PT Rekayasa Industri (Rekind), as a nation-owned company engaged in providing Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services is aggressively strengthening it’s role in the national development. Even in the midst of the onslaught of Covid-19, Rekind continues to strive to maintain its consistency to keep moving optimally in encouraging growth and achieving performance through good corporate governance.
This strategic step was emphasized by Alex Dharma Balen, President Director of Rekind. The figure who has led Rekind since September 2020, understands the direction of the company’s journey, especially when facing the complex challenges of a pandemic era like present. The most vital strategic step and one of Alex Dharma Balen’s main concerns is to maintain the existence of work in all lines of projects that are currently being carried out by Rekind. This is because there are many national strategic projects whose work is entrusted to the EPC company, which was founded on August 12, 1981.
The strategy he emphasized was to maintain the health and safety of Rekind’s human resources (HR) from the Covid-19 pandemic, through preventing the spread of the virus and maintaining productivity. In addition, evaluating the impact of a pandemic on company business opportunities, by paying attention to market rationalization and business opportunities as well as updating market data during a pandemic. An equally important step is to evaluate the impact of a pandemic on each project that is running through risk mitigation and increased support. Alex Dharma Balen and other Directors also continue to closely evaluate the impact of the pandemic on the company’s work plan so that it can run optimally.
As for strategies he put forward, Alex Dharma Balen was awarded as the Best Talent Development CEO of the SOE Subsidiary at the Anugerah BUMN 2021 event. The award certificate was handed over directly by Tanri Abeng, former State Minister for State-Owned Enterprises, to Triyani Utaminingsih, Director of Finance and HR, Rekind, representing Alex Dharma Balen, at The Ritz Carlton, Mega Kuningan, Jakarta, Thursday (8/4).
“We really appreciate the award given through Anugerah BUMN 2021. This indirectly contributes to the growth and achievement of company performance during the Covid-19 Pandemic through good corporate governance, highly competitive human resource management and maximizing the company’s real contribution to society,” said Alex Dharma Balen in his statement.
To achieve that, it is not easy, Alex Dharma Balen directs it through organizational transformation which is based on organizational improvement and focuses on EPC development strategies which are On Schedule, On Budget and On Quality. Through this Transformation, Rekind remains committed to engaging in the energy, chemical and mineral sectors, but with a wider contribution through technology development, investment and synergy in every project it undertakes.
This effort is in line with the current Rekind business development initiative which focuses on the development of new and renewable energy (EBT), either directly or indirectly. “This initiative will be further developed to support the direction of transformation towards smart and lean EPC, technology development in the fields of renewable energy and minerals, circular economy and energy conservation. These are the important steps that Rekind has taken today and have become an important contribution in improving the company’s existence in a sustainable manner,” said Alex Dharma Balen.
Hopefully, through the strategy and transformation it has developed, Rekind will be able to realize itself to become an integrated world-class EPC company, because the fact is that at the national and global levels Rekind’s performance always gets the best recognition. Its contribution to increasing economic growth in Indonesia is also increasingly visible.
