Our responsibility towards Swiss Re employees
Swiss Re’s goal is to attract talented people from a broad range of disciplines and backgrounds by providing our employees with a working environment conducive to their personal and professional development. We nurture a culture of diversity and inclusion across the company, offer excellent training opportunities, and provide a range of health and other benefits. We take active steps to promote mentoring, gender balance, career planning and overall employee well-being.
One of the primary means of checking our progress in these areas is through the employee engagement survey, conducted every other year. In 2013, 74% of our employees took part. Results improved over the 2011 survey, and although no Group-wide actions were specified, there are many working groups or teams who analyse their division or department results to see where improvements can be made.
