At LV= General Insurance, our people are at the heart of everything we do
We’re committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment where everyone in the organisation is valued as an individual. We want everyone to feel that they're able to participate in every aspect of their life at LV= and to achieve their potential. We believe everybody counts.
At LV= General Insurance, we believe a diverse and inclusive culture is paramount to a successful and happy workforce. For us, it’s about creating a sense of belonging for everyone who works here. We strive to create a working environment where everyone feels valued and respected for their individual contribution and feels comfortable bringing their true self to work.
We know that having a broad range of perspectives, ideas and opinions makes for a more innovative, dynamic and collaborative place to work.
Mike Crane - D&I Exec Sponsor
“As D&I Exec Sponsor I feel really strongly about supporting all our colleagues to bring their true selves to work and feel valued for their contribution. Diversity more now than ever is vital to a thriving organisation. We need the thoughts, ideas and challenges from different backgrounds and experiences to not only make sure we’re equipped for the future but to mirror the customer base that we serve.
We all have a part to play in our D&I journey. We’ll never ‘solve it’ – it’ll continue inevitably – but I look forward to helping to make a change.”
Our employee networks
To help us achieve a truly inclusive culture, LV= General Insurance has created a number of employee networks. These groups enable all different aspects of diversity and inclusion to be heard and supported, while providing education and action on a wide range of topics impacting our people. These networks give everyone a voice, and aim to broaden the awareness and understanding of a wide range of issues and movements.
We recognise that every individual is different and we encourage all of our employee networks to consider the challenges and needs of their colleagues. Our people can join as many employee networks as they would like. In addition, all employee resource groups have a voice at the Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee, which is chaired by our Diversity and Inclusion Executive Sponsor, Mike Crane. This ensures that everyone’s voice is heard.
Some of the groups supported by our networks include:
- Mental Health
The Gender Pay Gap
As well as listening to our own people, we also look externally to educate ourselves and challenge our thinking. We do this to ensure that we are constantly learning, raising our standards and evolving to adapt to the ever changing world. We’re proud to be associated with a number of organisations who support us in achieving this through commitments, initiatives and partnerships to guide us on our diversity and inclusion journey.
