Dato Michael Tio DMT

A day with The DMT

PKT Logistics is operating in an industry where you would almost certainly never hear the words ‘people centric’ and ‘fun corporate culture’ be frequently mentioned let alone ingrained into every aspect of its business. PKT even prides itself as being Facebook compulsory! Definitely unheard of even in many industries.

The latter because when you’re in the middle of the atlantic, a mutiny could cause irreversible damage that would send you off-course or worse yet, sink the ship. It is imperative that the ship is manned by a crew who work well together and trust each other. Continue reading “Shipmates”

“We don’t compete. We’ve created our culture and we’re continuously evolving. In the end it’s up to the jobseeker to decide which organization suits his/her desires values and goals.”
