Shape the way you work - Joel G

“Smart Working allows me to be more in control of my life. As a commuter, I have the chance to combine remote working with office culture. I can fully reach my professional goals, manage other aspects of my personal life, and enjoy more time with my family.  

This kind of flexibility also opens up possibilities for me and my colleagues. We can meet physically, ensuring team bonding and co-creation, whenever we need high interaction and collective intelligence. But when we need more autonomous, dedicated time – from beginning to end – we can work at home. I’m present where and when it matters, so I feel happy and fulfilled.  

This is a prime example of how Smart Working can work for you. I had to take my son to do a Covid test. While I was waiting, I had a meeting with my Paris colleagues, via confcall. We were able to fully review a topic of discussion and arrive at a collective decision. I even followed this up with a Teams call; we enabled our cameras and shared a presentation. It was quite an experience. Location simply didn’t matter, we all shared the same focus. I think that reveals a lot about AXA. We’re guided by solid principles, we put our best effort in and trust each other.”
