The Top Places to Work in PR: Nonprofit Kaiser Permanente


Given its position in the healthcare industry, it’s probably not surprising that Kaiser Permanente offers employees “phenomenal health insurance,” but it also goes above and beyond with unexpected benefits, including a liberal telecommute policy and the option for new mothers to work four days a week—a “loyalty-inspiring” bonus, according to one new mom who works in the nonprofit’s communications department.

In addition to these extras, Kaiser employees are encouraged to exercise and required to volunteer during the work hours, and their compensation is further boosted by weekly professional development courses, biannual reviews and fast-track positions.

As far as the internal culture goes, Kaiser Permanente’s is “diverse,” “inclusive,” “brainy” and “highly democratic”—decisions are often made by committee and consensus. Senior leadership fully supports the organization’s democratic approach to decision making, maintaining open-door policies and team-oriented management styles that focus on growth and professional development.

“Employee engagement is a core part of our organization’s tradition and culture,” says one of Kaiser Permanente’s communications consultants. “We serve our communities regularly, encourage volunteerism throughout the year and have an annual award for those who excel in community service.” PRN
