The « CAPITAL » magazine label anew awarded to Covéa
At a study’s conclusion of 20,000 employees in more than 2,000 companies, Covéa and its brands are distinguished among the best 500 French companies. Ranked 134th on 500 companies, Covéa shows a significant increase compared to the previous ranking. This progression is even more noteworthy in the insurance sector as the Group is ranked 6th on 25.
These rankings have been established on the basis of recommendations made by the company’s employees and by employees in the same line of business. Themes are related to working conditions, to the outlook for career progression, for training and to the work-life balance.
It’s a ranking which awards the quality of careers within the Group, the positive working environment and the recruitment prospects. In 2019, Covéa plans for the hiring of 2,200 positions (permanent and fixed-term contracts) and of more than 150 work-study students.
