Our People, Our Pride

Our people are our pride and, therefore, we have consistently placed great emphasis on allocating the resources required to ensure our workers’ safety and health are protected while performing their work responsibilities. By creating a safe and conducive working environment that prioritises our employees’ physical safety, security, and well-being, we can inculcate rewarding and fulfilling workplaces across all our business entities.

We have also crafted a conscientious and mindful approach to hiring and training that reflects our status as a rapidly growing and well-respected worldwide corporation. Furthermore, we believe in playing our role to contribute to the communities in which we operate our businesses, as well as the land districts upon which we build our development projects.

Occupational Safety and Health

Putting Employee Welfare and Well-Being First

Aligned to

Given the nature of our core business activities in packaging and property, we consistently focus significant resources into ensuring the safety and health of our employees when performing their occupational tasks.

Our emphasis on cultivating a healthy working environment helps to ensure the ongoing sustainability of our business by safeguarding our human resources, physical assets and operating licenses, while empowering our workforce to carry out their tasks and duties with increased confidence, efficiency, security and productivity.

We strive to achieve high standards in occupational safety and health by:

  • Adopting Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) policies and practices that comply to all national, local, industry-specific and occupation-specific laws, regulations and best practices
  • Adopting a Group-wide Safety and Health Policy that outlines our key areas of commitment
  • Maintaining robust OSHA management systems at all manufacturing plants and development sites
  • Maintaining inclusive and balanced OSHA Committees with fair representation from both the employer’s and employees’ sides, supported by designated safety officers at all worksites
  • Establishing comprehensive processes to identify risks and manage work-related hazards
  • Carrying out training for employees on occupational safety and health, supported by regular inspections to assess compliance
  • Encouraging all of our staff to undergo annual health checks and providing corporate health check-up benefits to our executive-level staff
  • Continuing to improve the health services provided to our foreign workers, with free health screenings for infectious diseases currently being provided to them
  • Installing automated machines to replace specific manual tasks, along with perimeter safety barriers around automated machinery, to improve the safety of our workers at various manufacturing plants

Maintaining Ethical, Engaging and Empowering Work Environments

Aligned to

Our conscientious approach to employment and training enables us to nurture and retain a high-performing, committed and diverse workforce. The knowledge, skills and loyalty of our employees are considered to be vital assets to the Group and our approach is designed to equip, empower and motivate our employees into giving their best.

As the Group continues to grow and progress, our people should similarly develop their capabilities and realise their full potential as part of the Scientex family. By inspiring the growth of our people and retaining talent, we are empowered to sustain our overall competitiveness within the markets where we operate and progress towards our growth objectives.

Our efforts within the scope of employment and training include:

  • Adherence to the labour practices and principles outlined in our Code of Ethics and entity-specific Human Resource policies 
  • Providing attractive yet dynamic benefit and remuneration packages to our employees, based upon the principles of equality and fairness 
  • Providing preferential employment opportunities to local Malaysians in line with the national agenda of cultivating local talents
  • Engaging regularly and effectively with employees through various channels in order to facilitate constructive two-way communication. This includes the promotion of our sustainability agenda during QRB dialogues to inculcate a collective spirit of responsibility.
  • Providing regular and role-specific training and development opportunities to employees that promote personal and professional growth 


Contributing To Local Communities

Placing Human Needs at The Heart of Our Mission

Aligned to

The desire to uplift local communities is core to our identity as an organisation. In line with our vision of ‘Sustainable Growth, Better Tomorrow’, we strive to ensure that our actions generate long lasting benefits for local communities, thereby aligning what is good for business with what is good for people.

This is important from a corporate social responsibility point of view and serves to support the advancement of these communities, which will then enhance the long-term sustainability of our businesses within these regions and bolster our ability to achieve our goals.

We contribute to local communities by:

  • Providing quality affordable housing across Peninsular Malaysia and neighbouring countries
  • Developing holistic townships that provide robust social value to the surrounding area, such as economic growth, increased accessibility, job or business opportunities and a higher quality of life
  • Providing meaningful and sustainable employment and career advancement opportunities to members of local communities
  • Promoting responsible social habits within the community, such as plastics recycling amongst younger generations through the Green Truck Programme, food waste composting via our ‘Back to Earth’ initiative and our fabric recycling initiative. Our collaboration with Global Peace Foundation Malaysia has enabled us to donate over 500kg of our compost to Orang Asli communities in Pahang, supporting the health of their soil and empowering their adoption of regenerative farming practices.
  • Engaging in community initiatives that enhance the provision of education and healthcare, such as our Scientex Health Day, which provided free basic health screenings and health talks at various locations near our property developments
  • Ad hoc and ongoing programmes that provide a concerted and meaningful response when local communities face issues such as floods, lack of access to clean water or dwindling blood supply
