TRYG INSURENCE EMPLOYEE ADVOCACY
Greetings, awesome tech companions
These years Tryg and Alka are on a quest: We want to revolutionize an ancient industry with old dogmas and traditional ways of working…The insurance industry! Therefore, we have set out on a digital journey, a transformation and a hunt for more skilled tech talents!
But it is not an easy quest! We are not the only company looking for tech talent: Our competitors in the Insurance Industry are also moving in a digital direction, as well as every other business on the Global job market have a hunger for tech talent. In other words: We are not alone – but luckily we have great opportunities to offer, we just need to be (a bit) more loud about it – that’s why we need you
To be able to reach out and attract the best tech talents on the job market, we were glad to hear that you volunteered in our newly created Employee Advocacy Tech CoP – which at a daily base just will be referred to as “The awesome people”!
Who is The awesome people – and what will we be doing?
The awesome people is a gathering of approx. 50 of our brightest minds within the walls of Tryg and Alka, counting companions from the great houses of BID Development, Operations, Claims, Data Warehouse and Customer Experience in both Denmark and Norway. You have all been chosen because of your position as internal tech ambassadors and your ability to reach into the tech communities as trusted equals.
These assets are crucial in order to strengthen our talent pipeline and to increase the amount of qualified candidates for tech positions in Tryg and Alka. Studies show that brand messages reached 561% further when shared by employee's and content shared by employees are considered 76 % more trustworthy than content shared by brands (well, there is something to think about!).
In other words: Your personal brands and channels are our most effective weapon in our hunt for talent.Off course HR and Marketing will contribute in the formal employer branding and attraction, but without you guys… we will never reach our full potential.
So, what we would like you to do is to activate your social network on LinkedIn and other communities, by sharing posts about your passion for tech and telling the story about your workplace. Use your personal platform to inspire other like-minded, so they know where to go, when considering their next career step. This is the meaning of Employee Advocacy.
