About us

Progress through diversity

Reinforcing a purpose-driven organisation

Succeeding through inclusion

At the heart of AXA are the people who make it all possible. Across the world, more than 110,000 employees share the same passion to live our purpose – to act for human progress by protecting what matters.​

It’s our 2023 ambition to place AXA amongst the most inspiring companies to work for and to become an even more inclusive and diverse company to reflect the diversity of our customers​ and society.

A diverse workforce and inclusive culture are crucial to our long-term success. That is because, in our experience, teams with diversity better understand and relate to our equally diverse customer’s needs. Likewise, diversity of thought, opinion and experience helps us make better decisions and be more innovative to respond to the changing world around us, while an inclusive work environment attracts high-quality people and makes us a better place to work for everyone.

We are a global team with a huge range of different backgrounds, ways of thinking and varied experiences. We believe it is when you feel at your best that you can do your best.

 At AXA, we take a broad approach to diversity.  We have defined our areas of priority in the next years as: gender, LGBTQ+, disability, multi-generations, origins and mental health, always recognizing our people’s lived experiences, maybe one or more of these factors, or indeed other personal characteristics. Our I&D ambition is defined and deployed across the Group and reinforced through recruitment, learning and development and talent management policies and processes coordinated by a global community of Human Resources professionals.

AXA's workforce has a generational diversity made up of 19.7% of employees with 30 years old or less, 31.5% between 31 and 40 years old, 25.3% between 41 and 50 years old and 23.5% with 51 years old and more with a presence in 51 countries, of which 20 in Europe, 14 in Asia-Pacific, 9 in Americas and 8 in Africa.
