Purpose
Always with you, building a more confident future.

At MetLife, we’ve been in the business of making and keeping promises for more than 150 years. We’re always there for our employees, customers, shareholders, and communities — navigating life and change together, finding purpose every day while laying the foundation for a more confident future. A future where our families and finances are protected. A future that’s exciting and full of potential. A future that’s inclusive and sustainable.
Additional Culture Details
We took time to assess the capabilities of our workforce and align them to our forward-looking strategy, called Next Horizon. We dug deeper into how we can best help our employees transfer their current skills into future opportunities — and what types of resources we can provide
to help them do that efficiently. During 2020, we are turning these insights into Next Horizon Days, interactive learning and team-building sessions for every MetLife employee to learn about MetLife’s new strategy, goals, and priorities.
MetLife’s culture of respect and inclusion extends to every aspect of our business, including our compensation practices.
Building trust with our employees and helping them live fuller lives is integral to our purpose and critical to
our success. At MetLife, we believe that caring for our employees starts with understanding what matters most to them. One of the ways our employees keep us informed of their needs is through our annual MyVoice survey. Our primary focus: Delivering Our Purpose, placing emphasis on our leadership, and reinforcing
collaboration, experimentation, and customer focus across MetLife.
