A message from our Chief Executive Officer
COVID-19 has been a tragedy for public health and caused significant disruption to peoples’ lives and the global economy. I am immensely proud of how our Aviva colleagues responded to the COVID-19 challenge. We moved quickly to expand our remote working capability enabling our colleagues on the front line to maintain strong levels of service for individual and commercial customers throughout the period of restricted movement. Aviva has also played a significant role in helping the community, contributing more than £40 million to support businesses and health services and providing significant additional relief and assistance to customers experiencing financial hardship.
The pandemic shocked us into a different way of working. We’ve had to find new ways of doing things, including in the way we work. As a result, we’ve learned a lot about ourselves.
In this short film, our people talk about how coronavirus has affected their ways of working.
