NEW YORK, Sept. 22, 2017 /3BL Media/ - Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), Chairman and CEO Rodney O. Martin, Jr. participated in CECP's second CEO Investor Forum on Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017, to promote the integration of ESG performance into long-term business plans. 

Martin presented along with seven other CEOs, including leaders from Aetna, The Allstate Corporation and Delphi. The CEO presentations were part of efforts by CECP: The CEO Force for Good to provide leading institutional investors with better insight into companies' long-term plans and the greater sustained earnings power proven to come from longer-term thinking.

In addition to providing an outlook on Voya's long-term plans for advancing the company's business strategy, Martin shared how Voya is helping customers and contributing to society – both today and in the future. He also discussed how the integration of corporate responsibility into a company's strategy can directly impact business outcomes. Martin described how Voya has created business value for its stakeholders by:

  • Helping people with disabilities, and caregivers, plan for the future they envision through its Voya Cares program,
  • Acting as a driver of diversity and inclusion by achieving and continually improving its board and leadership diversity, and
  • Encouraging employee volunteerism that has resulted in a volunteer rate 34% greater than the U.S. corporate average.
