Perks and Programs

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

  • Core Financial Wellness: Martin's Point believes that employee wellness also extends to financial health. We offer and pay for an online financial wellness class to help employees better budget their money and plan their finances for the long term. Participants (100 each year) have collectively reduced their debt by nearly 25%!
  • Birthday Off: Our employees take the cake! We honor each employee's birthday by giving them a paid day off to celebrate themselves. Many of our new employees are excited to learn about this benefit.
  • Thanksgiving Pie: At Martin's Point one of our most valued traditions is Pie Day. The Tuesday before Thanksgiving, pie trucks arrive at each location and employees flock to select their favorite pie for their holiday table. This event has become a core part of our culture and people talk about it and look forward to it all year long.
  • Travel Medicine & Assistance: Whether it's a short hop to Paris or trek across the Himalayas, our employees are able to get a consultation with a Travel Medicine Specialist at two of our primary health care centers. Services help prospective travelers understand the health risks in their destination countries and get the vaccines and medication needed to stay as healthy as possible. We also offer world-wide medical assistance for emergencies while traveling.
  • Volunteer Time Off: We provide every employee with three paid days to volunteer in their local communities, which is quite meaningful to our employees and to the communities we serve. This benefit allows employees to use time to do what means the most to them; the spectrum runs from volunteering at an animal shelter to serving on a Board to working in a soup kitchen. Our total number of documented volunteer hours in 2016 was 1,792!
  • Onsite Fitness Center & Gym Reimbursement: We have a robust onsite gym called Nautical Mile, located in a premiere location (overlooking the ocean) at our headquarters. For those employees not in the Portland area we have reimbursement programs for local gyms.
  • Earned Time Donation Bank: Our Earned Time Donation bank is an opportunity for our employees to give to their colleagues in times of need. Under this program, individuals can donate unused time to a bank of hours that is available to employees who need help with an unforeseen need or crisis. All the employee in need has to do is complete a simple form requesting assistance and submit it to Human Resources.
  • Employee Experience Team: The Employee Experience Team is an employee led group that fosters an environment of trust, recognition and care. The two primary committees that make up this team are the Employee Appreciation Committee and the Community Connections Team. The committees are involved in many activities including our Thanksgiving Pie Day, summer ice cream truck visits to each of our locations, service nominations and awards, annual holiday party, spirit week, giving campaign, food drives, encouraging use of the Volunteer Time Off benefit, and supporting community involvement. These committees create traditions and programs that make Martin's Point Health Care a special and unique place to work.
  • Summer Appreciation BBQs: Maine and New Hampshire summers are short and we make the most of them! Each summer our Support Services department travels to each site to personally provide, cook and serve a delicious BBQ to all employees at that location. This serves as an opportunity to show appreciation and create a venue to enhance camaraderie.
  • Employee Development - Training and Tuition Reimbursement: We believe strongly in employee development, and offer both internal and external opportunities. We have a robust internal Engagement and Learning program, with four full time professional positions. We offer classes that are open to the entire employee community, as well as those geared to people leaders, including Foundations of Leadership, a comprehensive leadership development program. Our most popular internal program is focused on Communicating with Different Styles. In addition, we have a very generous tuition reimbursement program, in which employees can get reimbursed up to $5,250/year for college classes; for 2015 and 2016, we paid out over $350,000!

How to Get Hired

We asked Martin's Point Health Care 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?

Our values are very important to us at Martin's Point : We HELP each other We act as OWNERS of the business We TAKE CARE of ourselves We are always LEARNING better ways to do things We TRUST each other And we have FUN doing it! We hire for cultural fit as well as technical ability. If a candidate is able to demonstrate or share experiences that connect in a meaningful way to our values, we can tell that they will be a great fit for our company. In addition to our values, we look for people who are passionate about our mission, demonstrate strong listening skills, engage in conversation, and have an overall positive outlook. Finally, we seek employees who are connected to the community with a desire to serve and make a difference.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

It’s important to understand who we are, perhaps by sharing a personal story about an experience with Martin's Point showing excitement and energy! An example comes from Bud, one of our Patient Service Representatives at our health center in Gorham, Maine. When asked why he joined Martin’s Point, he said, “I was a patient here first, and I saw how you treated people.  That experience made me want to come and work here.” Bud is now enjoying a second career with patients at Martin’s Point, following many years of work in education. Other employees come to us with creative proposals that speak volumes about their priorities and commitment to service. One of our doctors in Portland wanted to make sure that he would be able to work flexible hours so that he could volunteer weekly in the local school system.

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

We are focusing on our roles that have direct customer contact. We are looking for people who can build trust, offer hope, act as a guide and demonstrate caring for the people we serve in roles like our Patient Service and Member Service areas. We are also focused on Medical Assistants and Providers (physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants). We know our people are our differentiator and we need people who really care for people in these roles.

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

Interested candidates can find good information about our organization on our website. This year, we are refreshing our Careers section and enhancing our technology to create a better candidate experience in hopes to provide additional resources to quickly answer questions. Candidates are encouraged to take the time to understand "who" we are, what we value, and our involvement in the community. Martin's Point employees have a high level of pride; we encourage interested candidates to reach out to us to find out more about our organization. They may also contact our HR Service Center, or visit us at a local job fair. Internal candidates can reach out to their designated recruiter to learn more about the positions and next steps. We also encourage job shadowing so that candidates get a sense of whether the job and the environment will be a good fit for them.
