Humana has again been named one of America’s most JUST companies, ranking No. 1 in the Health Care Providers industry on JUST Capital and Forbes magazine’s JUST 100 List.
The JUST 100 measures publicly traded U.S. companies against the American public’s definition of just corporate behavior, and then ranks the companies based on the results. The list shares information on issues Americans care most about – worker compensation and well-being, customer treatment, product impacts, environmental impact, strong communities, job generation, ethical sourcing and supply chains, transparency and more.
“Our responsibility is to leave the communities we serve and the planet in a better place,” said Bruce Broussard, Humana President and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re fortunate that the decisions we made in the past have allowed Humana to have a great brand, recruit a great group of individuals, have customers join us, and to have a great value proposition for society and the people we serve.”
Humana’s CEO was invited to participate in a panel discussion about what makes a JUST company at an event in New York when Just Capital and Forbes unveiled this year’s Just 100 rankings.
Humana ranked No. 1 out of 18 companies within the Health Care Providers industry, which includes health insurers, hospitals, clinics, dentists, opticians, nursing homes, rehabilitation and retirement centers. Within the Health Care Providers industry, Humana ranks first in issues related to workers and communities, thanks to programs such as Volunteer Time Off (VTO), charitable giving matching, paid paternity leave, the Humana Communities Benefit program, as well as detailed reporting on inclusion and diversity efforts.
The 2017 JUST 100 List will appear in the Dec. 23, 2017, print issue of Forbes.
