Elizabeth Ahmed is the Executive Vice President of People, Communications, Brand and Corporate Responsibility at Unum, a disability insurance company with 11,000 global employees. She speaks with MCI executive director Marjorie Malpiede about new approaches the company is taking in areas that are of particular interest to Gen Z graduates entering the workforce: diversity and inclusion, social responsibility, and mental health and wellbeing. Ahmed talks about the ways Unum has re-strategized corporate accountability since 2020, especially towards social justice, behavioral health, and helping Gen-Z workers find purpose in their careers. Creating sustainable work environments includes helping employees thrive, which ultimately helps customers, Ahmed said.
