Digi hosts special day to drive learning culture

Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) hosted its annual Digital Day recently to strengthen their culture of learning and encourage employees to deepen their knowledge on the latest technology and digital trends.

In its fifth year, the company-wide event was fully virtual this year amidst the pandemic.

Digital Day is celebrated in addition to the company’s ongoing learning initiative, where Digizens – or Digi employees – are challenged to complete at least 40 hours of education via online learning platforms such as LinkedIn Learning, Coursera and Udacity every year.

“Continuous learning and upskilling will help us understand our customers better, and that includes expanding our knowledge on current and future digital technologies that are influencing customers’ behaviours,” said Elisabeth Stene, CHRO at Digi.

“This is imperative as we stay engaged with our customers and serve their needs, today and tomorrow, while remain competitive in the market.”

Themed ‘Discover What Matters Most’, this year’s event was aimed at inspiring Digizens to leverage the learnings from some of the best digital practices that were shared during the day and apply them in their own engagement with customers.

This is in line with Digi’s work culture where it prioritised employees’ self-improvement through continuous learning and encouraged everyday innovations that will help improve the lives of its customers.

The presentations and masterclasses gave employees the opportunity to learn how companies pivot and disrupt to respond to fast-changing customers’ needs, driven by accelerating digital innovation.
