The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) has announced a minimum wage for its full-time team members of 40% more than the government mandate. This payment scheme became effective May 1, 2022.


Alan Pryor, general manager of KLCC, said that "building on our commitment to protect our team members' welfare and well-being, our minimum wage revision factors in the rising cost of living in Kuala Lumpur. Our team members are our greatest asset and as we resume business in full capacity after two years, this decision is not only timely but also the right one."
„Improved wage and compensation policies need to be implemented industry-wide.“

Pryor also shared that the hospitality sector is facing a huge labour shortage as Malaysia welcomes international events and tourists back to its shores, "In the aftermath of COVID-19, we are dealing with a reduced supply chain, decreasing workforce and stiff competition locally and regionally. Improved wage and compensation policies need to be implemented industry-wide to attract fresh talent and to boost current staff morale."
