Hippo pledges to help eliminate the diversity gap in the UK tech workforce


It is with great pleasure that we share the news of Hippo’s recent commitment to the Tech Talent Charter (TTC) – an employer-led initiative aimed at promoting diversity and inclusion in the UK’s tech industry.

At Hippo, we recognise that diversity fuels creativity and innovation, and we are dedicated to creating a workplace that fosters a culture of inclusivity. By joining the TTC, we are taking a significant step towards ensuring that our team is diverse and representative of the wider community and that we are supporting others in our industry to do the same.

We firmly believe that diversity isn’t just a buzzword but a crucial aspect of driving progress and success. By collaborating with other companies and sharing best practices, we can learn from one another and create a more equitable and inclusive tech workforce together.

We hold ourselves accountable to our staff and contemporaries by committing to measurable goals and regularly reviewing our progress. We are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead and look forward to being part of the solution to creating a more diverse and inclusive tech industry.


Helen Croft, Head of People Operations and Development at Hippo said 

“At Hippo, we wholeheartedly believe that a diverse and inclusive workplace is not only the right thing to do, but it also fosters innovation, creativity, and success. As a proud signatory of the Tech Talent Charter, we are committed to driving positive change both within our organisation and in the wider industry.

Being part of this incredible community allows us to collaborate with other like-minded organisations and share our experiences and learnings. By doing so, we can collectively strengthen our efforts to create a more diverse and inclusive tech sector. We recognise that there is always room for improvement and that we must hold ourselves accountable for the commitments we make.

At Hippo, we are committed to cultivating an environment that promotes inclusivity and embraces diversity. We are proud to stand alongside our fellow signatories and celebrate their successes while also learning from their good practices..”
