Despite these challenging times, we won’t simply bury our heads in the sand. With our coronavirus initiatives, we support our customers, employees, partners and the community at our locations in Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg.

Providing aid is sustainable

For us, providing aid in the form of various coronavirus initiatives is a matter of course. After all, we see long-term success as a company in the creation of value for all stakeholder groups. In line with our sustainable business management concept, we see our stakeholder groups as resources. The only way to create value and thus continue operating sustainably as a company in the long term is by supporting all our resource groups – this includes our customers, employees, partners and the community. These relationships are illustrated in our value-added model:

Thanks to our coronavirus task force made up of experts, we were able to observe the situation surrounding the coronavirus pandemic from the very beginning and quickly implement measures. This allowed us to consistently ensure the highest level of safety for our employees and customers. We managed this whilst keeping our service at the usual high level. For our resource groups, we implemented measures and started initiatives in order to help mitigate the issues surrounding the coronavirus crisis.

Our main priority is always the well-being of our employees: just two days after the outbreak of the crisis, around 95 per cent of our employees were working remotely. In addition, we have of course provided protective equipment such as masks, gloves and disinfectant. Numerous initiatives have been introduced by the human resources department and employees themselves in order to foster a team spirit and support the welfare of employees.

We always offer a helping hand to our partners

We have strengthened our expertise exchanges with partners and are pushing forward with digitalisation for consultation in order to successfully stand by our customers even throughout this crisis.

Stronger in the future

Security, sustainability and resilience were the pillars of our corporate governance: thanks to our sustainable business model, Baloise has shown itself to be resilient throughout the coronavirus crisis. With our range of initiatives, we are helping our resource groups so they too can overcome this crisis. We want to be even better prepared for the effects of a pandemic in the future, for example by developing cooperation solutions via public and private institutions.
