We are dedicated to nurture the professional and personal growth of our employees through constructive social development projects, positive team-building activities and skill-enhancing training and education programmes. We continue to place significant emphasis in creating an inspiring, safe and healthy working environment for our employees and promote effective employee engagement at all levels.
The SDGs below are adopted towards creating an inspiring workplace at Malaysia Airports:
GOAL 5: Gender Equality
Ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making and eliminate all forms of discrimination against women everywhere to achieve gender equality and women empowerment.
GOAL 8: Decent Work And Economic Growth
Create decent work and economic growth to encourage policies that support productive activities, decent job creation, entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation.
GOAL 9: Industry, Innovation And Infrastructure
Develop sustainable and resilient infrastructure to promote economic development and human well-being and retrofit industries to make them sustainable with increased resource- use efficiency.
GOAL 16: Peace, Justice And Strong Institutions
Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
GOAL 17: Partnership For The Goals
Encourage and promote effective public, public-private and civil society partnerships, building on the experience and resourcing strategies of partnerships to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
We have implemented several initiatives and policies to support our commitment in creating an inspiring workplace:
Health, Safety and Wellbeing
We place great importance on occupational safety and health (OSH) and the wellbeing of our employees by having various engagement methods and regular training to increase employee awareness while providing conducive and safe working places. Additionally, wellness programmes are conducted annually to encourage health consciousness among employees.
Workplace Strength and Diversity
We recognise that sustained growth and value creation are dependent on the diversity and strength of our workforce. We continue to provide equal opportunities for all and do not tolerate any discrimination based on gender, age, religion, ethnicity and physical disabilities.
We support the need of female employees through various policies such as having allocated parking spaces for pregnant ladies and establishing a child-care centre and kindergarten within the corporate office.
Employee Retention and Turnover
We are committed in building the country’s economy through skilled and competent local talents that are on par with their global counterparts. Most of our recent new hires are from ‘below 30’ age bracket reflecting our efforts in recruiting talented and skilful Malaysian youths.
Employee Remuneration and Benefits
The standard entry-level wage offered to our employees is 20% higher from what is stipulated by Malaysia’s Minimum Wages Order 2016 apart from employees bonuses, medical coverage, insurance benefits and the employee provident fund scheme.
We also provide financial assistance, medical and numerous other benefits to eligible and permanent employees which have proven to be a key factor in retaining talent at Malaysia Airports.
Employee feedback is important to us. We conduct the Employee Engagement Survey through an independent third party on a regular basis to gauge our annual engagement level.
Through the outcomes of the survey and regular engagement sessions, we strive to constantly offer an improved work environment and incentives to motivate our employees towards productivity and increased satisfaction.
Opportunities for Training and Skills Development
Enriching training programmes are conducted regularly to strengthen employees’ competency, increase skills development and opportunities to fulfil to their potential. Performance appraisals are yet another important aspect of career development and sustainable growth.
Increasing Employment Opportunities
We aspire to improve the employment levels and provide a self-development platform for young graduates. This is evident through our involvement in the Professional Training and Education for Growing Entrepreneurs (PROTÉGÉ) programme (previously known as the Skim Latihan 1Malaysia or SL1M programme) that focuses on improving employability and inculcating entrepreneurship spirits amongst youths through industrial partnerships. We also provide internship opportunities to talented students pursuing their tertiary education locally or internationally.
Enhancing Workplace Ethics and Integrity
We recognise that integrity is the foundation on which our business practices and conduct must be built upon. Our Code of Ethics and Conduct, Fraud Policy, Gift Policy, Anti-Corruption Policy Statement and other guidelines are in place to ensure good governance, ethical business practices and the creation of a fair and transparent workplace.
We also have in place a Whistleblowing Policy to allow our employees and our stakeholders to report on any suspected wrongdoings, malpractices or any unethical or unlawful conduct in any aspects of our business. Our employees have pledged to conduct themselves with complete professionalism, integrity and in the spirit of the Code of Ethics and Conduct at all times.
