Diversity and Inclusion
Improving diversity and inclusion at Zurich is one of the key priorities for me and my Executive Team. We all have personal targets to attract, retain and promote a diverse workforce. We are doing this because we believe that improving diversity and inclusion is critical to our business performance. It enables us to attract and retain the best talent, reduces risk, improves decision making and delivers more innovative solutions for our customers. But we also do it because it is simply the right thing to do. We are also working hard to ensure that we are an inclusive organisation, spearheading the industry’s Inclusive Behaviours Pledge and rolling out a new ‘Dignity@Work’ approach for our employees to ensure they are clear on their rights and responsibilities when it comes to inclusion. We acknowledge that we have more work to do but we believe that the interventions we have adopted are market-leading, and will result in improved diversity at all levels.
