We aim to provide the resources our employees need to continually upgrade their competencies and performance. Our workers’ ambitions are our aspiration,” says Siti Hajar Mohd Dahlan, vice-president, human resources department.

Malakoff has long been renowned for their employee development programmes that enable their employees to either grow incrementally or accelerate them exponentially (their high potential programmes).  These programmes are highly experiential and forces “learning by doing”. Whilst teaching content is still an element in the various programmes, the key focus is on ensuring each of the Malakoff employees are constantly challenges and are learning in every situation.
