With more than 68 years in the region, we have grown from being an insurance provider and payer to becoming a strong partner of our customers, empowering them to lead better lives.

AXA Gulf recognises that our people are the key differentiator of our performance and our strongest asset. We aim to attract, develop and retain talent across the region as we believe this is vital for driving success and transformation, to continue being a leading insurance provider in the region.

We believe that a diverse workforce is essential in today’s global market and we are committed to cultivating an environment where everyone is treated equally and afforded the same opportunities to thrive and grow. Our diverse workforce, comprising of more than 49 nationalities is what makes us a preferred employer brand.

To achieve our vision to innovate, we source the best talent who put the customers’ needs at the heart of everything they do, and support our employees to achieve their career goals. We look for those who have the drive and the resilience to deliver the best level of service to our customers; and encourage those who want to make a difference to be a part of our future.


Prioritising our people

Our employees are the driving force behind our success, and to help them grow further, we offer support and encouragement through a variety of channels.

At AXA we have created a holistic Wellbeing programme to support employees throughout the employee life cycle.  We understand the importance of physical activity, good nutrition and the impact of finance, family and mental wellbeing in our day to day lives.  In an effort to promote health and wellbeing amongst AXA Gulf employees in a holistic approach, employees at AXA have access the AXA Wellbeing for Employees (AWE) programme.  

The programme focuses on four pillars; Physical, Mental, Financial and Family Wellbeing.  As part of the programme, we offer a number of various talks, activities and educational information to support these four pillars.

We are incredibly proud of the amazing mix of cultures, backgrounds and lifestyles of our employees around the world. Ensuring that every one of our people can bring their whole selves to work is really important. It helps create a culture of diversity and inclusion, and a truly open work environment where employees feel respected and treated with dignity, and where diversity of thought and expression are valued and appreciated.

We continuously look for ways to evolve the way we work to create more opportunities to connect and collaborate with each other. We are currently introducing a New ways of working work program that provides  our employees increased flexibility and empowerment in terms of how and where they work.  

In addition, we offer a number of exclusive benefits to our employees, including one of the best parental leave policies in the region. We provide sixteen (16) weeks of maternity and four (4) weeks of paternity leave to support new families at AXA.

Moreover, we strongly encourage recognition across the board via our AXA Ambassador Award program, acknowledging and crediting those who uphold our values of Integrity, Customer Focus, Courage and collaboration by being part of ONE AXA. By joining AXA Gulf, you become part of a global family, in which we offer discounted share plan options for you to take part in the financial success of our company.


Focusing on learning and development

Committed to our employees’ development, we provide diverse learning opportunities and access to a variety of resources—empowering them to continually learn, anywhere, anytime. Our aim is to build the capabilities of tomorrow and a pipeline of highly motivated and engaged talent to meet the demands of our ambition.

We are building a culture of autonomous learning by providing employees with access to state-of-the-art learning platforms, the best online courses, blended learning journeys and workplace experiences. Our digital learning platform provides over 600 new micro-learning modules whilst our partnership with Coursera allows our employees access to courses from world-class universities, to learn and grow in their careers.

We want to provide different and new ways of learning to equip our colleagues with the necessary, relevant and in-demand skills they need to thrive in tomorrow’s workplace and economy.

We recognise that building talent capabilities is vital to our success. Our highly regarded Accelerated Talent Programme (ATP) prepares our future leaders through a unique learning experience, enabling them to reach their potential.
