People-related data

Here you can find additional people-related data which complements the information in our Sustainability Report. The graphs show the figures of Swiss Re at year-end 2020 excluding ReAssure employees.

Our Group EC has committed to increasing the representation of underrepresented groups in the organisation. Our current focus is on improving gender diversity at senior levels, as well as increasing racial and ethnic diversity in our leadership teams and the employee population.

Our vision for the future of learning at Swiss Re includes an increased focus on an outstanding learning experience that is digital, social, accessible and commercial. We believe that learning should enable employees to deliver their best performance towards fulfilling Swiss Re’s strategy.


* In 2018, we began changing Swiss Re’s learning landscape with LearningOne and adopted a new learning philosophy, which gives our employees access to bite-sized learning nuggets at their convenience. We no longer track these learning hours as of 2018.

** In 2020, many classroom training sessions were cancelled due to COVID-19, and fewer training sessions were conducted, which resulted in a drop in learning costs per employee.

The age split of our employee base has naturally changed. We lead and manage a diverse generation mix.

We are an organisation where diverse talents come together globally to apply fresh perspectives and knowledge to make the world more resilient. The fastest growing locations are our Business Solutions Centres in Bratislava, Slovakia and Bangalore, India, which provide us with access to new talent pools.
