Businesses are increasingly trying to embrace their employees, to show them that they’re valued and appreciated, and create the best possible work environment for them. People excel and reach their full potential not only when they earn well, but also when they’re in a happy and healthy environment where they can see themselves grow. Want to join a company that’s on top of its game when it comes to that healthy and positive work environment? Then this scoop is definitely for you!
Hands down, a company that is arguably leading this movement in the country is AXA Life Insurance Egypt! For the second year in a row, AXA was named the Top Employer in Egypt. To be able to not only earn that title, but to also retain it for the second year in a row, must have been a very dynamic and complex process. Their model is a perfect example to be followed by other businesses.
AXA ensures that all the policies are updated and developed to maintain the best working environment for staff, from recruiting talents that belong to their positive culture, to creating and applying the best policies to help them reach their maximum potential. But it doesn’t stop at recruitment, it only just begins there!
Firstly, the company has a recognition program where they promote AXA Stars; employees and teams that embrace a hardworking and innovative spirit in projects. They also have a unique annual competition called “Bright Ideas” that encourages the staff to come up with creative ideas that benefit the company.
In addition to appreciating the hardworking employees and promoting a positive work environment, AXA has a unique benefits program for its employees that isn’t one size fits all. They have a customized, “Customer Centric” approach towards employees where each one gets the exact benefit that they need. Imagine being treated as a customer in your own company! An employee that is passionate about fitness would like an offer for the gym, while a parent would appreciate special rates at a kinder garden; they recognize that each person’s needs are different!
Appreciating hard workers and providing customized benefits are amazing ways to ensure a great working environment for your employees. However, that’s not it for AXA; they also provide their employees with everything they need to develop themselves.
They have an e-learning platform that gives staff access to thousands of courses in different fields, all certified by international universities. They also have a Women Leadership Program that started in 2019 and will continue this year to help women in middle management prepare for top management positions.
Covering these three essential aspects has kept AXA in the top employer spot in Egypt for the second year in a row. They appreciate the employees and encourage them to work hard, they provide compensation and benefits that fit each person’s needs, and they help their employees to develop themselves and empower their growth. What else can one ask for?
