Gender Pay Gap Report 2019Why do wehave a paygap at Royal& Sun AllianceInsurance plc?04Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance plc(as at 5th April 2019)ManagementGroupTeam Managers,senior technical& specialistsCustomeroperations,technical& businesssupport36%Our analysis shows that ourgender pay gaps are predominantlydriven by the shape of our workforce,in particular:1,24871%194 We have fewer women than menin senior management roles. Ourworkforce is predominantly female(56%, same as in 2017 and 2018)however there are fewer women inour Management Group roles (seebelow 29%). However, this hassteadily increased from 25% in2017 and 27% in 2018.58%845 Mean and median pay gaps have continued to improve. Thiscan be explained by more women in the upper pay quartile andless women in the lower pay quartile than in 2018. Mean and median bonus gap both worsened compared to 2018.However, 2018 was an ‘anomaly year’ due to the non-payment ofannual bonuses to UK Management Group Employees as 2017performance in the UK had fallen short of our targets. The significant increase in the median bonus gap can thereforebe explained by the Annual Bonus plan pay-outs to UK and GCCemployees in the 2019 reporting period. The Management Grouppopulation, who are eligible for larger bonuses, contains a highnumber of men. However, this figure has improved compared to2017 reported data.42%29%Understanding thepay and bonus gapcomparison between2019 and previous years: The increase in the mean bonus gap can be explained by theAnnual Bonus plan pay-outs and the increased vesting of PerformanceShare Plan awards in the 2019 reporting period. These were grantedto senior managers to reward performance over the longer term.The majority of the recipients were male, reflecting the seniormanagement group at the time the awards were made three yearsago. As we continue to increase the number of women in seniorleadership roles and apply a gender lens to remuneration decisions,we will expect this gap to reduce.61780 This is reflected in our pay quartiledata, where 38.3% of employeeswithin the highest paid quartileare female. Again, this is steadilyincreasing from 36.8% in 2017and 37.5% in 2018. As per previous years, a higher proportion of women than menreceived a bonus. Reported bonus pay also includes recognitionawards. Both proportions increased in this reporting period, whichcan be explained by the pay-out of bonus plans to UK ManagementGroup employees. There are more women than men inour junior roles, such as customeroperations, technical and businesssupport.64%WomenMen2,202

Gender Pay Gap Report 201905What actions are we taking toreduce the Gender Pay Gap at RSA?At RSA, our vision is to create an inclusiveworkplace where everyone can bringtheir best selves to work. We do this bybuilding diversity across all levels of ourorganisation and creating an inclusiveculture which attracts, encourages andis strengthened by diverse perspectives,establishing the best foundation to serveour customers. Because our GenderPay Gap is predominantly caused by theshape of our workforce, the actions weare taking to reduce the Gender Pay Gapare focused on increasing the number ofwomen in senior roles at RSA.In the last twelve months, we have madevery good progress in relation to the Diversityand Inclusion (D&I) agenda, particularlyin building an inclusive culture. We havemade excellent progress in relation toour external reporting commitments (theWomen in Finance Charter and HamptonAlexander Review), which both assess thegender diversity in our senior population.This is our key area of focus and there hasbeen a lot of attention on ensuring womenhave the opportunities and support toprogress to senior levels at RSA, alongsidegreater robustness and rigour in applying agender lens to our remuneration and peopleprocesses. The foundations of the rightactions and processes are now in place andare receiving careful scrutiny and review.However, these actions will take time toclose the Gender Pay Gap.Our Diversity and Inclusion Council providesgovernance for RSA’s D&I activity. The GroupCouncil reviews gender representationstatistics every quarter and overseesprogress in each region against RSA’s D&Istrategy.RSA signed HM Treasury’s ‘Womenin Finance Charter’ in 2017, throughwhich the Group was committedto achieving 33% representation ofwomen in Management Group globallyby 2020. As at 31st December,we had exceeded our target andachieved 34.6% of women in oursenior management population.RSA is committed to meeting therecommendations of the HamptonAlexander review by achieving the33% target for women on boardsand in leadership teams of FTSE350companies by 2020. Group-widegender data was last provided to theHampton Alexander Review in July2019. The proportion of women inour leadership team was 30.1% (asat 30th June 2019). Again, we havecontinued to make progress and ourlatest data (effective year end 2019) is35.9%. Female representation on ourGroup Board is 33.3%.We also ran a ‘RewritingTheRules’ postercampaign, designed to challenge the ‘rules’of how female strengths are perceived –specifically the language that is stereotypicallyused to