Cigna to Hire in Pittsburgh

Cigna (NYSE:CI) is recruiting for approximately 150 new employees in the Pittsburgh area to join its health care customer service team. The company is hiring for management, training and customer service positions at its offices in North Fayette, Pennsylvania.

“Cigna is a global health service company with a strong focus on customer service as a competitive differentiator and that has strong roots in Pittsburgh,” said Julia Huggins, president of Cigna's health care operations in Pennsylvania. “We hire passionate and empathetic people who live our mission to improve the health, well-being and sense of security of the people we serve.”

“Expanding our operations in the area reinforces Cigna's commitment to our customers and to the Pittsburgh region. At Cigna, we work to meet the unique needs of the individual. It is one of the many ways that Cigna adds value and competes in the market. Vibrant competition among insurers in Western Pennsylvania not only benefits consumers but the local economy as well and Cigna is investing in our customers and in Pittsburgh,” Huggins said.

Cigna already has major operations in Pittsburgh, with approximately 1,400 employees locally working in the company’s health coaching and case management center and in the Cigna disability insurance unit. The new job opportunities in Pittsburgh result from growth in the number of Cigna's medical plan customers nationally. Customer service associates located in Pittsburgh will work to assist customers from many different states.

Available positions will be posted on Cigna's website in the Careers section at www.cigna.com. In addition, in early 2014 there will be a career fair and open house for those interested in the new positions. The specific date, time and location will be announced in the future.

In addition to its operations in Pittsburgh, Cigna also has a historic presence in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania that stretches across the state; including the historic headquarters of the Life Insurance Company of North America in Philadelphia and its claims operations center in Scranton. With over 5,000 employees in the Commonwealth, Pennsylvania remains a major employment and operations center for Cigna.

Cigna is committed to diversity and offers an array of employee benefits to employees including health, dental and disability insurance. Its employees are active in the community.

In 2009, Cigna became the first health service company to provide its customers with live 24/7/365 access to its customer service representatives for medical, dental and pharmacy plan customers and contracted health care professionals.
