(NYSE: MOT) today announced that the company’s manufacturing site, Motorola Technology Sdn Bhd in Penang, Malaysia, has been conferred with the Human Resources Minister Award 2009 by the Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad (PSMB), a company under the Ministry of Human Resources, in conjunction with the recent PSMB 2009 Conference and Exhibition.
As the recipient of the highest Human Resources Minister Award in the Manufacturing Large Company category, Motorola has once again demonstrated the significance and depth of its long-term commitment to human capital development, since only organizations with a consistently outstanding record in their Human Resource Development (HRD) programs are honored with the award.
“We are very honored to receive this prestigious award,” said Mohd Rauf Nasir, country president, Motorola Malaysia. “At Motorola, we take a holistic approach in investing in people as a part of our commitment to nurturing local talents and contributing to the Malaysia’s development,”
Some highlights of Motorola’s HRD practices that set the company apart from other organizations include:
Motorola invests heavily and consistently in employee development.
Motorola has continually made significant contributions to the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF).
The company has invested an approximately RM1,700.00 per employee on training and development, equal to an average of 43 hours spent per employee per year.
Motorola also provides learning and development opportunities for employees to improve their technical skills and knowledge, leadership capabilities as well as to advance their career and professional development.
The company has encouraged and supported a total of 53 employees in the pursuit of their higher education, with the majority achieving post-graduate degrees in 2008.
“Here at Motorola, we will continue to support human capital development to uphold our position in being one of the world’s best employers,” Mohd Rauf added “Motorola has been a trusted technology leader, long-term investor and talent developer in Malaysia for 35 years and we have a responsibility to all communities in which we operate, so that all parties can derive positive outcomes in terms of commercial, economic, national and social benefits.”
Motorola continues to be active in engaging undergraduate students through partnership projects with local universities, such as the Inter-School and Inter-Varsity Engineering Challenge (ISEC & IVEC) organized by the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) and the National Research Innovation Competition (NRIC) by Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM).
The company also offers various educational awards for outstanding engineering students who excel in their studies, such as the annual Motorola Gold & Scholarships Awards, rewarding them with cash prizes and an internship program.
Mohd Rauf noted that Motorola’s partnership with Malaysian universities lies at the core of the company’s strategy. “Motorola believes that education remains a strong tenet in human talent development playing a crucial role in positioning the country for future success. Hence, the company will continue to collaborate with local universities to groom the right talents that would suit industry needs.”
