Maybank GO Ahead.

Since its inception in 2012, MGAC has impacted more than 1.2 million lives πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ Wowβ€ΌοΈπŸ˜²

This amazing panel session πŸ—£πŸ‘₯πŸ‘€πŸ‘₯ was attended by approximately 120 MGAC participants & university representatives πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬

What has the panel session πŸ—£πŸ‘₯πŸ‘€πŸ‘₯discussed❓⁉️

Mainly the topic of #ChallengeOfChoice: Nature Versus Nurture in the employment landscape & how the employers today utilise innovative approaches to attract next-generation talents πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ“πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ“πŸŽ“

MGAC is Maybank πŸ―πŸ¦β€™s multi-disciplinary talent recruitment competition which has impacted the lives of over 1.2 million students & graduates πŸŽ“ globally πŸ—ΊπŸŒ since its inception in 2012

Themed Challenge of Choice, MGAC 2019 is redefined through the gamification of the programme, providing talents πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ“πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ“πŸŽ“ with a holistic platform to showcase their abilities. It also aims to test the ability of all the challengers’ in making decisions in life πŸ€—

β€œWe’re always looking for innovative ways to test & shape the future-readiness of the participants πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«πŸ‘­ & #ChallengeOfChoice does that in a holistic manner. The new πŸ†• 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 βš–οΈ between nature & nurture – to attract these talents πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ“πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ“πŸŽ“

We’re not just trying to find the best talent πŸŽ“ with MGAC – we’re looking to shape the leaders πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’ΌπŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’Ό 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.” saidΒ Madam NoraΒ A Manaf πŸ§•πŸΌ, the Group Chief Human Capital Officer of Maybank 🐯🏦

MGAC is the 1️⃣st talent recruitment competition to combine multiple disciplines that accentuate character with competence. Also the very 1️⃣st to be gamified now. It is geared to test those who can think outside the box πŸ“¦ while skillfully navigating complexities within & at the same time providing a personalised experience for the participants πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬

β€œBack then when we looked at hiring a talentπŸŽ“, we chose their CVs πŸ“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 πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ“πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ“ who share the same beliefs & values as our brand is a more effective approach to building a solid foundation for a team πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«

It’s a lot easier to nurture a team πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« that shares the same passion for the success πŸ‘πŸ» of the brand. The approach that Maybank 🐯🏦has taken with MGAC 2019 gives the new πŸ†• 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,” said MrΒ Timothy Tiah πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’Ό, the founder of Colony

Guess what❓⁉️

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

MGAC 2019 with non-fictional scenario cases, will also implement gamified elements from application stage until the Global Finals. This year, participants πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« whose journeys are cut short, will also be given a 2️⃣nd chance at making their way back into the competition with the help of current participants πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬ ~ aligned with the gamification theme. Encouraging teamwork 🀝 & strategic liaising – MGAC 2019 will have all participants & non-participants πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« to play a role in the challenge. It aims to provide an experience that is current, enjoyable & unique for everyone involved 😊

β€œAt the end of the day, hiring based on the natural skills of a candidate πŸŽ“ or nurturing the candidate πŸŽ“ to strive better are both equally important & dependent on the progress of the talents’ career journey.Β  For corporations to grow, especially today with a new πŸ†• age workforce coming into the picture ~ they need to adapt & listen to what they want to attract the right people πŸ‘πŸ»

And that’s what makes Maybank 🐯🏦 different. Maybank 🐯🏦 has listened & identified what the future talents want & provided it through MGAC 2019. It gives the new πŸ†• pool of hires πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ“πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ“ a chance to prove themselves beyond just an impressive resume,” added Madam Anabelle Co-Martinent πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’Ό, the founder of La Juiceria
