With the company’s meal card, employees can buy 4 meals and get the fifth meal on BHG. Healthy snacks are also provided to employees throughout the day.
  • Employee Recognition and Bonuses: On a monthly and annual basis, BHG holds company-wide employee recognition and award ceremonies. Company owners present trophies and bonuses to employees who demonstrate the company’s core values and excel at their work. Awards are given for achievements like ‘Impact Player of the Month’ and ‘Department MVP,' as well as superlatives like ‘Athletic All-Star.' Annually, the company's owners recognize 12 recipients for the 'Chairman Awards.’ Chairman Awards include a base pay raise and bonus. The company’s owners specifically choose recipients based on their demonstration of eight key values: PMA (positive mental attitude), results-oriented, leader, team player, runner (takes an idea or initiative and runs with it), doesn’t know the end of the day, personal life sacrifices, and extreme execution.

  • Paid Parental Leave (NEW): BHG's employees who are new parents are given extra paid time off after the birth or adoption of a new child. New mothers will receive four weeks paid time off, and new fathers one week. The paid time off is separate than the employee's annual vacation and PTO allotment.

How to Get Hired

We asked Bankers Healthcare Group for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

We want to speak with candidates that will work hard, add value, embrace our culture, and want to both grow and make a lasting impact on the company!  A candidate who demonstrates a positive mindset towards challenges, both in life and on the job, will be a great fit for BHG. We place a high value on candidates who demonstrate attributes such as PMA (positive mental attitude), loyalty, being a team player, and who are willing to bring ideas and energy to the table. As an employee of BHG, the candidate must be able to learn from mistakes or failed attempts and be ready to try again. Working in teams towards both departmental and company-wide goals at BHG demands an attitude of respect for others and loyalty to our shared purpose.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Simply put—candidates should just be themselves. When you speak to someone on the Talent Acquisition Team, be honest and upfront about your goals and what you’re currently looking for in a job. We take pride in the hiring experience and want it to be a win/win for both BHG and the candidate! Candidates should familiarize themselves with BHG’s products and mission, follow us on social media, and network with us online and off. Internal references are important to us because our current employees have shown the dedication and attitude it takes to get work done. But we are also interested in acquiring the skillsets and experience that will continue to push BHG to the next level. As a sales and customer service-focused organization, we especially appreciate ingenuity, hard work, attention to detail and persistence.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

Innovation and having an open mind to new ideas and viewpoints is crucial at BHG—so we’re always looking for top talent in every department. If we find/speak with someone that would be a great fit, our corporate recruiters will pass it along to the team or hiring manager. In the past, we’ve opened positions that weren’t open because we felt an individual would be a great fit. We want people that who will work hard, add value, embrace our positive family culture, want to grow, and make a lasting impact!
