The theme of The Khazanah Report 2015 (TKR2015) is Living Our Values. Our five core values – teamwork, mutual respect, diligence, integrity and professionalism – are an integral part of Khazanah. On their first day at work, new employees are inducted on these values, which also feature prominently in the Code of Conduct handbook given to them. The values define who we are as an organisation and delineate what we advocate and how we operate.
Teamwork harnesses the strength of our staff, encouraging cooperative efforts across all levels and activities to achieve a common goal, all the while maintaining mutual respect by valuing each other’s diversity and treating everyone fairly. Through diligence, we give every task full care and commitment while striving for speed and accuracy. Integrity is fundamental to our actions, in which we strive to do what is right without exception, through good governance and operating with ethics. Professionalism ensures that we are accountable and responsible for all that we do, being timely and doing our best for each other and for our partners and stakeholders.
The theme is reflected on the cover of this report, premised on the concept of the tiang seri, which is the main pillar that forms the anchor of Malay traditional houses. The tiang seri is commonly wrapped by five different coloured cloths to distinguish it from other pillars. Similarly, the five Khazanah values are reflected across the various tasks that we undertake in carrying out our mandate.
To provide further insight into the theme throughout the report, the following pages feature call-outs on our activities and quotes from our staff that collectively highlight their approach, focus and understanding of the Khazanah values. Inside, the theme is further demonstrated through a case study that further elaborate on our governance and accountability framework, in addition to two other case studies on our work in catalysing domestic growth and value creation, and on our strategic venture into inclusive innovation.
