Last week we celebrated the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities. As a leading provider of disability insurance, we help the working world thrive throughout life’s moments by helping people protect their income if they are unable to work. This commitment to equity extends to our workforce where we collectively create a sense of inclusion and belonging, and every employee can see themselves in all aspects of our business. We are honored once again to be recognized by Disability: IN as one of the Disability Equality Index “2023 Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion,” making this the 4th consecutive year. #ADA #DisabilityAwareness #TeamUnum

    Business Outlook


    2022 was a great year for Unum's growth. In addition to record sales, the company is on the digital bandwagon and is seeing great progress towards being a more modern company. Unum also made investments in it's people through a market review of many positions resulting in salary adjustments up for many. They also offered special incentives like stock grants to ensure key staff are retained. The annual performance based incentive bonus paid out at 150% this month. There is also opportunity for career growth, though more of it seems to be at the AVP and up level.


    In recent months Unum has doubled down on its flex policy (work from home 3 days/in office 2 days a week) and will start tracking and reporting to managers when employees badge in/out of the office. The in-office requirement is positioned as a collaborative/engagement play but it feels like there are more reasons not being articulated...perhaps an outdated way of thinking about work and a desire for greater control. Given the record year Unum had in 2022, this position feels tone deaf to the trends in the working world. The empty office buildings show that the desire of many of its employees is to work from home.
