What are your thoughts on CIMB being recognised with many accolades, especially the People Leader and Employer of the Year? We take pride in honing best people practices and I am delighted that our efforts were recognised at the Jobstreet by SEEK People & Purpose Awards where CIMB bagged the most awards including People Leader of the Year and Employer of the Year.

This is a testament to the team’s hard work in making CIMB the best place for the best talents to thrive – after all, our employees are the key lever to our organisational success.

Our commitment towards employees’ needs has resulted in cultivating a work environment where our employees are able to thrive in their professional development, personal growth and wellness.

What are some of the initiatives in CIMB that are best in class? At CIMB, our initiatives are focused on supporting and empowering career growth and personal development, creating an inclusive and positive culture and work environment, and recognising and rewarding our people.

Our regional footprint across Asean offers employees opportunities to explore diverse roles as part of their career progression.

CIMB has been widely recognised as a top employer of choice, having won over 30 HR-related awards regionally.

Employee wellness is paramount in fostering a safe and inclusive workplace for our people. Under CIMB wellness, we provide comprehensive support encompassing physical health, financial well-being, family support and mental health.

We are also highly supportive of work flexibility, with CIMB’s current hybrid work arrangement being a key differentiator for us.

What is your vision for CIMB from a human capital and people perspective? Across the years, we have seen intensified efforts to cultivate an enabling environment of trust and career fulfilment, and embedding the right set of values, thereby allowing people to thrive.

Our people will always be our top priority and the main catalysts of the group’s overall business growth.
