Telekom Malaysia (TM) introduced forward-looking pilot programme that allows employees to work from home – a move to make the group more “environment-friendly” said its chief executive

According to TM group CEO Datuk Zamzam­zairani Mohd Isa (pic), the move was in line with its efforts to contribute to a “greener” environment in Malaysia.

“We have selected a few people who can do their work from their homes.

“This will cut down on travelling and thus reduce the carbon footprint as well as time and money,” he said.

Zamzamzairani said the group had started with 10 employees and would increase the number if it worked out well.

TM also plans to nurture the younger generation in the country via its vast resources and development programmes.

“We have done that before we were privatised and we will still continue doing our part now,” he said.
