We are on a mission…
Employees are at the heart of everything that we do at GoCo Group, which is why investing in them is of great importance to us. Our people are fundamental in driving the business forward with their unique skills and passion, helping us to differentiate ourselves from our competition, as well as dictating the tone, pace, success and essence of our company.
We aim for our employees, and the way that they are organised, to be a competitive advantage for GoCo Group. It’s important that they reflect the population as a whole, so we can garner as many different points of view and experiences as possible, to better understand and serve our customers.
Inclusion and diversity increases creativity, delivers innovation, improves performance and better serves our customers. We firmly believe in the ethos that companies with greater diversity perform better than those that don’t.
We believe passionately in the importance of workplace diversity. Different backgrounds, experiences and mindsets make for a productive, varied and effective workforce – not only is encouraging and supporting diversity the right thing to do, it makes good business sense.
National Inclusion Week
We hosted a virtual talk and Q&A with D&I expert Sonya Barlow which saw over 100 GoCoers discussing issues of diversity and inclusion. A key part of our education for staff.
2020 International Women’s Day
The 2020 International Women’s Day theme was #eachforequal and we were delighted to be able to film just a handful of our empowering women and GoCompare CEO, Lee Griffin
As a Group, inclusion and diversity is built in to our DNA. We continually apply a lens of diversity and inclusion to all our people related activity and decisions to ensure our people and their uniqueness have an environment and framework within which they can flourish and be their authentic self. It is important to us that different genders performing a role of equal value are paid in a comparable way and we regularly complete equal pay reviews to ensure that equal pay is never a question we have to ask ourselves. We continue to review our practices to ensure that they remain inclusive and promote diversity across the Group. We are confident that some of our ongoing activity will have positive impacts on reports in future years.Alex Currie VP of People and Talent, GoCo Group
