Tay Chee Kim, Corporate Manager, Business Operation
I joined KPJ Healthcare Berhad in January 1991, immediately after graduated as a Medical Lab Technologist offered by KPJ Tawakkal Specialist Hospital. I had served KPJ for more than 20 years attached 18 years in KPJ hospitals while 6 years in headquarters.
The best part of KPJ which made me stay here for so long is because of its leadership with clear direction, strong guidance and support from the top management team. The work culture at KPJ has always been very inclusive. The help and encouragement I received from my peers and colleagues, as well as seniors, were something that kept me going throughout. The work environment emphasises opportunities and growth through continuous development through job training, courses and conferences. Through this, I was able to be recognized and promoted to multiple positions starting as a Medical Lab Technologist at Hospital level until now as a Corporate Manager at Group level. I am proud to be a part of KPJ family and looking forward to growing together for many more years.
In KPJ, we love what we do, and I enjoy and appreciate my time with KPJ. In KPJ, I was entrusted by my superiors with various responsibilities and challenges that allow me to grow and to gain new skills. Besides managing medical laboratory works, I was given the opportunity to get involved with complex projects and to work on the technology desire along with the support of team and manager makes KPJ an organisation where you can build a long term career.
