RMID Hosts ‘Integrity Month’ to Raise Awareness on ABMS
The month of September was officially recognised as Malakoff Corporation Berhad (“Malakoff”) ‘Integrity Month’ where various activities were conducted to promote Group-wide awareness among staff on the ISO 37001:2016 Anti-Bribery Management System (ABMS) requirement.
This new initiative, introduced by the Risk Management and Integrity Department (“RMID”), is part of the Group’s efforts to comply with Section 17A of the MACC Act on Corporate Liability and the TRUST Principles on Adequate Procedures that was introduced by the Prime Minister Department’s Governance Integrity Anti-Corruption Centre (“GIACC”).
This inaugural initiative was officiated on 1 September 2021 by our Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer (“MD/CEO”), Encik Anwar Syahrin Bin Abdul Ajib and Malakoff’s Chairman, Datuk Haji Hasni Bin Harun. This was followed by an ‘Integrity Talk’ on Section 17A of MACC Act - Corporate Liability, delivered by a guest speaker from MACC focusing on the legal implications from bribery acts by referencing real-life cases for everyone to learn from.
RMID organised a ‘Pantun Anti-Rasuah’ Contest from 1 – 20 September 2021 to promote the integrity culture while cultivating the habit of creative writing among Malakoff employees. On 17 September 2021, a forum entitled ‘Bicara Integriti’ by Ustaz Mohamad Wadi Annuar Bin Ayub was held to emphasise on the dangers of sinful acts of bribery from an Islamic perspective. In addition, as an effort to encourage staff participation, two interactive game-based activities (Integrity Info Hunt and Integrity Live Quiz) were conducted virtually on 24 and 30 September 2021 respectively. These games, which were conducted in a fun way, were aimed at increasing our staff's understanding and awareness on ABMS-related policies and procedures. Additionally, a ‘Weekly Integrity Quote’ was circulated to all staff to serve as a reminder on integrity and anti-bribery matters.
As the saying goes, “All good things must come to an end”. The ‘Integrity Month’ finally wrapped up with a closing ceremony held on 1 October where attendees were eligible to participate in a lucky draw contest and winners from the previously held contests were also announced. Encik Anwar Syahrin graced the closing ceremony by highlighting the importance of continuously upholding a high integrity culture not only at the workplace, but also in our daily lives.
Congratulations to all winners and a huge appreciation to all staff that made the event a success!
