Every day at GE is a new opportunity to collaborate with the best minds in the country and develop solutions that make difference to millions of people. We invest in our people in a way that leadership, innovation, growth and unyielding integrity become a way of life. Join us and be a part of GE Malaysia’s growth story.
Our culture is about providing everyone who works here with opportunities to exercise their responsibility, integrity, and creativity while growing themselves, their careers, and our business.
Crotonville is GE’s global leadership institute. Often described as the epicenter of GE culture, Crotonville is both a place and an ideal. It connects past, present, and future — our heritage and our vision. Here, we seek to define the state of the art of leadership, sharing ideas with the most influential thinkers in academia and business, and creating transformative learning experiences to inspire, connect and develop the GE leaders of today and tomorrow.
In Malaysia, women make up less than half of the workforce, which is well below international and regional standards. This situation is further exacerbated up the chain of command, where women only command 11 percent of the positions. To address this situation, GE, together with Talent Corporation, the Ministry of Women, Family, and Community Development, and other leading multinational corporations have established the Women’s Talent Forum, a national focus group to address the issue of women participation and retention in the workforce.
In May 2012, the Forum organized a workshop on Workplace Innovations—Cultivating Women's Talents to engage leaders from the private sector to brainstorm solutions to address the issue of retention of women talent in the workforce. GE Malaysia is ahead of the curve in this respect, and we were awarded the best Workplace Practices and Women Empowerment Award in 2012 as a testament to our commitment towards diversity and the hard work of our Women's Network, one of GE’s most active affinity groups.
For more than a century, volunteerism has been a vibrant part of GE's culture, as both an individual employee activity as well as an organizational effort. We coordinate our resources — including products, matching gifts, grants and people — to create responses tailored to local and individual challenges. Today, the ultimate measure of GE's business is found in the improvements to the lives touched by our work.
GE’s community efforts in Malaysia are driven by a vibrant citizenship movement. GE recently received the Prime Minister's CSR Award for three categories:
- Best workplace practice
- Empowerment of Women; and
- Overall Champion for CSR
Key to this success was leadership involvement in championing differentiated efforts that creates impact not just to the company but also the country.
Our GE Volunteers Network (GEVN) works closely with local communities to address issues on education, poverty, capacity-building for youth, and the environment. In 2012, we contributed 8,000 hours in our volunteerism efforts, which is a 95 percent increase from 2011. GEVN Malaysia supports the Young Enterprise Program, a community service project managed by the American Chamber of Commerce that gives 16 year old students an opportunity to become entrepreneurs by creating and managing their own companies. In doing so, these future leaders will gain valuable skills in business acumen, teamwork, and other areas.

GE offers full-time internships to qualified candidates as well as co-ops to four-year college students who want to work more than 12 weeks while maintaining their college schedules.

The program is a combination of GE’s renowned leadership development, and our belief that people and HR give us our competitive advantage.
Given GE’s vast global presence, the demands of the business do provide opportunities for HRLP participants to complete international rotations. In the last year, participants completed international assignments in Brazil, China, South Africa, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates (Dubai), the United States, and Vietnam.
