Civic 50 Ranks UnitedHealth Group One of America’s 50 Most Community-Minded Companies
July 11, 2017
UnitedHealth Group ranked as one of America’s most community-minded companies in The Civic 50, an annual initiative from Points of Light recognizing companies that improve the quality of life in the communities where they do business. The company has been included in the rankings every year since The Civic 50 initiative began in 2012.
The survey was conducted by Points of Light, the largest organization in the world dedicated to volunteer service.
Through community-centered programs, partnerships and initiatives, UnitedHealth Group serves people in need, helps employees give back and, through United Health Foundation, provides actionable data to drive important discussions with its America’s Health Rankings®, which tracks short- and long-term successes and identifies current and emerging challenges to the nation’s health.
UnitedHealth Group efforts include:
- Helping to drive the public health conversation through America’s Health Rankings, the longest-running annual assessment of America’s health on a state-by-state basis.
- Expanding access to prenatal and well-baby care through innovative programs to help children get the healthier start they deserve.
- Supporting employees who give back to their communities through the giving! program.
- Working with families and doctors in Alachua County, Fla., to increase access to pediatric dental care.
The Civic 50 is the only survey and ranking system that exclusively measures corporate involvement in communities, and was developed in partnership with a high-profile working group of researchers and industry thought leaders. As a result of this collaborative process, the initiative reflects leading insight and thinking about how corporations can and should connect with communities in a 21st century economy. The findings are determined by an annual survey and compiled for a report to create a roadmap for companies seeking to best use their time, talent and resources to improve the quality of life in the communities where they do business.
