AXA Affin General Insurance Bhd bagged two awards at the 19th Malaysia-International HR Awards 2019 (MIHRM Awards) – the Grand Award for Employer of Choice and the Gold Award for Employer of Choice (Private Sector).

The ceremony was held on November 29 at the Istana Hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

The MIHRM Awards is an annual event organised by the Malaysian Institute of Human Resource Management, in affiliation with the International HR Institute, since 1999. It is also globally recognised as a benchmark for corporations with excellent HR practices that drive organisational growth and workforce transformation.

Emmanuel Nivet, CEO of AXA Affin General Insurance, said the company is honoured to be recognised for its HR transformation initiatives, as it works 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,” Nivet said. “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.”

Throughout 2019, AXA implemented various initiatives to improve employee engagement and well-being. This included the adoption of robotics process automation to reengineer labour intensive HR processes, and launching the AXAPRENEUR programme for employees, which has amounted to a total innovation value of MYR8.3 million (US$1.99 million). The company has also invested in learning and development programmes and partnered with online learning platforms to encourage employees to enhance their skills and knowledge.

It has also introduced AXA Well – a holistic and structured well-being programme focusing on wellness pillars (physical, community, financial, social/family, mindfulness, and interpersonal) to promote work-life integration.
