PETALING JAYA: More Millennials in middle management can put the private sector in a good position to carve out the full benefits of digitalisation when the economy recovers, prominent entrepreneur Datuk Seri Vijay Eswaran said.
The QI Group founder and executive chairman said companies could set a human resource target of 30% millennials in middle management if they want to exploit digitalisation and compete successfully in regional and global markets.
This is more so once the economy recovers after the ravaging Covid-19 pandemic that could be sooner than later owing to new treatment protocols and the national vaccination programme gaining momentum.
“With e-commerce the way of the future and young people naturally switched on to social media and the Internet, Malaysia will be well placed to penetrate Asean’s 600 million market, ” he added. — Bernama
