RGA fosters a company culture that is inclusive, collaborative, and compassionate.
At RGA, we believe in the power of an inclusive culture to fuel innovation, and we understand the importance of living the values we support through volunteerism and industry leadership.
A Strong Commitment to Inclusion: RGA's Human Rights Policy is guided by the United Nations and the International Labor Organization, as well as U.S. law. In addition, Anna Manning, RGA's chief executive officer, is a signatory to CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace.
An Emphasis on Integrity and Equity: RGA's public stances are supported by meaningful action. Half of the members of the RGA Board of Directors are women, placing RGA at the vanguard of the financial services sector. In fact, the 2020 Women on Boards organization has recognized RGA as a Winning “W” Company for leadership.
RGA also has long been committed to ensuring equal pay for equal work. To continue that commitment, in 2019, we initiated our second annual company-wide pay equity study conducted by a third-party consultant, which analyzed the pay practices of all U.S. employees and all our employees working at non-U.S. locations with more than 50 employees (representing 85% of RGA’s employees worldwide). Ensuring our compensation practices are equitable, regardless of gender or race, is imperative for our company’s culture and to ensure fair treatment of our employees.

A Culture of Supporting Community: RGA participates in charitable activities relevant to our business and linked to our mission, vision, and values, and employees regularly contribute to local, national, and regional non-profit organizations. A significant portion of those donations come from RGA's Matching Gift Program. As part of this program, RGA matches a significant portion of employee charitable donations.
We also encourage employee volunteerism, partnering with community service organizations to provide opportunities for employees to donate time and talents to assist neighbors in need. The RGA Global Volunteer Day program enables any employee to receive a day of pay while giving time to a charitable cause. RGA employees also regularly seek to advance the insurance industry by participating in a variety of volunteer roles at industry associations and in RGA programs, such as High School Actuary Day, which aim to promote insurance-related professions and encourage the study of science and mathematics.
