We're aiming to be 'Best'

11th June

As a company that places great importance on its employees, we took part in the 'Best Companies Employee Engagement Survey' for the first time in 2013.

The response rate was excellent, with almost 90% of our people participating. The results were very positive and we achieved a “very good” rating, only just missing out on a place in the Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work For 2014 List.

So what makes Covéa Insurance a great place to work? Here are some quotes from our employees:

“Teams work together openly and collaboratively, building effective relationships across the business.”

“The business supports a wide range of personal development activities”

“There are so many opportunities available to develop and progress. ”

“The people who work for the company are what make it a great place to work.”

James Reader, Covéa Insurance CEO, is an enthusiastic supporter of employee engagement and commented:

“We are justifiably proud of the results from our first Best Companies survey, which demonstrate the progress that we have made in making Covéa Insurance a great place to work. We know that there is more we can do though and the feedback from the survey has been used in the development of a clear action plan of improvements. We look forward to participating in the survey again this year with the aim of becoming a Sunday Times Best Company to Work For.”
