A different kind of business

We are owned by a charity and our purpose is to contribute to the greater good of society. We grant a significant proportion of our profits to our charitable owner Allchurches Trust, which in turn invests them independently into the heart of communities.  
 
Every day you work with us, you are helping to change people's lives for the better.  

Our people

We foster an open and responsible culture. We have made progress in a number of areas to support our employees, develop talent at all levels, encourage diversity and provide a positive and engaging working environment.

We celebrate our diversity, believe in ‘diversity every day’ and are challenging ourselves to improve our position. 

We consider human rights risks to our business. This has led us to reaffirm our Living Wage status across our group and publish our Modern Slavery Act statement.

Doing the right thing

Some of our key achievements include:
 
  • retaining our Chartered Insurer status in the UK and Ireland – we are one of fewer than 30 insurers to achieve this in the UK and we were the first insurer to achieve this in Ireland   
  • launching a new General Insurance Academy to develop our talent  

Committed to doing more

Our Group in the UK is proud to be one of the founding signatories to the Women in Finance Charter and have set ourselves the target that by 2020 women will make up at least 30% of our senior management group. We published our Gender Pay Gap Report ahead of the required deadline.

Our community

We’re proud to be doing things differently - to be giving back to the communities we serve and championing the issues that really matter to them. This year’s Impact Report focuses on the theme of Positive Impact, with each of the beneficiaries sharing their experiences. These stories powerfully demonstrate how our support has helped to change their lives for the better. Together we are building a movement for good.  

We make a difference in three key ways

  1. Being a different kind of business – delivering profits to charity.
  2. Focusing on key social issues important to our customers and partners.  
  3. Enabling our people and partners to give to causes close to them.  

Employee-led giving

Our employees lead the way in our movement for good and we are 100% behind anything they do for charity. 
 
As part of our MyGiving scheme, each employee has access to a personal grant of €175. The grant can be given to a charity of their choice and we double the amount if it’s a charity they have volunteered for. We also match 100% of what our employees fundraise.
