Meet our people from around the world

Around 30,000 people work for Aviva in the UK, across Europe, Asia and North America.  We spoke to just a few of them and asked what’s the best thing about working for Aviva, what makes our people proud to work here, and how are we making tomorrow stronger?

Our values: never rest, kill complexity, care more, and create legacy 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.

The change in culture has been profound. It’s exciting to watch how not only do we look after our customers, but we look after the individuals that work here too.
Neil Dodd, UK Aviva Employee

Our people strategy

Our global people strategy sets out how we will accelerate our performance from the inside out. We will:

  • Focus on our customers by connecting the day-to-day activities of our people with our purpose.
  • Give our people the freedom to act in line with our values.
  • Make leadership a way of life so all our people contribute to delivering our strategy and think independently. We want leaders who dream big and move fast in everything they do.
  • Create an inclusive and diverse environment so that everyone can be themselves.
  • Actively invest in the skills, mind-sets and future capabilities we need to win in a digital age.

Equal paid parental leave for Aviva employees

We give our people in the UK, Ireland, France, Singapore and Canada equal paid parental leave. Whatever 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 globally within the next year.

Inclusive diversity

Diversity is simply a reflection of society in whichever markets you operate in. Inclusion is how you choose to harness diverse perspectives to produce the best results. Talented people doing great work for customers is central to the success of Aviva.
Jan Gooding, Global Inclusion Director

87% of our people feel that people from diverse backgrounds can succeed at Aviva. We believe high-performing teams value the power of difference. Drawing from the widest pool of perspectives helps us deliver the best for our customers. 

Inclusive diversity runs through everything we do. From helping our global customers, to attracting and developing our people, to how we run our business and measure success. Inclusive diversity is important to us.

We’re working on it together, and with brilliant partners. We’re thinking differently. We’re becoming more inclusive and diverse all the time.  

   

Inclusive diversity is at the heart of how we do business. If people can be themselves, they'll be happier and contribute their best thinking. 
Mark Wilson., Group CEO
