Unconscious Bias training

We train our leaders to make more informed and effective decisions by mitigating unconscious bias. There’s extensive research about the impact of unintended bias in decisions that affect people in the workplace so in 2017 we launched “Decide: The Neuroscience of Breaking Bias,” an eLearning experience that helps leaders identify, label and take action to minimize bias in order to build effective and inclusive teams.

Connect With Our Communities

Our associates are passionate about serving our members and giving back to the community and the company supports these efforts through several programs.

Year-round, Anthem associates give generously to health-related nonprofit organizations across the country through our Associate Giving Program, which offers a 50 percent match from the Anthem Foundation.

The Dollars for Doers program encourages year-round associate volunteerism—and helps associates’ commitment go even further by providing grants to eligible organizations where the volunteer service is completed. In 2017, our associates logged over 55,000 hours! To make it even easier to volunteer, associates can have up to eight hours of paid volunteer time off each year to be used to volunteer at qualified charities of their choice.

The Volunteer Recognition Program invites Anthem associates to share their volunteer stories or nominate their colleagues who volunteer in the community. Each quarter associates nominate and vote for a winner who exemplifies our value of Caring for Our Communities. The winner chooses an eligible charity to receive a special grant from the Anthem Foundation.
