Unum Technology Solutions Offer HR Professionals Support in New World of Work

Unum (NYSE: UNM) has a suite of tech-forward solutions in response to the growing needs of employees in a competitive talent market. According to recent Unum research, two of the top HR challenges in the workplace support employees’ mental health and employee attraction and retention.1

Over half (56%) of U.S. workers said they felt mentally unwell according to Unum research. Polly Nicholas, SVP of Unum Solutions said the company is at the center of helping employees when they need time away from work and employers save time when administering benefits.

“Unum has always been an organization that helps the working world thrive throughout life’s moments. When you consider what the world has gone through in the last few years, now, more than ever, we are in a profound sort of touchstone for how we can show up for people,” said Nicholas.

“Our internal data shows there was a 37% growth in Unum disability claims paid and 55% increase in leaves administered. When you couple that with the national conversation around leave, mental and financial wellness, our portfolio of solutions can provide meaningful support for America’s workers and businesses,” Nicholas added.

Unum’s service and technology solutions complement businesses as they meet the needs of a changing workforce. The suite of digital solutions:

  • Support Time Away: Unum Total Leave and Unum Leave Logic provides easy to understand leave planning and management tools that deliver an elevated employee experience and accurate data for HR.
