AXA Study: 1 out of 5 people in Hong Kong feel they are flourishing

Employees working for companies which actively promote workplace wellbeing are 3.5 times more likely to flourish HONG KONG, March 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- AXA Hong Kong and Macau ("AXA") today announced the findings of the annual AXA Study of Mind Health and Wellbeing 2023 (the Study) which assessed the state of mind health[1] across the globe. The Study indicates a slight improvement in mind health in Hong Kong with 20% of the respondents claiming that they are flourishing, an increase of 3 percentage points year-on-year, from 17% in 2022. (From left) Sally Wan, Chief Executive Officer, AXA Greater China and Andrea Wong, Chief Marketing and Customer Officer, AXA Hong Kong and Macau The global AXA Mind Health Study is part of AXA's continued efforts to promote holistic health and combat the stigma surrounding mental illness. By measuring the mental welling of people across the globe, the Study aims to identify people's mind health and wellness issues and what can be done to help them improve the conditions. Among the 2,336 people surveyed in Hong Kong, 72% has experienced moderate to extremely severe stress in the past 12 months. However, majority (61%) chose to self manage the stress symptoms or not manage them, while only 39% sought professional or other help. There is room for improvement in stress management, as only 38% of the respondents said their conditions were well-managed. Sally Wan, Chief Executive Officer, AXA Greater China, said, "The COVID pandemic has been a wake-up call to all of us to pay more attention not only to our physical but also to our mental health. As we are adapting to the post-pandemic life, it is more important than ever to rebuild and strengthen our mind health and pursue holistic wellness." Six factors that increase the likelihood of flourishing and productivity in workplace The Study revealed that 70% of the respondents are employed, but only 17% of those are flourishing at workplace. Having long working hours and experiencing work stress are common in Hong Kong. Only 53% of the respondents felt that they have control over their workload and 37% were able to strike a work-life balance. There is clearly room for improvement in workplace wellbeing. With an aim to understand how to better support the working population, the Study has identified six factors that are key to promote mental wellbeing in the workplace: Mental health support by employers: employers are uniquely placed to promote mind health among their staff. Employees who work at companies that provide mental health support are more productive and are 3.5 times more likely to be flourishing than those without access to support. Hybrid work mode: 43% of respondents said that there is no difference in productivity between working home and the office, while 24% is likely to be flourishing if they are working in hybrid mode, compared to those who work exclusively from office (17%). The ability to be flexible in work location would provide employees with a sense of belonging and inclusion. Control over workload: If employees feel they have sufficient control over their workload, their likelihood of flourishing would increase from 4% to 26%. Strong skill or job matching: Employees' likelihood of flourishing increases from 3% to 26% if their skills match the work they are being asked to do. Clear goals and expectations: If employers set clear goals and expectations, the likelihood of employees flourishing increases from 6% to 25%. Skill development support: Employees working for companies which support employees to develop skills and to support career progression are 7.5 times more likely to be flourishing. If all these six workplace factors are implemented, the likelihood of flourishing for Hong Kong employees would increase from 17% to 52%, indicating that employees are 3 times more likely to be flourishing. A strong and positive correlation between mental wellbeing, productivity and job retention While talent retention remains a challenge for most employers, the study shows that over 80% of employees who are flourishing do not intend to leave their jobs in the near future, or even do not have intention to leave at all. It is clear that there is a close link between employees' mind health, productivity and job retention. Sally Wan, Chief Executive Officer, AXA Greater China, said, "As a strong advocate of mind health, our annual Study provides us with valuable insights into what we can do to help individuals as well as the community as a whole to flourish. At AXA, we have been playing a leading and active role in bringing a wide range of mind health programmes and services to empower people to live a better life." AXA is the first insurer in Hong Kong to include mental wellness in its Employee Benefits plans and introduce "Mind Health" programme - an employee mental health care scheme for its corporate customers. The company has also launched a series of mind health initiatives in Hong Kong including the annual AXA BetterMe event, and the Mind Healer and the Mind Charger services on the "EMMA by AXA" mobile app, supporting customers in building up resilience and practicing mindfulness. [1] The report uses the term mind health rather than mental health to emphasise the positive objective of the study which is to help break down the stigma still associated with mental illness.

