AXA Affin General Insurance Berhad (AXA) wrapped the year with 2 prestigious awards received — the Grand Award for Employer of Choice and Gold Award for Employer of Choice (Private Sector) at the 19th Malaysia-International HR Awards 2019 (MIHRM Awards). The ceremony was held at Istana Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 29th November 2019.
Earlier this month, AXA was awarded the HR Asia Best Companies to Work for in Asia 2019 for the 3rd consecutive year, solidifying the Company’s position as one of the most inspiring and sought-after companies to work for not only in the country, but also in Asia.
Highly coveted at national level, the MIHRM Awards is an annual event organised by Malaysian Institute of Human Resource Management in affiliation with the International HR Institute since 1999. It is also globally recognised as an acclaimed benchmark for corporations with excellent HR practices that drive organisational growth and workforce transformation.
Emmanuel Nivet, CEO of AXA, said the Company is honoured to be recognised for its HR transformation initiatives while working towards its 2020 strategic roadmap to support the company’s continuous growth.
“The recipe for our success lies in our Company’s culture and DNA — we are committed to build a culture of innovators in our effort to transition from payer to a partner to our customers. Our people are our most valuable asset as they drive our transformation journey, which is why we believe it is important to invest and build capabilities in our workforce to develop their personal and professional growth, and importantly to better serve our customers,” Emmanuel said.
Throughout the year, AXA has taken bold steps to revolutionise its HR practices. Some of the notable initiatives in its digitalisation journey include introducing Robotics Process Automation to reengineer labor intensive HR processes and launching the AXAPRENEUR programme for employees to implement cutting-edge projects which have amounted to a total innovation value of RM8.3 million. The Company has also invested handsomely in Learning and Development programmes and partnered with online learning platforms to encourage employees to empower their own learning development.
AXA strongly believes that positive employee experience is intrumental to its success. Hence, it has introduced AXA Well — a holistic and structured well-being programme focusing on 6 wellness pillars (physical, community, financial, social/family, mindfulness and interpersonal) to promote work-life integration.
