Voya Financial Recognized Twice — By Caregiving.com And LIMRA — For Its Continued Commitment To The Disabilities Community Through Voya Cares
Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), announced today that both Caregiving.com, a Carely, Inc., company, and LIMRA, a research, consulting and professional-development organization for the financial services industry, recently recognized the company’s support and advocacy of the disabilities community through its Voya Cares program. Voya received Caregiving.com’s 2020 Caregiving Visionary Caregiving Organization of the Year Award for its comprehensive set of benefits and policies that support caregivers and LIMRA’s Creative Connections Gold Award for its campaign promoting the Voya Cares program. The awards were presented during recent virtual events from Caregiving.com and LIMRA.
The mission of the Caregiving Visionary Awards is to honor individuals and organizations that act as beacons of hope for caregivers. Caregiving.com recognized Voya for its comprehensive set of benefits and policies supporting caregivers, including insurance, back-up child and elder care, flexible paid time off (PTO), remote work options, family leave policies, health advocates, robust Employee Assistance Program and its collaboration with Wellthy support services. It also recognized Voya for its whitepaper that shows the impact caregiving has on the workplace, outlining gaps in support and potential actions to take through benefits planning.
“We’re fortunate to have great support from our CEO and our employees to drive our disability inclusion efforts,” said Jessica Tuman, VP, Voya Cares Center of Excellence, which is the company’s program that focuses on internal and external efforts relating to serving people with disabilities and special needs as well as their caregivers. “These awards are a reflection of what we stand for as a company — we care, we’re inclusive and we advocate for equity for everyone. At Voya, we’re honored to be recognized for this very important work to drive inclusion for people with special needs and caregivers.”
Voya was selected as Caregiving Organization of the Year from a pool of 60+ nominations by their awards committee, which consists of members of Caregiving.com and Difference Collaborative teams. This was the first year this particular honor was awarded and the fifth year of the Caregiving Visionary Awards.
Additionally, Voya received the LIMRA Creative Connections Gold Award for its campaign promoting the Voya Cares program’s commitment to serving people with disabilities. Established in 2017, the award recognizes and rewards marketing and creative excellence, innovation and achievement. Thirty-eight companies from seven different countries submitted 45 entries for consideration.
Voya collaborated with two unique individuals — 9-year-old Special Olympics Athlete Lily Allison and singer-songwriter Mandy Harvey — to share their messages of inclusivity and kindness, and the impact of finding someone like you, which can empower individuals facing challenges. Mandy and Lily share the same rare and invisible genetic disease Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), a connective tissue disorder.
