At Aviva we embrace our responsibilities to the community.
Our purpose and values inspire and guide us to care more for our customers, communities and each other and think and act now for the long term to create legacy.
Aviva’s charity partner is Pieta House.
In December 2015 Aviva launched its charity partnership with Pieta House who provide a free therapeutic approach to people who are in suicidal distress and those who engage in self-harm. Pieta House was voted by Aviva Ireland employees to become their charity partner until January 2018.
Aviva shares with Pieta House a commitment to support communities affected by suicide across Ireland. In fulfilment of that commitment, Aviva pledges itself to the Vision, Mission and Values of Pieta House by providing financial support and by sharing our knowledge, skills and employee volunteering hours to support the work of Pieta House in the fight against suicide and self-harm in Ireland.
Through our combined efforts and resources we aim to reduce the emotional and economic cost of suicide and self-harm.
Together we can weave the themes of hope and health into the fabric of our communities.
Our People Making a Difference
Being a responsible business has always been important to Aviva – it’s a big part of who we are and what we do.
We want to make a difference that is relevant to the everyday lives of customers, our local communities and the social environmental challenges we all face.
To help strengthen the communities that we work in, we encourage our employees to contribute their time, skills and passion to their local communities and provide a bank of funds along with 21 hours paid volunteering leave each year.
Aviva encourages employees to support charities of their choice and provides a match funding scheme to match funds raised.
Not only is this support good for our communities, but it also helps us attract, engage and develop talented people. Its impact is shown in our “Voice of Aviva” survey results, where 80% of employees believe that Aviva is a good corporate citizen.
