- 4.0FEATURED REVIEWMar 9, 2023DirectorCurrent Employee, more than 5 yearsPortland, ME
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as a collaborative/engagement play but it feels like there are more reasons not being articulated...perhaps an outdated way of thinking about work and a desire for greater control.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.14Unum Response6mo
