Over 250,000 M’sians employed through MYFutureJobs portal this year – Saravanan


KUALA LUMPUR —  A total of 253,785 Malaysians have  successfully found work so far this year through national employment portal  MYFutureJobs, said Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri M. Saravanan.

He said the placements, undertaken by the Social Security Organisation (Socso), prove that the government has done its best to help the people.

Recognising the fact that the people needed support from the government during that  trying  period, he said various other initiatives were also implemented by the government to ensure the people’s continued survival. 

He said this includes Socso’s Wage Subsidy programme which had successfully rescued many local  companies from winding up and workers losing their jobs and source of income.

Apart from that, Saravanan said the Socso Employment Insurance Scheme introduced in 2018  had also played a big role in protecting retrenched workers and ensuring financial stability during the pandemic period.

“Government initiatives like these  have helped the country recover from the effects of the pandemic,”  he said when officiating the Socso  Media Awards Night which was also attended by Socso chief executive Datuk Sri Dr Mohammed Azman Aziz Mohammed here tonight.

Meanwhile, Saravanan said the government was aware of the media’s role in highlighting the government’s initiatives to help those impacted by the pandemic. 

“Contributions by media practitioners can never be repaid in any form. Your professionalism should be given due recognition.

“As such, I hope the event tonight, which is being held for the first time, will be the catalyst in  strengthening the relationship between the Ministry of Human Resources and its agencies, especially Socso and the media,” he said.
