It's all about innovation

We’re leaders in the future of health services. For us, the future is in finding innovative ways to improve health outcomes for our members and communities. We do that through the use of new technology, improving access to care, breakthrough research, funding start-ups, and through good, old-fashioned person-to-person care.

At Harvard Pilgrim, we understand that the next big idea can come from anyone. We’re fostering an environment where every person across the organization can learn new things outside of their day-to-day job and contribute to our success. Here, you’re not defined by your job title—you are that and much, much more.

what it's like to work here

The spirit of improving others’ lives is who we are and if we’re not spending our time trying to improve healthcare for our members, we’re working for the good of the community around us, or working for the good of the person sitting next to us.

Community service is a cornerstone of our culture

Service is not just an exercise here. Multiple times a year, we’re out serving alongside the leadership of the organization. And while we’re helping others improve their situations, we’re also building unique and special skills ourselves—leadership, teamwork, compassion and care. And the best part is employees can volunteer at organizations they feel passionate about!

The Harvard Pilgrim Foundation

It’s not uncommon to hear employees talk about how the service aspect of the Harvard Pilgrim culture is the most enriching and special part of their job. That focus on service helps us to better understand and work successfully with many different populations—which is the goal of healthcare.

Driven by the mission of the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation and the passion of our employees, Harvard Pilgrim has a long tradition of supporting organizations and causes in the cities, towns and neighborhoods we serve. Community health centers, youth development programs, human service organizations, schools, shelters, prevention programs — the list is long and varied.

“Volunteerism is not extra credit here. It’s like showing up for work. Our focus on community through service days and volunteer benefits really sets us apart as an organization.”

Scott Kessloff, Senior Associate General Counsel, Wellesley With Harvard Pilgrim: 26 years

“We have a great team in our office and it’s like being with family. Everyone is comfortable and gets along. Harvard Pilgrim has a great culture, great benefits, and great work-life balance. I’m a single mom and I can tweak my hours or leave early to get my son to a game. As long as your work is done, you can be a little bit flexible.”

Mary Allain, Office Manager, Worcester 5 years with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care

“I absolutely LOVE what I do! When I hang up the phone I’m so excited that I’ve been able to help someone. That’s us, a non-profit family where everyone helps everyone else out. A place where upper level management knows who you are and they really listen.”
