KUALA Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) staff are moved around every five years so they do not become complacent, said mayor Datuk Seri Amin Nordin Abd Aziz.
“This will ensure that officers and staff can widen their area of expertise.
“It is a continuous learning process and will enable them to increase knowledge and competency levels,” he said at DBKL’s Workers Day celebration.
Speaking during a dialogue session with panellists Cuepacs president Datuk Azih Muda and Amalgamated National Union Kuala Lumpur City Hall (Anulae DBKL) chairman Zakaria Abdullah, Amin Nordin said the rotation system would work well if the expertise of the employee was matched to the particular position.
The panellists touched on different issues faced by employers and employees, including managing expectations and limitations based on this year’s theme of “Berdekad bersama, budi dan jasa dilupa tiada”.
The session was moderated by DBKL Human Resources department director Mustafa Mohd Nor.
About 1,000 DBKL staff turned up for the DBKL Workers Day event at Dataran DBKL where a variety of mouth-watering food was served.
DBKL’s in-house staff from the Arts and Cultural Department provided entertainment.
Also present at the event were DBKL executive directors Datuk Mohd Najib Mohd (planning), Datuk Ibrahim Yusoff (socio-economic development) and Rolan Abdul Rahman (management).
