COMMITMENT and loyalty in the workplace can help develop not only the company or organisation but also the country.

The acting director of Administration and Finance under the Ministry of Development (MoD) yesterday urged Brunei’s youth to obtain high qualifications in school to improve the chances of them landing their desired jobs.

Pg Kamis Pg Metamin explained that this would ensure that the youth are loyal and committed to their respective companies and occupations.

He said this during the ministry’s Long Service Medals (PKL) presentation ceremony yesterday at the Ministry of Development’s Training Centre (MODTC).

“Students must study well to achieve high grades to get the job they want. This way they will enjoy the job and stay committed and loyal,” said the acting director.

“Loyalty is very important. We have to be loyal and committed for any job because it will develop the company and the country,” he said.

Pg Kamis believed that education is the first step towards achieving the objective, in which he urged students to prepare for their future early.

“Education is very important because jobs are hard to get nowadays. It is very competitive… they need to work hard to get what they want,” he said.

Pg Maimurah Pg Hassan, the chief technical assistant under Public Works Department (JKR), said that all workers must be loyal and committed to their employers.

“The youth needs to be committed in their jobs for their country because this will curb (corruption) in the workplace,” she said.

“Their loyalty and commitment will assist in developing Brunei. This is why they must understand their roles as a civil servant and as a local.”
