Anwar launches national HR policy framework
Human resources minister Steven Sim said the framework addresses crucial issues such as fair compensation, job welfare, labour union movements, job mismatches and foreign labour.
PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim launched the national human resources policy framework today.

Human resources minister Steven Sim said the framework, which comprises three cores and 11 strategies, was developed after considering feedback from stakeholders and the public through engagement sessions, focus group discussions and online surveys.

“This framework addresses crucial issues related to workers such as fair compensation, job welfare, labour union movements, job mismatches and foreign labour.

“This framework will further serve as a guide in formulating the comprehensive National Human Resources Policy for the 13th Malaysia Plan,” he said during the 2024 national Labour Day celebration, with the theme “Pekerja Kesuma Bangsa”, at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre today.

Addressing the government’s efforts in enhancing the wages of workers, Sim highlighted that the forthcoming pilot project on the progressive wage policy, in collaboration with the economy ministry, was expected to commence next month.

“The Madani government has allocated RM50 million for this pilot project to benefit an estimated 1.05 million workers.”

The proposed white paper on the progressive wage policy was presented in Parliament on Nov 30 last year.

It formed part of the government’s strategy to increase the median wage of workers and their share of compensation for the remainder of the 12th Malaysia Plan and the next 10 years.

Outlining the human resources ministry’s agenda for the year, Sim said RM2.56 billion had been earmarked for skills training initiatives, encompassing diverse fields such as artificial intelligence, robotics, green economy skills and 5G technology.
