There’s one thing that makes more of a difference to our organisation than anything else: our people. It’s their ideas, commitment and knowledge that help us create the products and provide the service that our customers really want. We’re delighted we’ve been listed two years running the Best Big Companies to Work For survey, organised by The Sunday Times. It’s based on responses from our own people and we see it as a demonstration of the supportive environment we’ve built here. Change is always in the air at AXA. We need to respond to the world around us and adapt to new circumstances. It’s part of our way of life. At the same time, there are many basic values that stay constant. We believe in treating our customers fairly and offering them a wide range of innovative products and services. We also like to see our own people achieve their aspirations and get the proper reward for what they do. Ours is a culture that rewards excellence and we always insist on the highest standards of performance. We’re also committed to supporting the communities we work in. Through programmes such as Hearts in Action, we make sure that we’re actively involved with local causes and helping to enhance people’s lives.
When you value someone, you need to motivate and reward them. That’s why AXA has developed a benefits package that really recognises the contribution made by employees. Here’s a breakdown of what we offer:Competitive salaryWe regularly benchmark to make sure we stay competitive. Your starting salary will reflect your skills and experience. Increases will be based on your pay range and annual performance review.BonusYour bonus is a reflection of how well we’re doing as a company and how well you’re doing as an individual. In senior roles, it can add up to as much as 30% of salary.PensionsIn a world where a good pension is more important than ever, our money-purchase scheme represents great value. Your core contribution can be varied according to age and when you pay more, you get an extra contribution from us. After five years’ service, we increase what we pay again in recognition of your loyalty. Hours of work35 or 37.5 hours a week is pretty typical, although we try to be flexible wherever possible to allow you to balance work with other things that matter. If it fits with the needs of the business, it’s also possible to work extra hours and take time off in lieu. HolidaysWe believe people who work hard deserve lots of time off to relax and recharge their batteries. You can expect a minimum of 23 days' annual leave, rising to 28 after five years’ service. There’s also a scheme that allows you to buy or sell your holiday. Career breaks and sabbaticals are possible under certain circumstances.