describe women but wouldn’t beattributed to their male counterparts. Wehighlighted the following words and providednew, more positive alternatives:In March, RSA celebrated InternationalWomen’s Day in all our regions globally torecognise and celebrate the achievements ofwomen and to support the call to action forgender equality. “Confident, not aggressive”We participated in the City of Londonnetworking breakfast at the Guildhall, insupport of Refuge, a charity which supportswomen and children who experiencedomestic violence. “Emotional intelligence, not justemotional”In support of the #BalanceForBettertheme, we showcased role models fromacross our UK business who embracegender balance. Our inspiring storiesincluded: senior women sharing adviceabout progressing to the top; balancing workas working parents; senior leaders workingpart time; and men and women promotinggender balance from the top. “A leader, not bossy” “Working parents, not just workingmothers”In support of our commitment to genderbalance, we also recognised InternationalMen’s Day in November. Our theme focusedon ‘rewriting the rules of masculinity’,highlighting that ‘it’s okay not to be okay’.We arranged a special talk with a positivemale role model who champions well-beingand self-care in the workplace. A video ofthe talk was shown across our sites. Weare continuously looking at ways to betterengage men in gender diversity discussions.

Gender Pay Gap Report 2019Support forWorking ParentsWe recognise that family friendly policies helpto remove barriers for those with parentingor caring responsibilities, and those who arethinking about starting a family and help tocreate an environment where parents cantake parental leave and still have a successfulcareer, regardless of gender. We alsorecognise the importance of transparency ofthese policies, including to potential applicantsas well as existing employees. We thereforesupported campaigns by the Associationof British Insurers and Mumsnet for greatertransparency and have voluntarily publishedall our parental policies online, ahead of theoutcome of the Government’s consultationon this matter. We recently improvedour support for working parents and areimplementing a whole suite of provisions tobetter support working parents. This includesthe introduction of paid time off for fathers toattend ante natal appointments, paid time offfor fertility treatment, extension of maternity/shared parental leave if a baby is bornprematurely and needs to remain in hospital,paid compassionate leave in the event of amiscarriage and better signposting of supportfor employees.Additionally, following a successful pilot, weare implementing a buddy programme forindividuals going on parental leave, aimed atproviding additional support for those going onleave and whilst on leave, and facilitating aneffective return to work.For our UK Management Group employees,we have also introduced a facility provided bythe specialist organisation My Family Care tohelp find suitable childcare or eldercare whenusual arrangements break down or last minuteprovisions are needed.07Flexible Ways of WorkingAt RSA we aim to take a flexible approachto how our employees work. We understandthat current and potential future employeeswill have responsibilities outside of work whichput demands on their time. Offering a rangeof flexible working options is one of the waysin which we can try to help our employeesachieve the work/life balance which is rightfor them. In parts of our UK business, weare piloting the advertising of roles as ‘happyto talk flexible working’, aimed at improvingthe conversation about flexible workingopportunities for potential applicants. Whilstour approach to flexible working applies toeveryone, we know that in order to addressthe Gender Pay Gap, it’s important thatwomen in particular don’t have to choosebetween family or career.EmployeeResource GroupOur UK gender based employee resourcegroup is called RSA Balance. The missionof the group is to “Drive and sustain genderbalance at all levels of the organisation, tobetter represent and serve our customersand make RSA a fulfilling place to work.”A variety of personal development sessionshave been facilitated by the group, ontopics such as: managing your inner critic;owning your strengths; using stories towin over others; how to do twice as muchwith your time; and negotiation skills. Wereceive excellent feedback on the peer-topeer learning environment created throughthese sessions, which involve discussions ondevelopment topics affecting all genders.Creating aninclusive workplaceGender is one aspect of our Diversity &Inclusion vision. During 2019, employeesacross RSA raised awareness of the valueof wider diversity and inclusion within ourorganisation. RSA was a proud sponsor of the Dive InFestival, a pan-insurance initiative focusedon inclusion. The vision is for the insuranceindustry to be recognised as a progressiveindustry where workplaces create a levelplaying field for talent and attract the verybest people. RSA hosted events on socialmobility, mental health and the positiveimpact of inclusion. During the summer RSA participated in Pridecelebrations.
