CIGNA's commitment to a diverse workforce has been long-standing. Diversity efforts build upon CIGNA's strong foundation of good faith efforts to attract, hire, develop, promote, and retain the most qualified candidates. Ensuring that human resource programs, practices and policies are competitive and consistent for all continues to be the cornerstone of that commitment.
The stewardship for turning this commitment into action rests with CIGNA's senior management. The CIGNA executive management team implements a host of diversity efforts and objectives in alignment with individual business plans. It is by linking diversity to the overall mission of sustained profitable growth that an inclusive and fully participatory workforce will result. It is only through fostering the development of unique perspectives and ideas that CIGNA will be able to meet and anticipate customers' needs.
