MAH SING GROUP BHD was recently honoured with the Investment in People award by the Asia Responsibility Entrepreneurship Award (AREA) in South-East Asia.

The sixth annual AREA Awards Ceremony was held in Singapore last month.

“Mah Sing believes that human capital is the driving force of a successful company. Hence, the group is genuinely committed in attracting talent, developing and retaining our people. The interest of Mah Sing’s external stakeholders such as our customers and investors are also very important to us.

“The company placed great emphasis in customer service, hence we have our MClub and MCare. In addition to this, Mah Sing has been continuously rewarding our shareholders with a stable and sustainable return,” said Tan Sri Leong Hoy Kum, Mah Sing’s group managing director cum group chief executive.

Organised by Enterprise Asia, a a non-governmental organisation in pursuit of entrepreneurship development across the region, AREA recognises and honours Asian businesses for championing sustainable and responsible entrepreneurship in the categories of Green Leadership, Investment in People, Health Promotion, Social Empowerment, SME CSR and Responsible Business Leadership. The only other winner in the Investment in People Category is Tauzia Hotel Management of Indonesia.

Mah Sing invests comprehensively in learning and development as the group believes that an effective workforce is essential to the success of an organisation. The company provides internal and external training for all its employees to promote continuous learning and improvement.

Its sports club organises activities aimed at creating a platform to inculcate and encourage competitive spirit and camaraderie among its employees.

The company is a strong supporter of community sports as it unites people regardless of their age and cultural backgrounds while inculcating a healthy lifestyle amongst the community.

The group’s values are also reflected in its development projects through continuous efforts to improve its offerings to home buyers. Some of the lifestyle amenities offered by various projects include swimming and wading pools, gymnasiums, dance studio, futsal and badminton courts.

In addition to the latest security technologies at each development, Mah Sing also has plans to add auxiliary police forces to complement the company’s existing security forces.

Additionally, Mah Sing has also set up M Care, an initiative to provide professional services to assist house buyers.
