W+K sponsors insurance industry survey on inclusion and COVID-19 work from home impacts

Wotton + Kearney is again joining forces with ANZIIF, SURA and Liberty Specialty Markets to investigate how experiences of workplace inclusion are affecting the insurance industry.

In 2019 we surveyed the industry on how inclusion is experienced by diverse people working in the insurance and risk industry. The findings in our Deep Dive on Inclusion 2019 Report showed that men, older people, leaders, and people who can do some or all of their work remotely feel a stronger sense of inclusion than others. This year we will revisit these themes to assess change over time, and also extend the survey to explore how COVID-19 has impacted our experiences of inclusion at work.

With COVID-19, most countries around the world have experienced some degree of lockdown and enforced social isolation, and vast numbers of employees have experienced a radical shift in the way they work. For many of us, these remain ongoing challenges.

One of Australia’s leading inclusion experts, Dr Jennifer Whelan, Director of Psynapse Psychometrics, has again been commissioned to conduct this year’s research via an anonymous survey. Dr Whelan’s research will help to shine a light on this industry wide issue and identify areas we can all improve.

W+K is delighted to again sponsor this important initiative and invite those in the Australasian insurance sector to provide your input by completing the short survey via the link below.
