For the wider team, the Jigsaw partnership is an example of how diversity enriches the workplace. This aligns with Allianz’s responsible business goals, helping advance wellbeing and making sure people thrive at work.
“Jigsaw provided some training in how to support neurodiverse individuals,” explains Alana, “but beyond that it’s been so rewarding to see the Allianz and Jigsaw team work together to achieve positive outcomes.”
The team at Jigsaw Australia share a similar sentiment, "The Underwriting team have been so welcoming and supportive of the Jigsaw team. It's been amazing to see the growth and skill development of each of the team members during the pilot period. This experience has been invaluable," says Jessie Moore, Strategic Account Manager, Jigsaw Australia.
And looking ahead, Alana explains, “The ultimate goal is to transition Jigsaw participants into permanent employment within Allianz, if they’re interested.”
“And we’re constantly looking for different opportunities where we can continue to work with Jigsaw… because we can really see the difference that they’re making.”
