Headquartered in Italy, Generali Group is a major player in the global insurance industry and was ranked 43rd in MIT Technology Review's 2015 list of Smartest Companies.  The company participated in a pilot project sponsored by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) in 2012 and has now fully embraced integrated reporting as a key component of its business strategy.

Jyoti Banerjee, the technology initiative program lead for the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), will direct the conversation.  The 30-minute interview will touch on:

  • The drivers behind the adoption of integrated reporting
  • How an integrated reporting framework has changed external and internal reporting
  • Operational and process benefits derived from integrated reporting
  • The impact of integrated reporting on the company's systems and technology ecosystem

"Integrated reporting <IR> asks companies to stretch way beyond short-term financial thinking to a more holistic view of how the company creates and maintains value," said Banerjee.  "Generali Group proactively embarked on this journey and is now seeing quantifiable benefits from the transition. During this webinar, Massimo will discuss how integrated reporting prepares a company for new or expanded regulatory reporting requirements, while at the same time improving how current and future business value is communicated to internal and external stakeholders including the investment community."

"At Tagetik we've believed in the value of the integrated reporting framework from its inception," said Dave Kasabian, chief marketing officer for Tagetik.  "We also believe integrated reporting should be the goal of every company. But, we understand that it can be perceived as a daunting initiative.  This is why we often help companies take a phased approach, to bring incremental value while paving the way to the ultimate goal of a single report that communicates financial performance and value creation across all six pillars of the <IR> Framework."  Tagetik is a member of the International Integrated Reporting Council's <IR> Technology Initiative, formed to build a deeper understanding of how technology can be applied to assist adopters of integrated reporting.
