Our people matter

We want our colleagues to directly reflect the demographic of our society

Our people are our greatest asset, and we want Aegon to be a place where they can bring their authentic self to work and do all they can to deliver on our strategic promises to our customers. 


We have an expansive inclusion and diversity agenda driven right from the very top of the organisation. We’re proud signatories to the Women in Finance Charter and the Race at Work Charter.

We offer a fair, transparent, equitable and competitive remuneration package, linked to performance. In 2021 we were formally recognised as a Living Wage Employer.

We enable our people to reach their full potential. We make sure everyone has the support they need to flourish in their role and the opportunity to develop their career. 

We provide colleagues support with their physical, mental and financial wellbeing, through a wide range of events, activities and resources.

We encourage all of our 2,000 employees1 to express their views, opinions, and suggestions. 

We conduct yearly feedback surveys, and from this we know that we have a highly engaged and committed workforce. We regularly check the pulse of our business on subjects including:

  • Company culture
  • Development
  • Our leaders
  • Customer advocacy

We use the results to discuss and agree the actions we need to take – as a business and in our local teams – to invest in and develop our people so that everyone can be their best.
