Capital A Bhd has rehired former employees that were retrenched back in 2020 back through its online grocer platform subsidiary airasia grocer.
“Two-thirds of airasia grocer staff are from the airline and previously held various positions relevant to the airline space,” commented Joanna Ibrahim, CEO of airasia grocer in a recent interview with Bernama.
“We prioritise hiring our former employees to join our team, as we believe that anything is possible with AirAsia’s multi-talented crew members that have a unique culture and are brave to take on new challenges,” she told Bernama in an exclusive interview recently.
Established in 2020 to address fresh produce wastage, airasia grocer is the delivery arm to the airasia super app, previously airasia farm, offers grocery delivery services to consumers by matching them to local farmers and merchants.
Former employees who held a position in the Group's aviation branch are now given the chance to put their skills to work under the new appointment, with many expressing their gratitude to the company for remembering them during challenging times.
Capital A, formerly AirAsia Group Bhd, recently underwent an official name change at the end of January in favour of the Group's new business strategy to be known as an investment holding company. The Group currently is engaged in ventures involving aviation, logistics, lifestyle, and financial services.
