Allocating scholarships to the staff children admitted by colleges and universities is a move to reward them for their hard study and encourage education. Due to changes of values and the impact of economic benefit at present, many have doubts about the concept of teaching and education, and the idea of uselessness of study has been rampant. In this context, Yuchai's perseverance in rewarding the staff children admitted by colleges and universities is undoubtedly a strong support for education and provided a hard proof for the proportion that study changes fate.
Child education is not a family affair, but also a concern of the great family of Yuchai. Allocating scholarships is aimed to motivate more students to strive for the best and is actually creating a favorable atmosphere of studying for the best for the great family of Yuchai. Creating a favorable study environment for staff children has dispelled the worries of most staff, promoted community harmony and better aroused staff's passion for devotion.
Awarding outstanding students has planted a seed of gratitude in their hearts. The move can motivate them to study hard and endeavor to succeed to devote themselves to the society and Yuchai in the future.
Allocating grants to needy students to fulfill their dream of schooling is not only an enterprise's conscience, but also its care for staff families. As the famous Chinese saying goes, "Those who give roses to others have lingering fragrance on hands", the enterprise shows love in helping needy students, earns respect from the public and establishes good reputation by doing so. These are the enterprise's intangible assets.
