United Community earns Cigna Healthy Workforce Gold recognition

  • Posted on March 13, 2024

GREENVILLE, SC, -- Community has been named a gold-level recipient of Cigna’s coveted 2023 Healthy Workforce Designation, which is based on multiple assessments of the bank’s commitment to providing a sustainable, healthy work culture.

Each year, Cigna evaluates organizations’ leadership, resources and support in promoting employee well-being. Measures include worksite policies and accommodations that foster safe and healthy outcomes for employees. United was awarded “gold,” the highest level of achievement. Out of 195 organizations recognized, United is one of only five banks to receive this honor.

“United is proud to be recognized by Cigna for our commitment to having a healthy work culture,” said Chief Human Resources Officer Holly Berry. “People are the heart of our brand, and integral to building the financial well-being of the communities and clients we serve. I’d like to acknowledge and thank the entire human resources team, for their accomplishments in making this a great place for great people to work.”

This is the most recent of many accolades the bank has received, including American Banker naming United one of the “Best Banks to Work For” in 2023. It was the seventh year in a row that United received this recognition. United was one of only three banks on the 2023 list with more than $25 billion in assets.

In addition, this spring United is set to open its new headquarters in Greenville, S.C., bringing with it an astounding $65 million in economic impact. The building will be one of the first in the state to adhere to the WELL Building Standard which aims to advance employee health through design, protocols and procedures that support well-being.
