BEFORE WE BEGIN…
Please take a moment to read the following notes below:
Make yourself a cup of tea / coffee / favourite drink. It’s going to be a long read from here on out so please ensure you are properly hydrated!
Make yourself comfortable. Sit in your favourite arm chair, relax on a garden bench in the park, enjoy the aroma of coffee in your favourite coffee shop – anything that will let you feel at peace, be calm and able to absorb the myriad of information and philosophy that we are sharing with you.
If you have a set of earphones / headphones that allows you to listen to your favourite tunes to help you relax, get in the mood and be at peace while reading – so much the better! We want you to be immersed on this journey, listening to our arguments on what makes us different from others, and on how we strive to stand out against the competition.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
CONDUCIVENESS, HEALTH, SAFETY, SECURITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
From operating our Cross Peninsular Cable System (CPCS), connecting Thailand to Singapore via 5 routes across Peninsular Malaysia, managing the Sistem Kabel Rakyat 1Malaysia (SKR1M), connecting Peninsular Malaysia to East Malaysia, working with our Global Partners such as Facebook, Google, SK Telekoms to name a few in managing the Asia Pacific Gateway (APG), Asia Africa Europe-1 (AAE-1), UNITY and Faster Cable System across South Asia, North America and Europe, TIME has proven, and will continue to prove, that in serving a successful, profitable Fibre Optics Communications Company, we want to make sure that everybody working with us works in a conducive working environment – with utmost regard to our Employees’ health, safety and security, the environment we work in and the communities we serve.
In the telecommunications business, we owe it to our Employees to make sure that we work in the safest possible manner. Senior management provides strategy and leadership, but all of us are responsible in producing an operational environment that is sustainable.
When we hire our Employees – the first thing we will look at is Competency. This is always the first thing to consider and as to whether you have the necessary skills, experiences and education to be successful in the tasks that you need to perform.
On top of this, we don’t want such Employees to remain in the same tasks forever, but we want people who will find ways to deliver on functions that require more effort and creativity. So we look for people that have potential for growth and the ability and willingness to take on more responsibility.
It goes without saying too, that it’s important that any new Employee joining us gets along with their colleagues; and more importantly, how they will get along with potential clients, customers and partners. So it’s really important that you have the willingness and ability to be harmonious with your prospective colleagues and superior. Lack of compatibility only means big problems!
We also want to know whether a candidate is serious about working at TIME for the long term, or are just passing through, and always job hopping and looking for something better. Long-term commitment is what we want, because we are a Company of sustainable high performance and long-term growth.
Though not the first thing mentioned, Integrity and Honesty is paramount in TIME. Your values must be aligned with our values. We want people who are honest. We want people who always tell the truth. We want people who keep promises. We want people who are able to be reproached when reproach is needed. We value selflessness and being a teamplayer.
Every business has a culture or a way that dictates people’s behaviour and interaction with each other, including ours. TIME’s culture is based on certain values and behavioural expectations that influence the behaviour of our leaders and our Employees. Employees who reflect the Company’s culture will of course be less disruptive to business and operational priorities.
From a compensation point of view, as an Employer, we want to be sure that we pay competitively based on market standards. Internal equity is very important. We also offer attractive middle-term and long-term rewards for our high-performing Employees: and we hope that you are one of them!
EFFICIENCY & COST MANAGEMENT
We are competitive by containing costs and striving to be continuously lean and efficient. We attack inefficiencies and waste, push for the best possible value in our spending and purchases, and we never let out guard down in being efficient. We use ratios and analytics to ensure that we remain profitable. Working in TIME is about being efficient. The better we attack costs, the more competitive our products and services will be, the more resources will be made available to grow the business and the better the rewards for our hardworking Employees.
