Diversity at Health Net is vital to realizing our vision – making health care work for you. President and Chief Executive Officer, Jay Gellert, explains:
Whatever job you're considering, keep in mind that opportunities at Health Net are geared toward development and upward mobility. All associates – including minorities, women, the disabled and veterans benefit from a work environment and value system that demonstrates fairness and equity in selection, compensation, benefits and personal growth. This is as much a critical business strategy for us as it is a reflection of our commitment to equal opportunity. We believe the best way to serve our diverse member base is by maintaining a diverse workforce.
In fact, our associates' ability to understand the challenges of others and identify with unique needs is a large part of what makes us successful in delivering quality health care solutions that deliver the right coverage and value for specific cultural, life-stage and local market groups.
Our commitment to honor and respect those of various backgrounds extends across all areas of our company. It starts with our hiring and staffing practices and is fundamental to how we recognize, support and promote our associates, and equally relevant to the way we build customer alliances and enduring relationships with our business partners and suppliers.
