Management Commitment Towards Integrity
i. Sowing the Seed : Laying The Foundation
The SEDC Management is committed to strengthening integrity in the Corporation and this is reflected by the fact that upon taking the helm in May 1995, the current Chairman emphasized INTEGRITY as one of the pillars for good corporate governance.
Until today, a very high premium is attached to integrity as a factor determining whether or not to recruit any person and whether or not an officer should be emplaced, confirmed or promoted.Among the efforts in inculcating integrity was the launching of the Integrity Campaign by then Deputy State Secretary, YBhg. Datu Taha Arifin on 4th January 1996 with the theme "Integrity is the Foundation of your career".
The Corporation's Integrity Campaign was reinforced and continued through a re-launch of the Campaign by YAB Ketua Menteri on 2nd September 2004 with the theme "Integrity Is Our Way Of Life".
The Corporation also celebrated the National Integrity Day and participated in the Integrity Day exhibitions on a regular basis. Indeed, SEDC also seek to inculcate good values, in particular good business ethics and integrity, and nurture that as a way of life for its employees. In recognition of its efforts to enhance integrity, the Corporation was awarded the "Malaysian Business Ethics Excellent Award 2008" by the Minister of Domestic Trade and Affairs on 11 November 2008.
