WE LOVE PUBLIC HOLIDAYS IN A MULTI-RACIAL ENVIRONMENT
Working in Malaysia is the envy of your other counterparts around the world, especially if you are working for a MNC country. If you are working for a company based in Malaysia you get all the perks of mini-breaks throughout the year. Yeah yeah … maybe for those who are hard working and find it more of a frustration with so many mini-breaks of public holiday each and every month. Impeding the very important job at hand. Yes, there are those out-performing staff who roll-eyes everytime a public holiday is announced in the company.
But … ahem … we know deep down in your heart, you are just screaming for relief joy that there is another reason for a holiday. Admit it, no one needs to know. Well, having said that there are many companies in Malaysia who still hires based on a single raise. Perhaps we can highlight the benefits of hiring a myriad of different race.
Based on facts and figures, yes, the government sectors are often serviced by mainly by our fellow bumi-putera. Hiring a team which specializes and speaks the same lingo is important. Where of course Bahasa Malaysia plays a major part in interpreting the rules correctly.
When you can’t even pronounce a single word of Bahasa Malaysia correctly . . . do you think your companies application will go smoothly? You might have to waste time going back and forth at the office trying to get the correct documents signed. Of course perhaps with no penalty preferably.
DIVERSIFICATION IN BUSINESS IDEAS
When you have a myriad of race to contribute to business ideas. You can diversify your business. Gone are those days of baby boomers, where business owners are defined by jobs relating back to race and monopolization. These days competition is much fiercer, what with technologies and competition from out of the country suppliers. Hence one’s business acumen must be really good in order to be one step ahead of your competitors. How are you going to do it?
You definitely do not want to start price wars . . .no one wins in the end. The beauty of Malaysia is that we have many races and a melting pot of economic opportunities. Hence by hiring employees with different races and backgrounds, encouraging them to contribute to business ideas from their own racial perspective or on what makes their community tick, is a great way to benefit your company. You then can begin planning to target these niche market. You are able to diversify your business by not relying on a single race type of business.
When one does not have the opportunity to travel to seek inspiration. Or perhaps you are tied in terms of financially or even time, but yet you need to get a fresh new perspective in your creative work.
Seek creative inspiration through the eyes of your colleagues from different race and background! Talk to them, let them show you the rich heritage in terms of history and perhaps a myriad of colours and patterns unique only to their traditions. You might never know a great master piece might birth from these encounters.
THE COMPANY DOES NOT HAVE TO CLOSE SHOP
Of course when you have many different races working in a company, you practically do not have to close shop! Your employees can take turns to cover each other during individual festive season. As a business owner in Malaysia, your business can still continue on smoothly without closing for long stretches of time. Money will continue to flow in, customers will continue to enjoy your company’s service 365 days a year . . .
Eyewil takes this time to wish everyone Selamat Hari Raya and to all muslims celebrating Eid Mubarak and happy holidays to all working in Malaysia as we enjoy these two days of one of the most celebrated public holidays in Malaysia!
