Our Culture

What We Value

We believe in creating a place where people aspire to work and where everyone is able to contribute their best and succeed.  We are guided by six key We Are Unum principles: a caring spirit, an appetite for smart risk, a willingness to own it, an appreciation for differences, a passion for achieving results and an unwavering customer focus.
Unum provides numerous opportunities throughout the year for employees to participate in volunteer activities supporting  non-profit agencies and our communities.

Belong and Embrace

Our international network of professionals works together to explore new ideas and bring a wide array of perspectives to the table.
