CNO's underlying compensation philosophy is guided by a Pay for Performance principle that rewards associates based on company, business segment, and individual performance:

  • Pay for Performance: Rewards will vary based on company, business segment, and individual performance.

We strive to attract, reward, and retain experienced talent to continue to improve our performance and build our organization’s capability. We:

  • Reward sustainable financial, operational, and productivity improvements. The same work that will help you develop in your career and in your everyday job.

  • Align the interests of our organization with those of our shareholders, customers and associates.

  • Offer the opportunity to earn above-market compensation when overall and individual performances exceed expectations.


Recognizing commitment and demonstrated exemplary effort of our core values is critical to our culture. Therefore it makes perfect sense that CNO recognizes commitment of service and going the extra mile.

When you feel recognized, you embrace the goals and vision of the
company, feel your contributions make a difference, and become inspired to do great work.
