Survey launched to gauge diversity progress, COVID impacts

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google

The industry has launched an online survey to assess the progress in advancing diversity and inclusion in the workplace ahead of next month’s Dive In Festival, an annual event pushing for changes in corporate culture and practices in insurance.

Survey participants will also be asked about the impacts of the pandemic on their wellbeing.

The project is backed by Liberty Specialty Markets, Sura, Wotton + Kearney and the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF).

The findings will be shared on September 23 at a Dive In event sponsored by the survey’s backers.

“The survey is about trying to find out some of the common things out there that are happening,” ANZIIF GM Industry Engagement Damian Falkingham told insuranceNEWS.com.au today.

“It’s to get a consensus across industry of what is working, what is not working and what [employers] are doing to make sure staff are supported and have the right infrastructure to work from home.”

He urged everyone within the industry, including non-ANZIIF members, to take part in the survey.

Sura MD Angie Zissis says the survey is an important initiative that will help the industry understand better the challenges facing employees.
