Generali among nominees for Efma-Accenture Innovation in Insurance Awards

Voting open until May 17th to support competing projects

This year again, a number of Generali innovation projects developed across the Group’s business units are competing as nominees for the EFMA-Accenture Innovation in Insurance Awards, the competition that showcases the most outstanding innovations in the industry.

Generali’s commitment to innovation is represented by the following initiatives:

  • Customer Experience 2022 category - Generali Smart Automation Platform, the first platform created at Group level in collaboration with Generali Italia to provide automation and artificial intelligence services to Generali countries worldwide.
  • Workforce Transformation 2022 category - MAP2TheNew: a new managerial training journey. It is a training programme dedicated to more than 8,000 Group managers aiming to develop new managerial skills to address the needs and changes emerging from hybrid work settings.
  • Global Innovator category - Assicurazioni Generali 2022

Voting to support competing nominees is open until May 17th. The list is available on the Innovation in Insurance Portal; there, it is possible to choose the top 3 of the innovations presented in each category, and award them Bronze, Silver, and Gold. In order to vote, an Efma account is needed – it can be created directly on the portal. The only category in which it will not be possible to vote is Global Innovator, as the winner will be decided by the Efma jury.

In 2020, Generali was honoured with two out of the total of seven awards given while in 2021 it was awarded 4 gold and 1 silver titles, winning in five out of the seven categories included in the competition.

A catalyst for innovation in the insurance sector that celebrates the best new ideas in the industry, the Awards are a valuable opportunity for the Group to keep positioning itself at the frontier of innovation and to effectively meet the needs of its customers in line with the new three-year strategic plan “Lifetime Partner 24: Driving Growth”, which includes a total of € 1.1 billion investments in digital and technology during the plan horizon, a 60% increase on the last strategic cycle.
