The employees of Allianz Insurance have selected Mind, the leading mental health charity and their sister charity SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health), as their new charity partner.
The partnership, starting on 1 February 2019, will initially last three years and will see local fundraising activities take place at Allianz offices across the UK to support the charity’s work.
Allianz employees have set themselves the ambitious target of raising £1 million to help the charity’s campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of mental health.
All of our employees are entitled to 10 hours of paid leave per year to volunteer in their local community every year. We encourage this level of participation as part of your role at Allianz because we want to:
Enhance our employee’s personal development by expanding the range of skills and experiences available to them
Underline our aims to be a great place to work, by encouraging morale and motivation amongst our people
Have a demonstrable, positive contribution to our society and the environment in which we live and work.
Allianz supports a variety of forms of volunteering; recognising that it is a personal choice and, therefore, employees should be free to choose their activity.
