Perks and Programs

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

  • Learning and Development Programs: OhioHealth continuously explores innovative resources and methods to support and facilitate learning and development and, in doing so, uphold our high standard for clinical proficiency, improve the patient experience, promote research and innovation and, ultimately, remain competitive in the local and national healthcare market by retaining top talent. Even more, we believe that investing in and supporting the careers and personal development of our associates keeps them engaged and enriches our culture and workplace. OhioHealth has a robust learning and development offering supported by OhioHealth Leadership Academy; OhioHealth Learning, a Level I Comprehensive Educational Institute accredited by the American College of Surgeons that features state-of-the-art technology for simulation and scenario-based education; Organization Effectiveness, OhioHealth University, relationships with colleagues and universities, and tuition reimbursement.
  • OhioHealthy Move + Improve: OhioHealth associates and spouses/same-sex domestic partners participating in our OhioHealthy Medical Plan and the Opt-in to Wellness Program can earn rewards for living a healthier lifestyle through OhioHealthy Move + Improve Powered by Virgin Pulse. Individuals earn HealthMiles by tracking their steps and what they eat and by setting goals through their MyFitnessPal mobile app. By participating, associates and their covered spouses/same-sex domestic partners each have the opportunity to earn up to $500 annually.
  • Fitness Rewards: Exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, and we want to make it easy and offer rewards for associates to focus on fitness by offering OhioHealth associates free membership to our state-of-the-art fitness centers. Our OhioHealthy Fitness Rewards Program is available to associates through the OhioHealthy Medical Plan and Opt-in to Wellness program. Under the plan, OhioHealth will reimburse associates up to 100% who are paying members at these facilities if they achieve certain attendance goals. OhioHealthy Fitness Consultations. OhioHealthy Medical Plan participants are eligible for three individualized appointments per year with a certified exercise physiologist or athletic trainer at no additional cost. This consultation includes a fitness assessment and an individualized exercise program.
  • Staff & Management Bonus: We measure success at OhioHealth using our Balanced Scorecard, which is focused on the four key areas of quality, service, culture and financial performance. Through our staff and management bonus programs, we make sure associates are rewarded for positive performance. Our Staff Bonus Program is based on Balanced Scorecard performance results for the year and hours worked. Our Management Bonus Program is based on Balanced Scorecard results and annual performance reviews, which rate managers and directors both on the WHAT (the results achieved) and the HOW (how the leader demonstrated OhioHealth leadership competencies and OhioHealth values of Integrity, Compassion, Excellence and Stewardship, in achieving the results).
  • Parenting Perks: OhioHealth has programs for our associates who are expectant parents or adopting a child. Pregnancy Perks. Provides preferred parking; tote bag; breast-pump kit; lactation consultants; a discount on any family, birth education, baby-care or breastfeeding preparation class; and a baby sling or nursing pillow. Lactation rooms are available for breast-feeding mothers. Partners in Pregnancy. Provides guidance on such topics as pregnancy basics, the importance of eating healthy for the mother and infant, preparing the home for a newborn, risk factors, and tips for new dads. By participating in this program, associates can earn a reward of an additional $100 deposit in their Medical Plan’s Health Reimbursement Account. OhioHealth also offers paid parental leave for new mothers, fathers and adoptive parents.
  • Perks Place: OhioHealth has partnered with Beneplace to offer our associates, Perks Place, a top-notch associate discount program. This program features exclusive offers for OhioHealth associates all in one place. Perks Place is a complete source for discounts on entertainment, electronics, automotive, dining, grocery and much more that is available to all OhioHealth associates. The site offers many national providers and services as well as some of the local providers and services that you are used to seeing.
  • Unique Gifts of Thanks: OhioHealth recognizes our associates in unique and unexpected ways. Over the years we have done this by giving a special gift at unexpected times, such as: • Meijer Gift cards of up to $300 • Summer relax and enjoy your family gift packs • Box full of fortune cookies — each reflecting a behavioral attribute from the OhioHealth Values Blueprint. A select number of fortune cookie boxes included an extra surprise — a “coupon” to redeem a gift card of the recipient’s choice. • A free pair of athletic shoes in appreciation for associates’ contributions throughout the course of the year that helped earn us numerous awards for leadership and quality in healthcare, as well as to celebrate 10 years of OhioHealthy.
  • Mission Matters: Community service is an important part of the OhioHealth mission. Our associates want to be involved in the community — something we not only encourage, we also support with resources and information. Mission Matters is a tool available through eSource, our associate intranet, where associates can explore and select from a wide array of opportunities to volunteer, recommend new causes and volunteer opportunities, set goals, sign up for alerts and track volunteer hours. In addition, associates receive time off with pay to participate in corporate-sponsored community events and activities.
  • Celebration Events: Celebrating our associates is a big part of OhioHealth’s caring culture through a number of programs to build trust and camaraderie, and instill pride and a sense of family across OhioHealth. Our key celebratory events include these annual celebrations: • Prism Awards. The highest honor presented to associates and physicians through a program of food, recognition and celebration. • Shopping Trip. Associates who reach five-year milestone anniversaries (20 - 50 years) are honored and treated like “stars for the day,” kicked off by a breakfast and morning of shopping and recognition luncheon. • Associate Celebrations. Our Associate Celebrations recognize associates for their accomplishments and dedication with a complimentary meal and celebrations at our care sites.
  • Concierge Service: Our concierge program, Best-Upon-Request, offers OhioHealth associates in central Ohio a range of services at no charge (except mileage). Associates at all levels of our organization use the service for such tasks as grocery shopping, vacation research, waiting at home for a repair person or sending holiday cards. A Best-Upon-Request newsletter and special marketing piece are posted monthly on eSource, our associate intranet, promoting services associates may need and giving them specific ideas during a particular time of the year — for example, Father’s Day. From July 1, 2015 through May 2016, more than 1,600 associates took advantage of Best-Upon-Request.

