Through our various operations, ICON Offshore recognise that its business has both direct and indirect impact on the communities we operate in. As a company, we strongly believe in our corporate social responsibility (“CSR”) to give back to the communities in which we operate as well contribute to the well-being of those who are less fortunate. With the goal of making a positive impact in the lives of these communities, ICON is actively engaged in a myriad of activities to address the needs of our local and global communities, as well as the needs of our future generations.
We have been a strong supporter of the Persatuan Dyslexia Malaysia (“PDM”) and its activities. In 2013, we supported PDM in its efforts to train teachers and psychologists in Malaysia on how to assess students with learning difficulties. This was achieved through a workshop where foreign experts were flown into Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to instruct teachers on the method of conducting various tests as well as impart teaching methods that have been developed to recognise students with learning disabilities.
We are also dedicated to promote education for the next generation through our contribution in a tuition programme at schools in Kemaman, Terengganu namely Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Kijal, Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Ayer Puteh, Sekolah Kebangsaan Payoh and Sekolah Kebangsaan RKT Seberang Tayor. We believe this tuition programme is an important part of our corporate social responsibility efforts to improve the living standards of the community and help educational development in the area.
Underlying our strong commitment to CSR is our passion for ensuring the health, safety and well-being of all our employees. ICON is committed to promote/provide safe and healthy work environment regardless of their gender, nationality, age, or level of ability.We understand that attracting and retaining the best possible people is paramount, and we strive to create a culture of support and success. Our employees are our most important asset, and we regard them all as members of our family.
ICON remains committed in continuing as well as broadening our CSR agenda, playing our part as a responsible member of the corporate society in the oil & gas industry in Malaysia. CSR activities are an integral part of the way we function as a business and enhance our commitment to be a responsible corporate citizen as well as an employer of choice.
