"Plateau's proven experience and understanding of our industry as well as its technology's ability to scale across our enterprise made them the ideal choice to support our talent management needs," said Khairuddin Hamzah, Assistant General Manager, Engineering Training and Human Resources at Malaysia Airlines. "Plateau gives our employees access to consistent training anytime and anywhere. We now have a clear view of employees' performance and development and can better track their activities and training to ensure that we are meeting all industry regulations."
According to Bersin & Associates, compliance-related training for airlines is particularly challenging since these companies have large and geographically dispersed employee populations, a wide range of job roles, and an array of regulatory requirements and compliance issues.
"By accurately tracking and documenting employee training, Malaysia Airlines is ensuring its continued success and ranking as one of Asia's top airlines," said Paul Sparta, Chairman and CEO of Plateau.