Machine Tool Market to Reach US$245 Billion in 2032 with New, Digitally Focused, Machine Tools Incentivizing Upgrades

LONDON, March 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The machine tool manufacturing industry is facing a transformative decade, and as manufacturers' needs are more digitally focused, machine tool builders must evolve their products to meet changing market requirements. According to global technology intelligence firm ABI Research, the machine tool market will grow by a CAGR of 4.3% from 2022 to 2032 and reach US$245.2 billion in manufacturing value added. "This is driven by new product design facilitating the need for new machine tools, old equipment reaching the end of its lifecycle and requiring replacement, and new machine tool solutions being provided and incentivizing upgrades," explains James Prestwood, Industrial and Manufacturing Research Analyst at ABI Research. The overriding challenge for machine tool builders is the split attitude about digital transformation within the industry, with a climate of complacency being propagated by machine tool builders, particularly within the United States, who, due to their long histories with customers, have taken a reserved approach to innovation. In the long run, companies like Hardinge and Hurco will lose market share to more forward-thinking firms like EMAG and Makino. Machine tool manufacturers, such as DMG MORI, GROB, and Gleason Corporation, now realize that more than simply providing the hardware is needed to remain competitive. Prestwood points out that "Further challenges simmer under the surface with manufacturers struggling to manage legacy equipment lifecycles and overcome uncertainty around cloud usage on the factory floor, whereas machine tool builders have to contend with redesigning their go-to-market structure away from being product-oriented to a new solution-focused design." Digital transformation in the machine tool industry is manifesting in three mains ways: improved data coherence and availability for digital twin enablement, software integration and support for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) use cases, including Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) optimization, and faster time-to-value by providing turnkey solutions that scale up or down based on demand. "To keep driving digital transformation to machine tools in production processes, machine builders should be adopting solution-based business models, technology vendors must act as the technical bridge between the old and new forms of manufacturing, and manufacturers should invest in new machines and work with vendors championing open and connected ecosystems," Prestwood recommends. These findings are from ABI Research's Digital Transformation in the Metalworking and Machine Tool Industry technology analysis report. This report is part of the company's Industrial and Manufacturing Technologies research service, which includes research, data, and ABI Insights. Based on extensive primary interviews, Technology Analysis reports present in-depth analysis on key market trends and factors for a specific technology.  About ABI Research ABI Research is a global technology intelligence firm delivering actionable research and strategic guidance to technology leaders, innovators, and decision makers around the world.

Improvements being made to nation's water quality

BEIJING, March 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- A news report from chinadaily.com.cn: China made marked progress in controlling water pollution last year, with discharges of major water pollutants continuing to decline, according to the Ministry of Ecology and Environment. China saw 87.9 percent of its surface water rated as being of fairly good quality last year, up by 3 percentage points from 2021, said Huang Xiaozeng, head of the ministry's department of water ecology and environment. The quality of about 0.7 percent of the country's surface water remained below Grade V, the worst quality, down by 0.5 percentage points. Under China's six-tier quality system for surface water, the quality of water is considered as being fairly good if it reaches Grade III and above. The quality of water in the trunk of the Yangtze River, Asia's longest watercourse, has stayed at Grade II for three straight years, Huang continued. In the entire Yangtze basin, he said, 98.1 percent of national monitoring stations reported fairly good water quality last year, up by 1 percentage point year-on-year. The achievements occurred thanks to a series of actions the country has taken in the basin. The ministry has located over 60,000 sewage outlets that discharge into the Yangtze trunk, nine of its major tributaries and Taihu Lake, he said. To date, it has found the sources of sewage in 90 percent of the outlets and addressed violations in more than 20,000 of them. Measures were also rolled out to ramp up the treatment of wastewater in industrial parks, as well as to enhance the management of tailings ponds in mines and the phosphorus sector, he said. Rectification, for example, has been completed in 843 of the total 1,137 tailings ponds found with violations in the Yangtze basin. "We will keep a close eye on the rest of the ponds with violations to ensure that all of them will be adequately rectified," he said. Despite the progress, he said there are still some lingering problems in the Yangtze basin. Due to the lack of a sound cross-department coordination mechanism, for instance, little synergy has been created as different government bodies strive to beef up Yangtze conservation, he noted. Still troubled by the bloom of blue-green algae, he said, some key lakes in the Yangtze basin are yet to see the natural balance of their water ecosystems restored. Huang has also highlighted the ministry's efforts to address black and odorous water bodies as an environmental problem on people's doorsteps that affect their vital interests. In 2022, 40 percent of such water bodies in county-level cities across the country were improved, he said, without disclosing the total number of such water bodies in these cities. He said the ministry will resort to satellite remote sensing and unannounced visits to enhance its supervision over the treatment work of local governments. For those cities with poor performances in collecting wastewater for disposal or direct wastewater discharge, the ministry will notify them with warning letters and also ask local provincial authorities to better play their roles in guiding them in the treatment work. "We will also enhance information disclosure. We established a good mechanism to make public information concerning the treatment of black and odorous water bodies. We will further improve the mechanism to facilitate public supervision," he said.

