Afternoon Panel Session: Building the workforce of the future: are you ready?

In a year of many challenges and changes for our sector, now - more than ever - it is vital that the insurance and long-term savings industry has a workforce that is diverse, inclusive, and fit for the future. We need to act now so that our sector can attract, include, progress and retain the widest possible talent pool and better reflect the customers we serve.
To be a great employer, we must ensure that we are leading the way in diversity and inclusion, improving ethnic and socio-economic diversity, reducing the gender seniority gap, supporting our employees’ mental health, and championing flexible working. We have the potential to be a sector where people can truly thrive, bring their whole selves to work, and establish long, fruitful careers. This is the right thing to do, for both employers and the industry. With greater diversity also comes greater innovation and productivity – and we cannot afford to be left behind. 

This panel will debate the actions that are urgently needed to ensure that we are the sector of choice for candidates and that we are doing everything we can to include and progress diverse talent. Campaigns like Making Flexible Work are just the start – we have a long way to go and not much time to get there.

Join us for this insightful discussion on what that journey could look like for you and others across the industry.
