KellyOCG’s vice president in Asia Pacific, Anthony Raja Devadoss on how to resolve Malaysia’s brain drain
The World Bank says about 1 million Malaysians work overseas because of better salary and benefits.
How can we halt Malaysia’s brain drain?
HR practitioners can help attract, develop & retain top talent.
But to do that, they need to be upskilled and internationally certified.
They are recommended to undergo programmes such as SHRM-Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) and SHRM-Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP).
This may be the answer to Malaysia’s lack of HR professionals.
As of 2014, only 10% of the entire 20,000 HR practitioners in Malaysia are certified with HR-specific international standards.
The Human Resource Development Fund (HRDF) says there were only 112 certified HR practitioners registered with Malaysia Institute of Human Resource Management last year.
