Insurance Industry Takes 'Huge Step Forward' in Boosting Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
People with autism often have valuable strengths and talents for the workplace. Consultants from auticon possess significant cognitive abilities, such as systematic approaches, logical analysis, pattern recognition, error detection and high concentration levels, making them ideally suited for roles in analytics, test automation, data governance and complex software development.
In recent years, Zurich has worked with auticon on numerous different projects across Switzerland, the UK, and most recently with Zurich Insurance plc (ZIP), where teams are analysing claims data to create innovative frameworks and reporting tools.
Inspired by the successful collaboration with auticon consultants, the new global service agreement between Zurich and auticon makes it possible to skip multiple processes from due diligence through to financial checks since many of these activities are already completed. This allows business units to engage with auticon on projects more easily and quickly.
Andrea Girlanda, Chief Executive of auticon UK says: "The new global service agreement between auticon and Zurich is a huge step forward in helping boost employability amongst autistic adults. It sends an important and positive signal to others, in the insurance industry and beyond, that making it easier to bring neurodiverse talent into the workplace isn't only good for individuals, but it makes great business sense too."
Erica Arnold, EMEA & Bank Distribution's Chief Operating Officer, is an ardent champion of auticon and the quality of work they deliver: "auticon has proven to be a valuable resource for us over the years and this global service agreement is a great example of how we're equipping Zurich to better meet the needs of our customers and supporting diversity and inclusion in the workplace."
