Welcome To The Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF)

Our vision to drive the economic transformation of Malaysia through the country’s most valued asset – its people – defines our purpose at work, every single day.

Simply put, we are a knowledge centre which aims to support the continuous learning and development of the Malaysian workforce which is the key driver supporting our nation’s economic growth.

We have come a long way since 1993 when we were first set up as Majlis Pembangunan Sumber Manusia (MPSM). Currently governed by the Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad Act 2001 (PSMB Act, 2001) and under the purview of the Ministry of Human Resources, Malaysia, we strive to work hand-in-glove with the Industry, our registered employers and training providers, and the critical mass of the country’s Small, Medium Enterprises towards increasing the skills of our local workforce, apprentices and trainees to meet the demands of a digitalised global economy.

The Government has initiated several programmes under the 11th Malaysian Plan (11MP) towards accelerating human capital development through four key areas which are:

  • Improving the efficiency of labour market to accelerate economic growth;
  • Transforming technical and vocational education to meet industry demand;
  • Strengthening lifelong learning for skills enhancement; and
  • Improving the quality of education system for better student outcomes and institutional excellence.

Under the area of “Strengthening of Lifelong Learning for Skills Enhancement”, HRDF is mandated to ensure the growth of a quality local workforce through efficient high-skilled training certification programmes and initiatives. This, in return, is expected to contribute to the creation of a-35 per cent skilled Malaysian workforce and 1.5 million jobs by 2020.

Additionally, we continue to encourage our registered employers who are covered under the PSMB Act, 2001 to retrain and upgrade the skills of their local employees, apprentices and trainees in to drive their respective business and operational growth.

With 19 new sub-sectors added to the PSMB Act, 2001 (in addition to the 44 sub-sectors) recently, we have assumed a greater responsibility to reach out to the corporates - educating and motivating them to seek the benefits and value of our learning and development schemes, initiatives and programmes.
