Every day across the U.S., U.K. and Ireland, nearly 10,000 Unum employees are working to make a positive impact on the businesses we help protect, the lives we touch and the communities where we live and work. Whether we’re providing financial protection benefits for our customers when they need them most, or ensuring our business is environmentally, socially and fiscally responsible, it’s a commitment we’ve shared for more than 165 years.
Today, our dedication to corporate responsibility continues to define our company’s legacy—and our future. As all of our stakeholders continue to navigate a changing world, it’s more important than ever before that we consider the total impact our business has on our economy, our communities and our planet. We do that by educating policymakers, the public, employers and consumers about the value of financial protection benefits, taking important steps to reduce our environmental footprint, building partnerships to make a difference in our communities and looking for ways to better serve our customers.
Our 2013 corporate responsibility report highlights just some of our many efforts to have a positive difference in the lives of our customers and neighbors—and, in the process, ensure the way we do business isn’t just good for our company: it’s good for all.
