We believe that talent is a valuable resource, extremely precious if it is young, but also unpredictably mobile because it goes where it wants. As such, we want to make Generali an appealing hub for talent from across the globe and we invest continuously to identify it: we organise and participate in work guidance days for young graduates (career days, job fairs, company presentations, themed workshops on HR-related topics for students); we finance study grants for deserving students; we support students writing their dissertations and offer placement opportunities to outstanding graduates.
These initiatives are facilitated by partnerships with leading universities, Italian businesses and international schools.
Leave Your Mark
Leave Your Mark is an innovative project which aims to identify a task force for contributing to the definition of the new Generali strategy, which will be unveiled in May 2015. It is composed of 50 Group talent selected from various business units and geographical areas, and representing 20 nations: a multicultural team that periodically collaborates with the Group CEO and the Group Strategy Team to lay the foundations for the next strategic cycle.
In the second half of 2015 the members of the task force will take part in a personalised training programme managed by a business school aimed at improving management skills and expertise.
Top Training Talent
In the Czech Republic, the Top Training Talent 2014 programme was organised for employees that had worked for the Group for over a year.
After the selection of the candidates, 14 participants from 9 European countries were able to take part in the programme.
The goal of the programme is to develop the personal and professional skills and technical expertise of the future leaders of our sector, and to generate active networks within the Group.
The 6 modules that made up the programme, organised in Prague, Budapest, Cologne and Milan, examined the main themes of the insurance business: finance, risk management, leadership, sales and marketing, crisis management, and life and P&C insurance.
The lessons are mainly taken by senior executives and the leading insurance experts in our Group.
