Employee Testimonials
I joined Teejay on 4th May 2001 as a Technical Team Member in the Knitting department. I was a member of the Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) team representing my department for 5 years. In the year 2008, I was promoted to a Senior Technician position in Knitting. As a Senior Technician, I actively participated in all the projects of the Knitting department and the TJL cost saving and productivity improvement projects. During that period I was lucky to become the Vice President of the JCC and then President of the JCC. Leading the JCC was a turning point in my career. I was able to learn how to manage people, adapting to changes and leading the team to achieve our goals. This helped immensely to promote me to Junior Executive in 2010. As an Executive, I continue to participate in several company projects (including welfare, cost saving, productivity improvements, and health and safety). Another chance I got during this period was to exchange the knowledge and experience I had gained during my career. I was able to participate in several induction programmes with new recruits, management trainees, in-plant trainees and also, outside visitors.

Looking back to the start of my career, I am really proud of what I am today. Starting as an associate and coming into an executive position, I worked hard. I developed the skills to be an executive, and the management has given me the opportunity and leadership to get to this level. I really believe in TJL and feel everybody can come to this level if they believe in themselves and in doing hard work.
