As part of the systematic expansion of our personnel development measures, we also made the further training of our professionally seasoned staff a particular point of emphasis. In this respect, the most recent employee survey had highlighted specific requirements to which we responded with the newly designed seminars “Primary insurance know-how for reinsurers” and “Confident decision-making in complex situations”. These targeted learning incentives put our experts in an even stronger position as they strive to keep pace with changing (market) requirements and continue to act with assurance in the face of growing complexity. Not only that, by means of these offerings we foster the important inclination towards lifelong learning.
The effects of shifting demographics are making themselves felt in our company, just as they are in the wider world. For this reason another focus of our attention when it comes to updating our training programme is on aspects of health and performance capability as well as on supporting our staff in the later phase of their working life. To this end, we introduced a seminar to share knowledge about health impacts on business performance and raise awareness of resilience factors. Participants get to know their own personal resources that can sustain them in a healthy lifestyle and help them to preserve their long-lasting performance potential. Another newly launched seminar is aimed specially at members of staff who will be retiring in the next few years. Entitled “Purposefully shaping the transition to retirement”, it helps these employees to tackle their final years with the company proactively and prepare for retirement. On the one hand, then, this seminar leverages sources of potential for the company, while at the same time expressing the considerable esteem in which we hold such members of staff for their many years of dedication.
We have been heartened by the favourable response to all these measures and feel strengthened in our desire to continue along this path.
