At AXA, the emphasis is on trust, flexibility, and teamwork – values that are reflected in our Smart Working work model. Smart Working reflects an increased desire to work from home as well as rapidly changing work habits. For AXA, therefore, Smart Working is all about the contribution you make to the company's objectives – rather than the place where you actually make your contribution.
You and your team decide jointly when and where you work in order to achieve these corporate objectives to optimum effect. Your place of work is determined on the basis of where you are at your most productive, how you and your team can work best together, and what your personal preferences are.
Smart Working is a win-win situation for you, for AXA, and for our customers:
AXA allows you to work from home if your role permits you to do so. This is possible in many cases – all it takes is a laptop and an internet connection. As far as we are concerned, the question of where you work is less important than the contribution you make to enable you, your team, and AXA to perform well. As you no longer need to commute, you have more time for yourself, your family, and your work. In addition, AXA offers various Flexwork models.
As well as working smart, we also offer you flexible work models such as part-time work to suit a wide variety of needs – depending on which phase of life you are in. Flexible work models have long been a high priority at AXA: for men and women as well as for young and experienced members of staff. We use the term Flexwork to describe work models that offer flexibility in terms of time.
Would you like to spend more time on your hobbies or with your grandchildren before you retire? After age 58, you can reduce your workload by up to 20 % while maintaining your insured salary in the pension fund.

As an insurance company, we are in a rapidly changing environment. Modern work methods are essential to enable us to react quickly to the associated changes and still be able to cater more rapidly and effectively to our customers' requirements.
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. Depending on the range of tasks involved, these teams 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.
Personal experience is combined with projects: At AXA, that's a perfect Flexwork match. Matchworkers are full-time AXA employees who work on strategic projects for a fixed period.
