Diversity and Inclusion in FBD

At FBD our diversity and inclusion objective is to foster and promote an inclusive and equal employment work environment for our employees and the customers we serve, promote a harassment and discrimination free workplace, investigate equal employment opportunity complaints and provide guidance, training and resources.

Our shared commitment to working towards a consciously inclusive workplace is key to creating an environment that fosters innovation, employee engagement, creativity and the collaboration required to be the insurance employer of choice. Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) continues to be an area of focus for FBD and we have worked hard in 2021 to roll out phase one of our three year strategy. Phase one of the strategy involved assessing our current environment through the D&I lens and introducing an awareness of the pillars of D&I.

Inclusio

In 2021, the D&I Committee led the role out of ‘Inclusio’ to all FBD employees, including Executive Management as part of our Inclusive Culture programme. Inclusio is an independent software tool, developed by DCU. Using Inclusio, employees had the opportunity to anonymously contribute and provide feedback on FBD’s culture and team inclusion. Employees could partake in learning, development and discussion forums about different pillars of D&I and also the working culture at FBD.

Irish Centre of Diversity

FBD partnered with the Irish Centre for Diversity and underwent a review of a number of our policies to ensure they were inclusive of all people regardless of any of the nine grounds for discrimination. We were awarded a Bronze rating under the Irish Centre for Diversity ‘Investors in Diversity’ Framework. We are in the process of gaining the silver accreditation for being Investors in Diversity for 2022.
