Unum Live: Retention, grief and resilience at work

April 20, 2022

Adria Horn of Tilson Technologies joined Unum leaders Mike Simonds and Swapnil Prabha for a special discussion about grief and the workplace. In a widely shared article from McKinsey & Company, Horn explained how her five deployments with the U.S. military gave her significant insight into "the Great Resignation." In this special Unum Live event, she shared key lessons employers can take from her own experience — where she had to repeatedly reassimilate into "normal" life after years away — to help employees transition into their post-pandemic working lives.
