CYBERJAYA, 20 September – Malaysia’s latest re-domiciling effort, workforce and talent analytics platform – CXS International, known as CXS Analytics Sdn Bhd in Malaysia (CXS) – revealed more details today on its decision for moving its global headquarters to Malaysia and how it will continue to engage its partners around the world. That and what it intends to do once the transition is complete are the main topics at the first CXS Global Partner Conference for Southeast Asia.
Held in the heart of Cyberjaya, the event hosted 19 CXS global partners and other potential clients as they sit in and gain insights on the critical updates from the talent analytics service provider since it uprooted its entire Norwegian operations and moved it to Malaysia.
While there are various ecosystem benefits, one of the primary driving factors is the latent talent pool Malaysia has to offer. CXS believes having its operations right at the source of this readily-engaged next-gen workforce is a critical necessity. The other main focus is how Malaysia is making its mark as a nation that is poised to lead as a transformative digital economy.
“Malaysia is well placed to take its position at the forefront of the digital economy in this region. Not only does the government support an incredible array of programmes to accelerate Malaysia’s development, but industry and higher education are also aligned in their focus to help train the next generation of technical and knowledge workers to support a dynamic and expanding digital workforce. At CXS, we want to play a key part in that transformation by putting critical data-driven, evidence-based insights in the hands of job seekers, policy makers and educators,” said Jan Lambrechts, CEO of CXS Analytics Sdn Bhd.
To-date, CXS has taken the first steps to show its commitment for this re-domiciling effort, such as securing a 7,000sqft space in Cyberjaya for its global headquarters, moving to relocate major aspects of all its global partners to Malaysia, and confirming its plans to build Malaysia’s first Talent Development Digital Hub.
“Locking in CXS for the re-domiciling programme with Malaysia proves, once again, that Malaysia is a suitable country for global companies to re-locate onto and ramp up their operations further. Not only do we have the capabilities these businesses need, our goals to accelerate our digital economy by building up a ready-to-engage talent pool and become a major hub for these innovations directly address the immediate needs of various tech industries,” added Norhizam Abdul Kadir, Vice President of Growth Ecosystem Development, MDEC.
Besides revealing and further discussing the re-domiciling process with its global partners and the next intended steps moving forward, the CXS Global Partners Conference also featured two other major segments – the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between CXS and SEDANIA INNOVATOR Berhad as well as the "Future Proofing Talent Development for the Region” panel. The discussion included Norhizam; Kenny Tan, Country Manager, Malaysia and Thailand for ALIBABA Cloud; Mahadzer Arshad, CEO of SEDANIA INNOVATOR Berhad; and Lambrechts as moderator.

As for the MoU, the signing confirms the appointment of SEDANIA INNOVATOR Berhad as CXS’ first Malaysia re-seller and technology transfer partner. This partnership will open the doors to Malaysian businesses that are keen on engaging in-depth analytics for workforce development and scaling.
"Workplace and Talent Analytics are now vital management tools in defining human capital as they are used to increase business productivity and performance. The Sedania VIP24 platform, which now offers CXS services, will ensure businesses will get the very best out of their talents,” shared Datuk Azrin Mohd. Noor, Founder and Managing Director of SEDANIA INNOVATOR Berhad.
Beyond the conference and signing, CXS has also teased of even bigger plans that in the pipeline as it looks to engage the Malaysian business landscape even more.
“It’s really about scaling up on what we can do. Having moved all our key operations to Malaysia means we are in position to really step up our performance as the immediate region has so much potential to offer in terms of talent engagement and business matching. It’s really a matter of what we should be doing first if CXS is to really leverage on the positive aspects of this global migration of talent and workforce processes,” Lambrechts noted.
