Onboarding with us

Your ideal start with us

Congratulations, you've got the job! To make your start with us as successful as possible, we have various modules that will familiarise you optimally with our #ConnectingPower culture and everything to do with the reinsurance business. Let's go. The following onboarding modules apply to the Hannover office. Onboarding at our international locations may differ from this.

Your onboarding buddy 

On your first day, your onboarding buddy will meet you at the reception and take you to your division. You will meet your new team and your regular contacts. This person will be with you for the first few days and weeks to help you settle into your new environment and responsibilities.

Your orientation plan 

We have prepared for your start with us. Your team has already drawn up an orientation plan. It will help you get off to a good start in the first few weeks and will provide you with a reliable guide.

"My start at Hannover Re was very good. I particularly liked the fact that my colleagues took a lot of time for me during my orientation and were always willing to answer my questions. This also applied to enquiries from contacts with whom I had no previous experience"

Your 100-day review 

After three months, you will meet with your line manager and the responsible Business Advisor from the HR division for a 100-day review. The focus is on feedback on how the first few weeks have gone – from your perspective and, of course, from ours. This enables us to identify and implement opportunities for improvement together at an early stage.

Your introduction to reinsurance 

Reinsurance isn't something you usually learn about at university, which is why we take the time to familiarise you with the subject. We offer intensive, international induction programmes called ReEssentials to give you the best possible start. These courses provide you with a wide range of business insights, from the basics of reinsurance and the specifics of underwriting to the ins and outs of technical accounting. This will prepare you well for your respective role. Fostering our We-Spirit is a matter close to our hearts. We learn together and laugh together, and you'll enjoy our friendly atmosphere. Our ReEssentials also give you plenty of space to network, meet new people and exchange ideas.
