Nestle puts Malaysians first in hiring process
KUALA LUMPUR: Food and beverage manufacturer Nestle (Malaysia) Bhd has always put Malaysians first in its hiring process.
“We believe in investing in our Malaysian talent to drive growth for our company,” said chief executive officer Alois Hofbauer in a statement yesterday.
Last year, Nestle invested more than RM11 million on training and development programmes and committed more than 60,000 hours to training its factory workforce, he said.
Productivity savings were also reinvested back into building its brands to ensure long-term growth.
“We believe in the power of our local talent and are committed to continue recruiting the best Malaysian talent, and to train and develop them.
“Through this commitment, we will deliver on Nestle’s purpose of enhancing quality of life and contributing to a healthier future for all Malaysians,” added Hofbauer.
Yesterday, Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin visited the Nestle factory complex in Shah Alam.
The factory has a history of close to 40 years and produces a wide range of brands.
Hamzah was taken on a tour of the training centre and production line. He also spoke to several long-serving employees.
