In Sahara, we believe that taking the right step in sourcing young talents and developing them into a
formidable force is critical to our business success and sustainability. The Sahara Talent &
Entrepreneurship Program (STEP) was therefore borne out of the desire to reposition the Group’s talent
management strategy in line with our business expansion and future ambition.

The objective is to focus on developing entrepreneurship leadership skills of young talents and
to improve their business acumen, strategic thinking & relationship management required to support
growth strategies in the group.

The one-year program is structured systematically to expose the young talents with entrepreneurial
mindset to all areas of the business as it reflects the diversity of roles across board. The development programme will include two or three rotations that combine on-the-job learning with formal training opportunities with blended foundational skill training, in-house classroom training program, feedback sessions, hands-on projects, coaching and mentoring opportunities.

The young talents will be given stimulating hands-on roles, and have the opportunity to not only understand the culture and core
values of the company but to live by them.

If you want to grow and make an impact as a business leader, explore a world of possibilities and
harness your potential in a vibrant young environment, then the Sahara Talent & Entrepreneurship
