Malaysia Human Resources Minister Steven Sim Chee Keong, announced that the National Human Resource Policy Framework will be launched during the 2024 Labour Day celebrations at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC) on May 1.

He stated that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will inaugurate the framework, which will provide guidelines for the Ministry of Human Resources (Kesuma) and the government as a whole in implementing Malaysia’s human capital development programmes.

Sim said, “Kesuma will introduce the inaugural National Human Resource Policy Framework. This will address the gaps and discrepancies in the existing policy documents.”

“For instance, we are looking into the ageing population agenda, advancements in artificial intelligence [AI] technology, green economy, and women’s involvement in the workforce, to frame a guideline and strategies to steer Kesuma’s policies and programmes,” he added.

Sim emphasised that during the 2024 Labour Day celebrations, a variety of activities will be presented through Kesuma’s rebranding and dedication to the new 3K principles — Welfare, Skills, and Employee Success, differing from previous years.

This year’s Labour Day celebration will witness the participation of over 3,000 workers from unions, statutory bodies, the public, and private sectors, with the prime minister presenting several Labour Day Awards to acknowledge workers’ significant contributions to national development.

“This year’s celebration also has different features; for instance, there will be 18 accompanying programmes starting today [Tuesday], such as ‘Pocket Talk,’ sessions for exchanging views on worker-related issues in Putrajaya, Selangor, Johor Bharu, and Penang,” he highlighted.

He also highlighted that Kesuma is introducing two new categories of awards: Public Sector Worker of the Year and Media Personality of the Year. – BERNAMA
