Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Chattanooga is a growing community combining the best of big city conveniences with a small town feel. More than 2,500 Unum employees and their families call the Chattanooga area home.
A revitalized downtown offers residents and visitors a taste of city life with outdoor activities just a short drive away. Downtown's renaissance in the past decade has brought scores of new restaurants, coffee hours and entertainment venues, along with city parks and playgrounds. Urban housing is also in abundance, with new condo developments and restored homes filling the tree-lined streets of the city. Unum's campus is located downtown.
Chattanooga was the original home of Provident Life and Accident Insurance Company, a predecessor of Unum. The company was founded in 1887. Chattanooga is Unum's headquarters site.
