PIAM HR Dialogue with Member Companies
The association also organised a dialogue with human resources Heads of its member companies on 22 October 2013 in Kuala
Lumpur. The dialogue session was to update the HR managers on some of the key activities/initiatives that PIAM Education/HRD Sub-committee is embarking on, and to gather relevant feedback and initiatives that its members would like to share with the industry. The session covered the presentation from the YMTT on the development of the Think Tank to date. The MII had also shared an overview and highlighted the key project milestone of the Integrated Learning Management System (ILMS) Project, which is one of the Capacity Building Initiatives of MII. The other item discussed was the Centralised Induction Programme (CIP) initiated by the Task Force formed under the PIAM Education/HRD Sub-committee. The objective of the CIP is to harmonise, improve and elevate the quality, as well as to implement a sustainable long-term internship programme, in the general insurance industry for young entrants. This will orientate fresh talent in the insurance industry with some comprehensive knowledge on the industry and its operations. The session was well received by the participants and it promoted networking and sharing of information amongst the HR personnel of PIAM member companies with representatives from the Education Sub-committee and the YMTT. Close collaboration between the association and its members is important to ensure a joint effort in meeting the requirements of insurance companies and the industry as a whole.
