Insurance firm Aviva is deploying a talent management system that will ultimately cover 60,000 staff across over 25 countries.
The UK insurer is deploying the ETWeb system from StepStone, which will help Aviva build a transparent, up-to-date view of the capabilities and experience of staff across the group's every business unit globally.
The StepStone system is designed to help Aviva retain and develop its staff, improve the ratio of internal promotions to internal hires, and drive succession planning by finding succession options for senior level positions.
At the same time, ETWeb will help Aviva put its employees in the driving seat of their own careers. Using ETWeb's self-service features, staff will be able to feed back to line managers and HR professionals on their skills and career objectives, whilst gaining accurate, up-to-date information on the progress they make against development objectives.
The first phase of the deployment will be completed in the first quarter of next year. This will cover 1,300 senior management staff, from country chief executives to heads of departments.
Over the next year, Aviva plans to roll this out to the next management tier to incorporate a total of 7,000 employees.
"Finding and developing the best talent is at the heart of our business and we are committed to ensuring we continually challenge, reward and develop people who want to build an international career," said Arvinder Dhesi, group talent management director at Aviva.
