Corporate Responsibility

Voya’s Approach to Corporate Responsibility

Our Voya Corporate Responsibility mission is to create shared value for our company and the community by conducting business in a way that is ethically, economically socially and environmentally responsible. That means we work to increase our positive impact on society and decrease our use of natural resources in order to help protect the environment. Our pillars of corporate responsibility include:

  • Serving Our Clients
  • Empowering Our People
  • Investing in Communities
  • Protecting the Environment

We’re proud of our Corporate Responsibility work, which aligns directly with our corporate values, and are pleased with the recognition we’ve received. We invite you to read our most recent CR Annual Report or visit the Corporate Responsibility pages of 

Corporate Responsibility Invests in Communities

Because we are committed to our societal investment as part of our Corporate Responsibility work, Voya offers the following benefits to support employees in their engagement in the community.

Volunteer Time Away – Provides paid time away to volunteer for eligible nonprofit organizations during work hours (40 hours for full-time, 20 for part-time).

Volunteer Matching Gifts – Provides one $500 grant, through Voya Foundation, to an eligible nonprofit organization for which an employee volunteers 50 hours of time during personal, non-work scheduled hours.

Employee Matching Gifts – Matches employee donations through Voya Foundation, one-to-one to eligible nonprofit organizations and two-to-one for Voya Foundation signature partners.

Nonprofit Board Placement Program – Provides a selection of employees in leadership positions with placement on boards of directors of nonprofit organizations.

Marquee Events – Encourages employee engagement in the communities where we live and work by holding two company-wide annual events. 

The National Day of Service, held each spring, is where employees fan out across the United States to participate in our focused day of volunteering that generates tens of thousands of hours of volunteer time for eligible nonprofit organizations. 

In the fall, employees across the company mobilize, as part of our Employee Giving Campaign, to plan and attend fundraising events that raise millions of dollars for the eligible nonprofit organizations that matter to them.

Diversity and Inclusion

Voya is committed to fostering a work environment where the differences that we are born with — and those we acquire throughout our lives — are understood, valued and intentionally pursued. Purposefully bringing our differences together to positively influence our culture, serve our clients and enrich our communities is essential to our vision to be America’s Retirement Company®.

We are stronger because of our differences: race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, marital status, creed, citizenship status, as well as perspective of thoughts, beliefs, education, background and experiences.

We are committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce where all of these differences are purposefully brought together. This governs all decisions related to employment, including selection, development and compensation. We believe that all employees must be treated fairly, with respect, and in a manner free from discrimination and harassment. This also includes an employee’s request for reasonable accommodation.

Voya has eight Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that are open to all employees. These groups play an important role in engaging and educating our workforce — and are a vital resource to help advance our business goals. These groups help Voya foster a more inclusive culture where diverse perspectives are valued and celebrated.

Employee Resource Groups

  • African American
  • Asian American
  • Disabilities and Special Needs
  • Latino
  • LGBTQ and Allies
  • Next Gen
  • Virtual (Voya's remote employees)
  • Women's

Equal Employment Opportunity

Voya Financial is an equal-opportunity employer. Voya Financial provides equal opportunity to qualified individuals regardless of race, color, sex, national origin, citizenship status, religion, age, disability, veteran status, creed, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, or any other status protected by state or local law.

We are committed to maintaining a diverse workforce. This commitment governs all decisions related to employment, including selection, development and compensation. It also includes an employee's request for reasonable accommodation. All employees will be treated in a manner free from discrimination or harassment.
