Employment Perks in AKPK

Training and Development Opportunities

AKPK pays close attention to staff education and qualification. This pays specific reference to the first pillar of AKPK Corporate Culture—learning.

Hence, 87% of our workforce comprise Bachelors, Masters, and Diploma holders.

To underscore AKPK’s emphasis on learning, some staff also hold professional qualifications such as ACCA, CIMA, AIIA, CPA, ACFE, CIAFIN, RFP and CFP either through their own initiative or through the efforts of AKPK’s Staff Organisational & Development Section.

These educational requirements on employment across all departments and levels have helped AKPK in driving its aspirations to achieve its vision of creating a financially savvy society, both externally and internally.



Our Perks


Flexible working days: Introduced as “Flexible Mondays” in 2017, this initiative was successful in reducing emergency and medical leaves. The policy for flexible working hours was made permanent in 2019 after a gradual implementation over 3 years.


Dress-down days: “Dress-down Fridays” was introduced during the corporate culture campaign in 2017. With a gradual implementation over 3 years, staff are now allowed to dress down every Wednesday and Friday starting from 2020.


Work from home: This exercise was introduced during the 2019 LEPINation game for non-frontline staff. As the management was happy with the outcome, staff are now allowed to work from home based on job necessities.



The world we live in is increasingly complex, especially for the youths, and they will eventually need to take charge of their future and finances. Financial education in the tertiary stage is for those between the ages of 18 to 25 currently pursuing post-secondary education. Providing them with the appropriate financial know-how at this point will build up their competence in dealing with future financial decisions. This module focuses on cash flow management, the importance of savings and setting up a budget, internet banking and other appropriate topics for university and college students.

Entering Workforce

This stage comprises those between the ages of 20 to 30, i.e. mainly those who are just starting out in life. Financial education is essential to this age group as they learn to be independent in most matters especially financial management. In their minds, a car is a want rather than a need, and normally sits at the top of their list of things to acquire. Our Entering Workforce module focuses on understanding the fundamentals of borrowing and the importance of borrowing productively to encourage positive net worth. Financial education at this stage is also aimed at inculcating the habit of managing debts wisely. The module also introduces the fundamentals of investments and the importance of insurance for a better tomorrow.

Starting and Raising a Family

The module for the next life stage is for those who are starting and raising a family. People in this category are approaching that time in their life when they will normally experience important and meaningful life’s milestones: marriage, children and a new home. Designed for those between 30 to 40 years of age, this module will focus on settling unproductive loans while reducing debt commitments as they prepare for retirement. Emphasis will again be placed on the importance of planning for and protecting against uncertainties by talking about the types of financial tools available. They will learn the various types of insurance policies and be able to decide on the best coverage based on their affordability for their precious family. Education will also be given on the appropriate investments that will provide passive income for a better tomorrow.


The transition from working to retiring involves many tough decisions regarding income and lifestyle needs and whether one plans to ease into retirement or otherwise, while considering factors such as wealth management, whether a pension is enjoyed, and EPF balances. These are big decisions with long-term impact on their financial well-being during retirement. To make the best choices, they require sufficient knowledge and intense awareness of how they want to live through their retirement years. Therefore, our pre-retirement module will prepare them for retirement by teaching them the proper use of their investments and review of their portfolio while servicing their insurance policies and settling unproductive debts to improve their net worth positively.

Post – Retirement

You have retired. How would you manage your money now? Considering that the average life expectancy in Malaysia has improved, it is more important now than ever to ensure that you have the financial resources to live a comfortable and happy lifestyle—particularly if you are looking forward to retiring with peace of mind. Taking care of your wealth and making it last are important at this stage. Financial literacy and education is a continuous life lesson that does not end at retirement. Now, more than ever, you need to manage your finances wisely and plan for the unexpected. Our post-retirement module is focused on those who are currently transitioning into retirement or are in the early stages of retirement.