Alphamab Oncology Announces the First Patient Dosed in the Phase I Trial of Anti-HER2 bispecific ADC JSKN003

SUZHOU, China, March 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Alphamab Oncology (stock code: 9966.HK) announced that the first patient has been dosed with 2.1mg/kg in a Phase I clinical study (JSKN003-102) of JSKN003, an Anti-HER2 bispecific ADC. ADC drugs have the advantages of highly specific targeting of antibody and anti cancer activity of cytotoxin. ADC shave developed rapidly as tumor therapeutics in recent years. Optimizing tumor specificity, linker conjugation chemistry together with improving in vivo stability are the focus of ADC development. JSKN003 is an ADC based on Her2 bispecific antibody KN026. Through enzymatic catalyzed reaction and click chemistry, the payloads are linked to precisely controlled glycan on Fc, when make consistant DAR value close to 4. The better serum stability of JSKN003 ensures much wider therapeutic window. For example, JSKN003 shows better safety profile in preclinical study and comparable tumor killing activity with Enhertu (DS-8201) in both high and low HER2 expression tumor models(CDX+PDX model). JSKN003 was approved by the Bellberry Human Research Ethics Committee in Australia(JSKN003-001), and the first patient was dosed in September 2022. At present, JSKN003-001 is ongoing smoothly at dose escalation stage, and currently at 5.2mg/Kg level. In October 2022, JSKN003 was approved for Phase I clinical trial by the Center for Drug Evaluation (CDE) of the China National Medical Products Administration. JSKN003-102 is a Phase Ia/Ib clinical trial in Chinese patients with HER2-expressing advanced solid tumors to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic and anti tumor activity of JSKN003. JSKN003-102 trial and ongoing JSKN003-101 complement with each other, laying the foundation for the global development of JSKN003. About JSKN003 JSKN003 is an anti-HER2 bispecific antibody-drug conjugate (ADC), which is developed inhouse with proprietary Glycan-specific conjugation platform. JSKN003 targets HER2 and triggers a signal in the tumor cell, which then internalizes the antibody together with the payload. After internalization, the cytotoxic drug is released and kills the tumor cells. Compared other ADC drugs, JSKN003 induce faster and more intense endocytosis, which leads to stronger bystander effect in HER2-expressing tumors. Meanwhile the better serum stability ensures much wider therapeutic window. JSKN003 is currently undergoing phase I clinical research in China  and  Australia.

Dynata's new Global Consumer Trends survey: 42% of people optimistic about 2023, despite inflation and higher numbers struggling to make ends meet and reduce debt

Data reveals self-reported mental health trending more positively around the world, despite younger generations' financial hardship worsening compared to summer 2022 DALLAS, March 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynata, the world's largest first-party data company for insights, activation and measurement, today released its latest Global Consumer Trends survey, which explores the attitudes and behaviors of 11,000 people across 11 countries, aiming to better understand how evolving economic and social factors are impacting consumers across the world. This installment of the research series focuses on people's feelings about the year ahead, their personal finances and mental health. A deeper dive into all key findings, including country- and demographic-specific data, is illustrated in more detail in the infographics below. Full data tables are also available.  2023 OUTLOOK  Globally, people are more optimistic (42%) than pessimistic (34%) about the year ahead. Optimism is highest in China (76%), the United States (49%), Australia (47%) and Canada (46%). In the U.S., 26% are '"very optimistic," compared to France (9%), Netherlands (8%) and Italy (7%). Gen Z (60%) and Millennials (52%) feel more optimistic than Gen X (36%) and Baby Boomers (28%). Inflation is the No. 1 concern for consumers globally and across all age groups — except in China, where consumers are worried most about the ongoing impacts of COVID-19. Younger generations worry more than older generations about unemployment (41% of Gen Z vs. just one in five Baby Boomers), gender equality (36% of Gen Z vs. 17% of Baby Boomers) and LGBTQ+ rights (29% of Gen Z vs. 13% of Baby Boomers). PERSONAL FINANCES  Globally, more than six in 10 people (61%) say their personal finances have changed during the past year — and of those, more are likely to say their finances have worsened (33%) than improved (28%). Across the world, an increasing proportion of consumers are struggling to make ends meet — and more are falling into debt. The percentages of those who agree with these statements increased in every country between August 2022 and January 2023. People in the U.S. (48%), Japan (47%), Australia (44%) and Spain (43%) were most likely to be struggling to make ends meet as the year began. Gen Z, Millennials and Gen X are experiencing more financial hardship than Baby Boomers — and at higher levels than last summer. MENTAL HEALTH  Half of people globally (49%) say their mental health has changed since before the pandemic. Of those: Slightly more people self-report feeling better (26%) than worse off (23%) mentally, with the most positive improvements found in China (59%), the U.S. (34%) and Canada (28%). Financial problems (43%) are the top-cited factor globally for those whose mental health has declined — including by more than half of consumers in the U.S. and Spain (both 53%), and Australia (52%). Talking about mental health was once considered taboo. Now, half of people globally (50%) are comfortable discussing it openly. The highest figures are found in China (61%), the U.K. and U.S. (both 58%). Compared to 2019, women of all ages (26%) report worse mental health than men (19%).
