| CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR)

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large.

As Corporate Social Responsibility gains momentum in the business community, we recognise that we still have much room for improvement to become truly sustainable. Corporate Responsibility has now started to seep into our company, established through the way we engage with our stakeholders, the way we think about giving back to what we take from communities and the environment as well as our continuous commitment to build the best value proposition for the people we serve.

No corporate can live apart from the community it serves. That fundamental belief of our founders underpins the approach towards corporate responsibility throughout Pantai Premier Pathology. Our journey is about an organization that takes its social responsibility to heart. It is about strengthening local communities, promoting equal opportunities in the workplace, developing human capital, enhancing our customers’ experience and improving the lives of those around us.
