MAMPU has undertaken the initiative to enhance the existing Public Sector 5S Practice in a rebranding exercise which introduced the Public Sector Conducive Ecosystem or better known as EKSA. This move is in line with efforts to strengthen the organisational culture of high performance and innovation among public sector agencies by providing a conducive environment, work culture and positive values for public servants.
