FRIDAY, 28 MARCH –
The Administration and Governance Department of the Registrar Department Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) continued in its efforts to foster the culture of integrity among its staff.
As such, the department had organised a workshop on Development of Individual and Organisation with Integrity (PIOB) recently which was presented by the Senior Assistant Director of the Institute of Integrity Malaysia, Harisham Ibrahim.
According to the Deputy Chairman of the Organising Committee of UMS Integrity Month, Talib Abdullah Shani, the workshop aimed to foster the culture of integrity among public servants in particular UMS besides creating awareness on the importance of integrity within an organisation.
“This programme would help UMS staff understand the government’s efforts in implementing the National Integrity Plan (PIN) in creating a strong community in terms of moral and ethics, be religious and with strong spiritual values, backed by righteous character,” he added.
Talib said that the government is providing an insight into PIN to curb corruption, social problems in the community and bureaucracy which is prevalent in Malaysia.
“Therefore, I believe with such workshop, it would be able to expose and inculcate integrity to the roots,” he stressed. He was speaking at the official opening of the workshop which was held at the School of Medicine UMS Auditorium.
The workshop also provided an understanding to UMS staff of minor offenses that violate the ethics and compliance of the ‘I Promise’ which was signed by all university staff. – ZMD (fl)
