To pause and make the effort to listen to one another’s perspectives, with empathy. This is who we are as an organization as we seek to deliver affordable, predictable and simple care to our more than 175 million customer relationships worldwide, and the surrounding communities where they live and work.
“Reflecting the highly personalized nature of healthcare, our approach is grounded in making a difference one person at a time.

From The Company
As a global health service company, Cigna’s mission is to improve the health, well-being and peace of mind of those we serve by making health care simple, affordable and predictable.
Diversity is a priority and an important part of our values and inclusive culture. We believe that diversity is more than what is on the outside, and that we grow stronger from different perspectives and experiences. Our promise is to advance an inclusive culture that is powerfully diverse; strives for equity; and values the unique differences and talents we each bring in service to our mission.
At the end of the day, we know that when employees feel like they belong and can bring their best selves to work, we’re better able to serve the needs of our diverse customers, clients and communities. Together, we can drive the kind of meaningful, systemic and lasting change that’s needed to improve health equity for all.
This is essential to us at Cigna, because as a global health services company, we’re dedicated to improving the health, well-being, and peace of mind of those we serve. With more than 175 million customer and patient relationships in more than 30 countries and jurisdictions, we are able to harness actionable insights that address whole-person health and drive better health outcomes.
At Cigna, we take an expansive view of diversity to include race; ethnicity; nationality; gender; veteran status; ability; preferred languages; work styles; generational and cultural facets; sexual orientation; and gender identity. Among our stakeholders and more than 70,000 employees, many diﬀerent cultures, beliefs and values are represented. And while diversity is the broad mix of people, inclusion is making the mix work.
Our global workforce is dedicated to living our mission and being champions for our customers and communities. We call this the “Power of We.” By working together in close partnership with our colleagues, customers, providers, clients and communities, we are able to create personalized solutions and advance whole-person health.
Our goal is to provide the right services and solutions, in the right setting, at the right time, to address the diverse health needs of our customers and patients in a highly personalized way — each and every day.
