Established in 1993, Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad (PSMB) is a dynamic organisation under the purview of the Ministry of Human Resources. Governed by the Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad Act 2001 (PSMB Act 2001), PSMB was given the mandate by the Malaysian Government to catalyse the development of competent local workforce that will contribute to the nation’s vision of becoming a high-income economy

Since its inception, PSMB has evolved from managing a sizeable fund to becoming a one-stop-centre for providing novel human capital development solutions to the critical mass of Malaysian small medium enterprises.

Well positioned to offer robust and prudent solutions, it aims to have Malaysia move up the Global Competitiveness Index by enhancing both regional and global competitiveness, propelling the country towards being a high income nation by Year 2020.

In line with the Eleventh Malaysia Plan (11MP), the Malaysian Government also initiated several programmes that focus on accelerating human capital development through four major areas. These include:
