The German arm of Aioi Nissay Dowa Europe (AND-E), the European subsidiary of the Japanese insurance giant MS&AD Insurance Group Holdings Inc, has today announced that it has been certified as a ‘Leading Employer’, putting it in the top 1% of companies in Germany.
Every year, Leading Employers, the world’s most comprehensive study of employer qualities, analyses more than 200 global information sources, across 160,000 businesses. Its transparent evaluation system, along with ratification from a board of expert panellists, identifies those companies that meet the criteria to be in the top 1% of all employers. Employee satisfaction, health management, career opportunities and company values are all measured as part of the criteria.
Commenting on achieving the certification as a Leading Employer for the German arm of AND-E, Diana Straßer, Head of HR for AND-E Germany said:
“We are particularly proud of being named as a ‘Leading Employer’ because it underlines the commitment we make, as a company, to the wellbeing of our employees. The last few years have been extremely challenging for most companies, and we are delighted that our effort to support our more than 170 colleagues across our two offices in Germany has been recognised.
“As we focus on business growth, with the recruitment of new talent a fundamental component in our success, it is crucial that we continue to build on our company culture as a supportive and caring employer. Achieving the ‘Leading Employer’ certification will give employees, new and existing, the confidence that we put their interests at the heart of our organisation.”
Martin Spangenberg, Branch Manager AND-E Germany added:
“The best way for any company to achieve top results is to give its staff respect and to provide a creative, supportive workplace. We will continue to operate with this philosophy in the years to come.”
