Our success is built upon the performance of our people. We seek to retain and develop highly qualified, diverse and dedicated individuals across our workforce. We believe diversity among employees, with their varying perspectives and talents, enriches our organization, products and services, the communities in which we live and work, and each other. Unum’s active diversity efforts include the establishment of an Inclusion & Diversity Office, employee-directed resource groups for a variety of minority and special interests, frequent programs and speakers on diversity-related topics, and both mandatory and voluntary training on inclusive practices and behavior.
Unum supports employees with a highly competitive compensation and benefits program as well as a comprehensive array of services and programs to enhance physical, mental and financial health. These include paid family leave, tuition assistance, a college savings plan, a scholarship program for children of our employees, onsite health resource centers and fitness facilities, subsidized healthy eating options in onsite cafeterias, employee assistance programs and financial counseling services.
Unum believes all employees should be treated equally with respect, and work in an inclusive environment free from harassment, intimidation and bullying. Our “We Are Unum” values statement, Code of Conduct, Harassment Prohibition Policy, Anti-Retaliation Policy and Equal Employment Opportunity policies are cultural guideposts that help ensure Unum maintains an ethical and inclusive environment. All employees affirm the Code of Conduct and conduct training on these topics annually. We have zero tolerance for harassment, discrimination, bullying and retaliation, and follow our Performance Improvement & Disciplinary Policy to appropriately address issues.
We have multiple procedures to resolve employment-related problems as quickly and confidentially as possible. Based on our values and commitments, we strive to resolve problems in a manner that is respectful to our employees and considers the interests of all concerned.
Consistent with our focus on diversity, health and wellness, we recognize safety as a key priority. Unum strives to provide a safe work environment and give employees the knowledge and resources needed to perform their job in a safe, secure and healthy manner. We will not tolerate any threats or acts of violence on company property or, for work-related reasons, off company property.
Unum complies with the National Labor Relations Act, Equal Employment Opportunity Act and other legislation related to employee rights. We disclose information about occupational safety and health performance upon request from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
