UnitedHealth Group is an essential business. The health and safety of our team members is our highest priority, so we are taking a science driven approach to slowly welcome and transition some of our workforce back to the office with many safety protocols in place. We continue to monitor and assess before we confirm the return of each wave, paying specific attention to geography-specific trends. At this time, 90% of our non-clinical workforce transitioned to a work at home (remote) status. We have taken steps to ensure the safety of our 325,000 team members and their families, providing them with resources and support as they continue to serve the members, patients and customers who depend on us.

Some of the steps we've taken to ensure employee well-being include:

  • Transitioned our new hire training classes to be conducted virtually

  • Launched our ProtectWell app and UnitedCARES program to help ease the burden and stress for our UnitedHealth Group team members and their immediate family affected by COVID-19

  • Daily updates from our CEO Dave Wichmann to support and inspire team members during this challenging time

  • Onsite social distancing and increased sanitization measures for employees who have been welcomed back to our offices

  • Fully cover the COVID-19 healthcare costs for our employees

  • Employees who self-identify as high risk or who live with someone who is high risk have been asked to remain working from home
