Some Employers Ill-Equipped To Handle Workers Issues

Webmaster, Earn Money Here!

KUALA LUMPUR: Though more than 90 per cent of workers in the nation are employed in small and medium sized industries, some employers are ill-equipped to handle workers issues.
Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam said some employers did not know how to recruit, retain staff or even on how to sack workers.

“They need proper education on how to manage the various functions of an organisation.”
Speaking to the press after opening the Telekom Malaysia’s group human capital management open day at Menara Telekom here today, he said the government hoped to help the SMEs through the setting up of the National Human Resources Management Centre.
He said the centre would help optimise an organisation through its various services and it was expected to be set up by the year-end.

Dr Subramaniam said the centre would be placed under the Human Resources Development Board.
“The centre will help SMEs to manage their human resources at an optimal level and reduce conflicts at the workplace.

“It will also increase productivity and enhance their workforce to a higher level via training.”
He said basic services would be free for the SMEs and a fee would be charged for other specific matters that required the involvement of experts.
Dr Subramaniam also reminded employers that times have changed and the era of looking down on employees was gone.

He said employees needed to be respected and given their due recognition, which will then boost productivity and morale.

The two-day event with the tagline “Enabling your Success” at the Telekom headquarters is packed with talks, informational booths and games.

Among the activities lined up for the staff include talks on health and welfare, free health check-ups and a blood donation drive.
