High Performance Leadership Training for Senior Managers
The Group's senior managers were enrolled in the International Strategic Leadership Programme with the aim of grooming these future leaders into realising their true potential. Participants were guided to identifying and articulating strategic vision and directions for the division they are managing, with the broader idea of ensuring sustainable development and business growth for the Group. The 18-month management programme is an internationally accredited competency-blended learning programme, customised specifically to meet the Group's needs.

When there's a skill, there's a way
Samling has collaborated in three strategic partnerships in three years with various governmental training agencies, namely the Institut Latihan Perindustrian (ILP) Miri, Institut Kemahiran Belia Negara (IKBN), and the Pusat Pembangunan Kemahiran Sarawak (PPKS) to tackle the shortage of skilled manpower in Sarawak by making vocational training and qualifications available for youths, equipping them with skills and helping them secure good career prospects. We hope to produce a proficient workforce through training programmes which are practical and skill-based, and technically competent in relevant areas. These collaborations allow trainees to undergo industrial and apprenticeship training in the Group's manufacturing facilities. By ensuring that workplace learning is factored into the programme and formally recognised helps to meet the needs of employers for "work-ready" employees.
Four batches of trainees have been taken in since 2009, with the first batch of 11 trainees having completed their training in August 2011 and have since joined the Company as full-fledged employees.
