KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 20): CIMB Group Holdings Bhd today introduced fresh policies for staff with special needs children by providing financial assistance and flexible work arrangements to help them focus on their children and career.
The policies will allow eligible employees to work from home one day per week, and receive financial aid of up to RM1,000 per child monthly.
These latest enhancements are part of ‘Workplace [email protected]’, a comprehensive work-life initiative to assist employees in both their professional and personal aspirations.
Group chief people officer of CIMB Group, Datuk Hamidah Naziadin, said, “People are our most valued asset in CIMB and they have always been a strategic driver for CIMB’s business growth. With 36,000 staff across 16 countries from different cultures and backgrounds, we believe in providing an environment to enable each employee to contribute effectively towards CIMB’s business goals.
“To that end, our Workplace [email protected] programme is continually enhanced to ensure that each employee — regardless of his or her unique needs and personal circumstances — stands in good stead to develop their career in CIMB,” she said.
Hamidah added that this will, in turn, contribute to employee well-being and work-life fulfillment, which translates into a more positive and productive workforce.
