How We Stay Ahead
We strive to continuously access new sources of knowledge and experience, challenge common wisdom and create new nodes in our professional networks. To achieve these goals, we pursue different avenues:
We have strengthened our ties to applied research at several universities in Germany and abroad. As part of this cooperation, we support specific research projects, sponsor doctoral students and collaborate with different professors. These activities allow us to stay at the forefront of new scientific developments and obtain access to a large talent pool.
Our structure of multi-functional teams with overlapping skills facilitates the flow of ideas across our company. That is supported by an open in-house community focused on Business Technology that inspires the exchange of knowledge and experience. Plus, we provide access to innovative technology stacks for training and to our internal E-learning platform.
We link up with the professional community by joining global organisations like PRMIA, obtaining professional certificates, hosting tech meet-ups, attending symposiums such as Risk Minds or DKF, presenting at technology user conferences and publishing in journals such as Risk Magazine. On the technological side, we contribute to open-source projects.
