Diversity Analytics

The Diversity Analytics Working Party was formed in 2017 and was set up to ask the question –‘What will the insurance industry workforce look like in 10-20 years? How will it develop and will it be fit for purpose?’ With the hypothesis that there is a lack of diversity in the insurance sector, the working party carries out research and analytical work to look at the current position and project the future position. They will highlight any areas that are under-represented with the overarching concern that this may impact the performance of the insurance sector.

Key Objectives:

  • Identify the true drivers of diversity pay-gaps and performance gaps
  • Examine how diverse the Insurance workforce is now and what will it bel like in 30 years’ time
  • Assess whether performance is better for more diverse companies
  • Understand who worked this trend out early and how did it impact their performance
  • Investigate if different levels of diversity are expected within different sized companies
