KUALA LUMPUR: Maybank has clinched the Top Graduate Employer of the Year Award at the annual Malaysia’s Leading 100 Graduate Employers Award.
In a statement on Thursday, the group said it was placed first in the Banking and Financial Services category for the fourth consecutive year.
The bank also won first place for both Best Innovation on Campus for its ‘Maybank Go Ahead. Challenge’ and Best Internship Experience.
It was runner up for Best Management Trainee Programme in Banking & Financial Services for its Global Maybank Apprentice Programme and Finalist for Best Social Media Usage.
Maybank’s win as Top Employer of the Year makes the bank the first financial services group ever to win the award, as voted by students and fresh graduates.
The award comes after holding first place in the Banking and Services category for four consecutive years, as well as second place in overall rankings last year.
Group chief human capital officer Nora Abd Manaf said that the group’s progression in the rankings over the years is a reflection of its continuous efforts in line with its people transformation programme.
"The multiple awards won by Maybank is testimony of the strength of the Maybank brand, including our ‘GO Ahead.’ employer value proposition in the market, particularly amongst graduates.
"Our win is recognition of the conscious efforts we have put into transforming our people practices to provide our talents with the right capabilities to excel both personally and professionally in a conducive, high performing work environment.”
“Securing first place in the overall category and in the Banking and Financial Services Category is recognition to us of the leading role we have played as a graduate recruiter in Malaysia.
"It shows that our increased focus year on year to attract the right graduate talent to Maybank is paying off," she said.
