Our Commitment to People Development

At Axiata, we are committed to helping people learn, develop and enhance their functional skills, their leadership capabilities as well as their personal effectiveness.

Functional skills development focuses on developing and sharpening the technical skills of our people towards becoming the best-in-class in their areas of expertise - technology, marketing, sales, finance, customer analytics, strategy, human resource, internal audit, regulatory and legal.

Our leadership development centres on nurturing leaders who think before they act and act according to the values that the organisation embraces. The leadership development revolves around the 7 Axiata Leadership Competencies:

Fundamentally, we recognise that leadership is a practice by nature. Hence, our leadership development programmes address the dimensions of science (learning the process, know-how and facts), craft (acquiring the practical experiences) as well as art (building the ability to draw insight and form visions).

We also think that personal effectiveness is an important area of development. Hence, learning and development is not about fitting everyone into the one mould, but is about allowing everyone to be the best they can be.

We recognise that learning and development may come through many methods and forms. Hence, at Axiata, we offer 4 development platforms and activities for our people:

 

 

 

At Axiata, we want to help our people progress in their careers and provide opportunities beyond the home-country operating company. When you join any of our operating companies, the opportunities that are opened up to you are across The Group.

Our talent pipeline operates on a common framework across The Group. It enables our people to envision their career progression in their home-country company as well as with any other operating companies within Axiata.

We also recognise that there are individuals in the organisation with aspiration and capacity to progress at a faster pace. Our 3 tiered Accelerated Development Programmes (ADP) focus on different groups of people and their career development and progression.

Group Accelerated Development Programme (GADP)

aims to provide targeted and stretching developmental opportunities for our senior managers to accelerate their development and readiness for future top leadership roles across The Group.

Operating Company (OpCo) Accelerated Development Programme (OADP)

aims to provide targeted and stretching developmental opportunities for our senior managers to accelerate their development and readiness for future top leadership roles across The Group.

Young Talent Programme aims to accelerate the development

of fresh graduates with high potential at the start of their career. ADP provides varying development opportunities such as workshops, intensive coursework, participation in special projects/taskforce, network sessions or a job change with a possibility of relocation. These opportunities require a great deal of commitment and time from our people, but will allow them to learn and grow at an accelerated pace.
