A working environment that supports women during the different stages of their lives
Before I joined AXA, I worked as a sales representative. In that job, I felt joy in being able to achieve sales targets as a result of having devised well thought-out approaches under challenging conditions. However, given the absence of career development pathways, I decided to change careers and move into a new environment. Soon after I started job hunting, I came across AXA’s recruitment slogan—“work as a team.” It hit me right in the heart. I found the culture of an entire company making concerted efforts toward achieving its goal appealing. I remember having a strong desire to work at AXA.
I had made it a point that my next workplace would be one that supports women through the different events and stages in their lives, such as having and raising children. AXA’s solid employee benefit program offering maternity leave and shorter working hours among others was attractive in this regard. When I started working at the contact center as a customer adviser after joining the company, I found that many of the operators there had indeed returned from maternity leave. Once you decide to return to work, there is a support system is in place that includes shorter working hours, which will reduce the burden on women. In my opinion, it is a pleasant workplace for women, enabling them to develop their career over the long term. We can rest assured that we can continue working after we get married or give birth.
