Our refinery is defined by the excellence of our people. We are proud to say that HRC is anchored on local Malaysian talent, that has been nurtured and developed with us over the years.

All Malaysian ethnicities and ages are represented here in HRC, building a rich vibrant cultural heritage and diversity which creates a healthy and supportive culture within the company.

Since our inception in 1963, we have always focused on developing and nurturing our team players. Our talent pool covers the full spectrum of our activities, including our engineers, our economics and marketing team and many types of skilled workers. We aim to ensure that everyone is equipped with the needed expertise to allow them to pinpoint and deliver solutions in their role, contributing to operational excellence and the whole business. We do this in line with our brand commitment to deliver reliability and quality products to our customers.

It has been our priority, and will continue to be, that all of our customers, business partners and vendors, will continue to do business with us on fair and reasonable commercial terms. Our people are the key to delivering that promise.

As we grow, we will always include attracting and retaining talented people as a key priority. We are very aware that our performance and sustainability as a long term business rests on the talent of our people.

Our core values

Towards uplifting company culture, we continue to instil core values of Integrity, Collaboration, Accountability, Entrepreneurial and Respect in all communication with our people. By making a commitment to these in our working lives, each of us plays our part in protecting and enhancing HRC’s reputation. Our shared core values underpin all the work we do and are the foundation of our Code of Conduct and the General Business Principles (GBP).

Diversity and Equal Opportunities Employer

HRC endeavors to provide a supportive work environment for all our employees and contract workers.

We respect and value the contributions and differences of every individual because diversity contributes to a dynamic and vibrant work environment. We do not accept any form of discrimination or harassment and will continue to maintain an inclusive workplace.

We offer equal opportunities to everyone and promote individuals based on their skills, knowledge, experience and performance, regardless of their gender, age, race, religion, and cultural background. This helps us ensure we always draw on the widest possible talent pool, to attract and retain the very best, and to enable a wide range of perspectives on issues and challenges.

In our sector which tends to be highly technical and male-dominated, we actively and continuously work to identify ways of addressing gender diversity at all levels of the organization.

Our commitment

We believe we have a responsibility to respect, support and uphold fundamental human rights as expressed in the Universal Declaration for Human Rights and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

Safety and security are critical to our business and operations. We endeavor to guarantee the safety and security of our people (employees and contractors) and surrounding communities at all times. Over the years we have developed a strong Quality, Health, Safety, Security and Environment (QHSSE) culture, which is deeply embedded in our working environment.

As a responsible company, we adhere to Malaysian Employment Law, that amongst other requirements, ensures fair minimum wages, fair working hours, and prevention of child or forced labour.
