We focus a lot on our values here at Fallon Health. That’s why a lot of people like to work here, they believe in those values. We get a lot of feedback that they’re not just words on a wall, right? They really see those behaviors and the decisions that we make, how our managers and supervisor treat the employees that work with them and by focusing on those values—innovation, accountability it fosters an environment of learning and development and we’ve also always seen that as important. HR’s a very valued function at this organization. Human Resources sits at the executive table, not at all organizations. I will only work at an HR organization where they have a seat where the decisions are made because it just shows the value of people.
