About UIA (Insurance) Ltd


What is it like to work for UIA (Insurance) Ltd

My Manager
My Manager
Managers and directors value their employees and send emails where customer service or performance has exceeded expectations. Length of service is rewarded after 10, 15 and 25 years. They listen and engage with employees through a survey which takes place bi-annually. Company results are published on the intranet which shows previous results alongside current results. The survey results also provide a comparison, where available, to the 'norm'. Department results are fed back by managers via team meetings and all staff are encouraged to submit suggestions for improvements. Results are also included in half yearly presentations to staff.
Wellbeing
