CovÃ©a Insurance has announced it has signed up to the Women in Finance Charter.
The Charter is a commitment by HM Treasury and signatory organisations, to work together to build a more balanced and fair industry.
CovÃ©a Insurance says they are committed to developing a strong diversity and inclusion programme, ensuring its workplace is accessible and inclusive for all. The insurer has considered the practices the company can adopt to ensure career opportunities are equally accessible across gender; greater access to flexible working is high on the company's list of priorities to ensure its employees can balance their career and achieve a positive work-life balance.
They are also developing new initiatives such as their Inspire Leading Women programme. James Reader, CEO, CovÃ©a Insurance commented: "CovÃ©a Insurance is proud to support HM Treasury's Women in Finance Charter. Becoming a signatory reflects our desire to employ women and men in equal numbers, at all levels in our organisation. The Charter is a great mechanism for keeping diversity and inclusion on the Boardroom agenda, to ensure we offer a working environment that is attractive, challenging and supportive for all."
