拚勁、有責任心的人。我深信唯才是用的道理,拒絕將「年長」等同有責任感,或是在「年輕」和創意中間畫上等號。經驗告訴我,不論是六十後、七十後、八十後、九十後,都會有膊頭可付託重責的人,也會有想像力天馬行空轉數奇快的人。身為僱主,我致力聘用叻人來協助我,而叻人是每個年代皆有的產物。純粹以出生年代來區分個人的質素,實在是太兒戲了。
 
尊重是靠能力賺回來 
以前在英國讀寄宿學校,每年暑假返港,例必有姨媽姑姐問同一問題:「你啲鬼仔同學有無因為你係中國人蝦你呀?」其實寄宿學校是社會的縮影,鬼仔同學不一定全是橫行無忌的技安(胖虎),亞洲同學也非全是被欺壓的大雄。寄宿生活很快教會我,每個地方、民族、階級都會有人是惡霸,有人會炫富,同時亦會有善良的人、正直的人。在學校如果有人看你不順眼而蝦你,多是因為你不夠融入、或態度囂張、或畏首畏尾。相反,如果一個人舉止磊落大方,自會贏得老師、同學的尊重,跟你的膚色無關。
 
講到尾,我其實想講的是,讀書也好,工作也好,尊重是要靠能力表現品格賺回來的,並不與閣下的性別、年齡、膚色、種族、星座等掛釣。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
