On 26th May 2023, SilTerra organized the Long Service Awards (LSA) 2023 to celebrate the employees who have completed 15, 20 and 25 years of service in the year 2020 until June 2022. The event was held at the PARKROYAL Penang Resort.
SilTerra invited more than 200 long-serving employees to celebrate their loyalty and commitment throughout the years.
Speaking during the event, Dr. Albert, (CEO) publicly thanked our long-serving colleagues for the many years of service that they have devoted to the organization.
“In an age when job hopping is trendy, the constant pursuit of better opportunities and new experiences means that employees rarely stay for more than a few years. However, thanks to everyone here, we may have challenged that statement”, he added.
Also speaking during the event, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Haji Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir (Chairman), emphasized that the Company remains strong because of committed employees, and with our operations running more than two decades, he thanks the recipients for being the strong foundation which SilTerra stands on.
Recipients were entertained by the presentation of the Montage video, highlighting some of the memorable moments of our long-serving employees.
The Long-Service Award was divided into four (4) sessions. Session 1 was presented by Mr. Nor Din Abdullah (VP, Finance and Acting Senior Director for HR).
Session 2 was presented by Dr. Albert Pang (CEO).
Session 3 was presented by Datuk Seri Wong Siew Hai (A member of the SilTerra Board of Directors).
Session 4 was presented by Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Haji Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir (Chairman).
The pinnacle of the event was the celebration of the two longest serving-employees, Mr. Anuar Fadzil (Director, Facilities), celebrating 25 years in SilTerra and Mr. Tahiruddin Hamdan (Senior Director, EHS & ESG), celebrating 26 years. SilTerra is honored to have staff members whose many years of dedication, have shaped and contributed to our successes.
Besides the presentation of awards, the recipients were also treated with an 8-course dinner serving arrangement by PARKROYAL Resort, musical performances by Riverwalk Buskers and traditional dances by Fusion, representing the Chinese, Indian and Malay community.
In between the award sessions, the emcees had a chance to chat with some of the Long-Serving Employees. When asked to describe SilTerra in one word, Harriman said “Awesome” and Noorazly said “Family”. We hope that this is a mutual feeling shared among all SilTerra employees, how wonderful it is to be working at an awesome place with colleagues who you consider as family?
For the second round of getting to know our long-serving colleagues, we asked them about their memorable moments at SilTerra. One of the recipients, Shahril, said that he met his wife at SilTerra. We believe that there are more colleagues who met their other half at work. We thanked Shahril for sharing the moment with us. Asma Hani, on the other hand, shared that her memorable moment was being able to work in different departments and this caused her to gain invaluable experience.
The event ended with a group-photo session to commemorate the joyous moment.
