Some of the steps we've taken to ensure employee well-being include:

  • Transitioned our new hire training classes to be conducted virtually

  • Launched our ProtectWell app and UnitedCARES program to help ease the burden and stress for our UnitedHealth Group team members and their immediate family affected by COVID-19

  • Daily updates from our CEO Dave Wichmann to support and inspire team members during this challenging time
