Authored by Aviva

We are proud to have been named in the 2021 Times Top 50 Employers for Women, compiled by gender equality experts at Business in the Community.

This recognises the work we're doing to promote gender balance and inclusion in the workplace. We’re committed to address barriers to gender balance and make sure we retain talented women at Aviva and support their progression.

Commenting on this recognition, Chief People Officer, Danny Harmer, said: "It’s a fantastic achievement to be named again in the Times Top 50 Employers for Women. 

"This recognises the great work we’re doing to retain, and support the progression of, our talented women.

“During the pandemic, carers who are more likely to be women have taken on even more additional responsibilities in lockdown alongside their paid work. We know this can impact wellbeing and potentially career progression as well. 

“It makes our policies, such as Aviva’s ground-breaking approach to parental leave, even more important. But there is still a lot we can do and this remains at the top of our agenda.”

Charlotte Woodworth, Gender Equality Director at Business in the Community, said: “COVID-19 has shone a light on how far we have to go on gender equality: by having to pick up things like the bulk of extra caring responsibilities, women have been disproportionately affected by lockdown.

"We congratulate the many employers who have maintained their efforts towards gender equality at this time, often introducing innovative policies to support their workforce during this period. 

"This year’s application process for The Times Top 50 Employers for Women was the most competitive one we have seen in five years. Employers like Aviva haven’t forgotten women at work and they are committed to making gender inequality a thing of the past.”
