AXA global parental leave policy
Our parent policy enhances the solutions offered to new parents in all 64 of the countries in which we operate. Coming into effect on January 1, 2017, it entitles 16 weeks of paid leave for the primary parent – and four weeks of paid leave for the co-parent – while guaranteeing a return to an equivalent role with similar terms and conditions. We wholly believe in the benefits of having a diverse and inclusive workforce – a company where one can be both a parent and a professional, a company that trusts its employees and understands the importance of well-being in the workplace.
Creating an inclusive environment
Cultivating an environment in which everyone feels valued and recognised is really important to us. To help achieve this, we’ve created and launched a new digital Diversity and Inclusion training course. The training focuses on three areas: embracing diversity, unconscious bias – what it is and how to challenge it, the role you play.
The course highlights the benefits of having diverse teams and the role everyone can play in driving an inclusive culture. We firmly believe that a successful diversity and inclusion programme needs to emphasise the power of diverse teams within all areas of our business.
Flexible working hours
Employees with caring responsibilities, at all levels of the business can take advantage of flexible working. Our Ways of Working policy brings together all the different ways of working under one roof in a simple format. We know 9-5 doesn’t suit everyone and being able to balance home and work is key to an engaged workforce.
