Corporate Social Responsibility

2015 Corporate Social Responsibility report

At Principal, we come to work each day with one purpose: to help people make progress toward their financial goals, preparing for tomorrow without sacrificing the things that matter today.

Our desire to help people extends beyond our customers. We’re also focused on improving the lives of our employees, the communities we live and work in and the environment we all depend on.

Because of our focus on progress, we’re always looking to the future, asking ourselves, “What’s next?” As a socially responsible company, that means we’re continually asking:

  • How can we continue to strengthen our communities?
  • How can we become an even better place to work for current and future employees?
  • What more can we do to protect the environment?

In our 2015 Corporate Social Responsibility report, we highlight some of the ways we’ve shaped improvements in those key areas in 2015, including:

Community investment

We believe in investing in the communities in which we reside, we do this in a variety of ways such as grants, sponsorships, matching gifts and employee volunteerism.

Environmental sustainability

Our commitment to conserving resources, recycling and other sustainability initiatives has made us a climate leader.

Employee well-being

Our redesigned work environment, wellness programs and diversity initiatives have earned us a reputation as a great place to work.
