KUALA LUMPUR – To help local small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) businesses confront the most stringent of challenges due to the current new norm of the COVID-19 pandemic, uLearnMONEY, Money Compass Media, Max Capital Management Holding Ltd and Celik Wang, with supporting association, Malaysia Literacy in Financial Education Association (MyLIFE), will be organising the MyMalaysia SME HR e-Fair & Webinar this coming 27 April and 28 April on a cloud platform at https://smeefair.com.my/sme-hr-e-fair/.
Ms Amy Seok, Organising Chairman of the MyMalaysia SME HR e-Fair & Webinar, said, “The digital e-fair aims to reach out to all Malaysians where fresh graduates and job seekers can interact with recruiters or directly with potential SME employers.”
“With the theme ‘Go Hiring to Recover Your Business with HR Strategies and Incentives’, the event will provide an effective platform in helping SMEs to connect to acquire information and advice on the hiring and training incentives from the Malaysian government,” said the joint organisers in a statement.
There are four major types of financial assistance and incentives from government and financial institutions that are available for eligible SMEs to apply: Pemerkasa, Wages Subsidy (PSU 3.0), Micro Enterprise Fund (MEF), Targeted Relief and Recovery Facility (TRRF).
The e-Fair‘s mechanism includes a virtual exhibition, SME HR webinars, and the SME marketplace. The virtual exhibition will present virtual booths by government agencies, financial institutions, financial service providers, telecommunication providers, training agencies, as well as digital and HR & training solution providers.
Meanwhile, the SME HR webinars will consist of back-to-back webinars and talks given by experienced and credible speakers from various government bodies, associations, and corporations such as PERKESO, Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), SME Corporation Malaysia, and Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF).
The webinars will be exploring various issues such as how small and medium-sized enterprises can effectively hire and train employees with smart HR strategies to recover their business, how to bring maximum benefits at the lowest cost, and how to obtain assistance from relevant government departments.
“In addition to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on SMEs, fresh graduates are also facing the predicament of unemployment. Therefore, the joint organisers believe that SMEs should hire more fresh graduates to provide opportunities to the younger generation and let them explore their talents in their respective fields,” said the organisers.
Every SME employer who participates in the MyMalaysia SME HR e-Fair event will have the opportunity to receive 60% to 100% of the human resources subsidy.
