The long-awaited Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers Index published on 01 December showcases leading organisations working to create an inclusive culture for all.

In recognition of their continued dedication to workplace diversity, Allianz Insurance has been ranked 26th in The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List 2021/22 – a definitive list of UK based organisations that promote inclusion across all protected characteristics, throughout each level of employment.

Now in its sixth year, the list has become the premier cross industry index harnessing best practice and innovation to drive inclusion for all. Announced through a virtual event, The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List has identified the most inclusive companies across the nation.

Organisations participating in the benchmark have provided sufficient evidence on an amalgamation of topics, designed to collate the most accurate and relevant data from employers regarding their inclusivity practices. An independent advisory panel of Diversity & Inclusion experts have reviewed and analysed each submission, determining the rankings of each participant.

“More employers have seen their people step forward to be heard and contribute to their inclusion agenda like never before, with inclusive leadership leading at the forefront and prompting employers to examine their shortcomings internally” said Founder and CEO, Paul Sesay. “Companies featured on this year’s list have felt the importance of ensuring individual voices are heard and standing up as responsible employers against inequality, injustice and intolerance.”

Nick Hobbs, chief distribution and regions officer, of Allianz Insurance and sponsor of Enrich, Allianz’s Multicultural Network said:

“Diversity and Inclusion are  important areas for Allianz. We strive to improve our employee experience, despite the headwinds that sometimes present themselves, and recognise the importance of D&I being embedded in what we do as part of that effort. Our executive sponsors and committed central teams are supported by our enthusiastic and knowledgeable employee-led networks that help us identify and remove barriers, support inclusion and drive change. It’s about enabling people to feel confident that they are in an environment where they can always give and show the very best of themselves.”

It is gratifying to not only to be recognised in the Top 50 ranking again but to have also moved from 29th to 26th, confirming Allianz as a great place to work.

Rozila Kana, Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers Judge & Equality & Diversity Officer at Lancashire Constabulary, said; “It is clear from recent global events that diversity and inclusion should be a business and operational imperative that will help public sector organisations progress further as we come out of the challenges of 2020 into a world; a world with a new normality that needs to nurture compassionate leadership, a sense of belonging for staff as well as cohesive and inclusive societies.  Inclusive Companies helps organisations create cultural transformation through a “hearts and mind” approach to increase social inclusion and empowerment with the intention of embedding DEI into everything they practice as an essential ingredient.”

D&I architect Toby Mildon, added; “It’s important to recognise all of the hard work that businesses are doing to create more inclusive workplaces and Inclusive Companies do a great job of sharing best practice through the Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List.”
