YCP UK is delighted to hear that Jingjie Xu, YCP Student Committee Member 2020 has been nominated and shortlisted for HR Graduate of the Year 2021 for her assistance to setting up the UKFCP's national support centre during the Covid-19 pandemic. The Scotland's top HR award ceremony organised by the Hr NETWORK National Awards took place in Glasgow in November 2021.
Jingjie has joined YCP Ambassador Programme in 2020 at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. Together with her other fellow committee members, they have been pursuing great efforts in assisting local communities from preparing health and safety awareness flyer to sending out personal protective equipments to care homes.
Despite busy studies, the student committee has been one of the earliest groups to have come up with a list of HR supportive Covid-19 oriented topics for their academic dissertations, in addition to being instrumental to the early phase of the first national support centre for East and Southeast Asian communities in the UK. Jingjie's work has been noticed and she was subsequently nominated for the top award.
''Throughout my participating in the centre setup, we have also secured partnerships with local community centres, updated our communities on the latest health protection from the Scottish Government, helped create the centre video by explaining our work for the communities, coordinated within our student committee on our combating Covid-19 project, and prepared reports on our progress.''
Although Jingjie was not chosen for the award in the end, she said she is still concerned about the impact of the pandemic on communities. She feels she has the responsibility to help whenever she sees people who need help. The YCP experience has helped Jingjie grew and she now works at one of the largest American Headhunting Companies in Shanghai.
Our congratulations to Jingjie and wish she continues to do more good in the HR sector.
