UTAR has been awarded the Best Employer Award, under Kajang district, by Kumpulan Wang Simpanan Pekerja (KWSP). UTAR proudly received the Certificate of Appreciation from KWSP Deputy Chief Executive Officer (Operations) YBhg Dato’ Mohd Naim Daruwish at the Best Employer Award Ceremony of KWSP Selangor on 27 October 2015.
UTAR was represented by Division of Human Resource Director Wong Lee Lan. "It is a great pleasure to be appreciated as one of the four best employers in Kajang as UTAR has been putting great effort in taking care of its employees' welfare, among others by providing an 18% EPF contribution, as well as medical and hospitalization benefits. The award just came so unexpectedly and we were so surprised," said Wong.
KWSP, also known as the Employees Provident Fund (EPF), stated that the criteria UTAR met for being awarded as the Best Employer are its systematic prompt remittance of contribution, no record of late payment since its establishment, high monthly EPF contribution from the university, as well as the use of electronic payment system via e-Contribution for the monthly remittance of contribution to EPF.
