Voya Financial Announces Second Annual National Day of Service

NEW YORK, May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), will hold its second annual National Day of Service today, May 14, 2015. This enterprise-wide, volunteer initiative engages thousands of Voya Financial employees in a single day, maximizing the company's impact in the communities where its employees and customers live and work.

More than 100 events will take place at or near Voya's nine major offices across the U.S.  Individuals who are part of the company's Virtually Orange remote workforce will also have opportunities to participate across the country. Employees will volunteer their time and energy supporting philanthropic activities that align with Voya's corporate responsibility focus, including financial literacy, children's education and the environment.

"At Voya, we're very proud of our peoples' commitment to community service — and we support their spirit of caring by providing full-time employees with 40 hours of paid volunteer time each year," said Voya Financial Chairman and CEO Rodney O. Martin, Jr. "During last year's inaugural Voya National Day of Service, more than 3,000 employees volunteered a total of 9,000 hours to local nonprofits, and we look forward to building on that success today."

Voya Financial seeks to create shared value for the company and the communities it serves by conducting business in a way that is socially, environmentally, economically and ethically responsible. Similar to last year, employees participating in the National Day of Service will disperse into their communities wearing signature shirts with the Voya orange logo, and choose from a range of activities geared toward their individual passions and interests. Many activities will reinforce the Voya Foundation's focus on children's education and financial literacy through partnerships with organizations like Junior Achievement, Girls Inc. and United Way.

As an industry leader and advocate for greater retirement readiness, Voya Financial is committed to delivering on its vision to be America's Retirement Company and to making a secure financial future possible — one person, one family, one institution at a time.
