For Our Colleagues

Chapter 02

Our Approach

MetLife’s commitment to building confident futures energizes colleagues and creates an environment in which everyone feels like they belong and can thrive. Our Employee Value Proposition (EVP), “All Together Possible,” is our promise to deliver on this commitment through comprehensive and inclusive benefits, services and experiences for our colleagues. All Together Possible is underpinned by three focus areas:

  • Guided By Empathy: At the heart of our culture lies a passion for people that guides us in everything we do and connects us to our customers.
  • Winning Together: We believe that an inclusive culture where unique attributes, perspectives, voices and contributions are valued and respected—and where everyone has access to what they need to succeed—enables us to win together.
  • Driven By Growth: We empower our colleagues to build a career, perform at their best and turn their ambitions into reality, all while focusing on our customers and growing our business.

MetLife’s 2023 U.S. Employee Benefit Trends Study (EBTS) found that employee care—an employer’s genuine demonstration of interest in their employees’ overall well-being, both at work and outside of work—increases several measures of employee health and productivity. Employers that care for their employees promote financial wellness and holistic health across the workforce, ultimately realizing better talent management outcomes and increased business performance.

Our EVP is demonstrated through employee care which aims to better connect our people to the suite of benefits, services and experiences that differentiate MetLife as an employer of choice.
