Category Sponsor - Entrepreneur Award
Hyperion Insurance Group
Insurance has a diversity problem. There’s no arguing this. There’s also no arguing that companies with diverse workforces – providing diversity of thought – do better. The results show it. If our people do better, our clients do better, and the communities we work in do better. Sustainable business success is a by-product. Hyperion’s ambition is to be a great company, not just a great insurance group. We are the fifth largest company driven by employee ownership in the UK, after John Lewis, Mott McDonald, Arup and Unipart, and that means we occupy a genuinely different position in the wider business environment as well as in the insurance industry. The Group has always recognised that the greatest investment is the investment we make in people and, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary as a Group of 5,000 people operating in 36 territories around the world, we are stepping up that investment. We have achieved our current scale by delivering rapid growth, both organically and through acquisition. As a result of this, we know we have plenty of work to do to improve and we are taking small but important steps to do this. These steps include starting our partnership with Everywoman. We are extremely pleased to be able to partner with Max and the team at Everywoman to further Hyperion’s ambitions to support the advancement of women in our own business as well as to play our part in the advancement of women in the industry.
