‘GMAC Hu­man Re­sources Club’ has re­cently been launched by Gar­ment Man­u­fac­tur­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion of Cam­bo­dia (GMAC). The ob­jec­tive be­hind launch­ing this club is to build a knowl­edge bank, share in­for­ma­tion, ex­pe­ri­ence and ex­per­tise in or­der to im­prove the over­all func­tion­ing of the gar­ment in­dus­try. “Ad­min­is­tra­tion and hu­man re­sources man­age­ment are rel­e­vant to peo­ple man­age­ment, pol­icy, rules and reg­u­la­tions of the coun­try,” averred Kaing Monika, Deputy Sec­re­tary Gen­eral, GMAC. Kaing fur­ther added that the ob­jec­tive is to bring in­dus­trial in­sid­ers at man­age­ment level from the ad­min­is­tra­tion and hu­man re­sources depart­ment of all sec­tors to­gether and pro­vide them a plat­form to share their knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence. “Even if we in­no­vate and use high-tech ma­chin­ery, things will not work smoothly if our man­age­ment has not been well or­ga­nized. Si­mul­ta­ne­ously, we will learn some­thing new to im­prove our man­age­ment skills and fa­cil­i­tate work­flow in the in­dus­try. We want to make the hu­man re­sources club a repos­i­tory of knowl­edge,” said the Deputy Sec­re­tary Gen­eral. Ly Sam­nag, Hu­man Re­sources Man­ager, Meng Ieng Gar­ment Fac­tory, Phnom Penh, wel­comed the ini­tia­tive. “We are very much de­vel­oped in the IT sec­tor, so we are now work­ing on hu­man re­sources. We have to know more about it. If we are lagging be­hind, it will be very hard for us. Ear­lier no one helped us to solve any in­di­vid­ual issue but now we have a club which com­prises hun­dreds of mem­bers of GMAC,” men­tioned Sam­nag. 512 gar­ment ex­port-ori­ented fac­to­ries, 59 footwear fac­to­ries and 48 sub-con­tract­ing fac­to­ries have re­port­edly come to­gether for this ini­tia­tive.
