Unum is a company of people serving people. As one of the world's leading employee benefits providers, Unum helps protect more than 25 million working people and their families in the event of illness or injury.
But we do more than protect individuals and their livelihoods. Our employee benefit plans are as much about helping employers as the people they employ. We're looking ahead, at the trends and challenges that are driving change in the global workplace. As a result, we can deliver intelligent, forward-thinking benefit programs to prepare businesses — and their employees — for the future. Our benefit programs can help businesses attract and retain quality people, reduce the cost of absenteeism and return employees to work after an illness or injury — creating a more satisfied and productive workforce.
We show companies how to get the most from their benefit programs, helping them to build a stronger workforce — and ultimately, a stronger business.
