Bupa - Champion of Gender Diversity

Bupa is a leading international healthcare group, offering personal and company-financed health insurance, run hospitals, and provide workplace health services, home healthcare, health assessments and chronic disease management services.  We are also a major international provider of nursing and residential care for elderly people.

With no shareholders, we invest our profits to provide more and better healthcare and fulfil our purpose – longer, healthier, happier lives.

Bupa employs more than 62,000 people, principally in the UK, Australia, Spain, Poland, New Zealand and the USA, as well as Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, India, Thailand, China and across Latin America.

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity is essential to Bupa’s ability to deliver extraordinary business performance in service of our purpose.  With 13 million customers in more than 190 countries, we recognise the benefit of a diverse workforce in enabling us to better understand and meet the needs of our broad customer base.

We also know that the best thinking is done and decisions are made when a diversity of thought, experience and leadership styles come together.   The Bupa Executive Team is diverse in terms of nationality, international experience, leadership style and gender.  38% of the team is female. 

Bupa is committed to creating an inclusive environment, where all of our people can grow to reach their full potential.  ‘Talent’ at Bupa means everyone is focused on leadership capability and competence, based on a deep understanding of our people.  Our talent processes encourage and enable leaders to know themselves and define their own careers, based on their motivations, hopes and dreams.   Where we identify barriers to growth, we do our best to remove them.

Our diversity efforts have been recognised in countries such as Bupa Arabia, where we won an award for being the best place to work in Saudi Arabia for women. The Saudi Minister of Labour cited Bupa as an exemplar for recruiting and developing Saudi national women.
