BUPA INSURANCE LIMITED (“BINS” or “the Company”) BOARD DIVERSITY POLICY
The Company places great emphasis on the principle of diversity, including ethnic and gender diversity. Diversity throughout the Company makes great business sense, not least because it means that, as a private medical insurance company, BINS is better able to understand and meet customer needs if the Company reflects its customer base.
The Company’s policy is to ensure that there is broad experience and diversity on the Board. Diversity in the Company embraces knowledge and understanding of relevant geographies, peoples and their backgrounds including race, disability, gender, sexual orientation, religion, belief and age, as well as culture, personality and work-style. Diversity also includes a diversity of perspectives on what motivates and interests the Company’s existing and potential customers. In particular the Board is focused upon increasing Board diversity without compromising on the calibre of directors. The Company maintains that appointments to the Board should be based on merit as well as complementing and expanding the skills, knowledge and experience of the Board as a whole. Within this context the Board aspires to having an appropriate proportion of directors with different backgrounds, and may be non-UK nationals, of both genders, reflecting the Company’s business base.
The policy has the full support of the Chairman and the Board of Directors.
This policy was adopted by the Board on 4th April 2018.
