October - Black History Month
Respected, valued and accepted. These three words capture how we like every Brit employee to feel at work.
Our culture is one where you can be yourself. We think that if you bring your authentic self to work, then you will thrive, and we will too. Building a diverse and inclusive culture doesn’t happen overnight though. It’s a journey that our people are part of.
Take our People Forum for example. Employees can contribute to topics like race, identity, sexual orientation, belonging, disability and mental wellbeing. We encourage our people to meet across teams, share personal stories and understand different perspectives. It puts our people at the heart of shaping our inclusive workplace. Supporting diversity initiatives such as Pride are part of our way of life here and we already have much to be proud of. Our Gender Pay Gap is similar to our peers and we actively look at ways to improve. Our aspiration is to encourage everyone at Brit to be conscious advocates of inclusion and diversity. It is a very real business priority of ours. Together we will make this happen.
In 2020 Brit announced their partnership with the African Caribbean Insurance Network (ACIN) to focus on improving ethnic representation across the London insurance market. Please click here to read the full press release.
Four pillars which represent our vision for I&D at Brit:
- Our colleagues consider us to be a progressive organisation which demonstrates its commitment to inclusion and diversity both across the business and in our sector.
- We have a robust recruitment process to ensure we attract and recruit the best talent from a diverse talent pool and we make sure candidates are given an equitable playing field regardless of their identity or characteristic.
- We are an organisation that accepts, recognises, encourages, celebrates and promotes diversity in all its forms and adopts a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of discriminatory and non-inclusive behaviour.
- Our leadership and management populations act as role models and allies, actively raising awareness, challenging prejudice and demonstrating best practice approach regarding inclusion and diversity at Brit.
You can do so much more than work when you come to work at Brit; we encourage you to network and socialise, and to give to others through volunteering and charity endeavours.
If you’re a graduate wanting to take your first steps into business or an experienced professional looking for your next challenge, we hope you find Brit an inspiring place to work.
