A career gap shouldn’t be a barrier to realising your professional goals and aspirations
Allianz Insurance knows the value career returners bring to a business. They recognise that different ways of thinking are critical to solve the challenges they may face as a business and that companies with diverse teams outperform those without them. Employing people from different backgrounds and making them feel included is a major driving force behind the existing success of this global company. In 2017 Allianz became the first UK insurer to create a specific route to success for those who’ve taken extended career breaks, and now they have a growing internal Returner Alumni group.
