Since its inception in 2012, MGAC has impacted more than 1.2 million lives ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ Wowโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

This amazing panel session ๐Ÿ—ฃ๐Ÿ‘ฅ๐Ÿ‘ค๐Ÿ‘ฅ was attended by approximately 120 MGAC participants & university representatives ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ

What has the panel session ๐Ÿ—ฃ๐Ÿ‘ฅ๐Ÿ‘ค๐Ÿ‘ฅdiscussedโ“โ‰๏ธ

Mainly the topic of #ChallengeOfChoice: Nature Versus Nurture in the employment landscape & how the employers today utilise innovative approaches to attract next-generation talents ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐ŸŽ“

MGAC is Maybank ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฆโ€™s multi-disciplinary talent recruitment competition which has impacted the lives of over 1.2 million students & graduates ๐ŸŽ“ globally ๐Ÿ—บ๐ŸŒ since its inception in 2012

Themed Challenge of Choice, MGAC 2019 is redefined through the gamification of the programme, providing talents ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐ŸŽ“ with a holistic platform to showcase their abilities. It also aims to test the ability of all the challengersโ€™ in making decisions in life ๐Ÿค—

โ€œWeโ€™re always looking for innovative ways to test & shape the future-readiness of the participants ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ & #ChallengeOfChoice does that in a holistic manner. The new ๐Ÿ†• generation of hires are truly an exemplary group who have made such an impact in the workforce as companies across industries are adapting their ways – in balancing โš–๏ธ between nature & nurture – to attract these talents ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐ŸŽ“

Weโ€™re not just trying to find the best talent ๐ŸŽ“ with MGAC – weโ€™re looking to shape the leaders ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ of tomorrow. We believe that the true hallmark of a leader is about making the right choices in our everyday lives & how we can make sense of them to continue leading a life with purpose & meaning.โ€ย saidย Madam Noraย A Manaf ๐Ÿง•๐Ÿผ, the Group Chief Human Capital Officer of Maybank ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฆ

MGAC is the 1๏ธโƒฃst talent recruitment competition to combine multiple disciplines that accentuate character with competence. Also the very 1๏ธโƒฃst to be gamified now. It is geared to test those who can think outside the box ๐Ÿ“ฆ while skillfully navigating complexities within & at the same time providing a personalised experience for the participants ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ

โ€œBack then when we looked at hiring a talent๐ŸŽ“, we chose their CVs ๐Ÿ“œ with a focus on scaling the company, the fastest way possible. But looking back & learning from the experience, I understand now that choosing candidates ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“ who share the same beliefs & values as our brand is a more effective approach to building a solid foundation for a team ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ

Itโ€™s a lot easier to nurture a team ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ that shares the same passion for the success ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป of the brand. The approach that Maybank ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฆhas taken with MGAC 2019 gives the new ๐Ÿ†• age workforce a platform to shine in different aspects & showcasing an all-rounded skill set that would make them a very valuable addition to any team they join,โ€ said Mrย Timothy Tiah ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ, the founder of Colony

Guess whatโ“โ‰๏ธ

MGAC 2019 has been redefined, it goes beyond its limits with a progressive approach through gamification & personalisation. Yes โœ…, redefined what student competitions are all about. Allย participants ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ are given free ๐Ÿ†“ reign to sculpt their own experience in this competition with the hashtag #ChallengeOfChoice i.e.ย from choosing their teammates to the challenges they uptake, yes โœ…, adding greater texture & depth to the competition as each decision they make will lead to different consequences & experiences ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

MGAC 2019 with non-fictional scenario cases, will also implement gamified elements from application stage until the Global Finals. This year, participants ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ whose journeys are cut short, will also be given a 2๏ธโƒฃnd chance at making their way back into the competition with the help of current participants ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ ~ aligned with the gamification theme. Encouraging teamwork ๐Ÿค & strategic liaising โ€“ MGAC 2019 will have all participants & non-participants ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ to play a role in the challenge. It aims to provide an experience that is current, enjoyable & unique for everyone involved ๐Ÿ˜Š

โ€œAt the end of the day, hiring based on the natural skills of a candidate ๐ŸŽ“ or nurturing the candidate ๐ŸŽ“ to strive better are both equally important & dependent on the progress of the talentsโ€™ career journey.ย  For corporations to grow, especially today with a new ๐Ÿ†• age workforce coming into the picture ~ they need to adapt & listen to what they want to attract the right people ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

And thatโ€™s what makes Maybank ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฆ different. Maybank ๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿฆ has listened & identified what the future talents want & provided it through MGAC 2019. It gives the new ๐Ÿ†• pool of hires ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“ a chance to prove themselves beyond just an impressive resume,โ€ added Madam Anabelle Co-Martinent ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ, the founder of La Juiceria

MGAC 2019 has seen an astounding 300% increase โฌ†๏ธ in participation from 2018, clearly reflecting the popularity of the competition & its new ๐Ÿ†• approach amongst the new generation of hires. This year, we have received over 35K applications this year with more than 105 nationalities. Bravoโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
