Community connections

We empower employees to engage with causes they care about. We help connect employees with ongoing volunteer activities and give every employee a paid day off to volunteer for the organization of their choice. After 10 years, employees can take a fully paid, one-month sabbatical to volunteer full time with the nonprofit of their choice.

Learning and development

We want employees to be engaged and working on innovative projects that excite them. We offer a wide variety of local and global learning and development programs so employees can continuously learn, grow, and evolve in their careers. We also have a broad digital platform to help employees to personalize their learning experience, follow internal and industry experts, and learn from anywhere.

Employee recognition

We give credit where credit is due. We celebrate excellence every day through our peer-to-peer recognition platform and our Supporting Ongoing Achievement Recognition (SOAR) program, which honors individual contributors and teams on a monthly and annual basis. And prioritizing the recognition of great work doesn’t stop there. It’s an everyday occurrence to celebrate and encourage high-quality work and excellence.

Valuing diversity

We at Allianz believe in a diverse and inclusive workforce and are proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We encourage our employees to bring their whole self to work, no matter where they are from, what they look like, who they love, or what they believe in. We therefore welcome applications regardless of ethnicity or cultural background, age, gender, nationality, religion, disability, or sexual orientation.

“The inception and growth of Allianz BEYOND really shows that employees have a voice at Allianz Life, and that we all play a role in creating a culture of inclusion.”

- AJ Lewis-McGhee, corporate services associate, employee since 2015

“After graduating, I went back and forth about closing my retirement account until my loan was paid off versus keeping my retirement account open and paying less on my student loan. This called for some strategic budgeting and the occasional shaking of the piggy bank. The Student Loan Retirement Program offered here at Allianz was a breath of fresh air.”

- Lauren Childers, compliance analyst, employee since 2021

“My experience with the Allianz True Connections Sponsorship Program has been both surprising and rewarding. I was paired with an executive sponsor who really took the time to get to know me and advocate for me when necessary. Programs like this help give racially and ethnically diverse people the opportunity to be seen and heard in spaces we may not have the chance to be in. Not due to lack of talent and/or desire, but in some cases, due to lack of visibility, advocacy, and influence.”

- Shanticka Buchanan, senior consultant, diversity, equity, and inclusion, employee since 2005

- Katherine Lehmann, operations director, employee since 2004
