Learning and growing  

The Swiss Life Asset Managers career development framework empowers employees with a comprehensive range of internal and external opportunities. At our internal Swiss Life AM Academy, our team can access a diverse array of developmental programmes, specifically designed to enhance their skills and knowledge. We acknowledge the importance of external learning experiences, actively supporting and encouraging pursuits such as obtaining role-relevant certifications.

At Swiss Life Asset Managers, we understand the importance of a well-rounded onboarding experience. By combining division-wide virtual workshops and e-learning modules with localised approaches, we provide new employees with the knowledge, connections and tools they need to hit the ground running. This approach not only promotes a sense of belonging but also sets the stage for long-term success within our organisation. 

These immersive virtual workshops bring together new joiners across Europe, fostering a sense of community and collaboration. Attendees have the chance to interact directly with the executive committee, ask them questions and gain insights into strategic initiatives. 

Time is precious when you start a new job. That’s why we’ve put together a series of e-learning modules covering the history, organisation and culture of Swiss Life Asset Managers to help you find your feet, quickly and easily. We also run legal and compliance sessions to ensure new employees have a sound grasp of the guidelines. 

We customise our onboarding to cater to specific local nuances, fostering a successful, effective start for each individual. 

Leadership development

Our commitment to quality leadership at Swiss Life Asset Managers is exemplified by our specialised leadership development course. This equips our managers with the skills they need to grow and lead effectively, enabling them to build trust-based relationships, innovate and inspire their teams. In addition, it fosters dialogue among our leadership community – and helps us to support our employees’ professional growth.  In addition to our core leadership development programme, we offer supplementary courses on crucial aspects of leadership, like inclusive management and team empowerment. In the modern age, the only constant is change – and our change leadership course gives managers the ability to navigate and lead through organisational change. 

Talent pools 

Talent pools are a cornerstone of the Swiss Life Asset Managers career development framework. Employees can also be added to one of our talent pools, allowing them to showcase their skills to a wider audience within the organisation. This promotes visibility, recognition and the opportunity for individuals to contribute their unique talents to broader initiatives.
