Allianz Holdings celebrates new UK Inclusive Employer ranking
In recognition of its continued dedication to workplace diversity and inclusion, Allianz Holdings has been ranked 14th in The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List. Now in its seventh year, the list has become a definitive cross-industry index recognising best practice and innovation with the goal of driving inclusion for all.
Inclusive Companies helps organisations create cultural transformation through a “hearts and mind” approach to increase social inclusion and empowerment with the intention of embedding diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) into everything they practice as an essential ingredient.
Founder and CEO of Inclusive Companies Paul Sesay commented: “The independent advisory panel of experts review and analyse each submission. They look at ALL areas of diversity, including age, culture, disability, ethnicity, gender, LGBTQ+ and religion. Those organisations who have participated submit a great wealth of evidence regarding their inclusive practices, covering a wide range of areas and topics, and it is from this that the experts determine the Top 50 Inclusive Employers.”
Allianz Holdings, which includes well-known brands such as LV= General Insurance, Petplan and Allianz Insurance, has achieved a number of DEI successes in 2022, including the introduction of new flexible working policies, the launch of menopause support e-learning modules (for employees and line managers) and ongoing Race at Work Charter training and education. These highlights sit alongside the work undertaken by HR teams and employee network members, with areas of activity spanning a range of topics from working parents and Pride through to age and mental health.
Laura Paterson, Head of D&I, Allianz Holdings commented: "It’s wonderful to be featured on this list again and the result is a testament to the hard work and passion of all of our people. We’re absolutely committed to fostering an inclusive culture where a valued and diverse workforce can be heard, contribute, grow and feel a sense of belonging. It’s an ongoing journey and whilst we’re really proud of the progress we have made and to have been recognised externally, we can’t be complacent and I’m very pleased that our new D&I Strategy will drive our ambitions even further in 2023."
