Humans:​ Natural Resource or Man-Made?

It is 4.20 am and we have been working super hard preparing for the launch of Workforce. We hope that you will spend sometime on our site and get to know the mix of tech, products and services we offer the ‘workers of the world”.

We created Workforce as a starting point to introduce fellow Malaysians to a new way of working. A method where we actively seek to automate workflows. Why? Because as humans, we are so much more than data entry donkeys tasked to repetitive manual labour.

Our true potential is problem solving. We have an inbuilt ability to process logic, reason and solve problems. If we didn't, we wouldn't have risen to the top of the food chain.

The issue is that for the longest time, organisations required dumbed down folk to do the donkey work. As we progressed, our environments didn't progress fast enough. Now, we have over-skilled humans spending their lives doing work that we could train a chimp to do. A slight exaggeration, but you get the point. We are so much more.

With tech and the right attitude, we are able empower our human capital to reach greater heights. Whether it’s at home, work or in society.

If we all increased our efficiency by just 1% a year imagine what the world would be like in 5, 10, 15 years? We would use up far less natural resources, improve our quality of life and have so much more time to spend with those we love.

If life is a sum of our experiences, work takes up a quite a chunk of that. How happy are we really at work? The goal of any company aside from profit is to build micro networks of interactions between diverse groups of people coming together to solve problems and achieve common goals.

We believe that it is time to connect these micro networks together and build greater synergy amongst the Workforce. The more people connected together means problems get solved faster. And if problems get solved faster, we all get to go home slightly earlier and have a little bit more time with the most important micro-networks of them all, our friends, families and loved ones.

We end this introduction with the wise words of an old native american quote— ‘the strength of the wolf is the pack, the strength of the pack is the wolf’
