Careers that change lives – including yours!

Cultivate Uniqueness

At Humana, we see diversity as the reality of the world we live in, and inclusion is what we hope to achieve with it.

We strive to create an inclusive culture. Inclusion is an attitude and a mindset that enables us to create a meaningful work environment where our associates feel welcome and safe to be their true selves. Through Humana’s inclusive environment, we support and encourage our people to maximize their potential, and bring their A-game to work every day.

We see the diversity within our own organization as a business imperative. It is the abundance of experiences and perceptions—the unique characteristics, backgrounds, and beliefs of our associates—that drive the innovative and strategic thinking which gives Humana our competitive edge in a diverse marketplace. Humana embraces the diversity of the communities and consumers we serve, and we reflect that in our commitment to our people.

Veteran's initiative

Humana prides itself on having a noble purpose to help millions of Americans achieve lifelong well-being. We’re also proud of another noble purpose to be one of the companies across the nation committed to putting 1,000,000 veterans and military spouses back to work. This is a companywide initiative being embraced as it honors our service men and women, and their families, for the sacrifices they’ve made for our country.
