Our community engagement activities in the UK centre on three key areas:
We support organisations that provide education for all young people within our local communities to prepare the future workforce.
We equip our employees to make a positive impact through mentoring relationships and pro-bono/skill sharing activities.
We educate and engage our workforce on key societal issues within our communities. This includes supporting organisations that positively impact healthier, inclusive and sustainable places to live and work in a fair and equitable society that has room for everyone to thrive.
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time. We are committed to our responsibility in fighting climate change and are dedicated to reducing our environmental impact on our planet. We endeavour to support our customers and suppliers to do the same.
At Unum, being an environmentally sustainable business means:
Unum UK encourages our staff to be mindful about the environment and their own carbon footprints.
As part of this, we introduced optional benefit Ecologi to our annual flexible benefits window in June 2021. This allows employees to make either single or monthly donations to offset their carbon footprint by funding global climate projects and planting trees. Keep up to date with our progress.
We're here to help
