Integrity, Risk & Business Continuity Management Day At Sarawak Energy
KUCHING, 29 NOVEMBER 2018, THURSDAY: Senior management and staff of Sarawak Energy renewed their commitment to upholding integrity, one of the corporation’s 5 core values.
At its Integrity, Risk & Business Continuity Management Day at Menara Sarawak Energy on Wednesday, staff in attendance were reminded of what integrity stood for and why this core value was a key ingredient for business resilience, governing the way the organisation operates and do business.
Datu Sharbini Suhaili, Sarawak Energy Group Chief Executive Officer, when officiating at the event, emphasised the importance of conducting the company's business with the highest level of integrity, creating a risk-conscious and security-aware culture and putting in place a strong business continuity management process in the organisation.
Also present at the event were representatives from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Sarawak (MACC) Senior Assistant Director Chang Ching and Assistant Senior Superintendent Abang Mohd Nizam Abang Yusoff.
The event themed R.I.S.K to represent Risk conscious, Integrity uncompromised, Sustaining values and Key to business resiliency featured the signing of the integrity pledge by senior management led by Sharbini, talks by MACC and cyber expert and consultant from FM Global, Pankaj Thareja as well as an exhibition.
“We must not just do what is right but also be seen to do what is right. In this new digital era with social media providing immediate access to information from anywhere, you cannot hide. Unacceptable conduct or practices as a result of a lack of integrity will be instantly exposed and reach the stakeholders,” said Sharbini.
To embed this core value further into the organisational culture, the company rolled out its own Fraud Risk Management Framework and Fraud Control Policy when it launched the Zero Tolerance to Fraud Campaign last year.
“Nevertheless, even with a framework in place to protect and safeguard the value and reputation of the organisation, this virtue needs to internalised and practised by all 5,000 of our staff,” he said.
On business continuity management, Sharbini said preparation for any eventualities was essential and that the team must always be in a state of readiness in activating its emergency and crisis response team as well as deploying communication support.
Sarawak Energy has been conducting a series of business continuity management and crisis and emergency simulations at several of its offices, substations and powerplants including Batang Ai, Murum and recently Bakun to test the team’s resilience.
Earlier, Nooruddin Abdullah, Senior Vice President for Legal and Enterprise Risk explained the increasing importance of risk management to Sarawak Energy.
“An institutionalised enterprise risk management framework will enable the organisation to identify, anticipate and assess the likelihood and impact of risk on our business operations and projects during implementation. This is to pre-empt and prepare us, so we can minimise, if not, avoid all risks through mitigative measures.”-ENDS
