Responsibility to employees
The Group’s human resources management policy is based on the common values and strategy of the Triglav Group. The aim is to provide for highly professional, skilled, responsible, committed and satisfied employees, who are engaged in pursuing the strategic objectives and achieving the set business objectives. The employees are encouraged to develop their potential by constantly upgrading their knowledge and achieving both professional and personal goals.
As at the year-end, the total number of employees in the Triglav Group was 5,046 or 333 less than the year before. The number of employees decreased mainly due to sale of the Avrigo Group and the Triglav subsidiary Slovenijales trgovina d.o.o.
Committed and highly skilled employees are one of the most important factors for successful business operations of the company, therefore constant training, personal growth and development are enabled to the employees. Internal training accounted for the bulk of all training courses held. The most common topics were related to the insurance sector, business communication and sales skills. Employees participated in computer and foreign language courses as well as in workshops for promotion of a healthy lifestyle and personal growth. E-learning has been on the rise primarily due to greater flexibility of learning in terms of time and space.
Moreover, employees are able to attend external training courses in Slovenia and abroad. If there were more candidates interested in a specific topic, the seminar was organised in-house.
The intergenerational transfer of know-how and experience to young generations was ensured in various ways. Scholarships continued to be provided to 12 high school and university students, while mandatory work practice/internship was offered to 31 high school students. In cooperation with universities and schools, the insurance business was presented to young people, in addition to raising the awareness about the importance of insurance, which also improved their financial literacy.
Traineeship was completed by 11 employees. Full or partial funding of study was provided to 155 employees.
