Allianz, Finalist 2012, Best for Engagement Award

Allianz is an insurance company, employing over 4,000 people in the UK. They found that by investing in ways to engage with their staff, many employees remained with the company for a significant proportion of their careers.

By offering a range of flexible work opportunities and where possible accommodating their employees’ specialised needs, staff are not only engaged but remain loyal. This is coupled with an approach to training and development that ensures those who work flexibly are not sidelined. Staff engagement is primarily measured through retention and reflected in the results of their annual staff survey.