Our personality is all about how we behave collectively as a family in TIME. This is crucial to the harmony and serenity of our business as we are very particular about how we come across to the people around us. How we communicate – to everyone, internally as well as externally is very important to us. At the end of the day, we are at the very basic levels human beings. Thus, we need to remember that we are dealing with people who are able to emote, think and feel and are multi-faceted as compared to robots, who are tasked to complete a single process and are emotionless.
COLLABORATION & INNOVATION
In short, collaboration helps innovation. We realise that there is so much shared knowledge, experience and passion across TIME, finding ways to unleash these elements will give us the best advantage of opportunities and to tackle problems.
We celebrate Collaboration. We want our people to work together: with internal and external partners to complete tasks and achieve our goals.
We celebrate Innovation. We want new ideas, creative thoughts, and new imaginations in form of tools or method. We continuously want to implement better solutions that meet new requirements, existing market needs and even unarticulated / future needs.
MORE IN THE WAY WE WORK
In building a unique, fun and challenging workplace, there are a few things that we keep in mind. This is important to us because when we do this, then our people will have the eagerness to come to work, to give their all and produce their best. We believe in putting the emphasis on producing great results, challenging the norm and exceeding people expectations. Mundane and predictable goals and expectations are not TIME.
We also make it a point to focus on real work and adding value, rather than getting obsessed with unnecessary bureaucracy and over-the-top processes.
We keep things simple when we can. We believe in being fair, open and transparent and flexible, quick to act and to react.
WE DON’T BELIEVE . . .
In excessive hierarchies, levels, grades, job titles, protocols, prestige and other things just for the sake of “doing what others do”or “this always how we do things around here”. We are totally against power distance. The higher an Employee progresses in TIME, the higher the accountability and responsibility.
Everything we do, must be done the TIME way. And it is thus important, that only the right people join TIME. If you are amongst those who are far from more “conventional”organisations – then TIME is the perfect place for you! But if you wish to bring in the “conventional”way of doing things to TIME, then we may not be the best place for you.
OUR UNITY AND DIVERSITY
We create a diverse, positive, respectful and fun working environment for people of all backgrounds. the way we promote and recognise our people is through their talent and performance.
We are committed to giving equal employment opportunities to everyone; and we do so by creating an environment free from any discrimination, whether it is due to skin colour, religion, race, gender, political orientation, age, marital status, ancestry, socioeconomic status, physical disabilities, or whatever they may be. We do not, and will never accept bullying, harassment or any other behaviour that can be seen as degrading and threatening to anyone or to the organisation. We focus on what brings people together rather than on what keeps them apart.
WHAT ARE OUR VALUES?
The TIME Values represents us in the organisation, defines our behaviours and our interactions with each other. All products, services, even the way we present ourselves to our customers is defined by these values. It is our tenent, and hence it is important that everyone who becomes a part of TIME learn its key points.
Who says if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it? We say, break it, so you can fix it. We’re not afraid to do something differently from our competitors so we can be better
(of a person, action, or idea) showing a willingness to take risks; confident and courageous.
“a bold attempt to be the no. 1 Fibre Broadband provider”
When it’s all been said, we get things done. At TIME, we’re not just try-ers, we’re do-ers, and we believe there’s always a solution to every problem
characterised by or exhibiting a determination or willingness to take action and achieve results.
”We can do better than our Competitors, working with even less resources than them!”
Time waits for no problem to solve itself. We’re on the case faster than customers can say “help”, coming up with solutions based on real needs
moving fast or doing something in a short time.
“we are a lean organisation as compared to our competitors, hence we need to move quickly against them”
prompt to understand, think, or learn; intelligent.
”the movement from 3G to 4G was quicker than 2G to 4G. We need to be ready for 7G, and not wait for 5G!”
Our Value Proposition to YOU!
We’ve been awarded the Fastest Broadband in Malaysia by Ookla, based on analysis of Speedtest Intelligence data for Q3-Q4 2018!
We have subsea investments in UNITY, Asia Pacific Gateway (APG), Asia-Africa-Europe-1 (AAE-1) and the Faster cable system, covering two thirds of the world.
