One of the objectives of ARE Wisdom is to incubate qualified small and medium enterprises (SMEs), business start-ups, non-profit making organisations and social enterprises which are in need of help with the aid of the experience and power of the elderly.
As such, when we perform work matching, we will inform the elderly (Service Providers) whether the Service Recipient seeking service is a “Target Service Recipient” and will encourage the elderly to provide services to a Target Service Recipient at a discounted price.
We will review the eligibility of “Target Service Recipient” from time to time.
Business/ Human Resources Advisory (“Think Tank Sessions”)
Enabling the Service Recipients to have a better understanding of their own business and human resources required, for example, the types and number of staff, and whether an elderly person can be engaged as a self-employed person to perform a particular work, we provide free-of-charge advisory service to the Service Recipients.
Post-Contract Follow Up Services
We provide post-contract follow up services in order to coordinate the relationship between the elderly and the Service Recipients, and we also proactively ensure the services that the elderly provide meet the requirements set out in the contract with the Service Recipient.
We perform work matching based on the principle of “engage depending on talent”
Business/ Human Resources Training
Given that one of the objectives of ARE Wisdom is to pass down experience, we will organize seminars, workshops, sharing sessions and study tours from time to time with a view to enabling the elderly (Service Providers) and our Think Tank Advisers to provide business/ human resources training to the Service Recipients in order to strengthen the Service Recipients’ business knowledge and competitiveness.

Post-Contract Case Follow Up Services
Once an ordinary job agency has procured the signing of a contract, it will no longer follow up the case and the contracting parties are left to deal with their own cooperation relationship; when the relationship turns sour, the parties could be quite helpless and frustrated
Unlike ordinary job agencies, after procuring a contract be signed, we pay attention to whether the elderly adapt his new job and the cooperation relationship between the elderly and the Service Recipient
Therefore, we provide case follow up services in order to co-ordinate the relationship between the elderly and the Service Recipient and make efforts to protect the elderly’s legal rights, enabling them to have a pleasant work/service experience
