Job description

At Genworth, we empower families to navigate the aging journey with confidence.

Genworth values all perspectives, characteristics, and experiences so that employees can bring their full, authentic selves to work to help each other and our company succeed. We celebrate our diversity and understand that being intentional about inclusion is the only way to create a sense of belonging for all associates. We also invest in the vitality of our local communities through grants from the Genworth Foundation, event sponsorships, and employee volunteerism.

Our four values guide our strategy, our decisions, and our interactions:

  • Make it human. We care about the people that make up our customers, colleagues, and communities.
  • Make it about others. We do what's best for our customers and collaborate to drive progress.
  • Make it happen. We work with intention toward a common purpose and forge ways forward together.
  • Make it better. We create fulfilling purpose-driven careers by learning from the world and each other.
