FOUNDER of TEAMBRU (Team Brunei), Empire Solutions Sdn Bhd (ESSB) and StarLodge officially inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at a ceremony held at the Mercury Hall of StarLodge in Jerudong yesterday.
This initiative marks the collaboration between two companies with the objectives to empower Bruneians as well as providing a recruitment platform and training centre, said ESSB Managing Director Sahrulnizam bin Haji Ismail.
Being in the hospitality industry, StarLodge is the appropriate venue for potential ESSB employees to get their six-day trainings, said ESSB Managing Director.
Another challenge for ESSB is to meet the increasing demands of clients especially those on contract terms.
“In our first year of operation we managed to have a good volume of 500 clients on contracts but due to our manpower shortage the numbers went down the following year hence we came up with this training initiative to meet the rising demands of manpower,” said ESSB Managing Director.
Empire Solutions is also looking into collaboration with the Youth Development Centre (PPB) to have its trainees trained at the centre on technical jobs and welcomes PPB students to be part of ESSB.
Signing on behalf of Empire Solutions was its Senior Manager Jusardi Jumat while StarLodge was represented by Human Resources Executive Khairunisa binti Haji Abdullah.
