Because of Belief, Out of Passion

To build a great enterprise, you must be brave to create a great dream, and the bravery will contain talent, energy and wonder.
——Pour Your Heart Into It by Howard Schultz
From June 16th to June 18th of 2023, organized by Tiger-silent Academy, the 8th cadre culture convergency training of Milkyway Group was held in Qingpu, Shanghai. Although facing a period of cyclical economic downturn, Milkyway insists on long-termism and holding cultural training as scheduled no matter how hard the road ahead may be, unifying beliefs and investing in the future.
A strong group of lecturers and tutors was arranged for the training, including Chairman Andy Chen (Yinhe Chen), Vice Presidents Cindy Ding (Huiya Ding), Yi Hua, Rachel Miao (Leimin Miao), Sai Peng and Zhuorong Liu, Assistant Presidents Justin Jia (Jian Jia) and Joy Zhou (Ying Zhou), BU General Managers Lisa Qi (Xia Qi), Allen Shi (Xu Shi), Sara Wang (Min Wang) as well as the HRBP group.
Nothing but enthusiasm brightens up the endless years.
Nothing but passion stands the test of distance.
Mr. Andy Chen, the founder and Chairman of Milkyway, shared his opinions of culture “With great faith, I have been working hard at the field of chemical supply chain for 25 years. During such a long period, lots of things have aroused my interests, however, there is only one thing that has been never changed—my career，Milkyway. It is the sincere passion that makes me persist till now, drive me to work overtime day after day, year after year. Once you have a belief, stick to it for life!
“We will always remember the goal we set when depart. Focus on the main channel and all in. Trust each other and face the difficulties!”
Fight and win together.
Teamwork lets every group find the correct way and achieve goals. Although there were disputes and doubts on the way forward, the participants ultimately chose to trust each other, gave play to their own advantages and reached the end line.
The light in eyes dispels the darkness of the night.
The fire in hearts lights up the way forward.
Eight groups shared the stories that happened in Milkyway in their unique way. They strived in each day’s hard work and gained progress in the meantime. There was touching and laughter. All the plain unvarnished tales empower Milkyway’s future and all the little things build the foundation of Milkyway.Ordinary people accomplish unordinary careers!
“Sincerity is the longest-standing expression of love. The member of Gourp 8, Chuanbo Shi, is a cadre who has been promoted at the grassroots level. Chuanbo shared his experience that worked from a forklift operator to an administrator in the past 13 years. With no fancy and pretentious rhetoric, his down-to-earth efforts greatly impressed me.”, one of the participants stated.
Breakthrough in resistance.
Offense is the best defense.
As one of the highlights, the Epee Fencing Competition kicked off the culture training. Contestants test their minds, seek breakthroughs under pressure and seize offensive opportunities in the competition. Offense ignites hope in darkness time and time again; Offense germinates the seeds and beliefs make miracles happen. Milkyway will never ever give up!
Cadre Culture Convergency Training pulls everyone together
Milkywayers always struggle and fight together
After the pledge slogan “Milkyway, Win, Win, Win! Never stop fighting until life stops!” resounded in the air, hundreds of Milkywayers met the challenge together and beat the drum with a ball 25 times continuously to salute and celebrate Milkyway’s 25th birthday! Hundreds of people made concerted efforts to complete the challenge and a united heart and mind can turn decayed for magical. The song “A Full Bloom” sung by everyone at the scene together revealed that in terms of Milkyway, there was neither uncertainty nor confusion, but the power to break through every difficulty, like a phoenix reborn in the fire, will eventually fly in a broader sky!
Walk to the end of the water
Sit and watch the clouds rise
With excellent organizing capacity, all-out enthusiasm and energetic creativity, Group 2 eventually won first place at the training and was awarded as the “Winner Team”. Only one week before the start date of the training, members of Group 2 changed unexpectedly which disrupted the rhythm of their arrangements. Even so, Group 2 then quickly adjusted the strategy. Members who worked at Jinqiao Headquarter had lunch together, briefly got familiar with each other’s advantages and disadvantages, exchanged opinions on tasks preparation and then broke down the tasks to the remaining members whose working places were outside Shanghai. As a result, every group member had the best presentation and completed a journey of mutual achievement.The slogan “Let us guard Milkyway!” also expressed every Milkywayer’s feeling.
Change is the eternal theme and unchanged is the temporary strategy. With years of deep plowing in the main channel and years of investment in talent training, Milkyway has the wisdom and ability to “swim in the deep sea and cross the shore” in the turbulent waves.
The brightest star in the night sky
Light my way ahead
Given the “excellent leadership, good affinity, great temperament and commitment”, Mr. James Zhuang（Rui Zhuang）, the General Manager of Special Care Chemicals BU, was selected by all the participants as the Star Member. The song “Maybe” recomposed by James expressed every Milkywayer’s feelings. It is for all the hardworking Milkywayers, who keep pushing on in the darkness. Partial lyrics are as follows:
At Jinqiao office, the light is always lit up.
At Nanhui Base, vehicles are constantly moving in and out.
At Yantai Industrial Park, heavy rain is always running.
In Ningbo, the containers are accompanied by sirens.
Steps may be firm through uncertainty.
Earnest love may be hidden behind setbacks.
We may have to struggle to move forward on the way to growth.
Maybe all the possibilities are from beliefs.
Maybe the most beautiful scenery is the youth with dreams.
Here comes the end of the 8th cadre culture convergency training of Milkyway Group and Milkyway is now stepping on a new journey. Carrying the hope and strength of 4000 employees, Milkyway is proceeding forward with love and without hesitation!
