Allstate NI has earned Business in the Community’s CORE Silver Status accreditation for excellence in corporate responsibility. The recognition is Northern Ireland’s only standard for honoring a company’s community engagement, responsible leadership and commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
With 2,400 employees in Belfast, Strabane and Londonderry, Allstate NI is the biggest tech company in Northern Ireland and is a leader in its communities, promoting diversity and fostering an inclusive culture.
CORE is an independent accreditation designed to verify best practices in corporate responsibility and sustainability. It benchmarks Allstate NI against other leading business and public sector organisations in Northern Ireland.
Allstate NI performed best in the Responsible Leadership category, a practice highlighted as clearly embedded within the company’s culture. Business in the Community commended Allstate NI’s employee-led culture and its commitment to promoting diversity.
With a long-standing reputation for giving back to local communities, the company was praised for its structured approach to identifying areas of engagement that link both business need and employee concern.
Last year saw Allstate become the first company in Northern Ireland to be awarded the Silver Diversity Mark by Diversity Mark NI for fostering inclusivity through its hiring and workplace policies, with a focus on supporting the LGBTQ+ community.
Managing Director of Allstate NI John Healy said:
“We integrate social and environmental concerns into our operations and take our responsibility towards supporting our local communities seriously. These practices are reflected across every area of our business model, and we are pleased to see them highlighted with Business in the Community’s CORE Silver Status accreditation.”
Deputy Managing Director at Business in the Community Lisa McIlvenna said:
“It is fantastic to see Northern Ireland’s largest tech firm awarded our Silver Status accreditation. The CORE framework recognises companies with a clear commitment to integrating corporate responsibility into the way they do business, and we are encouraged to see Allstate NI embedding our key practices into company policy.”
