Progressive Insurance, United States
Diversity & inclusion at Progressive
Forward thinking, forward moving
Being Progressive means moving forward, promoting change, and constantly improving. We live up to our name, not just by being an innovator, but by embracing our different backgrounds, cultures, experiences, and ways of thinking.
We’re driven to always do better—for our customers, agents, and each other—while staying true to who we are.
We welcome disagreement
Our unique backgrounds and viewpoints mean we naturally have differing opinions. We see this as a good thing and have created programs to provoke substantive conversations. Our Courage at Our Core and Dare to Disagree workshops demonstrate our commitment to an open environment where we not only encourage, but we expect our people to share their opinions and perspectives. Our Employee Resource Groups also host Courageous Conversations, tackling topics related to bias and micro-inequities in the workplace.
We deepen the conversation
We go beyond simply providing unconscious bias training. We’re focused on intercultural competence and developing the skills to create an environment where employees and customers feel welcomed, valued and respected.
Our commitment to pay equity is straightforward—we demand it of ourselves. We’re proud to report that for Progressive employees with similar performance, experience, and job responsibilities, women earn one dollar for every dollar earned by men, and people of color earn one dollar for every dollar earned by their white coworkers.*
We recognize that our commitment to pay equity requires our constant attention and we take regular steps to ensure that our people’s compensation reflects their performance, experience, and job responsibilities, and nothing else. We’ll report our pay equity measures annually.
*In evaluating pay equity companywide, we use a regression model that considers the following components of compensation: annual salary, cash bonus (Gainsharing), and stock awards. These are point-in-time measures (as of January 2019) that include all Progressive employees other than our CEO and the executives reporting directly to her, whose compensation is approved by the Board’s Compensation Committee.
