Zimnat, a leading financial services group has once again painted the city green with the return of its glitzy Annual Agents Awards ceremony. The latest edition was held at the prestigious Cresta Lodge in Harare on Friday the 18th of March 2022. The glamorous event is hosted annually to recognize and celebrate high-performing sales agents in the group, in line with the Zimnat culture of celebrating success and high performers. The event was attended by sales agents from all over Zimbabwe as well as executives from the group and some of its banking partners.
In his welcome remarks, Mustafa Sachak, Zimnat group chief executive officer said it is the company’s culture to always recognize hard work and celebrate it. The annual agents’ awards ceremony is the pinnacle of this recognition program.
“Whilst the COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted us from an economic and social perspective, it also helped expedite our digitalization agenda to continue delivering on our promise to our customers. This resolve to make life better extends to how our agent salesforce evolved in a way that has seen us bouncing back with better results in the 2021 financial year. Today we honour those agents that were exceptional within our high-performing salesforce. One of our biggest drivers is exceptional customer service and these people getting awards today have displayed a commitment to both hard work and exceptional service delivery.
“By celebrating and encouraging our sales agents and staff we want them to be motivated to provide exceptional service to our clients. We want to empower the company and clients to reach their full potential,” Mr Sachak said.
The awards ceremony which was dominated by female agents could not have come at a better time than in the month in which the world is celebrating women. A woman of note was Sheron Mange a life insurance sales agent who was recognized as the top-performing sales agent. She broke the bias by growing her portfolio by ten times from its 2020 record.
Not to be outdone were sales agents in the general insurance and microfinance space, Gardiner Maponga and Godfrey Huseni. Gardiner Maponga has been with the group selling insurance for more than 2 decades and is growing his portfolio consistently same with Godfrey.
