During the visit, Mrs Teo spoke to Mr Mohd Shaleh Halit, Deputy Operations Manager about his personal career transformations in Certis. By embracing technology, employees like Mr Shaleh multiplied their work effectiveness and achieved much more than they could imagined when they first started out their careers in Certis.Mr Shaleh used to work as a ground supervisor in Certis before he upgraded and acquired new skill sets that allow him to now remotely monitor more than 110 sites at BCC. What made the difference for Mr Shaleh was the shift in mindset and stepping out of his comfort zone.He left behind his familiar ground operations, started studying video analytics courses and learned how to prepare reports for clients. “It took me the whole day to prepare a report, and I practised at home till the wee hours. If I didn't understand certain things, I would text my boss," Mr Shaleh recalled. Now, he takes just two hours to do the report.Employees at Certis are constantly given opportunities to upgrade their skill sets and knowledge, and they are also encouraged to pro-actively source for new opportunities to contribute more meaningfully.Ms Noraisha Unus, Operations Support Executive at Certis BCC, joined Certis in 2010 as an Operations Officer and through continuous of upgrading her skillsets, she is now performing Data Analytics as well as using Video Content Analytics in her present role.
