Making a difference

A note from Rick McKenney

Unum has a long history of making a difference in people's lives, from our customers to our employees — and, just as importantly, to the communities where we live, work and play.

Our employees pursue a shared purpose of providing essential financial protection to millions of workers that helps keep families secure and supports the success of thousands of businesses.

That commitment to helping people through challenging times extends to our approach to social responsibility. We support organizations that make our communities stronger for all. We advocate for greater access to the benefits that strengthen our societies and families. We protect the environment around us, and invest in our workplace culture — all while following sound, ethical business practices.

At the same time, Unum is in the process of developing a framework to make measured progress in how external organizations rate our ESG efforts, which may include policy and practice changes but also further disclosing the positive things we are already doing.

Our world and our business have changed a lot during the more than 170 years we've been around, but our employees, customers and communities can count on one constant: the caring spirit at the heart of who we are. This report highlights some of the ways our nearly 10,000 employees in the U.S., U.K., Ireland, and Poland make a positive difference in people's lives every day.
