Modern work models

Flexible work models are very important at AXA: for men and women as well as for young and experienced people. Modern and flexible work models are essential, not least due to demographic, social and technological change. We develop products for a diverse clientèle, so it is even more important for us to reflect this diversity within AXA too. Different work models are the basis for looking at products and problems from different perspectives. Because we want you to be motivated afresh every day, give your best and stay with us for a long time.

Flexwork – flexible work models

With Flexwork, we combine work models that offer flexibility in terms of time and/or location. Taking account of operational requirements and wherever possible, we give our employees flexibility at work. This requires dialogue and openness on both sides and means that new models are always being created. We believe that our employees reciprocate the flexibility we give them through their performance. An advantage for employees and AXA.

Modern work methods

As an insurance company, we are in a rapidly changing environment. To enable us to react quickly to the associated changes and still be able to cater more rapidly and effectively to our clients’ requirements, modern work methods are essential.

Agile working 

We see agility as not just a work method, but also a way of thinking and leading. This agile mindset means being able to adapt quickly and flexibly to new circumstances and situations. This requires a healthy culture of trust where hierarchical thinking is less important and networks are more important. As well as classic teams, we also have agile teams at AXA which, depending on the range of tasks, work using the Scrum or Kanban method. We also use customer-centric agile methods such as design thinking. The agile mindset is already firmly embedded with us. It is relevant for nearly all employees in their daily work.
