As a startup, we treat our employees and new hires as partners on a mission to make a long-lasting, positive impact on the healthcare industry. That all starts with a warm welcome on their first day with a company-wide meet and greet. From there, we ensure that they are set up to succeed — we provide them with extensive company training and continued external educational resources for continued development. To foster collaboration and strong employee relationships, we hold regular social Zoom happy hours, conduct internal Lunch and Learn seminars, holiday parties, and frequeintly do employee shout-outs for those individuals who go above and beyond. Furthermore, to ensure that both our employees and their families are holistically supported, we offer a 401K program and 100% employer-sponsored healthcare benefits for our employees and their dependents.
At Alaffia Health, we fundamentally believe that the whole is more valuable than the sum of its individual parts. Further to that point, we believe a diverse team of individuals with various backgrounds, ideologies, and types of training generates the most value. As such, today our employee base is almost 30% people of color, and 33% women, and both company founders are people of color. We consider our diversity to be one of our strengths and are focused on bringing in the best talent from across the United States. We are also proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.
We are at an exciting point in our organization where we are experiencing a period of high growth — headcount grew by almost 50% year-to-date! As such, everyone on our team has the opportunity to quickly advance their careers and gain new skills in a unique healthtech startup environment. Behind all of the technology lies a group of people who are unified and driven to make a positive impact on healthcare through our work. Many of our employees have a personal connection to the issues in our healthcare system that we are working to resolve. We have found that bringing mission-driven people together is a great way to move towards meaningful change and that is what we are all aiming for. If you are looking to work towards a positive change with a group of mission-driven individuals this is the perfect place for you.
