Our Board are proud to announce that we have signed Inclusive Behaviours in Insurance Pledge. Showing  our commitment to a culture where inclusive behaviours are the standard and where everyone within our group is accepting of diversity. 


Joining the founding Pledge signatories Lloyd’s and Zurich, along with the other insurance companies. 


Inga Beale, CEO, Lloyd’s said, “Having worked in the insurance sector for 36 years, I’ve seen just how far it has come, particularly in the last decade. I’m proud of the progress that has been made, but the job isn’t over yet. The Inclusive Behaviours Pledge is a public commitment reinforcing our promise as individual organisations, and as a collective, to challenge inappropriate behaviour and create increasingly welcoming and inclusive workplaces for the diverse talent powering our sector.


Tulsi Naidu, CEO, Zurich UK said, “My experience is that the insurance industry is a great place to work but we do still see examples of bad behaviour and that’s why we think this pan-industry initiative is so important.  We believe the Inclusive Behaviours Pledge will send a clear signal that the leadership of our industry is committed to working together to drive out inappropriate or discriminatory behaviour.  We want our current and future employees to be confident in the insurance industry as a sector that is inclusive and welcoming to all”.


 A dedicated website, inclusiveinsurancepledge.co.uk, has also been launched, where companies can read about the Pledge and sign up online to support to have clear policies and procedures in place for reporting any inappropriate or discriminatory behaviour in the workplace .
