PLUS Malaysia Berhad (PLUS) emerged as the winner of the Asia Pacific StrategicRISK Award in the Risk Programme in the recent Annual Conference Risk Forum 2019 in Singapore.
The StrategicRISK Award winners were independently judged by a panel of hand-picked risk experts. The winners were judged on their risk programme meeting the changing needs of the organization and how it was effectively embedded within the company’s DNA.
“I am truly proud of PLUS for winning this award. It is a clear testament of our team’s ability to engineer a robust risk management system. Their commitment and sacrifices are evident as we were picked as the winner over leading world class organizations like Singapore’s Changi, which is the world’s most awarded airport and Bangkok’s Thai Union, a global seafood leader in the finals. This award is dedicated to everyone in PLUS,” said Datuk Azman Ismail, Managing Director of PLUS.
“The key factor that placed PLUS ahead of the other candidates is their authenticity in their approach. PLUS demonstrated that they not only understand risk management theatrically, but truly believed in it and are actively applying it,” said William Sanders, Executive Publisher of StrategicRISK in Europe, Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
“’The Asia-Pacific Awards are an important way to recognize and reward organizations and individuals who can demonstrate they have gone the extra mile in 2018 to introduce or improve their risk management strategies in the region,” he added.
Satpal Singh, Head of Risk and Compliance of PLUS said, “We have strong support from our PLUS Leadership. Their belief in driving a strong risk, integrity and comprehensive safety culture companywide reflects their commitment in enforcing risk management principles in the daily lives of employees, even beyond work.”
