Diversity and Inclusion

At NFU Mutual we are committed to delivering our Diversity and Inclusion strategy to create a culture of inclusion that encourages and celebrates diversity, promotes inclusivity and supports our employees to thrive.

Our Diversity and Inclusion strategy

To create an environment of inclusion where people can bring their whole self to work and feel emotionally connected and able to fully contribute. By creating a culture of inclusion, we will get the best from all our people and will foster a culture where everyone feels fully valued and happy to be themselves.

To attract, develop and retain the best talent - by widening our talent pools and encouraging people from all backgrounds to apply, removing obstacles, we will ensure we have the widest selection of high quality and capable candidates. We will nurture and develop our talent, enabling everyone to achieve their full potential, and ensure we are a great place to work.

To help ensure better decision-making - diversity of thinking, experience and background supports independent contribution and challenge and increases the breadth and quality of debate, thus improving the overall effectiveness of decision-making and encouraging more creative and innovative solutions.

Our activity

As part of our commitment to Diversity and Inclusion, 2023 saw us maintain our affiliation with the Race at Work Charter, introduce two Employee Networking Groups, and develop and pilot a Reverse Mentoring programme focused on connecting leaders and diverse talent.

We also launched unconscious bias training at the end of 2022 and by the end of 2023, 98% of NFU Mutual employees had completed this training. Crucially, 2023 also saw us undertake a successful data collection exercise to understand the diverse nature of our workforce and we will use the outputs to inform our future Diversity and Inclusion activity.

Since 2018, NFU Mutual has been a signatory to the Women in Finance Charter. In 2023, we reported to HM Treasury that 40.6% of our senior management population were women, compared with 36% when we signed the Charter in 2018, delivering against our 2024 published target of 40%.
