Mainetti (HK) Limited
Nurturing New Growth with Technology Training
"We need to evolve with customer and to help them go through the days in the new retail O2O environment with our end-to-end solutions."
-- Mr. Paul Tai, Regional Director
Mainetti (HK) believes people are the main assets of a company: the business will grow if the people grow. The company has devised the GROW model: First decide the Goal; then establish the current Reality; third explore the Options; and ﬁnally maintain the Will to commit to the growth journey.
On-the-job training is an integral GROW process for Mainetti. Recognising the importance of technology in its business, Mainetti partnered with GS1 Hong Kong on a series of RFID consultation and training sessions to build the staﬀ capacity. The trainings started in 2017, covering 7 regional oﬃces including Australia, South Korea, Hong Kong, Mainland China, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Vietnam, and has since expanded to European markets in the UK, Netherland and Italy in 2018.

The trainings focused on retail / logistics technology like barcode, RFID principles and implementation, with the course materials localised and ﬁne-tuned subject to the diﬀerences on technology adoption status, target audience (senior management / salespersons / designers), etc.
More than 150 staﬀ have attended the training since then. Equipped with the knowledge on RFID applications, Mainetti staﬀ are able to conﬁdently present new ideas that are based on RFID technology to their clients, for example NEXT and Chiho Environmental, to help them streamline their supply chain management. On the other hand, Mainetti designers are inspired to embody technology in the packaging solutions that look pleasing to customers with practical functionality.
The company’s GROW culture coupled with the trainings motivate employees to embrace future technology and:
- Stimulate new product / solution ideas that potentially help the company yield better margin;
- Cultivate a life-long learning environment across the company that supports its sustainable business growth.
