Roadmap

In 2014, the Unipol Group embarked on a path that led to the creation of an integrated platform that monitors progress and supervises critical issues, directing the Company towards initiatives capable of improving and protecting its reputation assets. The focus of the 2019-2021 three-year period will be to guarantee the deployment and internal actionability of insights that emerged from the analysis of the Group’s reputation with key stakeholders, in order to support the positioning of Unipol, especially with regard to “Mobility, Welfare and Property” ecosystems in line with the “Mission>Evolve” Strategic Plan, and to maintain its reputation leadership in the sector.

For each of the RepTrak® reputational factors, the Unipol scorecard indicates the specific attributes that define the promise of Unipol: what Unipol wishes to become and has made a commitment for.

The scorecard is the compass for engagement activities: it is used as a metric for the stakeholders’ assessment in regular surveys and as a filter for interpreting/classifying (off and online) media content and for the subsequent analysis of issues and sentiment.

The scorecard also guides the mapping of reputational risk scenarios for the purpose of an all-round protection of reputational capital.
