Merdeka understands the importance of job creation and business opportunities for local communities, especially those from areas around our mining operations. Prioritizing local workers and suppliers will improve the community’s economy and regional development growth.
Merdeka’s commitment to continue to increase local workforce recruitment is realized through various training, special scholarships, and skills for the working-age group to be prepared to enter the mining sector and its support. We also organize a capacity-building program for local businesses so that they can become part of our company’s supply chain. These various programs are gradually integrated with the internal policies of various work divisions in the Merdeka group.
