IAG took home the Excellence in Workplace Diversity and Inclusion award and General Insurance Claims team of the Year accolade at the 10th New Zealand Insurance Industry (ANZIIF) Awards.

Louise Harvey-Wills, executive general manager of business partnering at IAG, said diversity, inclusion and belonging were fundamental to the company’s purpose.

 “We know that when different voices are embraced and included, we create meaningful workplaces, higher performing organisations, and an equitable society.”

“We’re absolutely delighted to receive this acknowledgement of the exceptional environment we’ve created for our people.”

The Excellence in Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Award recognised organisational excellence and achievement in diversity and inclusion in the workplace and the wider NZ insurance industry.

Executive general manager of claims Wayne Tippet added: “I’m so proud of what the claims team has achieved, and this industry recognition as General Insurance Claims team of the year is the icing on the cake.”

“It recognises the commitment and dedication of our people, who consistently deliver excellence - including during the significant weather events New Zealand has endured - and the outstanding mahi the team delivers to look after our customers every day.”

The General Insurance Claims Team of the Year category was introduced at the ANZIIF awards for the first time this year and recognised claims teams that demonstrated excellent technical skills, strong claims results and outstanding customer service during 2021.
