How we develop our talent

We want to make Generali a magnet for attracting talent from across the globe, by continually investing in seeking and training that talent.

In France, to retain our talents, we launched career and professional development programmes, and we implemented a skills model for the purpose of assessing the professional level of staff and so define a development plan. In 2016 the Talent Programme identified and assessed 32 talents who received a personal development plan established by their managers and by human resources. The mentoring programme, seeking to help the professional development of talents, involved 32 managers who received special training to perform this role.

After a process for the development of professional and personal skills addressing 28 talents, 18 were assessed and included in the development path of the EMEA area which was held in Amsterdam, Vienna and Zurich.
We also organised a training programme involving 60 participants from EMEA countries to prepare our talents to the new challenges of change. The programme was divided into two parts lasting 3 days each. In the first part we developed participants’ personal skills while in the second part we dealt with the managerial system and leadership skills. Our recruiting activities were awarded with a silver medal at the Career’s Best Recruiters while the City of Vienna ranked us as Top Lehrbetrieb (Top Apprenticeship Company) for the results and success of our apprenticeship programme for young people who wish to embark on a business career.
