Changing the Future Means Embracing Change
Building a diverse workforce and creating an inclusive culture is a moral imperative, a powerful business requirement and a top priority for The Hartford. While this isn’t new work for us, we recognize the need to do more to accelerate our progress. Doing more starts with being open and transparent about our results and where we’re advancing. That’s why we’re sharing our pay equity, workforce representation and EEO-1 data.
Committed To Improving Our Culture
We are dedicated to bettering our workplace. Our nine Employee Resource Groups are helping make that happen by emphasizing and connecting everyone to the differences within our workforce. Our ERGs encourage people to connect, engage, develop, grow and give back. Employees are empowered to weigh in on business opportunities, enable talent outcomes and build stronger relationships with one another – ultimately helping shape the workplace, marketplace and workforce.
Our Employee Resource Groups
External Partnerships That Pave the Way Forward
Our commitment to an inclusive culture includes the network we work with. We have external diversity partners that help us realize stronger relationships with key stakeholders, including talent and existing employees and business partners. Our relationships with them are a reflection of our commitment to diversity in our communities and in the insurance industry.
Extending Our Commitment Through Our Suppliers
Our supplier network includes businesses owned by women, people of color, veterans, people with disabilities and LGBTQ+ individuals. Because of that we’re able to realize more thoughtful and inclusive decision outcomes.
The Hartford’s Commitment to Human Rights
Respect for human rights is a fundamental part of The Hartford’s character and is core to our business. Doing the right thing and respecting the human rights of our employees, customers, stakeholders and those in our communities is embedded in our culture, policies, business systems and processes.
The frameworks provided by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights inform, influence and help shape ongoing improvements to business practices in our own operations, as well as those of our suppliers and business partners. We’re committed to advancing transparency in our work and increased disclosure and engagement in support of human rights.
We’re proud to have been recognized for our continued efforts by the Human Rights Campaign’s annual Corporate Equality Index for the 14th year and by being named a World's Most Ethical Company® 14 times by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.1
