Diversity and Inclusion

We recognise the importance of having a diverse, inclusive workforce that is made up of employees from different backgrounds.

Be yourself. Be unique. Together we're Allianz.

We believe that the difference in our people makes the difference to our business.

We also want to better understand our diverse customer base and make provisions that they can access our products and services or find specially tailored solutions for their needs.

We are a Disability Confident Employer, which recognises the good things we’re already doing in terms of employing and supporting disabled people while challenging us to keep improving.
We have a range of active employee networks which are voluntary, employee-led groups– including Allianz Pride (LGBT+ and Allies Network for the UK) along with others focusing on gender, cultural diversity and ethnicity, mental wellness, disability, sustainability and working parents. 
These networks help bring individuals together to offer support, networking opportunities and a sense of community. However, they also offer a collective voice and source of expertise to help Allianz identify and remove barriers which employees may face and support the inclusion and contributions of all employees.

Babu works as a Technical Team Leader and is the network lead of Allianz ENRICH.

Allianz is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions Programme, the leading employers’ programme for ensuring all LGBTQ+ staff are “accepted without exception” in the workplace. Our 2021 membership enables us to recognise and celebrate the good steps we have already taken to embed LGBT inclusion, while having access to tools and consultancy time with experts who can help us to continue on our journey towards creating a truly diverse workforce and great place to work for all.

We know that people perform better and enjoy an enhanced employee experience when they feel able to bring their full selves to work. Our Stonewall membership demonstrates our commitment to continue listening, learning, and working towards the cutting edge of practice that can help our organisation to attract and retain the best talent and stand out in a  competitive market.

We also have an LGBTQ+ and Allies employee network, Allianz Pride UK, who champion best practices while providing a safe space for open conversation, support and feedback.

Allianz is committed to achieving a minimum of 40% female representation across our management population by 2024.

Women in Finance Charter

Allianz is proud to be one of more than 370 firms across the financial services sector who have signed up to the HM Treasury ‘Women in Finance Charter’ – a commitment to gender balance across financial services. 

The Women in Finance Charter was created in March 2016. Its main aim is to support gender diversity at all levels within financial firms and to build a more balanced and fair industry.

When we signed up to the Charter in 2017 we had 32.7% female representation. As of December 2022,  we have 37.1% female representation in senior management.  Our new ambition is to have 40% females in senior roles by the end of 2024.

We are continuing our focus on this area of diversity and inclusion in order to maintain and further strengthen our position.  Economic Dividend for Gender Equality (EDGE) is a renowned external certification and we’re pleased to have started 2022 as globally EDGE certified.  In the UK we achieved the ‘Move’ level certification (similar to a Silver in a Bronze, Silver, Gold scale) and will use the detailed EDGE overview to help us achieve the highest level of certification. Talent management, workplace strategies and a wider diversity and inclusion agenda and culture are complementing each other as enablers for sustainable improvement of our gender balance.

Fair pay

To support equality we must have fair pay. We’re confident men and women are paid equally for doing the same job at Allianz UK. However, we have fewer women in senior roles, which creates a gender pay gap. Equal pay and gender pay gap both deal with the levels of pay females get at work and are both very important, but they are two different measures.


We’re proud to have been accredited as a Disability Confident Employer, which recognises the good things we’re already doing in terms of employing and supporting disabled people whilst challenging us to keep improving.

We’ve created a network for employees with a disability and those who are passionate about the topic, to enable us to support each other and also provide feedback on how to make Allianz a more disability friendly place to work.

We also have a Customer AllAbility group which looks at promoting and championing best practices for meeting the needs of our vulnerable customers.

Allianz has a barrier-free policy whereby we are committed to removing barriers to the application and recruitment process as much as possible.

We work closely with a number of organisations, including the Business Disability Forum, to ensure we are disability-smart.

Candidates will be judged on suitability for a job alone. When applying, candidates will be asked whether any adjustments are needed for the recruitment process. We’re dedicated to ensuring we’re able to meet any specific needs for a disabled candidate – whether that’s through better access, different equipment or alternative formats for literature

As part of our commitment, provided a candidate has made us aware they’re disabled and meet the minimum requirements of the vacancy – we will guarantee an interview for that person.
