Bupa makes top 10 for Women in Leadership
FTSE Women Leaders Review 2024


Female representation at board level across the UK’s largest companies is on the up according to the latest FTSE Women Leaders Review. The representation of women on the combined Executive Committees and Direct Reports to Executive Committees in FTSE 100 companies has increased to 35.2%, up from 34.3% last year.

We’re thrilled that we're one of the top 10 performers this year for Women in Leadership, by the FTSE Women Leaders Review, who focus on increasing the representation of women on Boards and Leadership Teams.

Throughout 2024, we will continue to shape how we work together as a business as part of our commitment to being an inclusive organisation and a great place to work.

“We’re always looking for opportunities to bring in alternative perspectives and fresh thinking into the way we work and make decisions.” Carlos Jaureguizar, CEO for BGIUK.

Our ‘Women taking the Lead’ committee offers Bupa employees an opportunity to join a vibrant and inclusive community that empowers women across the business. The committee strives to foster connections, provide support, and promote personal & professional growth. With over 350 members they are tackling day-to-day challenges women face such as lack of confidence, lack of self-belief, and imposter syndrome. 

One of our key priorities at Bupa is to better understand the individual strengths and potential of our people through data and insights. This will inform tailored development planning and help build a strong pipeline of internal talent. Three months ago we partnered with Korn Ferry to launch our global programme ‘GM Insight into Action’. Korn Ferry offers global expertise and thought leadership in executive leadership development. The programme has 21 female employees taking part globally and will provide valuable insights into strengths and development areas required for this critical group. This information will inform ongoing development planning and help to better understand the potential to transition to a General Manager role in the future.‚Äč

Inspiring inclusion for Women in the workplace comes in many forms. We introduced our period plan at the start of February which included free period products to offices and sites. This initiative follows the success of our Menopause plan launched in 2021 which is available to all UK-based employees (circa 15,000 people) with well over 500 people engaging with the benefits of the plan.

We also provide support for managers when it comes to learning, guidelines, and processes that cover leave, sickness, risk assessment, and policy to ensure managers are equipped for life events like menopause.
