For us training, professional updating and the exchange of knowledge are the cornerstones of change and development.
Generali Group Academy, our new group Corporate University, is the focal point of the strategic and organisational transformation that Generali is undergoing to be able to compete at international level. It is a school of excellence, specifically created to develop managerial skills, share experiences and spread the company culture.
It is founded on group values, immersed in the internationalisation of today’s markets, and seeks to support Generali in managing transformation processes, constructing and strengthening new leaderships, supporting managerial and middle management career paths through skills development, in addition to helping to attract, develop and retain talent.
This year, to achieve these goals, we raised our level of investment in training to 79.5 million euro, increasing the number of hours of training per employee, in particular for women. More than 135,000 group employees and members of the sales force not on the payroll, or 77.6% of the workforce, attended at least one training programme during the year.
This demonstrates the group’s ongoing commitment to training for all its people, enabling them to take advantage of numerous training programmes to develop their technical, managerial and linguistic skills, among others.
