A Decade of Progress: Multiple Perspectives, Diverse Backgrounds and Community Giving Propel Lincoln Into 2020


Today, Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) celebrates recent accolades in corporate responsibility, highlighting the company's significant efforts to improve the lives of its customers, employees and communities, and setting the stage for the next decade of continued focus and momentum in these critical areas.

In today's tight job market, a company's commitment to doing the right thing for its communities, its employees and the environment can make a difference when it comes to recruiting and retaining top talent. According to a new survey, 40% of employed US adults say they would turn down their dream job if they weren't sure of an employer's commitment to doing the right thing, and 53% say they would turn down the opportunity to leave their current employer for a higher-paying job if the new company was less socially responsible1.

Lincoln is dedicated to building vital communities through philanthropy, creating a diverse and inclusive culture that develops and empowers its employees, protecting the environment through sustainable business practices, and operating with transparency and responsibility.

"In all that we do at Lincoln, we are focused on a common purpose: to provide financial peace of mind to everyday consumers across the United States. This shared mission infuses each of our actions with meaning ? in both our business practices and community outreach programs," said Dennis R. Glass, president and CEO of Lincoln Financial Group. "The more diversity of thought, experience and people we have, the better our decisions will be. More support for the communities in which we live and work translates to higher employee engagement. Not only is being a responsible company the right thing to do ? it also makes us stronger and helps us best serve our customers."
