We Recognize the Great Work of Individuals, Teams and Each Other
When we recognize tremendous effort, uplift great accomplishments and express appreciation for daily contributions, we show employees and all others that the impact of their work and what they accomplish on behalf of our customers is valued and matters.
We have three primary recognition programs that honor our employees’ unwavering focus on our purpose, customer experiences, collaboration and experimentation:
- Continuous recognition, through MetLife's enhanced global recognition program, Center Stage, allows colleagues to recognize each other anytime for anniversaries, milestones or successes;
- Above and Beyond Award, in which every quarter we recognize colleagues for their collaboration, experimentation and customer-focused achievements; and
- Purpose Award, an exclusive, selection-based award recognizing colleagues who went to extraordinary efforts to bring MetLife’s purpose to life.
We Encourage Employees to Prioritize Health
We believe that a person’s potential and well-being are inseparable. We prioritize the health and well-being of our employees and provide specific resources so they can do the same. In 2020 we launched BeWell, a global platform that provides resources to help employees with resilience and coping, staying balanced, maintaining physical and financial well-being and building healthy relationships.
As the pandemic continued to take its toll on mental health in 2021, it became even more vital to support mental health and combat mental health stigmas. The BeWell program intensified its focus to promote and reinforce sustained healthy mental habits, such as mindfulness, sleep, exercise and practicing appreciation and gratitude. We incorporated training on how to prioritize well-being into our Leading the Future program for people leaders. Through Town Hall presentations and the voice of our CEO, we sent a resounding message that we care about the well-being of our employees, that we share in a global experience and that we understand the health, economic and social challenges of recent times.
Our benefits prioritize holistic well-being, encouraging and equipping all employees globally to sustain and improve their physical, mental, financial and social wellness. We offer competitive total compensation and benefits to engage and motivate our talented employees. By designing these programs to enable our employees to build a more confident future, we live our purpose, promote our business objectives, align management’s interests with those of our many stakeholders and underscore our focus on long-term shareholder value.
