At Unum, we are committed to diversity in all aspects of our business, including those suppliers and partners who share our values of integrity, quality and efficiency. Supplier Diversity is a key aspect of how Unum does business and diverse suppliers are an important component of Unum’s Corporate Social Responsibility commitment.
The success of minority-, women-, and disabled veteran-owned business enterprises (MWDVBEs) enriches the communities in which we live and serve. As part of this commitment, we offer MWDVBEs an opportunity to compete on an equal basis with other suppliers to provide quality products and services to us while delivering outstanding value to our shareholders.
We seek to mitigate risks on an enterprise-wide basis through the review of business processes. We seek suppliers who share the philosophy of cost-effective risk mitigation through best practices and the utilization of corporate insurance where warranted.
We are proud to support responsible initiatives that minimize our impact on the environment and help create sustainable communities. We work hard to achieve this goal through conservation efforts, affiliations with organizations committed to developing sustainable communities, and fostering a culture of responsibility among our employees.
We expect suppliers to reflect our commitment to sound environmental practice, and encourage them to develop and supply goods and services that help improve our and their environmental performance.
Unum strives to provide a safe and secure environment for people and assets through the provision of security and safety programs which minimize risk and injury in the workplace. Suppliers working on Unum premises are expected to comply with the same security and safety requirements as our employees.
