The establishment of 1Malaysia Outplacement Centre (1MOC) is a Government initiative to enhance the employability of Malaysian retrenched workers. Under this initiative, Malaysian workers that were retrenched will be equipped with the required additional industrial skills or qualifications to enable them to be re-employed that may continuously support their well-being after the loss of employment. This is in line with one of the measures stated in the Eleventh Malaysia Plan 2016-2020; to empower human capital through a quality workforce and to improve the employability of the workforce.
1Malaysia Outplacement Centre
- To act as a one-stop centre for Malaysian retrenched workers to gain employment.
- The centre is primarily meant to assist retrenched workers by up-skilling or reskilling them with the required competencies to enhance their employability and assisting them to secure employment either within the same or different industries
- To reduce the burden of retrenched workers by providing them with advisory support on career counselling and planning, platform for job applications and job matching through 1MOC’s portal and mobile application as well as to prepare them for the next career.
The services of 1MOC are open to all Malaysian workers who have been retrenched due to economic downturn. However, the training initiative is only extended to employees who have been retrenched by HRDF registered employers and industries covered under HRDF Act.
