Premcem Gums is driven by a dedicated team of professionals at its production facilities and the corporate office. Our team is indeed our biggest asset!
We have a dedicated Human Resources function which looks at the selection, engagement, training and growth of our employees. We have practised a culture of nurturing and encouraging our employees through on-the-job learning and exposing them to higher responsibilities, and this has led to excellent growth paths for our team members. For example, our current Deputy General Manager started his career as a Maintenance Engineer, enhanced his capabilities through on-the-job training and earned industry recognised quality certifications. He now heads Quality Assurance, in addition to heading Operations at our Fast Hydrating Guar plant.
Our distinctive culture of meritocracy, openness, transparency and integrity has endeared our team of co-workers to us – as is evident from the tenure of our employees across all our locations (see infographic below).
