To date, Maybank remains as the first and only financial services group to be awarded as the Graduate Employer of the Year in the history of Malaysia’s Top 100 Leading Graduate Employers survey.

Maybank was in the top ten of the M100 list since 2011, climbing the ranks from 17th in 2010, fifth in 2011 and third in 2012. Since 2013, it continued to be in the top two positions of the Top 100 Leading Employers in Malaysia. Maybank was also named as the Most Popular Employer (Banking and Financial Services) for the sixth consecutive year.

Nora said that the Bank’s enduring appeal amongst the young graduates is the testimony of its GoAhead. Employer Value Proposition (EVP) that is instrumental to Maybank’s success in attracting the right talent.

“Our EVP ensures our workplace continues to be progressive, inclusive and conducive to a high performing environment. What we are going to do in the future will be a lot more innovative.

“We want to uplift the quality overall and set the benchmark in our efforts to empower talents in the countries we operate in to contribute to the development of the nation and region. When you are a champion, it comes with a lot of responsibilities as well and you have to remain consistent as well as relevant to your stakeholders,” said Nora
