Allianz is a unique place filled with outstanding and diverse people. This is important, because Allianz is a people business. The satisfaction of our customers is directly linked to our people, their performance and engagement. However, employee engagement is becoming an increasing challenge for companies worldwide. We at Allianz believe that Inclusive Meritocracy is the right measure to meet this challenge. By reinforcing a culture where both people and performance matter, we aim to attract, empower and engage top talents from diverse backgrounds who are collaborative, entrepreneurial, trustworthy and, above all, customer centric.
Fostering employee engagement also means to care for the health and safety of our people. To avoid potential health issues caused by work-related stress we launched the Work Well program which contributes to employee well-being by creating a productive and health-promoting workplace. In the next few years, we will implement minimum actions in our 50 largest companies to address stressors. Our Work Well Index, a new scientific instrument to measure work-related psychosocial stress, will help us track improvements and, not least, is directly correlated to a business case creating significant value for Allianz and its stakeholders.
I am pleased to present the Allianz HR Fact Book 2015 which provides you with a variety of facts and figures on our workforce and gives you an insight into our global HR activities.
I hope you enjoy reading it.
