    Pay rises for civil servants and a shorter work week; Sinovac's Omicron-targeted vaccine trial

    8:30am-9:15am: civil servants’ pay rise and shorter work week

    8:30am-9:00am: Francis Mok, Executive Council Member, Hong Kong Institute of Human Resource Management

    8:30am-9:15am: Vera Yuen, Lecturer, Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Hong Kong

    9:00am-9:15am: Dr Quratulain Zaidi, Hong Kong-based Clinical Psychologist from MindnLife Psychology Practice

    9:15am-9:30am: Sinovac Omicron vaccine trial

    9:15am-9:30am: Ivan Hung, co-convenor of the Expert Committee on Clinical Events Assessment Following COVID-19 Immunisation

    On Wednesday's Backchat, we will look at pay rises for civil servants, and the merits — or lack thereof — of a shorter work week.
    The new executive council is proposing a 2.5-percent pay rise for civil servants — far lower than the recommendations from the Pay Trend Survey Committee based on a survey of private sector pay. Civil service chief Ingrid Yeung explained the decision for a smaller pay hike was made after taking into account a variety of factors including the state of the economy, and the government’s fiscal position.
    What do you think? Is 2.5 percent the right figure? How will this affect the private sector, if at all? And what do you make of New World Group’s decision to give some of its staff half a day off on Friday for two months this summer? It’s designed to be a family-friendly measure to improve the well-being of staff.
    So is a 4.5-day work week the future? Or is it just not practical?
    After 9:15am, we'll look at a new clinical trial by Sinovac of a new vaccine specifically targeting Omi-cron.

    On Tuesday's Backchat, Covid-19 updates; and pets left behind.

    Foreign domestic helpers start flying in Hong Kong from Monday. The only hotel designated for their quarantine, is already completely booked for September, at a cost of HK$800 per night.

    Meanwhile, microbiologist Yuen Kwok-yung said the city should maintain its zero-Covid strategy for the time being, while suggesting that herd immunity is no longer achievable with the emergence of the Delta variant.

    Hong Kong schools are likely to be running half-day sessions when the new term begins on September 1, as almost none have reached the required 70 per cent threshold of vaccinations.

    As we mostly record imported cases, is it right to let helpers in? Does the zero-Covid strategy really work? How do we encourage people to get vaccinated if herd immunity can no longer achieved? Are half-days appropriate?

    After 9.15am, we’re discussing pets being left homeless as their owners leave Hong Kong.
