31 March 2022 – TDM Plantation Sdn. Bhd. (TDMP) wrapped up its 3-day Harvester Upskilling Programme, a pilot training initiative to produce a knowledgeable estate workforce and maximise their work productivity. The training started on 29 March 2022 and was attended by selected harvesters, all personally mentored by TDMP’s very own experienced workers who shared their years of expertise in the plantation business.
Hosted at the Jaya Estate, the participants were first welcomed by TDM Head of Human Resources Haji Mohd Mardi Ismail and Jaya Estate Manager Encik Mohd Rosli Mukhtar. They then went through a theoretical learning session, attentively listening to fundamental operational insights in becoming an efficient harvester, before going to the field to experience FFB harvesting first-hand with direct supervision and support from a few of the estate’s experts. The insightful exchanges went on for the next two days, and as the programme wrapped up earlier today, we witnessed these harvesters blooming in confidence as they geared up to showcase what they had learnt so far.
