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 global people strategy sets out how we will accelerate our performance from the inside out. We will:
- Help our people to connect their work to our purpose and to our customers.
- Recruit, retain and develop the very best people, focusing especially on the fundamentals of insurance.
- Make our leaders accountable and empower them and their teams to act in line with our values, with an increased focus on performance.
- Embed inclusion throughout the business, making Aviva a place where everyone can be themselves.
Equal paid parental leave for Aviva employees
We give our people in the UK, Ireland, France, Singapore, 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:
