Standards for ourselves and our suppliers
Reporting an incident
Our SpeakUp@Allianz tool and the other reporting channels are open to anyone who works for the Allianz Group or its suppliers. It is also open for anyone else, inside or outside Allianz, who has information about a potential or actual wrongdoing related to Allianz entities or their suppliers.
You can report an incident also if you are not directly affected by it. If you have been affected by an incident, you can also ask someone else to submit a report on your behalf.
You can report incidents either anonymously or you can provide your identity.
Regardless of how you submit your concern (email, via the SpeakUp@Allianz tool, letter, or in-person), your report will be handled with the utmost diligence and confidentiality.
Anyone can report incidents at any time via the following channels:
Concerns may also be reported in-person directly to the Compliance Department. This channel of communication is not intended for complaints that do not reflect an act of wrongdoing or a violation of external or internal corporate rules.
You also have the right to report externally to competent local authorities if you prefer to.
Allianz Technology and Allianz Services examine all submitted messages and ensure that they remain confidential, and that the involved parties are treated equally.
Please be advised that your message can only be investigated if it contains sufficient information. Hence, we ask you to provide as many details as possible. If, however, you do not have access to detailed information, this should not prevent you from voicing your concerns.
When you submit a report, we will confirm receipt of this within 7 days. For country specific information, if any, please choose the country of operation from the drop-down list.
It is useful for our investigations team if you provide your name and/or an e-mail address when submitting a report. This enables us to contact you in case we have any follow-up questions. If you would prefer to remain anonymous, however, we will respect your decision and your concern will still be investigated.
Allianz Technology and Allianz Services do not tolerate retaliation in any form against anyone who submits a report in good faith (that means that the reporting person had reasonable belief that the information about the reported incident was true). This remains the case even in cases where an investigation does not confirm the allegations made.
In the context of a reported incident, retaliation could take the form of any action (or omission) that could lead to an unjustified disadvantage for the reporting person, such as:
- HR measures (e.g., written warning, transfer to another unit/department/entity, termination, withholding of promotions)
- Harassment or mobbing (e.g., creation of a hostile work environment, offensive and harmful behavior, intimidation of any kind,
un welcomed physical contact, exclusion from team activities)
- Compensation aspects (e.g., salary or bonus cuts)
If you experience retaliation as a result of your report, please do not hesitate to contact us either through the SpeakUp@Allianz tool or via the other channels as outlined above.
Your information will be treated confidentially. We take appropriate steps to make careful use of all information received, and to safeguard the interests of all
involved persons. All data provided is processed in accordance with applicable data privacy requirements.
