Who We Are
GREAT IS EMPOWERING INDIVIDUALS
Empowering its employees to LIVE GREAT and reach for their potential is one of the many reasons why Great Eastern Life Assurance (M) Berhad (Great Eastern Life) is the employer of choice for insurance.
Established in 1908, Great Eastern Life is the largest life insurer in the country with more than a century of experience and rich heritage in protecting generations of Malaysians. A wholly-owned subsidiary of Great Eastern Holdings Limited, Great Eastern Life is backed by a solid financial foundation of RM79.6 billion in assets, over 3 million policies in force served by 21 operational branch offices and a network of 19,000 agents nationwide.
As a member of the OCBC Group, Great Eastern Life works closely with its parent company in bancassurance partnerships, and apart from life insurance, is also able to deliver options in general and Takaful insurance under one roof through Great Eastern General Insurance (Malaysia) Berhad (GEGM) and Great Eastern Takaful Berhad (GETB). Its pooled resources afford the Company with more options and versatility in terms of the way business is done, as well as in its hiring practices; whilst also allowing inter-company career mobility opportunities across the Group regionally for its employees.
EMPOWERMENT THROUGH GROWTH
Engaging with and nurturing the growth potential of employees is of great importance to Great Eastern Life’s talent agenda. From the day a new employee comes on board, they are offered comprehensive training to orientate them into their roles and new working environment, as well as providing them with continued professional development throughout their career with the company, so that their career may flourish as they progress within the organisation.
In its pursuit of grooming in-house talent for internal promotion, Great Eastern Life supports education at the workplace through its Educational Assistance Programme that allows for professional memberships, study leave, examination subsidies, and special salary increments upon successful completion of courses.
EMPOWERMENT THROUGH LIFESTYLE
Apart from encouraging policyholders, friends and family to LIVE GREAT towards a healthier, better and longer life, Great Eastern Life also empowers its employees to take charge of their health and wellness.
Employees are encouraged to celebrate a great life through empowerment for them to take charge of their health and wellness, leading to a healthier, better and longer life. To that end, the company established programmes such as the Life Programme and Making Life Great (MLG) activities – subsidized gym memberships, weekly fun workout sessions (yoga, Zumba, body combat, dodgeball tournaments), health talks by medical experts, free annual health check-ups, reward by LIFE Points (that can be redeemed against products and services from Life Programme health, fitness, wellness, and lifestyle merchants).
