A Green Haven For All

A Green Haven For All

Surrounded by abundant beauty of nature, the award-winning eco-resort was built to work with nature and not against it. According to Chan, not a single tree was cut to accommodate the development. Likewise, its surrounding lake and landscape have been left undisturbed. Swimming and fishing in the lake—except on rare occasions and under strictly controlled conditions—are prohibited by the management of The Haven. This is to allow the ecosystem of the lake to thrive naturally. With plenty of fish swimming in its waters, The Haven’s lake has attracted otters to choose the lake as their habitat.

A Haven on Earth in Ipoh

“Everything we do is done with CSR in mind. We think about how we can help others. Our employees, our guests, our community. You can think of it as a kind of social service, one that is honest and integrity-based. You see, when you do things for yourself, it is self-serving. But when you do the opposite and serve others, it becomes different. That’s why we always aim to benefit others and in doing so we can do extraordinarily well.” Peter Chan, Chief Executive Officer, The Haven Ipoh

Refining the Work Processes via Lean Management

“We started our Lean approach through an introduction to all Heads of Department via an offsite retreat, where we brainstormed ideas to select and finalise Lean projects for Pantai Hospital Sungai Petani. A Lean Corner was created to raise staff awareness on the merits of Lean approach in reducing waiting time and increasing patient satisfaction. Three Lean project teams were set up and each of the project is championed by a leader who has relevant experience in overseeing the operations site. Lean encourages staff to improve the work they are involved in – by improving process and reducing delays in services to patients.” Ms Tio Bee Chan, Chief Executive Officer, Pantai Hospital Sungai Petani

A New Drive in Fishery Industry

In alleviating Sarawak’s economy through fishery, LKIM Sarawak saw a golden opportunity to expand the existing and potential agriculture businesses via tourism industry. Fully aware of the abundant fresh seafood availability plus with its unique places as points of interest, LKIM Sarawak engages the local fishermen and proposes the development of potential areas as tourist attractions.

Reeling in the Fishermen into Tourism-related Businesses

“Fishing can be categorised as one of main economic activities in Sarawak. Located strategically near the ocean, the fishermen are able to increase their daily hauls due to the ease of accessibility to the resources. However, it is currently inadequate to provide a better living condition for the fishermen community and requires major improvisations. LKIM Sarawak proudly took the mantle in aiding the fishermen community by transforming the four fishermen villages, Sri Muara, Kabong, Lawas and Belawai, as tourist destinations. Together with the support from the state government and related agencies, similar developments in other areas will also be realised in the near future.” Kusuadi Sallih, State Director, LKIM Sarawak.
