SHAH ALAM: Employers should offer salary increment to employees who have completed their professional certification courses or postgraduate degrees to reflect their qualifications and expertise. “I hope employers will seriously think of increasing the pay of their workforce which reflects their hard-earned qualification and experience. For instance, those who have completed their Malaysian Skills Certificate programme ought to be given increments since they have already upgraded themselves in terms of professional qualifications. This, he said, could be made possible through the targeted 35 per cent skilled Malaysian workforce as envisioned in the 11th Malaysia Plan. “In 2015, only 28 per cent or 3.4 million people out of the 14.8 million workforce in Malaysia are considered skilled.
