AwanBiru Technology Berhad (Awantec) has won the SME100 Awards 2023 in the ‘Sustainable Brands Awards’ category for the second time since 2021.
Awantec’s CEO Azlan Zainal Abidin, stated that this recognition reinforces Awantec’s position as Malaysia’s trusted technology and talent solutions partner. The award is a testament to its ability to effectively address customers’ needs and requirements for trusted and reliable products and services in this fast-evolving industry.
“We have begun to establish a robust and sustainable supply chain through strategic partnerships with distinguished industry leaders such as Google, HRD Corp., and Skillsoft, to collectively reduce environmental and social impact. “The award recognises the strength of Awantec, which has infused sustainability practices into every aspect of our business,” he said in a statement.
The win is a strong testament to Awantec’s improving performance, as the company recently recorded its second consecutive quarterly profit in Q1 Financial Year 2024. The positive financial outcome was driven by growth in both the Technology and Talent segments, powered by strong partnerships with various industry leaders such as the Human Resource Department Corporation (HRDC), Skillsoft, and Google.
These strong alliances were forged by Awantec as part of its Cloud transformation plan established in 2021.
The SME100 Award ceremony is held annually, and winners are selected entirely by the SME100 Committee through a physical audit and interview based on programmes and business plans from an ESG angle.
