Taufiq also called on all officers to carry out their duties with the right and sincere intention to produce blessings in life, while emphasising the values of integrity, honesty, cleanliness and trust.

“Self-interest should be set aside because the interests of the university are greater,” he said.

Taufiq also suggested that in an atmosphere of new norms, officers be able to utilise technology and gadgets when carrying out tasks without compromising communication delivery.

Earlier, PPUMS President for 2019/2021 session, Mohamad Edrus Othman in his welcoming speech informed that various activities have been held PPUMS covering aspects of improving professionalism, skills, welfare, recreation as well as brotherhood and understanding for the benefit of all members in particular and UMS in general.

According to him, PPUMS has collaborated with the university in organizing workshops to improve the professionalism and skills of officers.

“In line with the main objective of PPUMS which plays a role in looking after the welfare of members, the association has also made contributions to its members, including those affected by disasters or the loss of family members,” he said.

Mohamad Edrus also called on all members to manage the current changes professionally and increase their productivity by prioritizing integrity, maximizing the use of technology, being creative and adapting work to daily responsibilities.
