Perks and Programs

We asked DaVita Inc. to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

The “College Coach” program offers educational support, including access to essay reviews, college lists, financial webinars, one-on-one mentoring and more. Or, if an employee has a child who needs extra help, they have access to a support network with “Bright Horizons Special Needs,” which is available to help employees with action plans, school communications, troubleshooting and progress tracking.

At the heart of the two-day program, held in various locations across the nation 11 times per year, is a focus on becoming better human beings by giving teammates exercises to reflect on themselves, and how they show up for others. Academy also allows teammates to network with each other, meet and interact with senior leaders, ask questions and give feedback without censor.

How to Get Hired

We asked DaVita Inc. 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?

At DaVita, there is a clearly-defined culture that permeates all aspects of the workplace. It’s rooted in an unwavering mindset: DaVita is a community first and a company second. So for an employee to be a good cultural fit, it means that they’re willing to not only strive to be good at their job, but also to also take a whole-person approach to improvement. DaVita wants their employees to better themselves through resources for professional and personal support, and ultimately, spread ripples of growth into their own communities outside of work.  

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

DaVita strongly believes in the power that diversity brings to a company. So while we do try to bring new team members who are receptive to our community model and core values (Service Excellence, Integrity, Team, Continuous, Improvement, Accountability, Fulfillment and Fun), DaVita consistently strives to hire people from as many different backgrounds and with as many different perspectives at possible.

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