Responsibility

We're dedicated to making a difference in people's lives every day

Unum’s 2017 Corporate Responsibility Report highlights the focus, passion and commitment we have for helping people through difficult times. The report provides a glimpse into the ways the company is working to positively impact our customers, communities and environment while creating a workplace where each employee is valued and respected.

Our three pillars of giving

Education

We believe education is the foundation of strong communities and the key to great futures for our children. That’s why our support for students, teachers and schools in our communities is our top priority and single biggest area of giving. More than half our charitable contributions each year go to education, but our support extends far beyond writing a check.

Arts and culture

Access to arts and culture sparks creativity, fires imaginations, enriches diversity and brings communities to life. And being exposed to art, music and theater is vital to a great education. We work with organizations to deliver arts education and cultural opportunities to as many students as possible, including those in previously underserved parts of the community.

Health and wellness

We take pride in providing our employees the support they need to lead healthy, active lives. In step with that commitment, we extend the same support to our home communities by contributing to organizations and programs that focus on improving health and quality of life for all.
