Why do we have to track the number of hours? 

  1. The purpose of tracking work hours goes beyond simply knowing the average salary. It's essential to understand the specific areas of clinical work that our members are focusing on for various reasons. Firstly, it provides valuable insights into the professional growth and development of our members. By logging the areas of work we have concentrated on, we can objectively assess our progress and identify areas for improvement. These recorded numbers serve as concrete evidence of our personal and professional growth.

  2. Looking ahead to the possibility of HKMTA becoming an NGO, the data we gather now becomes even more valuable. We can leverage this comprehensive dataset to support research funding applications and other initiatives. The information we collect today can contribute to the organization's success and potential future endeavors.

  3. To achieve these goals, it's important to raise awareness among our members about the significance of tracking work-related activities. By emphasising the importance of this information, we hope to encourage our members to start documenting their work hours and focusing areas now. By doing so, they actively contribute to their own professional growth and help build a robust dataset for the organisations future endeavours.

Why do we need to know about our members' salary?

  1. To understand the demographics of their membership: By collecting data on members' salaries, associations can gain a better understanding of the age, gender, and socio-economic status of their members. This information can help them tailor their services and programs to meet the needs of their members.

  2. To identify trends and patterns: Collecting salary data can help associations identify trends and patterns in the industry or profession they represent. This information can be used to advocate for better working conditions, salaries, and benefits for their members.

  3. To provide benchmarking data: Associations can use salary data to provide benchmarking data for their members. This can help members compare their salaries to industry standards and identify areas where they may need to negotiate for better pay.

  4. To offer career development resources: Associations may use salary data to offer career development resources and advice to their members. By understanding the average salary ranges for different positions and industries, associations can provide guidance on career pathing, professional development, and networking opportunities.

  5. To advocate for policy changes: Associations may use salary data to advocate for policy changes that benefit their members. For example, if the data shows that members are earning lower salaries than industry standards, the association may advocate for higher pay or better benefits.

  6. To attract and retain members: By collecting salary data, associations can demonstrate their commitment to advocating for their members' interests and providing valuable resources. This can help attract new members and retain existing ones.
