Employees talk about how
their innovations help customers.

One of the world’s most famous innovators, Albert Einstein, said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” At The Hartford, the imagination, innovation and inventiveness of our employees are creating new products and services for customers and agents.

Thanks to our inventors, The Hartford now has more than 100 patents and 229 patent applications pending. Most of that intellectual property was created in the past three years, with 43 patents issued in 2012 alone. These patents and patent applications are tangible evidence of the value the company places on intellectual property, innovating, inventing and protecting ideas.
