The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - HOME -

TAWAU: Twenty-eight young­sters from Tawau, La­had Datu, San­dakan and Telupid took part in a ba­sic plan­ta­tion and mill cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity (CSR) train­ing pro­gram or­ga­nized by KL-Ke­pong (Sabah) Sdn Bhd at its re­cre­ation hall here re­cently.

The com­pany's op­er­a­tion di­rec­tor, Tan Kei Yoong, said the seven-week train­ing con­sisted of five-week prac­ti­cal train­ing and two-week lec­ture class.

"All the par­tic­i­pants had the op­por­tu­nity to un­dergo group learn­ing, dis­cus­sion, pre­sen­ta­tion, in­dus­trial com­pre­hen­sion class and plan­ta­tion op­er­a­tional works," he said.

Tan said most of the ac­tiv­i­ties had been car­ried out in groups (team build­ing) of four mem­bers each in order to en­hance the lead­er­ship skills of in­di­vid­u­als and team work.

Speak­ing at the clos­ing cer­e­mony, he said there was a dire need to boost the in­ter­est and aware­ness among the young­sters in Sabah on the im­por­tance of oil palm plan­ta­tion in­dus­try through this CSR train­ing pro­gram.

He said the train­ing fo­cused on im­prov­ing the em­ploy­a­bil­ity of the young­sters in Sabah in oil palm in­dus­try.

Be­sides that, Tan said the par­tic­i­pants had also been given the op­por­tu­nity to un­dergo a re­flex­ol­ogy ex­er­cise for the sake of the com­mu­nity's healthy.

Also present were the se­nior of­fi­cer of Hu­man Re­source Depart­ment, Mo­ham­mad Nazri Ramli, and gen­eral man­ager of KL-Ke­pong (Sabah) Sdn Bhd Tawau, M. Di­nakaran.
