MEF lauds empowerment by MOH through HRDF under e-Latih

PETALING JAYA: The newly established e-Latih hub aims to provide two million Malaysians free access to relevant training this year. Ministry of Human Resources strategy is a positive step to resolve unemployment issues, especially for fresh graduates as the nation recovers from the Covid-19 situation.

Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) president Datuk Dr Syed Hussain Syed Husman supports the move by government for implementing the e-Latih hub under the Human Resource Development Fund (HRDF). e-Latih was launched by the Minister of Human Resources Datuk Seri M. Saravanan in Putrajaya on Feb 6, 2021.

“The e-Latih hub is a great platform that has the potential to upskill and reskill about  two million Malaysians that would contribute to improving the efficiency and productivity of industries and businesses,” said Syed Hussain.

“ Covid-19 mandates that strict SOPs be adhered to, such asocial distancing, travel restrictions and having to adapt to the ‘new norm’ have forced many employers to remodel their businesses with employees having to have multi-skills and perform multiple tasks.

“The e-Latih hub would enable Malaysians to have the requisite skills and knowledge that are relevant in today’s massive borderless digital market, and also learn about the latest digital tools that are available,” he added.

He also congratulated Saravanan and the HRDF for introducing the e-Latih hub which went online on Feb 6 and estimated to operate till Feb 5 2022.

“MEF is supportive of efforts to enhance the employability of the rakyat and thanks the government for providing free training under the e-Latih hub.

“For employers, now is the time to upskill and reskill our employees so that we will togather overcome the challenges  at our doorsteps now and in the future,” he said.
