Our value proposition
Why we do what we do

Despite our long history, we’re still a fast-growing, ambitious organisation. All our people are dedicated to making a difference to employees’ lives every day. In this video, you’ll discover more about our unique business and purpose, as told by our own employees in their own words.

Our vision
It's who we are

Unum takes pride in being a high-quality brand — a visionary business with a forward-driven mindset, always looking for the opportunity to help more people.

We explore the unexplored to build better, healthier and more productive workforces, all the time creating lasting change with first-to-market employee propositions.

By blending bigger thinking with the bigger picture, we build solutions that don’t just respond to what employers and employees need now — they also pre-empt what they might want in the future.

And that’s for everyone’s benefit.
