This is us
Diversity and Inclusion is a vital ingredient for us at Direct Line Group. It enables us to build a workplace where we value, respect and embrace different ideas and opinions and allows us to make better decisions.

As one of the largest insurers in the UK we are committed to promoting diversity across the business. We believe that if people feel empowered to speak out, feel valued and are respected irrespective of their racial or ethnic origin, gender, age, disability, religion, belief or sexual orientation, then they can and will bring all of themselves to work.
To celebrate our diversity, we have developed a series of films featuring people from around the business – focused on what makes everyone unique and special at Direct Line Group. In the film, we follow a few of our colleagues, all doing the things that make them – well, them!
First off, we speak to Eric. He works in Information Security and is a grandad who volunteers at local schools and in communities in his spare time. Eric had a kidney transplant nine years ago and here tells us what makes him unique and special and why he still enjoys coming to work each day.
