KUCHING: The Sarawak Centre of Performance Excellence (Scope) has launched a talent development programme for the state’s government-linked companies (GLCs).
The pilot programme – Sarawak Government-linked Companies Talent Development Programme – will see five candidates from various organisations across the state to undergo a six-month internship with Federal GLCs.
The respective participants will be assigned to “high-impact” projects across various fields such as human resource, customer relations, research and development, engineering and business development.
The programme, to develop the talent pool among GLCs, will take place from July to December.
“Talent development has often been a universal topic and focus worldwide.
“However, various studies conducted have shown that talent can be instilled through practice and experience,” said deputy state secretary (performance and service delivery transformation) Datuk Dr Sabariah Putit at the launch of the programme here.
The programme is launched in collaboration with Talent Corp, Teraju and Insken. Similarly, other candidates from Sabah and Kuala Lumpur will be participating in this nationwide leadership initiative.
Sabariah said through the hands-on training, the programme would be instrumental in instilling high-performance and leadership culture.
“More importantly, participants will be able to build business network and gain experience in working with large corporations,” she added.
Sabariah said the programme was deemed as timely, considering that the state had begun making inroads into developing talent in various sectors of digital economy.
The programme is a continuous effort in enhancing human capital development with the national transformation agenda.
