What does your work as General Director at DONAU Versicherung mean, Ms. Hawasi?

Judith Hawasi: It is an exciting and varied task. Insurance touches all areas of life. For me, working with people is very important. I am familiar with the DONAU teams in all federal states, including Burgenland. Commitment to our customersA colleague pulls inInside out. The region is the center of the DONAU. We create jobs, provide excellent training and provide security to our customers. The best team in Burgenland does this very well. We make this clear with the new state headquarters in Eisenstadt.

Working with people is very different. What requirements should you have for this?

The DONAU offers many opportunities. We're not just looking for insurance professionals – we're also looking for communication career changers with lots of life and professional experience. Meeting people openly, understanding their queries and concerns, and providing them with the right coverage – this is what comprehensive customer orientation requires. Work as an insurance and pension consultant allows you to combine work and personal life thanks to flexible scheduling – which opens up wonderful perspectives.

The insurance industry is a highly competitive market. How do you feel about this in your daily work?

Digitization has come to the fore. We also have new opportunities for collaboration and new ways to communicate with our customers. Consultations can be conducted online and are digitally supported for completion. At the same time, we are attentive and rely on personal contact. In everyday work life, digitization makes many things possible that were unthinkable just a few years ago.
