At Castlight Health, our culture means everything. Not only does it define who we are, but it prioritizes our path and drives us to succeed.
Our people are everything. It’s obvious, but without them, we don’t have a company and we can’t deliver on our promise to improve healthcare and wellbeing for millions of Americans. Just saying we’re “One Team” isn’t enough though. We need to walk the talk, and prioritize retaining, developing and caring for our employees.
Here are just some of the ways we do that:
Benefits: We offer competitive salaries, fully-paid healthcare premiums, gym membership discounts,generous paid time off, a liberal office cell phone policy and well-stocked office kitchens. But, benefits are only a part of a healthy (and happy) employee team.
Career growth: We encourage employees to participate in career-development training and we offer many courses to enable their personal growth. When someone feels up for a new challenge, we are completely open to discussing intra-company moves–no one should be shy about wanting to try new roles. Many of our managers and leaders have been promoted from within–we believe in the talent within our doors. And, we offer comprehensive management training because all employees deserve top-quality managers.
Diversity: We celebrate all our employees and embrace their differences. We participate in the San Francisco Pride Parade with a whole lot of hoopla. We throw a great Diwali party. Many of our top leaders are women. Here, people come as they are!
Team building (and fun): We sponsor team-building and entertainment activities, from movie nights to BBQs, sporting events, and employee recognition parties. And of course, we throw a fantastic holiday party. Our monthly all-hands meetings even feature raffle prizes, because who doesn’t like winning?
On a Mission
When running a business, it’s not enough to have the best and most satisfied employees (although that goes a long way). We all need to unite around a common mission that we truly, deeply believe in. Since our founding, we have been driven by a strong purpose to help people make the best decisions for their health and to help companies make the most of their health benefits.
Making Things Happen
The final piece of our culture “puzzle” is to unite our people, on their common mission, to deliver on its promise. Every individual within Castlight contributes to helping us meet our goals. From our administrative staff, to our healthcare wonks, to our product designers, and engineers, we all work together to offer the best products possible.
The result: we offer the only health benefits platform that combines total well-being capabilities, healthcare decision-support tools, and a personalized benefits hub. Our team is making things happen for the better.
