Our culture and values

Our culture

When you feel part of a unified, supportive team - when you work in an environment of fairness, inclusion and positivity - then we all achieve more. This is our ‘One Team’ philosophy; our belief that success lies in us all working together to invite greater diversity of experience, talent, and thinking into everything we do.

It’s this fresh thinking, this culture of collaboration, this sense of being stronger together, that helps us all to flourish personally and professionally.

Diversity and inclusion

We are an organisation that truly values people; our strength as a business comes from nurturing diversity of talent through a highly inclusive and collaborative culture. We know that in an industry with ‘all-too-similar individuals’, the more we welcome people from all sectors, countries, backgrounds, ages, disabilities, gender and skill sets, the better we will understand our client base - and make more robust investment decisions. To quote the Diversity Project, an initiative Aviva Investors is proud to champion, “it’s not optional, it’s essential”.

Our efforts across the Aviva Group in this area were recognised as early as 2007 at the United Nations’ World Diversity Leadership Summit, which honoured us with the Global Innovation award.

Get in touch

If you would like to know more about us as a company and as people, and how we are working to create an environment that is supportive, fair, diverse and rewarding - in every sense - then we would love to hear from you.

Our values

A culture of collaboration thrives when everyone feels aligned around a common set of values.

Ours provide the drive and direction behind our One Team philosophy: 

Care more

We genuinely care about our colleagues. We know your career progression is massively important to you, so we encourage, promote and offer support whenever and wherever you need it.

Create legacy

We encourage innovation and are always looking for short and long-term ways to make lasting change happen. We recognise that we have a social and environmental responsibility to uphold within the communities we invest and operate in.

Never rest

Nobody gets anywhere by sitting still. Here, we have an in-built desire to disrupt convention, to ask tough questions, to challenge what we do to see how we can improve it. We embrace brilliant ideas and welcome ways in which we can improve what we do both now and tomorrow.

Kill complexity

It’s a complicated world. We’re dealing with a multi-layered business looking after thousands of customers, over £351bn* assets and all across an ever-shifting global market. So we do everything we can to keep things clear and simple for us, and our customers.
