Humana’s purpose-driven culture drives engagement at the company, inspiring and aligning the whole organization around a shared vision of lifelong well-being, according to Tim State, Senior Vice President, Associate Health & Well-being.
Tim recently spoke with The Human Capital Institute (HCI) for its Nine-To-Thrive Podcast, which features leading HR practitioners — as well as authors, academics and other thought-leaders — who offer insights on “everything from talent acquisition and analytics to engagement, retention, and development.”
Tim said having a shared vision – like Humana’s Bold Goal – can help employees better connect with their work and brings clarity and energy to their roles. By taking a whole-person approach to well-being, and meeting people where they are on their own health journeys, Humana has created a vibrant social movement aligned with the Bold Goal. Experiences like the upcoming 100 Day Dash fuel that movement.
“Roughly 90 percent of our employees say that Humana’s purpose and our Bold Goal inspires them,” Tim said. “So that’s pretty tremendous in its ability to motivate a sense of optimism among the team and a sense of commitment to what we’re doing. It’s that kind of alignment and inspiration that will show up in the little things that our teammates do every single day on behalf of those that we serve.”
In the podcast, Tim shares his passion for well-being in the workplace and describes how it drives human and organizational performance.
HCI describes the conversation like this: “When your company is packed with purpose, it makes a real difference in the workday, and in employees’ lives after office hours. A purpose-driven organization makes great business decisions, attracts and retains the best people, and provides top service to the customers and communities it serves.”
