Hap Seng Group believes that its employees are its core asset, and the success and failure of the company depends very much on its human capital management processes.
In its passion for positive change, Hap Seng Group has put in place forward looking and result-based training programmes aimed at steering the Group towards a high performance culture. It also believes in ensuring that the welfare of its employees is looked after.
In 2015, Hap Seng Group facilitated the establishment of the Corporate Office Safety Committee comprising representatives from all divisions and departments that are housed in the corporate office – Menara Hap Seng.
A totally new initiative, the focus was to build capacity in safety, health and environment (SHE) and at the same time, create fellowship amongst colleagues. The following initiatives were conducted by the committee:
- Surviving the Urban Jungle
- OSH Awareness Programme
- Intelligent Defensive Driving Course for employees
- Creating A Safe Workplace
“It is good to realise that if love and peace can prevail on earth, and if we can teach our children to honor nature’s gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be here forever.” – Jimmy Carter
Malaysians produced 23,000 tonnes of waste daily in 2008 (source : Global Environment Centre (GEC)). By 2020, it was estimated that 30,000 tonnes would be produced daily but we have reached this figure in 2013. This waste has to go somewhere and landfills are being created or widen due to its increase. While eliminating waste from our houses is hard, we can all do something to mitigate the amount of waste produced.
Hap Seng Land CSR organised Recycle for Tomorrow campaign together with Pertubuhan Amal Seri Sinar Kuala Lumpur & Selangor (P.A.S.S.), a local NGO focused on recycling efforts. This is a small effort that can be easily be done by our community, to reduce our own impact to the environment.
The campaign was held from 7th March 2016 to 7th June 2016. By the end of the campaign, P.A.S.S.’ recycle box placed at the @ Ground floor between Menara Hap Seng and Menara Hap Seng 2 was almost full with various types of recycling items from wearable clothes, shoes, bags and toys to plastic, glass and newspapers. Recyclable items collected were sorted accordingly to its use and subsequently repaired/refurbished while scraps are sold. The proceeds are then donated to charities and various aids.
Hopefully this short demonstration will get everyone to continue ‘Reducing, Reusing and Recycling’ and collectively we reduce our carbon foot print for a better tomorrow.
Note: If you want to dispose bulky items including furniture, you may contact P.A.S.S. at 03 9021 1888 for pick up (within Klang Valley) to reduce, reuse and recycle.
