FGV Optimistic to Overcome Estates’ Labour Shortage

KUALA LUMPUR, 3 AUGUST 2017 – The intensive programme carried out by Felda Global Ventures Holdings Berhad (FGV) to overcome labour shortage at its plantations has seen positive results.

 

FGV Officer-In-Charge, Dato’ Khairil Anuar Aziz said, the programme is progressing smoothly and workers from Bangladesh and Indonesia have begun to arrive in stages this month to cover the current shortage of approximately  8,000 workers.

 

“To date, we have hired almost 600 foreign workers. Insya-Allah this labour shortage problem is being addressed immediately within the next few months. This is a top priority for FGV to ensure optimum production from our plantations,” said Dato’ Khairil.

 

He said FGV deeply appreciates the commitment and support rendered by the Government and staff of Ministry of Home Affairs, the Immigration Department, the Labour Department of Peninsular Malaysia, the Ministry of Human Resources and the Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities.

 

“Also, our utmost gratitude to the High Commission of Bangladesh, the Indonesian Embassy, the Malaysian High Commission in Bangladesh and the Malaysian Embassy in Indonesia for their strong commitment towards this effort.

 

“FGV will always ensure every entry process of its foreign workers is in compliance with both countries’ laws and policies. As a responsible company, we are also committed to the standards set by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) on the employment hiring process,” said Dato’ Khairil.

 

FGV operates over 450,000 hectares of plantations across the country including Sabah and Sarawak. The plantation sector contributes 70 percent towards the main source of FGV’s income, putting it amongst the world’s major crude palm oil producers.

 

The effort to strengthen the plantation workforce would positively impact the company and maximise returns to its shareholders including Felda settlers.

 

Dato’ Khairil adds, FGV is actively conducting Research and Development (R&D) for the plantation sector especially in the areas of mechanisation to ease the workload and efficiency of day-to-day operations.

 

“Work undertaken by plantation workers is now assisted by mechanical equipment as well as high tech machineries compared to the past, thus, FGV is also actively promoting this career opportunity amongst locals,” he said.

 

FGV has recently launched a nationwide recruitment drive to hire plantation workers and applications can be sent directly to FGV offices nearby or email to career@feldaglobal.com and for more information on career opportunities and open interview please visit FGV website at www.feldaglobal.com and Facebook www.facebook.com/feldaglobalofficial/.

FGV Opens Employment Opportunities in the Plantation Industry

 

KUALA LUMPUR 27 JULY 2017 – Felda Global Ventures Holdings Berhad (FGV) has embarked on a recruitment drive to recruit locals, especially the new generation of settlers for a career in the plantation industry in order to reduce dependence on foreign workers.

The recruitment drive was kicked off at the National Hari Peneroka Celebrations 2017 in Putrajaya recently where FGV had opened a recruitment booth for visitors. FGV’s recruitment drive will continue at FGV’s plantation offices in Bera Selatan 1, Bera (Pahang, August 8), Tun Razak Research Centre, Jengka (Pahang, August 10), Besout 7, Trolak (Perak, August 15) and Chiku 8, Chiku (Kelantan, August 17).

FGV’s Officer-in-Charge who is also a Felda settler’s son, Datuk Khairil Anuar Aziz, said the group is highly dependent foreign labor at more than 35,000 people across the country and there is still a need for more workers to ensure that daily operations run smoothly.

“It is not easy to remove the new generation’s negative perception towards a career in the plantation sector but, as a responsible company, FGV will remain committed to encourage and give priority to local people.

“Historically, Felda was established by locals to develop the jungle into a major commodity industry in Malaysia. We will continue to strive to increase the involvement of locals in the plantation sector by improving their career development packages as well as the best benefits,” he said.

Among the benefits offered are an attractive salary, incentive payments, EPF and SOCSO contributions, annual leave, medical, insurance and allowances to all eligible staff.

Apart from the plantation division, FGV also offer career opportunities for the new generation of settlers who are keen to join uniformed units through its subsidiary, Felda Securities Services Sdn. Bhd. that currently has 3,000 members, consisting largely of settlers’ children.

Dato’ Khairil added, “These efforts are part of the various activities and programmes planned for our corporate social responsibility (CSR) each year that provide direct benefits to the local community, especially FELDA settlers.

Applications can be sent directly to nearby FGV offices or emailed directly to career@feldaglobal.com. For more information on career opportunities and walk-in interview dates, please visit the FGV website at www.feldaglobal.com and Facebook at www.facebook.com/feldaglobalofficial/.
