Aspiro Supports Country’s Initiative by Generating Jobs to Curb Unemployment

SHAH ALAM, 22 March 2018 — Aspiro Sdn Bhd is all set to return the Government’s call to provide new jobs for fresh and unemployed graduates. The business service provider is responding to the Department of Statistics report that Malaysia’s unemployment rate fell to 3.3 per cent in February 2018, down 0.1 per cent from the previous month.

Having just launched its Global Business Services Centre in Shah Alam, Aspiro is well on its way to employ up to 1500 persons by 2019. This year itself will see almost 500 job openings.

“We believe that we can contribute towards reducing this percentage as we are amid hiring young graduates to take on operational roles in the human resources, information technology and finance & accounting spheres,” states Aspiro’s chief executive officer, Lee Teck Seng.

Lee said that diversity and inclusion are some of the key drivers towards internal innovation and business growth for any corporations. As such, choosing Malaysia as their preferred location for headquarters was the best decision.
