Hong Kong Most Admired Knowledge Enterprise (MAKE) Award focused at the regional/national level has been introduced in Asia, Europe, America, Brazil, Indonesia, Iran and Russia. The Knowledge Management and Innovation Research Centre of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University started this MAKE Award in Hong Kong since 2008 and also extended the Award to Mainland China in 2011. The purpose of this award is not just to acknowledge the commitment in Knowledge Management (KM), but also to bring public recognition to those organisations that have achieved outstanding performance in KM practices. Over the years, the Award won the continuous support from The Intellectual Property Department of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region; professional, business and industrial associations. Organisations from different sectors including government, public utilities, construction, catering services, hotel, manufacturing, accounting, pharmacy, telecommunication and NGO, etc. joined the Hong Kong MAKE Award.
This award provides public recognition for the winners with a strong commitment in the implementation of Knowledge Management.
In the process of preparing for submission, it helps the organisation to identify its strengths and areas for improvement in Knowledge Management. Furthermore, the internal analysis and external feedback from the MAKE evaluation panel, which consists of the most experienced KM experts, can benefit strategic planning on process improvement of the organisation's KM activities.
This award can raise the level of management's commitment and engagement in good KM practices, as well as boost the confidence of the staff through formal recognition for their efforts and achievements.
The Top 3 Winners of the Hong Kong MAKE Award 2016 will automatically be qualified to be finalists of the Asian MAKE Award 2016, which is a higher level of Teleos' MAKE Award for the Asian Organisations.

The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.
