…to promote a community of harmony
…to strike a delicate balance of quality business and social wellness
- Sambu Group, The Coconut Family on Riau Province of East Sumatra
nce a barren land with scarce business activities, now a thriving vibrant community… the transition from rural area to today’s community of harmony with gainful employment is a conscientious effort towards contributing to the society, a core part of our corporate culture.
We believe in investment and employees are our best asset, only when employees welfare are well taken care of can a company grow in pride. As a socially responsible company, we strive to meet employees and their families needs so as to achieve happiness in our own little ways.
Implementation is key and we continuously develop three core sectors that give birth to a community of harmonious living.
- A healthy and safe working environment is created for each employee.
PT Pulau Sambu Kuala Enok, the coconut oil plant, and PT Pulau Sambu Guntung, the desiccated coconut and coconut milk plant, are accredited to Occupational Health and Safety Standard 18001
Safety trainings are given to new and existing employees periodically
- No child labour is allowed on site
Every shift of worker is provided one complimentary meal
- Fair remuneration
Minimum wage is always set above both industrial and government standards and increments are followed accordingly
Shift system is employed to ensure employees working hours are in line with industrial standards
Overtime is only required during peak periods and on voluntary basis only
All employees and their families, a total community of 50,000 on Riau Province, are provided with housing, educational and recreational facilities all at heavily subsidised rates, amounts that are affordable taking into considerations of their income. This is implemented to prevent wellness programme from being abused and at the same time ensuring adequate living standards for all.
- Educational facilities
Schools from kindergarten to secondary levels are built to provide basic education for children and equip them with social skills
All children are ferried to and from school at no charges, via the group’s specially constructed canal system
Educational system and curriculum are constantly upgraded to keep up with societal changes
These facilities are also open to non-employees, a move towards harmonious living for all.
In the pipeline, a 3 storey separate office building on Guntung site is now being converted into a hospital and due for completion by 2006, operational by 2007/2008.
At Sambu Group, we believe in fair trade.
Love makes the world go round,
Ethics make Sambu Group grow well!
