Meet our people from around the world
From Norwich to Nova Scotia, over 28,000 (as at 31 December 2020) people work for Aviva. We asked just a few of them to share their reflections on how we lived up to our purpose – With you today, for a better tomorrow – in 2020. In this short film, you’ll hear about some of the amazing things we achieved together in what was an extraordinary year.
Our values: care, commitment, community, and confidence shape our culture too. A culture which encourages innovation, experimentation and learning in order to deliver for our customers.
If we all take pride in Aviva's values, we'll all be working together towards the same goals - collaboration makes for a much stronger team. Each year we carry out an all-employee global survey. We ask our people to tell us where we're strong and where we need to improve.
Diversity and inclusion
We believe everyone at Aviva should be able to be themselves.
Creating a diverse, inclusive organisation is a fundamental part of living up to our purpose of being with you today, for a better tomorrow. It means being there for all our people, serving all our customers well, and helping to contribute to fairer, more equal communities.

Our people strategy
Our People strategy has been refreshed in line with our evolving business strategy and has the following aims:
- Drive a step change in accountability and a more balanced performance culture with the customer at the heart of what we do.
- Upskilling and reskilling our people around the capabilities required now and in the long-term.
- Risk management embedded in every employee’s role and responsibilities.
- Clearly defined behaviours for all our people aligned to our values that run through all our people interventions.
Equal paid parental leave for Aviva employees
We give our people in the UK, Ireland, France, Canada and Italy equal paid parental leave. Regardless of your gender, sexual orientation or how you become a parent – birth, adoption or surrogacy – you’re entitled to the same amount of paid and unpaid time off. We’re working to extend this benefit to all our people.
Since we launched it in 2017, we’ve learnt a lot. Watch our video to find out more and see the impact it’s had for some of our people:
All our people can take three days paid volunteering leave every year. It’s one of the ways we live up to our purpose to be with you today, for a better tomorrow.
