Cigna Ethics & Governance
When people join the Cigna team, they learn five values that define our standards and describe our expectations. Three of these values make a direct connection with our strong ethics and corporate governance. They are:
We act with integrity. We demonstrate courage. We are committed to excellence.
Integrity helps drive everything we do. We pledge to honor:
- Integrity in protecting Cigna's reputation and goodwill
- Integrity in the marketplace
- Integrity in the public sector
- Integrity as a socially responsible corporate citizen
- Integrity in the workplace
While integrity helps us understand what is right, often it takes courage to actually do what is right. When a Cigna employee, in good faith, reports Code of Ethics and Principles of Conduct concerns, or participates in an investigation of these matters, they will not be subject to retaliation. Any Cigna employee who engages in retaliation is subject to disciplinary action up to, and including, termination.
We back this up with an ethics training program and annual affirmation statements from all employees. We regularly provide educational communications to our Cigna team that strongly convey the importance of doing the right thing for Cigna and for our millions of customers, clients and partners around the globe.
Cigna also has a strong risk assessment and reporting process that ensures monitoring and regular updating of significant compliance issues. Quarterly reports are shared with our Executive Leadership Team and Board of Directors.
Clear and consistent governance standards are absolutely fundamental in today’s complex business world. Key elements of our corporate governance framework include an independent board and board leadership, transparency and communication with shareholders and stakeholders, robust risk management oversight and strong governance practices and controls around executive compensation.
Ethics and strong corporate governance, they both guide us to do what is right for our current and prospective business partners, our customers and our investors.
