Perks and Programs

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

  • Employee Celebrations: Each year Kettering Health Network celebrates National Hospital Week to honor and thank employees. We host celebrations at each campus, as well as a network-wide contests and raffles. In 2017, we had smoothies, popcorn and sunglasses delivered to our offsite locations to ensure they were included in the celebration. In August and September, each campus holds an employee picnic. These are held during all three shifts, and employees and volunteers are encouraged to attend for a free meal, music, and camaraderie. During the holidays, each hospital hosts an open house for employees and families featuring music, food, and photos with Santa. We also offer free on-site concierge gift-wrapping for employees.
  • Employee Assistance Funds: Kettering Health Network created the Employee Assistance Fund to provide financial aid to fellow employees who are facing an immediate financial crisis. 100% of the employee-donated funds go toward aiding employees in need. Since 1989, employees have received over $1 million in emergency grants and small, no-interest loans.
  • Employee Assistance Program: The Employee Assistance Program benefits are offered to employees and their families at no charge. Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, services include counseling, financial guidance, and legal assistance. In addition, professional support and expert advice on coaching and managing the workplace is also provided.
  • Mission Trips: Kettering Health Network offers employees the opportunity to participate in mission trips that extend to other countries and continents, furthering the mission of the organization. The network supports employees participation in trips by matching paid time off hours 1-to-1 up to 20 hours per year to support employees who wish to volunteer their time to help those in need.
  • Affinity Groups: Kettering Health Network offers a number of diversity initiatives targeting specific populations. One example is INSPIRE, our women’s affinity group, which offers professional development and education specifically for females within our organization. INSPIRE supports a group of over 500 female managers, directors, and physicians, providing support and encouragement through education, networking opportunities, and a soon-to-be-launched formalized mentoring program. Another example of a KHN affinity group is our Young Professionals. The Young Professionals group is designed to support and encourage young leaders, specifically part of generation Y, within KHN. In support of generational diversity, we recognize that each generation brings different strengths to the workplace and the Young Professional group aims to encourage this younger group, through personal and professional development and networking opportunities.
  • Discount Program: Employees can gain access to hundreds of local and national discounts with our employee discount program through Abenity, including hotels, gyms, restaurants, movie theaters, retailers, theme parks, concerts, and more. 86% of our workforce has registered for the program.

How to Get Hired

We asked Kettering Health Network 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?

The success of a prospective team-member begins with their desire to support the sacred work of Kettering Health Network through an on-going demonstration of compassion towards others, competency in their trade, and ability to use sound judgement and emotional intelligence in stressful situations. They possess a willingness to be collaborative and to build strong relationships with co-workers, physicians, other leaders in the organization, community members, patients, and their families. This team-member is not seeking to work a job; rather, they are answering a call to care for others, truly embodying Kettering Health Network’s mission and the values that support it.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Kettering Health Network pays close attention to referrals received from current high-performing team-members, so it is important for candidates to maximize their internal relationships and connect with the organization through various networking channels. In addition to merely completing an online employment application, prospective team-members should be prepared to review, revise, and submit a clear, concise, and updated resume. In addition, prospective team-members can also anticipate various assessments, phone screening, and interviews based on the position to which they are interested. Prospective team-members may also find us in attendance at many local and national career fairs.   

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

Due to the many services that Kettering Health Network provides, our organization consistently has a wide variety of open positions, including jobs in nutritional services, finance, nursing, and allied health (rehab therapy, phlebotomy, social work, imaging tech, etc.) We focus heavily on hiring various clinical professionals, including nurses, medical technologists, surgical technologists, and medical assistants. While we prefer candidates to have experience, we do provide training and orientation in all areas. With our continued growth, we also will focus on hiring leaders with strategic vision to help guide and implement various leadership development initiatives. We seek these leaders from our internal talent pool, as well as through other external sources.

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

Candidates should research and learn about Kettering Health Network’s history and the legacy of Charles F. Kettering’s family. They should familiarize themselves with our mission, vision, and values—the foundation upon which we build our strategies. This will give candidates insight into our culture and help them understand the concept of sacred work and being “called to care.” Kettering Health Network employees are actively involved in local community events, which means prospective job candidates have opportunities to network with them and learn more about the organization. Students who are completing clinical rotations in our facilities have a unique opportunity to interact with managers and staff, as well as gain real-life experience for a future career. We also provide opportunities through planned site visits, observations, and internships. Most importantly, interested candidates should visit our recruitment job board at to view open positions and begin the application process.
