Lembaga Zakat Selangor (“LZS”) was established 20 years ago and synonymous with zakat management in Selangor. LZS plays an important role in complementing the State Government’s poverty eradication effort. Zakat is one of the fundamental pillar of Islam, it serves as the purification of wealth and is categorized under obligatory charity in Islam for Muslims who fulfills its requirement. Core functions are collection and distribution of zakat and asnaf (the needy) development.

In achieving the fundamental aspect of LZS, the main objective of LZS is tailor-made to Strengthen Zakat Management, Maximize Zakat Collection and Improve the Zakat Distribution. The objective statement is supported by its:
  • Vision - To be the leader of zakat institutions that adopt management standards comparable to global ranking;
  • Mission – to provide services to Muslims with full integrity and professionalism in the collection and distribution of zakat.
Consequently, LZS employees are continuously trained and nurtured with programs and activities to internalize the 7 Core Values as specified below:

Workplace Policies and Practices

Human resources policies and procedures are in place to ensure that corporate governance is followed, particularly when it comes to managing work processes and employee conduct, such as recruitment, compensation & benefits, disciplinary, learning & development, conflict of interest, bribery, and safety & health.

Various audits and assessments have been done to maintain and assure compliance with various rules and procedures. As one of the organizations that has achieved ISO 9002:2015 accreditation and has taken the step to become Anti Bribery Management System certified, compliance is critical.

All policies, procedures, and processes are designed to balance the benefits of the organization and its employees in order to achieve high performance while maintaining a kind and caring work environment in order to support a positive employee experience and increase employee engagement.

In the initial pandemic outbreak, LZS swiftly launched work-from-home policies with clear guidelines, handbook on the same policy for employees and supervisors, extended telephone allowance and to all staff rather than a selected group of employees and renamed it connectivity allowance, and changed work arrangements (in accordance with the pandemic scenario and government restrictions) such as implemented shorter work hours and branch operation hours, reducing the number of employees working in the office, and establishing split teams that come to the office.

Our employer brand is built on multiple factors including the policies, programs, rewards, benefits and perks offered to our candidates. Our employer brand is strong from our solid presence in the distribution of zakat broadcasted through our social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Aiming to the potential candidates and those with the desire to give back to the community, country, and religion are drawn to our major presence as an Islamic organization and a zakat institution.
Our service level generates its own benchmark, thus Service Delivery Model (SDM) is also our branding. A satisfied employee, will exhibit the proper attitude and leave a positive impression at LZS.
