At Allianz Group, our employees’ professional and personal development is very important to us. We want our managers and specialists to be as prepared as possible to handle the sophisticated challenges we face as a successful international company. We want to guide you on your career development path and help you grow with us.
Our talent management strategy
Our fast-paced development revealed the need for one clear strategy to promote the abilities and competencies of all Allianz Group employees around the world. This is why we developed our global talent management strategy.
The strategy contains all of our talent management activities. For example, the Allianz Group and individual companies hold regular conferences on professional advancement. This gives our employees access to international development opportunities. Our talent management strategy also helps us ensure that we have the right people in each position.
We also place a great deal of emphasis on discussing feedback and personal development opportunities with our employees. These meetings between employees and their respective managers are part of our mid-year and end-of-year reviews.
Our global talent management strategy gives our employees a number of advantages.
- Increased transparency regarding the expectations in current and future jobs.
- Open discussion on the topic of careers along with the corresponding feedback.
- The planning of qualification activities in line with specific skills needed within the company.
- New opportunities for development in working on international project teams and training to become a “change agent.”
We are fostering mobility culture for developing our talents. This means we encourage our employees to work in different Allianz entities across geographies, functions and levels. That way, they can improve their skills in different assignment situations depending on their skills and expertise.
For example, we expect the talents willing to become senior leaders to work in at least two different functions, two geographic locations, or to have working experience in different Allianz entities.