How to Get Hired

We asked OhioHealth 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 strive to hire associates who have great skills and understand and embrace our culture. We seek out candidates who can share personal experiences and exhibit behaviors that exemplify our core values of integrity, excellence, stewardship and compassion — all of which help ensure a good culture fit at OhioHealth. Specific characteristics we look for in people are those who strive for excellence, embrace innovation and change, and hold themselves accountable. These individuals are humble, courteous and respectful, are able to connect with others and demonstrate a willingness to build trusting relationships. They are collaborative, support each other, communicate openly and honestly, are good listeners, seek to understand the needs of others, and value the uniqueness and differences in others. Finally, people who share in our spirit of giving back to the community, and are committed to their own health and wellness are an especially great fit for OhioHealth. 

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

OhioHealth associates are passionate in both heart and mind about our mission and serving patients and each other with compassion and excellence. They approach their work as a calling more than a job, understanding that compassion is every bit as important to the patient experience as expertise and technical skills. Candidates will stand out to OhioHealth when they can point to experiences and accomplishments both in and out of the workplace that exhibit our core values and demonstrate they can meet job expectations. Those who have a strong sense of self-awareness and can articulate not only their strengths but also areas where they might need development and growth are viewed as having strong potential. In a large organization such as ours, candidates can also stand out by networking and making connections with individuals who work in their areas of interest, whether through professional organizations, personal outreach or even volunteer opportunities. 

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

Staff nurses (RNs) for specialty areas, such as the Operating Room and Critical Care, are always in high demand. We also continue to seek out individuals to work in ancillary support areas, such as Pharmacy and Laboratory — specifically, board-certified pharmacy technicians, certified pharmacy techs and medical technologists. The role of medical assistant is critical to the success of our physician practice groups and in high demand locally. We’re also looking for leaders with strong experience in multi-site and matrix organizations, organizational integration and change management. As with all roles, we are looking for individuals who are strong culture fits, represent our core values and who look for innovative and patient-focused work solutions.

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

Visit the OhioHealth career website at to review job openings and apply for positions of interest. We encourage candidates to focus their job search versus applying for all jobs for which they believe they might be qualified. If contacted for an interview, learning as much as possible about the organization and being prepared with specific questions always reflects well on the candidate.
