Corporate Citizenship

Investing isn’t just about money.

We believe that how we do things is just as important as what we do. Ethical corporate governance, social responsibility, and sustainability are the values we’re committed to living out every day.

Doing what’s right has been a part of who we are for more than 135 years. We focus on taking care of not only our customers, advisors, and employees, but also the people who live in the communities where we do business. 

Community involvement

We encourage our employees to actively participate and care for their communities through volunteering, donating, and conserving.

Giving back

Helping people is an important part of our culture. That's why all of us, along with the Principal Financial Group Foundation, Inc., work together to give back in so many ways.

Protecting the environment 

Reducing our carbon footprint. Ensuring efficient use of water and energy. Implementing comprehensive recycling and waste management programs. These are just a few of the ways we minimize our environmental impact.

Diversity and inclusion

We celebrate differences and look to inspire a sense of community. We encourage employees to share and learn from each other, both to broaden their views and enrich their professional and personal lives.

Supporting employees

We take care of our employees through work perks and benefits that can help them advance their careers, improve their health, and balance all of life’s demands.
