Training and development is an integral part of your career with the VIG, and goes a long way towards preparing you for the challenges of tomorrow. We value the diversity of our staff and see it as a source of strength. This diversity is built on shared visions, values and strategies, and is clearly evident in our training and development programs. We work together with respected training institutions, and their trainers stand out for their specialist expertise and professionalism. Our aim is to give access to a comprehensive and coordinated portfolio of personal and professional development courses.
Diversity in our training offer
The VIG Corporate University offers Group-wide leadership and management development programs for different target groups. We cooperate with internationally renowned universities and speakers. Together, we develop tailor-made programs, which offer a lot of room and flexibility for managers. Practice-orientated, value-driven and the constant thinking-outside-the-box are the foundation of each program. Our aim is to create new ways for development, which offer sustainability and inspiration for the organization and for each individual.
The VIG Technical Academies cover the group-wide development in technical topics such as underwriting, risk management and business process management. Apart from experienced, internal experts who talk about process standards and specifics about the VIG, we also involve renowned external speakers from science and business.
Above that, we offer attractive prospects for experts – as alternative to the traditional managerial career – by providing an extensive and tailor-made set of trainings.
The manifold range of VIG Holding programs such as intercultural training, coaching, project readiness and communication skills is primarily designed to meet the needs of Head Office staff, but are also open to employees of other Group companies. Excellent external coaches support our experts and managers.
Réka Hassa coordinates the VIG Underwriting Academy within Corporate and Large Customer Business and supports participants from the whole VIG Group.
„I had already been at VIG for a while and thought that I knew everything. But then I realized that I had some learning to do. I may have been a VIG employee, but I wasn’t VIG through and through until I took part in the IEDC Leadership Development Programme in Bled in Slovenia in 2011. I met some amazing people there, both professionally and privately, from all over CEE – people who I can now call friends. I discovered how rewarding it can be to work with a diverse group of intelligent, professional people who are keen to learn. We were pushed to our limits, and honed our skills, learned new things and searched for answers together. The programme lasted for about a year, and I didn’t return as a VIG employee but as a VIG fan! When I started at Bulstrad, we were ranked sixth in the life market. In 2013 our goal was to become number two. Every improvement in our market share was a milestone which strengthened my belief that nothing is impossible in my job.” Svetla Nestorova, General Manager Bulstrad Life, Bulgaria
