Perks and Programs

We asked Voya Financial to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • National Day of Service: Managed nationwide by the Office of Corporate Responsibility, all employees are encouraged to volunteer on this day in May in activities organized by employee-led groups at each of our major sites and all of our virtual population. Participation in 2017 was 59 percent and more than 13,400 hours were volunteered on the day. One-hundred percent of the top 100 leaders of the company participated in NDOS over the past two years.
  • Employee Giving Campaign: Managed nationwide by the Office of Corporate Responsibility, employees lead a month of events designed to raise awareness of the need in the community and they hold events that engage employees and raise much-needed funds. Participation in 2017 was 68 percent rate and last year's event raised more than $2.3 million from employees alone.
  • Nonprofit Board Placement Program: The Office of Corporate Responsibility strategically places senior executives on nonprofit boards. Since inception of the program, Q4 2016, 38 leaders have been placed on nonprofit boards.
  • Employee Volunteer Sabbatical: The Employee Volunteer Sabbatical is organized together with a nonprofit partner. During the sabbatical, Voya volunteers participate by providing on-the-ground support in a given area around the world for a few days. Voya calls for nominations through its internal website. In 2018, Twenty-one compelling employee volunteers that exemplify Voya’s corporate values were selected to participate.
  • Community Partners: Voya Community Partners is the name of our employee-led volunteer committees at each major office location. Voya Community Partners are a vital part of the company’s overall volunteerism program.Their responsibilities include responding to employees’ interests at their locations, organizing and leading local volunteer events, and assisting in the success of national programs. All Voya major office locations as well as the work-at-home population maintain Community Partners teams that plan and manage year-round local volunteer activities.
  • Orange Goes Green: Orange Goes Green comprises employee-led committees that focus on making it easier for Voya employees to learn about and adopt ways to minimize their environmental impact. Each major site has an Orange Goes Green committee. The committees focus on the following: (1) Research and providing education about, and making available, the means to implement proactive environmental opportunities; (2) Leveraging existing local environmental activities to involve Voya in the community; (3) Providing energy and resource usage awareness to measurably reduce operational costs within the Voya network; and (4) Informing employees of conservation opportunities they may have in their homes.
  • Voya Retirement Plan: In addition to the Voya 401(k) Savings Plan, which includes a six percent match, and a Deferred Compensation Savings Plan, Voya offers a cash-balance pension plan that credits an amount to an account each month equal to four percent of eligible pay (pay credit). Regular full-time or part-time employees are eligible to participant on their date of hire. Participants become vested after completion of three years of service.
  • Virtually Orange: This network was developed to establish work-from-home functionality across the United States regardless of an individual’s position or business unit. This provides a number of potential benefits to employers, employees and the community. Employers experience increased morale and productivity of employees and fewer dedicated office and infrastructure needs. Employees experience increased work/life balance, decreased commuting time and less expenses associated with reporting to a worksite. The community benefits through reductions in the numbers of commuters and a resulting decrease in pollution and traffic congestion. Employees in this arrangement are expected to satisfy all job responsibilities, meet performance expectations and follow Voya policies, guidelines and code of conduct. Voya has 1,918 remote workers, 63 percent of whom are regular employees, making it Voya's second largest “site."
  • Be Well wellness program: The Be Well wellness program offers various programs to help employees and dependents achieve their personal version of a happy and healthy future. The program supports participants in their physical, emotional, social and financial wellness. Most of these programs are offered to employees and dependents at no cost. Highlighting two of the new programs this year: Retrofit, a personalized weight management program to teach simple ways to lose weight for participants with BMI of 27 or greater; and Livongo, a diabetes management program, combines technology with real-time coaching. Livongo provides a connected meter to upload glucose readings and unlimited test strips.
