As the safety and health of its employees remain as top priority, Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) wishes to inform that the Company is further strengthening its Special Working Arrangements, particularly to address the operations of its contact centres, during the Movement Control Order (MCO), which has now been extended to 14 April 2020.
Effective 26 March 2020, all TM Contact Centres nationwide will operate from 7.00 am to 9.00 pm. This includes TM call centre at 100, Live Chat, Social Media and e-mail.
While the working shifts for its contact centre agents remain at two (2) sessions per day, the number of customer service agents per shift will be reduced and the agents on duty will continue to exercise social distancing where each agent are being separated by one (1) empty workstation (approximately one (1) meter distance from each other). Agents from the 2nd shift will not be using the workstations used by the agents in the 1st shift.

We will not compromise on this and continue to implement stringent safety measures amongst our Warga TM, especially those who need to be working at their respective office during this extended MCO period. We sincerely ask our customers to bear with us as there may be potential delay in our response to your queries and requests due to the changes in the contact centre operations hours and high call volume expected. As a national provider of essential service, we will continue to adapt our daily operations to ensure the safety of our employees within the guidelines and restrictions guided by the Government, whilst we remain committed to deliver smooth continuity of our services for Malaysians nationwide; supported by a robust business continuity plan.
