Kuala Lumpur, 9 September 2021 – A global pioneer in Edtech in the space of Mobile Learning and Learning Experience Portals, LTT Global today announced the launch of its new flagship initiative GetEmployed.today by Dato Ts Abd Radzak Abd Malek, International President, The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).
What we are witnessing now when distributing food and groceries are unimaginable sufferings of our Unemployed Malaysians first hand. Many had difficulty finding work amid pandemic-related shutdowns and, as a result, struggled to feed their families. We saw people without jobs, people living on the street, and anyone else in need and at risk of starvation. Their gratitude was expressed not in words but in tears that spoke a thousand words, said Dr Wemel Cumavoo, Co-Founder and CEO of LTT Global Communications Sdn Bhd, during the virtual soft launch of the GetEmployed.today platform.
As of August 2021, there were over 764,900 Unemployed Malaysians. It’s estimated that many more millions of Malaysians will become Unemployed over the next 6 months if nothing is done to help Malaysian SMEs’.
Therefore, we decided to step back, analyse the situation in the country, with our team and assessed our strengths, then, decided that we can and need to do something about it NOW and that is the birth of our impact project, GetEmployed.today.
The International Labour Organization recently had mentioned in one of its reports that those who lost their jobs gave up looking for work or were unavailable to work owing to the pandemic, resulting in more people leaving the labour force altogether and becoming “inactive” rather than unemployed, he added.
Based on that study, LTT Global’s GetEmployed.today impact initiative reinvents learning through a structured Employment Readiness Program and positioned to quickly get people negatively affected by the pandemic back on their feet. Just training alone is not enough. Many have lost their self-confidence, self-esteem, social skills and need special attention and counseling too. Our Employment Readiness Program helps one to Learn, Earn & Grow. Other features that enhance skills in this program include Mastery Classes and Webinars that are conducted by Universities, Corporates and Expert Individuals.
LTT Global has been recognised by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation & Development (OECD) & ASEAN Business Advisory Council in Nov 2018 as 1 of the 15 companies in ASEAN who are Responsible, Inclusive & having a proven Capacity Building Support Platform.
When answering why they created the GetEmployed.today, Dr Wemel said, “it is time to make a difference. With a little help from everyone be it Ministries and Agencies, the Education and Corporate Sectors, Associations, NGOs’ and Individuals, your support is life changing and will give the Unemployed Malaysians renewed hope, together let’s be a Catalyst to reset and rebuild our Malaysian Economy.”
