Strong economies and major businesses thrive on diversity. Organizations that employ a diverse, multicultural workforce can supply a greater variety of solutions to problems in service, sourcing, and allocation of resources. Employees from diverse backgrounds bring individual talents and experiences in suggesting ideas that are flexible in adapting to fluctuating markets and customer demands. The expat community of the MDBC and the Netherlands Association in Malaysia is a great talent pool for companies looking to diversify their workforce.
We are therefore proud to introduce the MDBC Spouse Program. This program will enable member companies to tap into our expat talent pool for global growth.
