MIA Wins Human Resource Minister Award for Exceptional Role in Human Resource Development

The Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) today won the Human Resource Minister Award under the Training Providers category for its exceptional contribution and role in the human resources development sector of Malaysia.The Human Resources Development Awards were issued by Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Bhd to training providers who had played significant roles in the human resources development in the country. Last year MIA took home the Certificate of Appreciation from PSMB under the same category.Incepted in 1993, the PSMB Awards were initially introduced to acknowledge and give recognition to big employers only in the categories of manufacturing and services. Over the years, they were expanded to give recognition to small and medium sized employers in these categories and also to training providers. Since then, it has been an annual agenda by PSMB to give recognition to employers in these categories who have demonstrated excellence in human resources development.

MIA President Datuk Mohd Nasir Ahmad together with MIA Chief Executive Officer Haji Rosli Abdullah were present to receive the award from the Deputy Minister of Human Resource, Senator Dato’ Maznah Mazlan during the opening ceremony of PSMB 2011 Conference, at Sunway Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur today.

He added that continuous professional resource development through the latest innovations and trainings relevant to their scope of service and beyond is the added value offered by the Institute training arm.

Shanmugam said that the recognition was indeed a pleasant surprise for MIA to be identified by the auspices of the Ministry of Human Resources as a notable training provider for professional resource development in Malaysia.
