Development focus helps Colonial Life employees thrive

In a recent study by Gallup, research reveals that companies that focus on employee well-being boost employee performance, have more engaged employees and even have a workforce that is likely to be more thriving overall.

As a leader in employee benefits, Colonial Life understands the value of supporting the health and well-being of people on the job – and at home.

Fostering employee well-being and helping people reach their full potential is one of Colonial Life’s most-important investments.

Promoting wellness

The company’s global health strategy is designed to address the needs of a multigenerational and changing workforce. Tools are provided to employees to manage their own health and wellness, including access to comprehensive health coverage, free health screenings, education on nutrition and mental health, and broader access to preventive services and no-cost medication.

Colonial Life also provides resources that help employees juggle the demands of work and the rest of life’s responsibilities. Services like financial planning, employee assistance programs and retirement planning, as well as teleworking opportunities and paid time off, allow employees the chance to focus on the important things outside of work.

Building careers

When employees do well, the company does well. That’s why significant investments are made in professional growth.

For employees who want to continue their education, Colonial Life provides a range of opportunities to learn. From on-site training programs and off-site seminars to tuition reimbursement for college courses, employees are helped to reach their education goals.

Colonial Life has also created targeted programs to develop leaders and high-valued skill sets.

For example, the Accelerated Leadership Development Program provides junior officers and veterans transitioning from full-time military service with the opportunity to expand their industry knowledge and hone their skill sets through career exploration, mentoring, and support and coaching from senior leadership.

The Actuarial Development Program is a global multi-year rotational program with emphasis on comprehensive actuarial exam support, the practical application of key actuarial skills, and leadership development – all with a focus on preparing participants for success as an actuary and business leader.

And the Professional Development Program provides participants with hands-on experience in 3-4 different roles across our organization.
