INCLUSION
Diverse voices from all walks of
life working together as one

Our commitment to our people

We passionately believe that different ways of thinking, backgrounds and experiences make us stronger and better as a business. And the more diverse we are, the better we can reflect, relate to and respond to the needs of our diverse customers.

When we say we embrace diversity, we’re not saying it to tick boxes. We’re saying it because we do it and because it makes us a better business. We continue to work hard to create one AXA where everyone feels that they truly belong. And because we’re all humans and should be granted equal rights and respect, we refuse to tolerate discrimination of any kind.

Embracing our diversity

Embracing our diversity

We’re hugely proud of the strong sense of community and pride within AXA Partners. We’ve worked hard, and continue to work hard, to build a diverse, inclusive organisation where every single employee knows that they can be their true self at work. We are focused on creating a workplace where everyone knows that their differences are embraced as a strength, and that they can flourish while feeling safe, valued and respected.

You make us stronger 

Great things happen when individuals from different backgrounds with different skill sets and perspectives work together. That’s why we encourage our people to make new connections and have new conversations. As well as regularly asking our people about their personal experience in the workplace, we encourage everyone to join one of our global Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). These are platforms to discuss views, share information, seek resources and support and serve as a think tank for the business. We also continue to shine a light on – and put our global weight behind – topics and campaigns that are important to us and our people.

Supporting disability and wellbeing

Supporting disability and wellbeing

We focus on ability rather than disability. To create a workplace that’s inclusive and accessible for people of all abilities, we’ll work with you to make sure that you feel comfortable in the workplace – and to make sure that you have everything you need to do your job brilliantly. 

We also run various local initiatives and provide access to tools and information to improve all aspects of your physical and mental wellbeing. We have a well-established AXA global employee assistance programme in place which offers independent and free support in managing both personal and professional challenges in their lives to enable your wellbeing.
