At MetLife, we’ve been in the business of making and keeping promises for more than 150 years. We help all our stakeholders build a more confident future, and we are committed to doing so for decades to come. That’s why we care so much about sustainability.

For us, sustainability is about making a positive impact on society while improving the value proposition of our company. We want to do both. 

That’s why we were the first insurer globally to join the UN Women Global Innovation Coalition for Change. It’s why we joined CEO Champions For Change, a transformational diversity and inclusion project launched by Catalyst. It’s why we created a $10 million Workforce of the Future Development Fund, which helps our employees cultivate a wide range of forward-looking skills. 

MetLife Foundation recently completed a $200 million commitment to advance financial inclusion worldwide, and it continues to support projects that build financial health for low-income people. On the environmental front, MetLife was the first U.S.-based insurance company to achieve carbon neutrality. 

Our employees play a crucial role in our sustainability work. Through hands-on and skills-based volunteering, they are building healthier, more resilient communities around the world. In 2018 alone, MetLife volunteers provided more than 99,000 hours of service.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at MetLife in February 2020.


    It was very well coordinated and prompt. They have a recruitment team who set up the time and confirmed all the details by email. The hiring manager was very relaxed and easy to speak with and provided a lot of information about her personal experience with the company.
