Health Union is the proven, industry leader driving and amplifying social health. As the premier social health company, only Health Union encourages the dynamic, real-time actions people take to find meaningful connections and share information throughout the health journey. The company reaches millions of people through the largest portfolio of condition-specific online health communities (e.g., Migraine.com, MultipleSclerosis.net, LungCancer.net) and health leaders – addressing virtually every condition and providing the information, connection and support they need.
Health Union cares about elevating our people, our community, and the philanthropic and economic growth of our company roots.
From the beginning, Health Union’s mission has always been about helping people with chronic conditions live better. People are the most important aspect of building and sustaining our growing portfolio of condition-specific online health communities. To that end, our philosophy of “meeting people where they are” in our online health communities extends to our culture and the surrounding environment.
As we grow, Health Union’s core values are ingrained in everything we do. They are the key principles that guide not only our online health communities, but also our workplace offerings and environment, the widespread altruism of our people, and the local philanthropic and economic needs of Philadelphia.
Harnessing diverse ideas, backgrounds, and perspectives is critical to continued growth and development. At Health Union, respect for everyone is essential. Listening to our communities and to each other helps us to cultivate an inclusive environment for our employees and for the communities we serve.
Commitment to DEI
At Health Union, diversity is central to our culture and identity. Inclusion has long been an essential part of our organization, as well as the way we recognize, treat, and perceive all experiences and differences. We believe that when people feel respected and included they can be more creative, innovative, and successful.
A sense of community is how we at Health Union inspire and support each other to work, learn, and grow together. Community is what we believe in, how we act, and what we accomplish as a company.
By learning from successes and failures, we experiment, refine, and grow–making excellence the standard Health Union has set as a way we want to think and work every day.
When we communicate with clear goals and intentions, we’re building trust within our communities, with our external partners and clients, and with our employees. Transparency allows us to promote a safe and understanding environment.
The Best Place to Work
To us, the most important part of managing fast growth is maintaining our culture. But don’t just take our word for it: Philly.com, Philadelphia Business Journal, and Inc. Magazine have all named Health Union a “best place to work”–and we take pride in living up to that hype every day.
A Dynamic Environment
We cultivate a fun environment that empowers employees to do their best work surrounded by colleagues who champion each other’s success while we work together towards our mission of helping people live better lives.
A Culture of Learning
We work hard to form close-knit relationships that breed an authentic, respectful culture of teaching and learning including company-wide “lunch and learns”, a structured new hire learning and orientation program, new manager training, and individualized annual professional development budget.
Access to Leadership
We facilitate and encourage frequent opportunities to share feedback and build relationships with our leaders through small group lunches with our CEO and president, company-wide interactive All Hands meetings, listening sessions and surveys, and frequent department and team meetings.
Flexible Work Environment
All team members are encouraged to choose the work location that best suits their work style and personal needs. Between working fully remote or in a hybrid setting out of our Philadelphia office, we strive to foster a collaborative and supportive work environment.
Full-time team members are immediately eligible for comprehensive health benefits with multiple plan options, flexible spending accounts, as well as generous PTO, Summer Fridays, paid holidays, paid parental leave, and paid time off for volunteering. Full-time team members participate in our 401K plan and annual bonus plan.
