2016 Corporate Responsibility Report

Bridging generations

To ensure Swiss Re attracts and retains the talent needed for the future and remains an employer of choice, it is important we understand the diverse needs of the multiple generations making up our workforce. Swiss Re’s generational diversity is expected to increase across all our locations, and our new employer brand reflects our aspirations to embrace a balanced workforce.

In particular, we are focusing on building dialogue across different age groups to break the stereotypes attached to generational preferences and workstyles. In 2016, we held workshops across the Asia-Pacific, Americas and EMEA regions. Combining internal dialogue with external trends, we are working on creating workplace solutions that take into account employee life cycles (eg parents, retirement, career starters) and the increasing demand for flexible work solutions.
