Nurturing Future Leaders
At Axiata, we uphold our core values of uncompromising integrity and exceptional performance. We support, train and encourage the 13,000 people (excluding Idea and M1) working across Axiata to ensure that they have the right capabilities, commitment and enthusiasm to achieve our business goals. Our aim is to attract, develop and retain the very best people by having an inclusive workplace in which talent is recognised and developed. We listen to our employees to gain a better understanding of their views on how we can improve our performance and create a satisfying work experience for everyone. We monitor employee engagement and satisfaction levels through our annual group-wide people survey, and use this to drive improvements across Axiata.
The Group has spent more than USD10 million annually in learning and development. We have successfully developed unique leadership development programmes in partnership with global top business schools. These include a joint programme by Axiata and INSEAD, facilitated by INSEAD at its campus in Singapore, a Telco mini-MBA programme and a "War Game" business simulation programme. These world-class programmes will ensure our talent deepen their industry knowledge and their leadership competencies, especially in strategic thinking, business acumen and execution capabilities.
At Axiata, we uphold our role to create jobs in the markets we operate in and provide the opportunities to develop capabilities, progress and skills within the organisation. In line with the Group's proposition and value, we aspire to hire the right talent locally while providing clear career opportunities for them to grow and contribute within the Group, locally and across the region.
In establishing the 'Axiata Talent Factory', we are also conscious of developing a regional talent pool that is agile, competitive and committed in effectively driving and transforming our business. Our development and training programmes ensure we have the skills and talent needed to expand our business and sustain our future. We help our employees across the OpCos gain new skills and experiences through formal training, on the job experience, coaching and mentoring.
At Axiata, we are committed to helping our employees to further develop their functional skills, leadership development as well as personal effectiveness. Functional skills development focuses on developing and refining the technical skills of our people towards becoming the subject matter experts in their areas of specialisation - technology, marketing, sales, finance, customer analytics, strategy, human resource, and internal audit, legal and regulatory.Read More
