Vision & Mission
At CDC, we know that well-planned talent agility support, conducted on a national level, constitutes an investment for a healthier Malaysian workforce, a better business community, and a stronger national economy.
CDC will show organisations why it is an employer’s responsibility to accelerate the agility and progression of transitioning staff to their next phase of life, be it re-employment, self-employment or retirement. Furthermore, we know that organisations that provide empathetic career transition support also generate a positive impact that is felt at all levels – the staff, their families and the country as a whole.
CDC transition support services will become an indispensable necessity in forward progression for companies undergoing restructuring. We envisage career transition as a widely-recognised positive step towards personal self-fulfilment and the making of better career choices going forward.
CDC is passionate about creating value for people who require transition support. We provide the requisite knowledge, support and encouragement on a personalised basis so that everyone can achieve their own professional goals rapidly and efficiently.
CDC will always work in an open, direct and honest manner. Simultaneously, we will ensure that what we do strictly adheres to the highest legal, ethical and moral standards.
CDC Malaysia will maintain a friendly, fair and creative work environment for our staff, and will respect individual diversity, new ideas and hard work.
There’s a lot of talk about “finding your passion” in modern self-help literature. Having a job that keeps you excited and motivated definitely keeps one’s morale and productivity buoyant. That said, there’s a difference between a passion that’s merely a hobby and one that contributes to society, and it’s the latter that you should be striving to make a career out of.
However, contrary to general perception, passion in itself isn’t the secret solution to our career woes. Nor will it ensure a happily ever after. It’s an important value to maintain in one’s life but it needs to be fuelled by the right perspective and approach, not to mention hard work and effort, to keep alive. That said, how do you find a career you’ll be passionate about?
Here are 6 simple and actionable steps to guide you on your search:
No one wants to plan for the worst (believe me, creating and maintaining a comprehensive phone tree for everyone in the organization was not my favorite part of the job). But it does happen, and the best way you can prevent it from keeping you down is to have a plan of action. Spend an hour or so every quarter getting your ducks in a row, and you’ll feel prepared no matter what punches get thrown your way.
