Representing our global workforce
All voices at Aviva deserve to be heard.
Aviva Communities are one of the ways we are working to become a more inclusive organisation. We have established six employee resource groups, bringing together a wide range of support networks from across the business.
From mentor programmes and apprenticeships, to social awareness campaigns, these groups help ensure that all our employees have an equal voice and are fairly represented.
Our communities are:
- AvivAbility – developing a disability smart workforce
- Aviva Balance – supporting gender parity
- Aviva Carers – supporting carers and parents
- Aviva Generations – an intergenerational workplace
- Aviva Origins – celebrating cultural difference, including race, ethnicity, faith and belief, and social mobility
- Aviva Pride – being yourself at work, LGBT+
Our carers community
Supporting Aviva colleagues so that they can have full, rewarding careers aswell as the space they need to care for loved ones.
Executive Committee Sponsorship
Our CEO is chair of our Global Inclusion Council, bringing together the senior leaders responsible for each community to share and monitor our progress. We recognise that our people may identify with a number of diversity dimensions which is why our Communities work closely together to deepen our inclusion efforts.
Aviva’s Mid-life MOT is designed to support our growing population of over-45s. Launched in 2019, the programme helps to prepare our employees for a fuller working life, encouraging our people to think about their wealth, work and wellbeing.
Our Generations community played a key role in the pilot process, helping us to test and define the programme.
Aviva Generations – Mid-life MOT
Today, our MOT is helping boost awareness of how and where our people can get more support on these issues and build their confidence to make more informed decisions.
As a result of its success, we have already trialled the programme with five companies where we provide their workplace pension and plan to offer this to more employers in the future.
Avivability - Business Disability Forum Accreditation
The Business Disability Forum (BDF) exists to remove barriers for disabled people in business structures and government to create a disability-smart world. In 2022, the BDF awarded us with a silver accreditation in their Disability Smart Audit.
