Impact Through Action

2017 Community Impact Report

Associates. Community. Together. 

In 2017, Great-West Financial® and Empower Retirement introduced ACT — Associates. Community. Together. The community impact program empowers our associates to support causes that are closest to their hearts through volunteer service and financial contributions.
