KUALA LUMPUR, 26 February 2018 – PETRONAS fortified its commitment to human capital development for the nation as it marked its seventh year of involvement in the Skim Latihan 1 Malaysia (SL1M) - Graduate Enhancement Employability Scheme (GEES) at the launch of ‘Program Temu Duga Skim Latihan 1Malaysia Peringkat Zon Tengah 2018’. The event was officiated by the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS), Selangor.

According to PETRONAS President and Group CEO, Tan Sri Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin “The company is committed to enhance the marketability of unemployed graduates in Malaysia. PETRONAS SL1M-GEES programme is designed and developed by PETRONAS Leadership Centre (PLC). These modules are made to intensify the required skills for fresh graduates to secure a job within a short period of time”

This year, PETRONAS aims to increase public awareness on the programme, as part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, simultaneously aiming to increase the number of applications for this year’s intake.

Approximately 89% of the participants were employed within three to six months upon completion with 22% of them currently employed by PETRONAS.
