In May 2016, AXA asked its employees around the world, “What does ‘At AXA, I can be me’ mean to you?’” The answers received were just as diverse as the people who gave them. They ranged from “At AXA, I can wear a tie – or not, if I want” to “I feel valued and respected for who I am.” All of the responses have been incorporated into a video celebrating AXA’s commitment to diversity:
The testimonials have even inspired people outside of AXA. The startup company Happiness Watchers specializes in making dreams come true. What Florent, age 27, dreamed of doing was to paint a work of art with Les Jeanclode. So for two days, Les Jeanclode, Happiness Watchers and Florent worked at the AXA Group’s headquarters in Paris to create two 1.75 x 3.5 meter panels illustrating the employees’ testimonials and to paint the symbol of workplace diversity at AXA.
