UNIQA knows that a high level of diversity in the team makes it more successful. Successful organisations tap into the diversity of various nationalities and cultures and the differing strengths of men and women.
At UNIQA, the share of women in Management Board positions and in senior executive roles across the Group is 17 per cent, and 25 per cent in the international area. These figures are too low. For this reason, UNIQA gives priority to hiring women in its recruitment process for candidates with the same qualifications. In addition, the ability to combine a career with family life is a key issue when it comes to promoting the careers of women in the company. With this in mind, UNIQA goes to great lengths to provide flexible working hours, part-time models and the option of teleworking. Starting in 2013, UNIQA will also be cooperating with an external service provider that offers services such as childcare, care for relatives and other family services. Both men and women should have the same opportunities to combine a career with family life.
