Rewards and benefits

Going beyond recognition

Rewarding our people

We provide all our employees with a range of rewards and benefits to make sure they know how much we appreciate everything they do. We also support our people and communities with other meaningful initiatives. Find out more below.

Our rewards and benefits


At AXA we provide a wide range of core and voluntary benefits that support you and your family. These enable you to lead the life that you want and protect what's important to you. We want to do everything we can to look after you. We offer these rewards and benefits to make sure you know how much we appreciate what you do, from virtual wellbeing activities to pension contributions. We want to help everyone at AXA look after what matters to them. We have a variety of benefits for every person who works here. These include bonus schemes and holiday allowance, life cover, pension and sick pay. And to help you lead the life you want to we have a selection of voluntary benefits to choose from, such as holiday trading, Cycle to Work scheme, health assessments and discounted products. Our Shareplan scheme allows you to be part of AXA's success by becoming a shareholder. 

You can also enjoy savings on things like retail vouchers, cinema tickets and experiences through our discounts and cashback scheme. That's because we believe there's more to life than work. So whether it's taking that break away, spending more time with the kids or being active, you can take the time out you need to relax and enjoy yourself. And when someone's gone above and beyond, we reward each other's contributions, for example, with vouchers through our recognition scheme. 

We want to help you be happy and healthy, which is where My Wellbeing, our employee wellbeing programme comes in. To make it easier to understand how we can support you and see what's available, My Wellbeing is made up of four pillars: physical, mental, financial and social. My physical wellbeing doesn't mean spending hours in the gym. We all know that small changes can make a difference. We're committed to supporting you and helping you build healthy habits for life. That's why we make sure you have access to health checks, eye tests, and we promote physical activity by offering you discounts on gym and fitness products. Life can throw all sorts of challenges at us. And my mental wellbeing is about building your resilience and making sure the support you need is available to you. 

We have a dedicated mental health tool to support your mental wellbeing. Financial wellbeing is hugely important. 

It offers you a sense of security and grounding My Financial Wellbeing can help you take the small steps you need to take control of your finances. For example, our financial education tool can help you with this. Connecting with others helps us manage stress and become healthier inside and outside work, even live longer. Giving can also make us feel good, whether that's giving our time or supporting a fundraiser. There's plenty to get involved in to boost your social wellbeing. 

As well as looking after our customers and our people, we have a responsibility to care for the environment and the communities that we're part of. We're committed to limiting climate change and support, volunteer charity and other community efforts. 

Contributing to a healthier, inclusive and more sustainable future is in everything we do. With a happy and engaged workforce we can strive together to be the best that we can be for our customers.

Pay and Bonus

Everyone wants to get paid fairly for what they do. That's why we carefully consider our pay levels and carry out a review each year.

When AXA does well, we share in its success and paying a bonus is one way of saying thanks. All employees are eligible for a discretionary bonus payment each year, dependant on individual and company performance.

Pension and Life Cover

We want to help you make plans and feel secure about your future, so we offer you a Defined Contribution Pension Scheme. We'll also pay generous contributions into your fund depending on the amount you choose to pay in. Click here to find out more about our pension scheme.


We value our time away from work as an important part of work-life balance. AXA holiday entitlements start at a minimum of 23 days (plus bank holidays) dependent on role, increasing up to 28 days (plus bank holidays) with length of service. There is also flexibility to buy up to five additional days or sell up to three days, helping everyone to achieve the right balance for them.


We believe in recognising and rewarding you when you demonstrate the behaviours that make AXA great. Our AXA Stars scheme is set up so that we can send a quick eCard to say thank you and or nominate a colleague for an AXA Star cash award!


Employees are also invited to take part in the annual share plan. Employees can buy shares and also be offered an interest free loan to purchase shares if they don’t want to purchase outright.

Additional benefits

Depending on your role, you may be entitled to additional benefits such as Private Medical Insurance, Company Car or Long Term Incentive Plans.
