Malaysia aims to attract professional women on a career break to return to the workforce. However, we are cognizant that many women face the challenge of having to juggle their personal commitments and work responsibilities.
Therefore, the Department of Women Development of Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development and Talent Corporation are proud to launch the Talent Wanita portal. This portal seeks to connect women with job opportunities with flexible working arrangements, in addition to providing more information on companies which provide support facilities that would enable women to manage their day-to-day responsibilities.
The Talent Wanita portal highlights the following features:
For women looking for flexibility in work arrangements (flexible or compressed work hours, telecommuting, etc.) or companies providing support facilities (child care centre/nursery, transit house, etc.), please register and search for available jobs that are suitable for you.
For companies providing flexible work arrangements (flexible or compressed work hours, telecommuting, etc.) or support facilities (child care centre/ nursery, transit house, etc.), please contact the Department of Women Development to find out more about how to list your job vacancies on this portal.
In line with the Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Seri Mohd Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak’s announcement on 29th May 2012, eligible companies will enjoy double tax deduction on training expenditure incurred for hiring women on career breaks.
This incentive will be available beginning January 2013.
Articles and stories about women at work, particularly in terms of how they manage their personal commitments and work responsibilities; and companies that have implemented flexible work arrangements or support facilities in-house, which enable them to attract and retain women in the workforce.
For companies that would like to share their articles and stories to attract women to join your organization, please contact the Department of Women Development.
