Bringing Allianz Australia's EVP to life through authentic storytelling
To truly launch their EVP locally, Allianz Australia had to own their 4x ‘Reasons to Believe’ - and bring them to life through authentic and inspiring stories from their people. The overarching idea of ‘confidence’ leveraged from the corporate brand was also a strong, emotional driver for candidates wanting to join Allianz.
EVP Messaging Playbook
Leveraging employee research, we refined Allianz's global EVP; including proof points, pillars and overall narrative (as seen below) into a localised messaging 'playbook' that would resonate with candidates and employees in Australia.
Behind the scenes
Over a 3-day shoot, we started with audio booths to capture authentic stories from the heart. Scripts were pre-written (post-interviews) and the challenge was to get the employees speak with a conversational tone. Day 2 was capturing all the 'at work' moments that brought each of their stories to life. And Day 3 was lots of fun - throwing projected footage over the employees.

For Alex, there’s been constant unexpected twists and turns.

Jamie wants his kids to experience nature as he did growing up in the Blue Mountains.
The threat of natural disasters destroying rainforests and mangroves where he grew up is a reality that Jamie fears may come true.

As a cancer survivor, Christina values well-being across all aspects of her life.
When you get your life back, you want to live it to the max. Which is exactly how Christina felt the day she rang the bell after her final cancer treatment. She wanted to give back, make a difference and do all the things that would keep her life in shape – mentally, physically. socially and financially. At Allianz she can. She lives her best life through flexibility and benefits that care for her health and wellbeing.
Redefining what it means to work for an insurance company.
We developed a video concept built around employees imagining a better future for themselves and the world. We go on a journey from hope for the future, overcoming struggles and then conclude by seeing their dreams confidently realised at Allianz. Each story is inspired by one of the 4x ‘Reasons to Believe’ - Caring for your future career development. Caring for all the things that make you, you. Caring for life’s twists and turns. Caring for our society and planet. Launched via LinkedIN by the employees themselves, the videos combined have gathered organically 1168 YouTube views, 21,478 LinkedIN post views, 376 reactions, 123 comments and 30 shares.
