Allianz Insurance has been ranked 29 in The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List

Posted: 3 December 2020

Now in its fifth year, the list has become the leading cross industry index harnessing best practice and innovation to drive inclusion for all. Announced through a virtual event, The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers is a dynamic resource that has identified the most inclusive companies across the nation.

The disruption of Covid-19 followed by the impact of the Black Lives Matter Movement has prompted employers to adapt and highlighted those that are leading with inclusion at the forefront.

Inclusive Companies founder and CEO, Paul Sesay commented: “This year, more than any other, Inclusive Companies have seen a shift in the inclusion approach of organisations participating in the Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List.

Companies featured on this year’s list have felt the importance of ensuring individual voices are heard and standing up as responsible employers against discrimination and inequality. Those who ranked are on a continuous journey but have made it their mission to advocate for inclusive workplaces where everyone feels empowered to be the very best they can be.”

Compiled by a dedicated panel of judges, organisations featured have provided sufficient evidence on an amalgamation of topics including recruitment procedures, training and a host of diversity related initiatives. Demonstrating the promotion of all strands of diversity including age, disability, gender, LGBT, race, faith & religion; the list also focuses on representation at management, senior, executive and board level.

Allianz Insurance has been recognised for its continuous dedication to diversity, equality and inclusion.

Julie Harrison, chief HR officer, Allianz Insurance, commented: “It’s fantastic to be featured on the list again and we’re proud to have moved from 30th to 29th in the space of a year. We’re constantly looking for ways to improve and have already made great strides so it’s great to be recognised for that externally. Through our passionate employee networks, committed executive sponsors and external pledges we’re absolutely on the right track and will continue to work together to make Allianz an even more inclusive place to work.”
