Allianz Malaysia Berhad celebrated Children’s Day for its employees’ children at the Head Office on 15 November 2019. 

The Company transformed one of its training rooms to a colourful playroom especially, complete with reading space, games corner featuring mini-football and mini-golf as well as a sticker tattoo and face painting stations.

Allianz Malaysia Chief Executive Officer Zakri Khir and Allianz Life Insurance Malaysia Berhad Chief Executive Officer Joseph Gross took time off to spend the day with the children and their parents. 

Zakri read Do Not Wash This Bear by Sam Hay and Fox and The Jumping Contest by Corey R. Tabor to the children while Star Wars fan Joseph brought along his remote-controlled R2D2 for a spin, revealing a lighter side of themselves.

“Today was all about making Children’s Day extra special for our employees and their children. It has been a while since I have read a storybook to a child, so it was quite nice to revisit the experience after all these years,” said Zakri. 
 
Besides Zakri and Joseph, Allianz Malaysia Group Head of Human Resources Wong Woon Man and Group Head of Corporate Communications Shamala Gopalan were also part of the event, taking part in games such as Guess This Animal and Let’s Build a Tree with the children. The children were also entertained by a child entertainer who made balloon animals and put on an entertaining magic show. 
 
“The activities brought out some of that childlike enthusiasm and left us all in fits of laughter. Life is about sharing special moments. And events like these that serve as a great reminder to all of us to appreciate the simpler things in life,” added Zakri.
