TCS Malaysia recently received the “Partnership for Goals Recognition” award at the UN Global Compact Network Malaysia and Brunei (UNGCMYB) Sustainability Performance Awards 2022.
The awards programme, which is based on the UNGC’s 10 SDG Ambition Benchmarks that highlight 10 actions businesses can take to improve sustainability, recognises organisations’ ongoing efforts to make sustainability an integral part of their business strategies while also attempting to inspire similar implementation by other organisations.
In particular, the “Partnership for the Goals Recognition” category relates to UN SDG 17, which calls on organisations to “strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development.”
TCS Malaysia won the award for its flagship Initial Learning Programme (ILP), which aims to provide training and job opportunities for the country’s technology sector. The ILP, which will be launched in 2020 in collaboration with 19 leading universities, aligns with the Malaysian Government’s IR4.0 ambition, which aims to grow the country’s digital economy and create high-quality career opportunities for its workforce.
The ILP initiative trains participants in areas such as cybersecurity, data science, blockchain, and AI machine learning, as well as problem solving, creativity, and communication skills. TCS Malaysia has trained fresh graduates across seven ILP cohorts, with 160 trainees later offered permanent positions in the company. TCS Malaysia intends to provide job placements for 500 graduates by 2024.
“We are greatly honoured to receive this recognition from UNGCMYB. TCS believes in leveraging our strengths and resources to increase young people’s access to high-quality career opportunities. Through our ILP, we have worked with government agencies, government-linked companies, and private corporations to close the digital skills gap and create well-paying jobs in the technology sector for Malaysian youths, leveraging TCS’ global experience and knowledge”.
“Each entity can contribute complementary capacity to drive benefits that are greater than the sum of our parts with the right partnerships. This UNGCMYB recognition would not have been possible without the participation of our closest partners, particularly Petronas, in this year’s Petronas BeDigital Bootcamp,” said TCS Malaysia country head Jeeva Rajoo.
“Petronas has had the opportunity to collaborate with TCS Malaysia in various capacities,” said Datuk Bacho Pilong, senior vice president of project delivery and technology at Petroliam Nasional Bhd. Our ongoing partnerships to empower youths have been a key area where we can synergize our strengths to offer a brighter future to young people, in line with Petronas’ purpose to enrich lives for a sustainable future. “I congratulate TCS Malaysia on this UNGCMYB recognition.”
“We are pleased to recognise the valuable work that TCS Malaysia is doing. I congratulate TCS Malaysia on their accomplishments and look forward to new initiatives from their dynamic team,” said Faroze Nadar, executive director of the UN Global Compact Network Malaysia and Brunei.
