KOTA KINABALU: An educated person without ethics and manners is doomed, says Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) Vice Chancellor, Professor Taufiq Yap Yun Hin.

“Ethical values such as integrity, honesty, fairness, responsibility, efficiency and trustworthiness should not only be applied in the business or career worlds but in our daily lives as human beings.

“Conflict caused by etiquette problem happens in our daily life, workplace is no exception.

“Workers who hold to ethical values will tend to be good employees, perform well and have a positive impact on the department,” Taufiq shared at the opening of a Business Ethic Workshop.

His speech was delivered by UMS Assistant Vice Chancellor, Professor Marcus Jopony.

The one-day event was held at the university’s Recital Hall on Tuesday. Held for the third time since 2017, it was jointly organised by Repsol Oil & Gas Malaysia Ltd, UMS Career Centre and Alumni, Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

He added that the workshop enables students to understand more on the true value of ethics in business and career.

Also, he stressed that such further discussion on ethical issues in careers and business are important as students are often involved in such issues throughout their studies.

“I am sure this is also crucial for their future careers,” Taufiq asserted adding that good ethics lead to one’s success. Meanwhile, Senior Manager (Legal Services) of Repsol Oil& Gas Malaysia Ltd, Dayangku Marianah Pengiran Mahmuddin said that the oil-based company is passionate about giving back to the local communities.

“We focus our community social investment activities in four main themes namely safety, education, health and human capital development.”

For education, Repsol thrust is on developing young Malaysian talents through its scholarship programme which was launched since 2008.

“UMS was included as a new partner in 2014 following the MoU signing, with the objective of tapping into the pool of young talents from Sabah.

“This scholarship programme presents our commitment to support and contribute towards Sabahans.” More than 300 UMS first and final year students of Engineering attended the event.

Also present were Repsol Senior Manager (Corporate Service), Isham Ismail, Repsol (Sabah/Labuan) Government & Community Relation Adviser, Datuk Eddie Abdullah and Director of UMS Career Centre and Alumni Dr Lai Yaw Meng.
