The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) has won the “Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad” for the Large Service Sector at the recent Human Resource Development (HRD) Awards 2017. This accolade follows hot on the heels of the Centre’s achievement in winning the ‘Purpose Built Convention & Exhibition Centre Award For Excellence’ at the rAWr (Recognising Award Winning Results) Awards 2017, earlier in the month.
Most recently, the Centre established its very-own Training Academy, certified by the Human Resource Development Fund (HRDF), to provide industry players with hospitality and business events courses and certifications. Under the academy, the Centre launched its first ‘earn and learn’ initiative, the Professional Development Programme, a 12-month programme which exposes participants to various departments within the Centre through both classroom-style and on-the-job training.
Other initiatives recognised by the judging panel included the Centre’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme, a corporate culture that encourages innovation and creativity, work-life balance strategies and HR data analytics, which all play an important role in Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre retaining its position as Malaysia’s premier facility and one of Asia Pacific’s leading meeting venues.
This recognition elevates the Centre in the service industry as the cultivator of future leaders in the business events industry for nurturing and refining potential talents.
