As a small, skill-intensive business, we need to offer a unique and attractive workplace environment. We benchmark our salaries against the marketplace, and seek to offer a competitive package consisting of a robust base salary, as well as performance based bonuses and subsidised private healthcare.
We maintain an employee handbook which is reviewed annually, and benchmarked against relevant labour law, as well as best practice. All employees are given a copy on joining the company, as well as a copy of any updates.
Diversity and work-life balance
We work hard, but do not require employees to work overtime, except at peak seasons and in connection with events and travel. All advisory staff are able to work flexible hours to accommodate personal commitments and to avoid traffic peak hours.
We value diversity and do not accept discrimination on any grounds. We always respect religious holidays, and ensure that individual staff are able to observe these. We also offer flexibility of working hours around prayer times.
As at September 2018, Helikonia has eight permanent employees. Five are Malaysian citizens; one is Bumiputra, one is Indian-Malaysian, three are Chinese-Malaysian, one is Indian-Singaporean and two are EU citizens.
