Over 89% of associates, even more than in 2018, are inspired by Humana’s commitment to communities. This passion for caring for others is helping to strengthen the steady rise we’ve seen with our overall sense of purpose. And this noble work can enhance personal well-being, too. We’ve discovered that when our associates feel their day-to-day work complements their passions, strengths and expertise, they’re less stressed and significantly more resilient.
Well-being and servant leadership play into my purpose.
When people give it shows they care. So it’s inspiring that our charitable giving took a leap forward! The number of associates participating in Giving Together rose to 9.7%, up from 6.2% in 2018. Plus volunteerism is holding steady. Over 48% of associates tracked volunteer activities last year, logging over 300,000 hours and in many ways helping to bring Humana’s Bold Goal to life across the communities we serve.
I have this wonderful community that has helped me redefine my sense of purpose.
Throughout human history, people have sought purpose and meaning. At Humana, purpose is a beacon for everything we do together.
Humana has always been a community that gives back. And there are so many ways for our associates to further their passions and help others, whether it’s volunteering their time or donating money. In 2019, we launched Humana Together, a new volunteering and giving site, to make it easier for associates to sustain making a difference.

As measured by the Well-being Index, our associates’ sense of purpose remains steady – all changes from last year are very minor. Humana takes a holistic view of Purpose made up of three parts: Career, which is rooted in meaningful work that reflects one’s passions, strengths and expertise; Advocacy, which provides motivation to stand up for what one believes in; and Service, which reflects one’s ability to meaningfully give back to communities. Purpose is one of the significant keys to lifelong well-being.
