Since its inaugural launch two years ago, the Life at Work Awards recognises and celebrates women-friendly employers with leading workplace strategies that demonstrate drive, commitment and tenacity to champion the diversity and inclusion agenda.
As the boundary between home and work blurs, there is a growing need to achieve work-life effectiveness for better productivity and business sense. The Awards calls upon employers to step forward and share their workplace practices that enable their employees to achieve work-life integration.
Datuk Seri Idris Jala, CEO, Performance Management and Delivery Unit (Pemandu)
“Diversity and inclusion are some of the fundamental values that correlate with improved business performance. I am confident that our Life at Work Award winners are not only employers of choice for talent but also high-performing organisations. I call on more Malaysian employers to champion progressive workplace strategies, to attract and retain quality talent, in addition to ultimately strengthen Malaysia’s competitiveness.”
