What is MYWiT?

MyDigitalWorkforce Work in Tech (MYWiT) is an initiative created by Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) to incentivize employers to hire fresh graduates or unemployed/retrenched Malaysians via digital re-skilling or upskilling. By offering salary and training incentives for companies to hire digital talent, this initiative also aims to meet the strong demand for digital business services jobs, and higher value digital tech jobs.

General Assembly Malaysia (Akademi GA) is a partner in providing training courses under this initiative.

Who can apply for MYWiT?

This initiative is open to employers in Malaysia who are:

  • • Offering employment for a minimum of 12 months to fresh graduates or individuals who have been unemployed for at least 2 months
  • • Incorporated in Malaysia under the Companies Act 1965 or the Companies Act 2014
  • • Minimum capital of RM20,000
  • • Not a public-sector employer, federal or state statutory body, or local authority
  • • Not in any close business/family relationship with any of MDEC’s directors or employees
  • • Not dormant or subjected to any liquidation or winding up order

The incentives apply to employees in Digital Tech or Digital Business Service roles whose employment commencement date is anytime between 5th of April 2021 and 30th April 2022.

Can an employee who was hired before I applied for MYWiT get the training & salary subsidies too?

Yes, as long as the commencement date of the employee (as stated in their Letter of Employment) is anytime from 5th of April 2021 onwards.

Can I know more about the salary and training incentives?

Training benefits: Up to RM8,000 subsidy per employee to enrol in a relevant General Assembly course.

Salary subsidies: 40% monthly salary subsidy for the first 6 months of a newly-hired employee, capped at RM2,600 per month. The minimum salary requirement is RM2,000 a month.

Can I apply for the salary incentives only and skip the training benefits?

No, this initiative is aimed to support digital upskilling, hence training is required for each newly-hired employee. Any employee whose salary is subsidised via this initiative will be required to enrol in subsidised training in a digital skill relevant to their role or position.

How many employees can I apply for to benefit from this initiative?

In support of employers of all sizes, there is no minimum number of employees required. Employers can apply up to a maximum of 500 pax subject to approval.

How will the reimbursement of the incentives be done?

Employers need to submit claims & supporting documents on MDEC's e-invoice system to receive reimbursement. It will be paid to the employer on a monthly basis via online bank transfer.
