What is HRDF Contribution? 

One of top Frequent Asked Questions is what is HRDF Contribution (or Levy) the mandatory payment imposed by the Government of Malaysin on specified groups of employers for the purpose of employee training and skills upgrading. Under HRDF or Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad’s (PSMB) Acts, certain categories of employers are liable to pay a Human Resource Development levy for each working employee at the rate of 1.0% of the monthly wages of the employee.

Who is eligible to apply for HRDF Training Grant?

Employers registered and/or incorporated in Malaysia who have registered with PSMB and pay the HRD levy immediately upon registration are eligible to apply for training grants (financial assistance) to defray all or a major portion of the “allowable costs” of training attended by their employees. Training must be in the area of direct benefit to their business operations.

Financial assistance is, therefore, not given to individuals who enrol and finance their own training programmes, whether partially or fully, and subsequently request for reimbursement from their employers. Neither is financial assistance given to employers who bear the cost of training after the successful completion of training by their employees.

To be eligible for training grants under the HRDF, trainees must be employees who are MALAYSIAN CITIZENS

What is the difference between soft skills and hard skills?

Modern HR Professionals have divided the skill sets into Hard Skills and Soft Skills, broadly on these lines:

Hard Skills are your Academic and Technical Qualifications which can be mostly gained from Colleges and Institutions. Your University Degrees and Diplomas awarded by various Academies fall in this category. Today almost everyone has these Hard Skills. So this does not make much of a difference in the Employment Market.

Soft Skills, on the other hand, can be defined as all the positive qualities of one’s personality. They can be enumerated in a list running into more than fifty different Soft Skills. While it may not be immediately possible to develop all these fifty different Soft Skills, it is imperative that one develops at least 5 to 8 important Soft Skills, like Effective Communication Skills, Interpersonal Skills, Quick Learning Techniques, Analytical Ability, Time Management Skills, etc. just to name a few, to equip oneself to face the Interview Panel quite confidently.

Remember, in today’s tough competition in the Employment Market, it is the Soft Skills which are going to add a winning element to one’s skill sets.
