HR Summit: Industry Growth of Human Talent in Iskandar Malaysia

26 November, Johor Bahru - It’s hard to think of an important aspect of management more neglected than development planning: helping your employees shape the future direction of their careers.  Yet for a variety of reasons, this valuable activity is often ignored or handled as an administrative exercise. Result, companies pay a high price for the loss of top young talent.

Management is said didn’t spend as much time as they should have on the development of their own employees.  Or if they did spend some time, but in retrospect they were not as consistent and thorough as it should have been. 

PSMB in collaboration with Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) had organised HR Summit: Industry Drives Growth of Human Talent in Iskandar Malaysia in Johor Bahru, Johor as a platform to foster and sustain effective partnerships between Human Resource practitioners across Iskandar Malaysia to collectively address the human capital challenges faced in the region.  

The HR Summit was carried out to address and understand human capital challenges and requirement as to strengthening the initiatives and intervention in human capital development within Iskandar Malaysia. It is acts as a medium to share human resource best practice and build network among HR practitioners and key industry players.

HR Summit: Industry Drives Growth of Human Talent in Iskandar Malaysia received tremendous response from the participants.

Furthermore this event is the best platform for participants not just to network among experts, but also to gain intellectual agility and insights of the latest trends in Human Resource Development.

Welcoming remarks was delivered by Yang Berbahagia Dato’ Benjamin Hj. Hasbie, Federal Commissioner of IRDA and officiated by Yang Berbahagia Dato’ Dr. Abdul Razak bin Abdul, Chairman of PSMB. The PSMB’s management was also present in support of the event.    

The papers were presented by Mr. Zuber bin Mohd Isa, President of BriTay Asian International Human Resource Consulting with “Retention Issue of Human Capital” issue and Mr. Rezal Rahman, Executive Director & Head of Strategic Planning, from Pinewood Iskandar Malaysia Studio with the topic, “Private Public Partnership in Developing Talent for New Industry”.

The participants were given the opportunity to interact with the panelist in the dialogue session to seek for ideas, insights and to voice their concern regarding human talent issues. The panelists were Mr. Amir Omar, Director of ILMIA, Ministry of Human Resources (MOHR), Mr. Vignaeswaran, Deputy Chief Executive of PSMB and Mr. Azman Mohd. Hussein, Director of Human Capital Management, Medini Iskandar Malaysia Sdn. Bhd

FOCUS:  Human talent development helps builds loyalty, and loyalty increases productivity.

In conclusion, taking an honest interest in someone builds loyalty.  Loyal employees are more engaged.  Engaged employees are more productive. This is because good talented people naturally want to advance, and appreciate meaningful support in the process.  They want to gain skills.  They want to become more versatile and valuable to an organisation.  Who doesn’t appreciate thoughtful support that helps you advance your own career?   But the flip side is if one company doesn’t provide it, enterprising employees will go elsewhere for it.

One final thought, development planning doesn’t have to be elaborate or costly.  At its core it’s mostly a matter of good managers taking the person-to-person time to understand their employees, recognising their skills and needs and guide them to fill in the gaps.

NHRC Goes East Coast
Via JPP Seminar on Productivity Linked Wage System (PLWS)

Kuantan, 26 November - The relationship between wages and productivity or more specifically, the relationship between wage and productivity growth has become significant policy relevance in recent years.

Throughout the nation, a series of Productivity Linked Wage System or in short PLWS awareness programme were conducted by the Department of Industrial Relations (JPP) in order to channel all necessary ideas and input of PLWS to organisations in Malaysia. This seminar is an essential platform to introduce what PLWS is all about and to strengthen the message across the country, JPP has invited NHRC to deliver the briefing and to open up a booth in the event.

PLWS is a system which establishes the link between wages and productivity. The system will ensure that wage increases commensurate with higher productivity, thus enhancing competitiveness at the organisation level. It will also enable employers to develop a wider and systematic approach towards improving productivity and wages, through active involvement and co-operation of all employees.

It is important to instill the realisation to employers that PLWS has a positive effect on employees. Employees are encouraged to be more productive, and perform better, knowing that they will be able to receive a fair share of the gains through their efforts. It is a win - win situation for both employers and employees as both works together to enhance performance of the organisation.

But one must bear in mind that it should takes the top management commitment to ensure support and confidence in employees of the new system. Employees must also be provided with the necessary information and knowledge so that they will be receptive of the system while employers must be willing to coach and emplace productivity improvement programmes.

Consideration for workers likelihood and welfare is an important criteria when implementing PLWS. This will ensure that workers basic needs are not compromised. We must also realise that collaborative efforts by both employer and employee is core to developing a measurement system that is fair and equitable as to avoid misconception about the system.

Communication channels need to be put in place to keep employees informed of the development and to obtain feedback and suggestions for improvement. In short PLWS enabling companies need to adjust their policies according to the current economic situation, improving job specialisation according to skills and enhancing the career of employees and hopefully increasing employees’ motivation and job satisfaction.
