We recognise the importance of having a diverse, inclusive workforce that is made up of employees from different backgrounds.
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.
Be yourself. Be unique. Together we're Allianz.
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.
We have a number of activities in place to support our commitment to gender equality, from unconscious bias e-learning through to ensuring diversity is reflected in our recruitment process. Our networking and development programmes connect leaders with rising talent and forums which actively support our people in achieving their full potential.
We have an employee network specifically looking at achieving a gender balance at Allianz and others looking to support working parents and carers.
We’re proud to have been accredited as a Business 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.
