myTukar, Malaysia’s fastest-growing digital used car ecosystem, has been recognised as one of the ‘Best Companies to Work for in Asia 2023”, an award handed out by HR Asia – Asia’s most authoritative publication for HR professionals. This is myTukar’s first win and submission and a testament to its people-centric approach to its business.
The “Best Companies to Work for in Asia” award is one of the most representative HR awards in the region, and recognises companies with the best HR practices, high levels of employee engagement and excellent workplace cultures.
Chok Oi Sin, HR director of myTukar said, “At myTukar, we’re committed to building an inclusive workplace where our employees can thrive professionally and personally. We want myTukar to be a company where highly engaged employees have the opportunities to learn and apply new knowledge, as well as seek out new paths for growth opportunities.”
To promote a learning mindset across the company, myTukar organised over 100 different learning sessions in multiple training locations across the country, ensuring every employee had the opportunity to access key training sessions and classes. These sessions ranged from technical skills to soft skills development, and were open to every employee from the back-end office to the Sales and Aftersales departments.
myTukar has also emphasised engagement and wellness as part of the employee experience, making sure that employee communication, social support, as well as mental and physical wellbeing are prioritised, with inviting workspaces that offer both functionality and flexibility for employees.
Earlier this year, myTukar rolled out a bi-weekly Mental Wellness Live Webinar with licensed counsellors, aiming to equip employees with tips and techniques to boost mental health and build mental resilience in the workplace.
Derrick Eng, CEO of myTukar said, “Our people are our greatest talents and resource, and they are the heart and soul of everything that we do. This award is a testament to our people-centric approach towards our business and a sign that we’re doing right by our people.”
During the COVID-19 pandemic, myTukar kept employees on its payroll while taking the opportunity to train and equip them with new skill sets. The company has kept to the spirit of this and has continued to support its employees with upskilling and learning opportunities.
Eng added, “We’re dedicated to our employees’ wellbeing and are focused on keeping them healthy and engaged with the work that we do – with the knowledge that they can grow and thrive together with a company that grows with them as well.”
