A Culture of Well-Being in Action
We don’t just help others create cultures of well-being – we live one ourselves. It’s our way of showing our commitment to health and well-being, and of saying “thanks” to our employees for their hard work in making us successful. And it’s one of the reasons the American Heart Association designated us as a Fit & Friendly workplace in 2014 and 2015, and our Indianapolis office was named one of the Top Workplaces of Central Indiana 2016.
Our employees can take advantage of every aspect of our solution – from challenges to coaching and more. This helps us not only support our employees but keep a crystal-clear focus on the consumer experience and the reason well-being is so important.
A Well-Being Workplace
We’re proud of the way our workspaces facilitate a healthy lifestyle. Onsite workout facilities and showers, mommy rooms, and standing and treadmill desks are just some of the features our employees enjoy. Free coffee, lattes, gourmet teas, fresh daily fruit and healthy snacks add to the mix. Walking meetings are a common way of getting work done while getting the blood flowing.
WebMD places a high value on recognizing our employees, their leadership and their performance. We have several programs in place to ensure this happens: peer-to-peer recognition, employee appreciation days, department recognition and more.
Our Portland headquarters is nestled among the city’s best restaurants and shops, in a historic former Montgomery Ward building. Beautifully restored art deco architecture and design complement a modern, light-filled interior.
Conveniently located on the north side of Indianapolis, our coaching operation puts employees right in the middle of some of the best shopping the state has to offer.
A few hours north of Portland is our Seattle office, where some of our technology gurus work their magic. The office provides spectacular views of Puget Sound and Mt. Rainier, and is only steps away from the International District, Pioneer Square and CenturyLink Field.
