Generations Mentoring at Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty
Generation Y, generation X, baby boomers…
At AGCS, the generational mix is equally split across each group. We recognize that each generation brings its own set of expertise and know-how and contributes to our collective success. To effectively harness, manage and engage the generational mix, we have set up both traditional mentoring and reverse mentoring programs to leverage on the strengths and expertise of our people.
The concept behind the reverse mentoring initiative is to pair senior leaders with younger employees who can train and mentor them on the topics on various topics, allowing our senior professionals to develop and sharpen their skills in that specific area. Reverse Mentoring is a two-way flow of learning as it also provides the mentor with the opportunity to learn from a seasoned business leaders.
Sharing knowledge with a different generation increases multigenerational engagement and ultimately closes the knowledge gap for both the mentee and the mentor.
