In early 2020, the company shifted to virtual work rapidly, successfully transitioning about 98% of its employees worldwide to remote work arrangements. According to Miles Archer, senior vice president of internal audit at Unum, the company “stood up a cross-functional, operational decision-making team to help Unum begin reacting and responding to what was a very dynamic and multifaceted situation evolving around the globe.”
