Johor Port Bhd (JPB) has embarked on a number of programmes to further enhance the quality of its workforce and build its overall leadership capacity.

For an organisation’s growth to be sustainable, it needs a pool of strong and versatile leaders. As such, JPB aims to create a wide pool of well-rounded leaders who are not only competent in their respective subject matters, but also possess the right attributes to inspire and lead their respective teams to greater heights and results.

Due to the robust and dynamic nature of the port and maritime industry, JPB is aware that just equipping its employees with technical and functional ability and training would not suffice. It has gone the extra mile to help accelerate the growth of its employees and develop them into world-class workforce.

Besides the commercial strategies and initiatives that JPB’s management has drawn up, there are also strategies and initiatives to further develop and enhance its human capital.

The many human capital initiatives taken by the port included the 10-month long “Leadership Acceleration Programme” to further facilitate and accelerate the development of its high potential employees into capable leaders.

The programme was launched by JPB CEO Shahrull Allam Shah Abdul Halim on Feb 22.

This unique accelerator programme forces participants out of their comfort zone, hence accelerating their growth as leaders.

The LAP also involves mentoring, field trips and numerous sessions with leaders and thought gurus from other areas, and exposure to live projects.

People are the most important asset of an organisation. Kudos to the team at JPB for embarking on this programme, and continuous focus in developing and growing their employees.

myStarjob.com wishes JBP and all those participating in the LAP programme an exciting 10 months as they embark on this new journey of growth and discovery.
