 Company Background

Over the course of 54 years, Humana has transformed the ways it brings help and care to the people it serves. As a leader in the healthcare industry, Humana has evolved from a company with the episodic customer relationships of a traditional health insurer to a company dedicated to helping people improve their health and well-being, which has become part of the company’s culture. That shared enterprise purpose came into even sharper focus last spring when Humana publically announced a goal to improve the health of the communities it serves 20 percent by 2020, by making it easy for people to achieve their best health.

Humana took the goal a step further for its internal associate community: achieve the results by the end of 2017. Humana believes that, by changing the lives of associates, the company is more able and inspired to help others do the same. Early results are promising. Since 2012, the associate community has reversed the trend toward declining health seen elsewhere in the nation1 and has seen substantial improvements in all dimensions of well-being.
