Community On The inside
It all starts with connections. The supportive network of colleagues, an accessible leadership team, and an understanding of the mission of the organization are just some of the important connections that make working at Harvard Pilgrim such a rewarding experience. It’s why so many of our people have made a long-term investment in their careers here and have been rewarded with the stability to build a meaningful path for themselves.
Community On The Outside
Through it all, we never lose sight of the community we serve. With over one million members, we understand the pressing needs that exist in our communities. We provide the tools, training and volunteer opportunities that not only truly make a difference but also help us to create solutions for the diverse marketplace that we serve.
Here are just a few of the many volunteer efforts that make Harvard Pilgrim the 7th most charitable company in Massachusetts, according to the Boston Business Journal:
• Every employee is eligible for a $500 mini-grant, that they donate to a charity of their choice. Last year, employees donated $500,000 in these mini-grants to local communities.
• Employees are given opportunities to volunteer either with their Harvard Pilgrim colleagues or at a charity of their own choice.
• As a Cradles to Crayons Ready for School sponsor, Harvard Pilgrim offers both philanthropic and employee volunteer support, with many of our departments filling backpacks for schoolchildren with much-needed supplies.
• Our Veggie Mobile in Worcester delivers fresh food to seniors.
• The Harvard Pilgrim Wellesley office has a garden and participates in a Community Supported Agriculture program for employees.
From working to improve schools to helping to reduce childhood obesity, we are proud of our grassroots efforts that help these communities to thrive.
