Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) 2017
TFP has always played its role in giving back to the community through various CSR programs in the past. In 2017, the Group collaborated with Autism Cafe Project (ACP) to raise awareness about autism
and most importantly to embrace people with special needs into the workforce.
The Autism Café Project, was founded in August 2016 by Mohd Adli Yahya, father of an autistic child. Adli’s vision for the Autism Café Project is to provide a safe space for individuals with autism to
undergo training to learn some basic skills and hopefully it will lead to some employment opportunities.
With the objective to amplify ACP’s effort, TFP worked with ACP at several corporate and customer events to promote the good cause. During such event, autism talk was presented. During the CIO Summit 2017 event, a few autistic youth were hired to run a popcorn stall and flyers were distributed. This initiative landed ACP with a few catering opportunities as well as invitation to give a speech on Autism.
TFP recognises the importance to strike a harmonious balance between business pursuits and CSR. We believe that we can make a difference in the community. We hope there will be more businesses
and individuals who will come forward and support this meaningful project – Autism Cafe Project.
In TFP, employees are highly valued as assets. In this fast moving market-place, we believe that our efforts to cultivate and strengthen corporate culture will eventually attract and retain talents. VGO Sports Club is set-up to organise staff gatherings, sports and other social activities throughout the year to bring together employees for a better working relationship.
We believe human capital development is vital for business continuity and sustainability as well as growth. The Group conducts regular performance assessments and provides talent development-related training to its Management and staff. Through various training programmes, workshops and seminars, employees acquire the right technical knowledge and skill to perform their duties professionally and efficiently.
As part of employee safety in our office, a safety and evacuation training is conducted annually to all employees to ensure safety procedures and compliance are adhered to.
The Group is committed to ensure fairness in career opportunities. This applies in the recruitment and disciplinary policies. The Group does not tolerate discrimination with regards to age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion or belief.
