SINGAPORE (10 February 2011) – What will drive business success in 2011? is the most popular question that CEOs, HR Directors and CITOs in HR from Asian Wall Street Journal’s most admired company list—as the global economy slowly rebounds and emerging markets are seen to carry much of the recovery—will address at the HR Talk Show, held 9 March 2011 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
2011 marks a critical period of Transformation for Malaysia—a quantum leap from the current US$7,000 per capita annual income to US$15,000, and a spate of debates has sprung recently on how best to approach the very ambitious transformation of Malaysia into a developed nation that would require Malaysia to grow by 8% per year during this decade. Reports mention that this level of growth will require major private investment from both domestic and foreign sources, resulting from confidence in upgraded human skills and significant economic reform.
Several enthusiastic government initiatives already was set to propel this growth, such as the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP), the National Key Results Areas (NKRAs), the National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs), the New Economic Model (NEM), the Government Transformation Programmes (GTP), and the Economic Transformation Programmes (ETP). The establishment of PEMANDU and the newly minted Talent Corp—driving these serious initiatives—is expected to drive serious growth trajectories in Malaysia.
Whilst PEMANDU has been resolutely driving growth with 19 more projects and worth RM67 billion in investments, RM36 billion in Gross National Income (GNI), whilst contributing to almost 35,000 new jobs, the challenge is on for Talent Corp, tasked to encourage overseas Malaysians to return home, after almost 500,000 Malaysians reportedly left the country between 2007 and 2009, more than doubling the number of Malaysian professionals who live overseas—exacerbating the country’s brain drain problem. It will have to bridge this massive talent gap.
Talent Corp’s Chief Executive, Johan Merican will be joining the most globally admired companies in Malaysia at the HR Talk Show to address current HR professional challenges three years ago, what those issues are today and what they will be three years from now to provide strategic clarity for Malaysian business leaders.
“Today, 80% of the workforce has education only up to SPM qualifications, Malaysia’s equivalent to the O-levels,” said Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak. Over the next five years, the aim is to raise the number of highly skilled workers to 5 million— now standing at 3.1 million among the 12 million workers in the country.
But it is, however, easier said than done. The New Economic Model adhering to “market friendly, merit-based, transparent and needs-based” principles of promotion through its inclusive affirmative action policy has yet to generate buy-in from various stakeholders.
The private sector is being cautious in going about this major change, especially given that the new global economy’s “bigger, better, faster, cheaper” demands which put a downward pressure on companies’ profit and liquidity prospects. In IBM’s 2010 Global CEO Study, CEOs turn back to innovation driven by creative leaders who thrive in uncertainties and experimentation to stay relevant in a highly volatile market. Prime Minister Najib Razak declared last year as the Year of Innovation and Creativity for Malaysia, saying, “Innovation creates jobs and boosts national competitiveness. This is why we, too, must make a creative impact in a competitive global economy. We must not allow ourselves to be left behind.”
Technology is another challenge given the new trends that require further collaboration, clarity and transparency, visibility and ubiquity amidst drive to cut costs without cutting effectiveness. HR will constantly be asked of hard numbers before taking up expensive server-based technologies from which they turn towards enterprise Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) products as cost effective alternatives to ERP software systems for human resource management. In fact in a global survey, about 40% of HR executives plan to implement SaaS for core needs between now and end of 2011, to simplify software management and reduce costs. However, there are challenges along the way, which include security/ privacy concerns, offline support availability and expensive initial implementation costs.

Think Global – Work Local…
With the increase in the number of qualified nationals, the GCC countries stand at the threshold of a new era in maximising the potential of their national human capital. However, the current economic situation threatens to undermine the hard-won gains of the nationalisation effort. With companies focusing more on cost â€“ cutting, downsizing and consolidating, the need of the hour is the correct identification, retention and skill set development of the top national employees.
Jacob Fleming is proud to announce the â€œManaging Local Talentâ€? conference, held in Doha-Qatar on 5-7 October 2009, a three-day Conference & workshop programme, featuring regional and international leaders in the HR profession from GCC region.
The event is crafted with the support of our distinguished panel of advisors who are experts in the field of nationalization. HR practitioners, advisors, academics, consultants and industry experts will come together to speak about and study nationalisation from all angles and find realistic solutions through key note presentations, case studies, speaker panel discussions and scenario based problem solving sessions, like: Current Nationalisation Initiatives in the GCC, how to implement an Effective Nationalisation Plan, Practical Techniques for Proper Assessment and Recruitment, Coaching and Mentoring Programmes for the Integration and Retention of Nationals, potential of the National Women workforce, the role of Education in Nationalisation.
Joy Isaiah, Conference Producer at Jacob Fleming and responsible for this event quotes “Jacob Fleming conferences bring in high level senior industry people who are carefully selected and invited so that the relevance of topics are ensured and business opportunities exists for all involved. The strongest point of our events has been format of conference which allows good interaction between the participants. Moreover the events being non vendor driven never fail to provide the attendees, a true knowledge sharing experience.â€?
