HOW DO WE DO IT?
TALENT MANAGEMENT & SUCCESSION PLANNING
PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Each year, we develop the potential of stand-out employees through JLP and AJLP. We also collaborate with the PUSPATRI, ILP Pasir Gudang as well as IKM Johor Bahru to conduct technical courses for our employees.
In addition, we encourage employees to pursue professional qualifications such as the ACCA, CIMA, MIA, Taxation, Certified Environmental Professional in Scheduled Waste Management (CePSWaM) and human resources certifications such as CAHRM and CHRO.
Through exposure to different roles, employees both deepen and broaden their knowledge and capabilities, thereby adding value to the organisation. Job rotation and generic training are provided to bridge the skills gaps of staff at all levels.
We review our Talent Development Programme regularly based on a clear understanding of the skills, behaviours and mindsets required to identify capability gaps and improvement opportunities for every level of our employees.
Then, instead of offering “one size fits all” training, we design talent development programmes based on a detailed analysis of the needs of individual talents.
Our Performance Management System (PMS) promotes a culture of achievement through incentives and rewards, and targets as a whole are reviewed and the bar is raised every year to continuously push for excellence.
We have instituted various platforms where Management can meet and share their views with the rest of our workforce with the Managing Director through employee engagement events and activities, Turun Padang sessions as well as communications via email, our intranet and a quarterly newsletter. We value our employees’ views and encourage open communication at all times.

HUMAN RIGHTS & LABOUR PRACTICES
We believe in treating all of our employees fairly and humanely, and we subscribe to Malaysia’s labour laws as well as the International Labour Organisation (ILO)’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.

Labour Transformation Project (LTP)
Kicked-off in January 2022 and targeted to be completed in 2024, its project implementation is in collaboration with Intercontinental Specialty Fats Sdn. Bhd. (ISF), Ferrero and Earthworm Foundation (EF).
Originally developed by EF, it is a response to the growing awareness of labour rights issues in the palm oil supply chain and aims to bridge any existing gaps between market demand and suppliers on the ground. The transformation work implemented together with JPB creates a window of opportunity to adapt to best practices and to gain recognition in setting a standard across the market.
