We understand employee challenges and successes contribute to building our strong, compassionate company. We offer Cigna Caregiver Leave that provides wage replacement, for up to 4 weeks, for employees who need time off to bond with a child, care for a family member with a serious health condition, or care for a covered military service member with a serious injury or illness. In addition, Cigna offers caregivers resources through the Employee Assistance Program and a 30-minute seminar that explores the signs of caregiver stress and burnout, strategies for self-care, identifying ways to deal with family dynamics, and how to stay resilient in the face of caregiving stress.
In 2018, Cigna's Multi-Generational Colleague Resource Group hosted an event designed to explore ways of supporting caregivers. More than 850 employees attended the event highlighting the “unmentionables” of caregiving. They also created the Peer-to-Peer forum, a place that employees can go to support and learn from each other on how to handle the stress of caregiving.
