Sarawak Energy Holds Ramah Tamah Aidilfitri
KUCHING, 29TH JULY 2016, FRIDAY: Sarawak Energy held a Majlis Ramah Tamah in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidilfitri on Friday morning, celebrating the power utility’s employee diversity and fostering staff unity.
Held at Menara Sarawak Energy, the event was graced by Deputy Chief Minister YB Datuk Amar Abang Haji Abdul Rahman Zohari bin Tun Abang Haji Openg who was representing the Chief Minister of Sarawak YAB Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri (Dr) Haji Adenan Bin Haji Satem.
The event was hosted by Sarawak Energy’s Chairman Datuk Amar Abdul Hamed Sepawi. Also present were Executive Vice President of Sarawak Energy and Chief Executive Officer of SESCO Lu Yew Hung and Executive Vice President for Corporate Services Aisah Eden. They were joined by senior officials and about 1,000 staff of Sarawak Energy.
The guests were entertained by the Gendang Melayu Lama group and treated to traditional raya fare afterwards.
In his speech, Zohari said the State Government was pleased to see that there was knowledge transfer and capacity building happening at every level in Sarawak Energy.
He congratulated Sarawak Energy on progressing its aspiration to be a major renewable energy player in the ASEAN region with the commencement of power export to Indonesian West Kalimantan while developing plans with Brunei and Sabah for further interconnection projects.
"As the company progresses, it also elevates the socio economic status of Sarawakians. Other than ensuring that everybody has electricity, Sarawak Energy employees are also important contributors to the state’s socio economic development through the company’s role as catalyst of SCORE,” he said.
Earlier, Hamed said Sarawak Energy was a company of diverse employees with inclusiveness at its core, and festive events such as Ramah Tamah, Christmas and Gawai created an environment of unity.
“It is during occasions like these that enable us to foster closer personal and professional bonds and make us a stronger team,” he said.
Sarawak Energy's strong talent pool in the fields of hydro, thermal, transmission, distribution and corporate services would enable the power utility to deliver its tasks and responsibilities as a power development company.
Sarawak Energy employs over 4,300 Sarawakians and has around 600,000 customers in households and businesses across Sarawak.
