We at Allianz believe that it is important to have a diverse and inclusive workforce. Employing people from different backgrounds and making them feel included is, in our view, a major driving force behind the success of our global company.
Allianz carries out measures to promote inclusion and has a zero-tolerance policy towards discrimination and harassment. This is measured annually in our employee engagement survey.
Allianz SE’s Global Diversity Council ensures the implementation of a diversity strategy in all Allianz entities to meet Allianz’s commitment to inclusion. The council is chaired by Niran Peiris, Allianz SE board member and also the sponsor of issues relating to Diversity and Inclusion. The council has been in place since 2007.
The Global diversity Council monitors Diversity and Inclusion plans and how these are implemented by various Allianz companies. The Group Head of Diversity helps to coordinate the various programs and sees to it that they are in line with Allianz goals.
