Our strategy

Our vision is a world where insurance is personal, inclusive and a force for good. So, we help people carry on with their lives, giving them peace of mind now and in the future. Because that’s how we believe our business will thrive in the changing world ahead.

Our strategic objectives aim to ensure that we build technological and organisational capability to continue providing products which meet our customers’ changing needs and are available through multiple channels, to continue providing outstanding customer service and value for money, to create value for our investors, to support our communities and to protect the environment.

Through our five-pillar sustainability strategy, we aim to deliver long-term sustainability for customers, our people and shareholders and other stakeholders and ensure that we have a positive impact on society and protect the environment.

Underpinning our strategy are some deeply embedded and fundamental principles which are central to the long-term sustainability of the business. Our values are at the heart of how we do business day-to-day and we encourage a culture that celebrates difference and empowers people to be the best they can.

Take ownership

Own our success by getting things done. Take the initiative and be accountable. Be curious and own your development and performance.

Challenge drives progress. Your input matters so have the courage to say what you think and the patience to listen to others. Keep it simple and customer focussed.

Work together

Nobody has all the answers. Collaborate and draw upon the diverse skills across our business. Trust each other and focus on customer outcomes to beat our competitors.

Bring all of yourself to work

Diversity delivers better outcomes. Be the real you and celebrate difference. Respect others, have fun and make this a great place to be.

 

Our strategy aims for a  triple win: 

  • A win for DLG and those invested in its success - our shareholders and our people.
  • A win for the customer in the creation of true value.
  • And a win for society and the planet as we know our long-term success is intrinsically linked with the success of the community and environment around us.
