A special aid of RM2,000 will be given out to some 1,500 Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) staff members in conjunction with the company’s 40th anniversary, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak announced (15 March), Malay Mail Online reported.

The incentive, to celebrate PNB’s success over the course of its 40 years, will be distributed in May.

"I was told a bonus has already been distributed. As chairman of Yayasan Pelaburan Bumiputra (YPB), I have approved the high bonus," he said at the celebration.

"It isn't easy to be able to celebrate 40 years. In conjunction of this anniversary, I would like to announce that a special aid of RM2,000 will be given to all PNB staff, and this will be done in May.

"This too is so the Hari Raya celebration can be more joyful. I once again wish PNB a happy 40th anniversary and I believe the future will be more prosperous," Najib added.

Najib also launched PNB's new corporate identity in line with transformation initiatives under STRIVE-15 - a plan launched in November 2016, aimed at transforming PNB into a world-class investment house by 2022 through the implementation of 15 initiatives under the plan.

Also present at the celebration were Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani and PNB group chairman Tan Sri Abdul Wahid Omar.
