The gala dinner was the occasion to reward HR personalities and consultants for their work.
Open to the whole HR community until last year, the vote was this time restricted to a jury of 50 human resources managers. They were selected from among candidates with the aim of fairly representing the different sectors of the employment market in Luxembourg: industry, the public sector, finance, services, building and civil engineering, retail trade, transport and logistics.
Despite the new rules relating to the ballot, Swiss Life was elected “Best Pension Solutions” provider for the sixth time in a row.
The awards were granted using different assessment criteria such as professionalism, innovation, business ethics and the products’ and services’ added value. The “Best Pension Solutions Award” assessment criteria also included the quality of the back office and reporting.
The “Best Pension Solutions” award has been presented to Swiss Life every year since 2003. Nevertheless, “this year’s award has special meaning for Swiss Life”, said Tanguy Pollet, Chief Executive Officer in Luxembourg. “It demonstrates the unwavering trust the Luxembourg HR community grants us, which is even more valuable in the current economic climate and in a year where we set up our new organisation at Swiss Life. This award encourages us to pursue our efforts to further satisfy our clients and to be the first choice partner for corporate solutions.”
Earlier in the afternoon, Tanguy Pollet had participated in a round table on the themes developed by the three speakers of the day:
- the Executive Vice-President of Nokia, Hallstein Moerk, who presented his company’s human capital management;
- the Luxembourg Minister for Labour and Employment, François Biltgen, who summarised the employment situation and perspectives in the Grand Duchy;
- Mr Peter M. Felix, President of the Association of Executive Search Consultants, who explained the role of executive search in the global war for talent.
Tanguy Polet took the opportunity to stress the growing importance of the supplementary pension scheme in the context of increased competition between employers and at a time where public pension systems have demonstrated their limitations.
