As AIA Insurance consolidates its position in Sri Lanka’s digital landscape, the company has rolled out the Sixer Video platform to enable online interviews for agent recruitment, remotely. 

Candidates interested in joining AIA as agents can now take part in digital career opportunity presentations and submit video resumes online. This is a fast and easy way of onboarding new agents without having physical meetings. The new process enables AIA’s team to save candidates their time and effort spent travelling long distances to interview for a position as a Wealth Planner. 

AIA Chief Technology Officer Umeshi de Fonseka explained, “In these post-COVID times, most people are uneasy to have physical meetings. We wanted to find a way to ensure our agent recruitment process continues uninterrupted, so we can continue to hire the highest calibre of professionals. This is also a cost effective and convenient option for candidates as they don’t have to waste time and money travelling for their first interview anymore and can focus on their presentations from the comfort of their homes.” AIA Director Agency Distribution Chanaka Liyanage added, “It also means AIA can recruit new candidates much faster using these video resumes which give us great insights to the candidates. At the same time, we’re now able to process multiple candidates within minutes using these video resumes instead of conducting individual one-on-one interviews. We are always looking for the highest calibre of professionals to recruit as Wealth Planners and this platform has certainly made the process more efficient.”
