With over 8,500 employees across the Group, all of our hiring policies are compliant with local and international labour regulations. We do not tolerate the use of child labour or forced labour in all of our operations and all of our third parties who had business with us are subject to applicable regulations and policies.
We practice non-discriminatory hiring policy and all our employees are strictly hired based on their capability and expertise. Based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 60% of our employees are Malaysian. However, we aim to provide competitive local employment opportunities in the countries we are operating in.
In order to ensure our competitiveness in attracting external talents, a benchmarking study on the Group’s remuneration package is conducted on yearly basis. Our employees are fairly compensated based on the remuneration structures, in compliance with the Minimum Wage Order 2016 that has been set by the Malaysian government.
Approximately, 10% of our employees belong to industry-related unions. Regular engagement sessions between the Management and these unions are held to discuss on the current requirements and any other issues raised by the employees. The Collective Agreement between Management and unionised employees are also subject to periodic review and renegotiations.
At MISC, we believe that having a formal channel for grievances is very important. We have multiple channels in place within the Group to address any concerns raised by the employees.
On top of that, we have established a Whistleblowing Policy and procedures for issues to be conveyed in a strictly confidential manner.
