2017 Corporate Responsibility Report

Owning the way we work

As a company that operates globally and around the clock, Swiss Re can strengthen its competitive advantage by embracing the new opportunities of an increasingly connected world.

We acknowledge that one size does not fit all and we support non-traditional work models and embrace flexibility. Our trademarked programme, Own the Way You Work, is a cultural change initiative which gives managers and employees autonomy to decide how, when and where work is carried out in compliance with the applicable laws, rules and regulations of their particular region. Own the Way You Work is about creating a team environment where trust, responsibility, empowerment and autonomy are valued and where business results count more than “face time” in the office. This has become a differentiating part of Swiss Re’s employee value proposition and was internationally recognised by Glassdoor when we ranked in their 2017 Top 20 Global Companies for Employee Benefits & Perks.
