This is the 11th consecutive year that Allianz Life has been included on the list, showing its commitment to the employee experience, professional development, and diversity, equity and inclusion. Allianz Life was recognized this year for its strong demonstration of the company’s culture of caring.
“Allianz Life is committed to being a national employer of choice, and making sure employees see limitless potential in their careers here,” said Jasmine Jirele, president and CEO of Allianz Life. “We work hard to continuously improve our employee experience, and receiving this award for more than a decade validates our strong workplace culture and our deep commitment to making Allianz a great place to work.”
Allianz continues to cultivate a workplace for all through diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives like employee resource groups and its supplier diversity program.
