We’re incredibly proud of the work-life flow at Magellan Health.
We believe work and life should be in unison, singing the same song. Happy people are more productive, and we trust our people to get the job done in the most effective way that makes them happy. We understand that there are times when work needs to fit in around family and friends, and vice versa, but with a little give and take and some great technology, everything flows.
Great companies are defined by great people. It’s hard work that makes the difference, not where it gets done. Our people enjoy a tremendous level of flexibility. They’re trusted to do the right thing, and as conscientious professionals they never fail to deliver. It’s this flow that keeps us energized and productive, and always willing to go that little bit further to help our members.
At Magellan Health, 10,000 people wake up every day determined to help our members. We do this by connecting behavioral, physical, pharmacy and social needs into a complete picture of care that’s personalized, coordinated and cost-effective. By turning fragmented care into focused care, we empower 1 in 10 Americans to lead healthier, more vibrant lives.
My early adulthood was defined by a tremendous amount of loss and pain. For years, I was in a dark abyss, doubtful I would ever summon the strength to pull out of it. When I did, there was a sense of urgency to make a difference in the lives of others and leave this world better than how I found it. Initially, finding a work life that aligned with my focus felt impossible. Working for a large corporation and being able to live out my purpose? Yeah, right.
And, yet, that is exactly what I found at Magellan—a greater purpose.
Everything I do ties back to Magellan’s massive transformative purpose to lead humanity to healthy, vibrant lives. I see that purpose manifest in our work helping our members recover from serious physical or behavioral health conditions.
I’ve seen a man who had previously attempted suicide find hope, make friends and discover connection in a faith community; I’ve seen a woman trade in a life of continuous relapse for one of stability; I’ve seen a young person struggling with his identity to link to a LQBTQ+ support group and re-enroll into school. I’ve seen countless member’s lives changed for the better. These individuals faced physical or behavioral health challenges which improved when we identified what really mattered to them and helped them attain these things. When I reflect on seeing triumphs such as these, I can’t help but think of Gary.
I met Gary right before he saw his new apartment for the first time. That’s all he ever wanted—stable housing. We set out to get it for him. Our care coordination health guide found Gary an apartment and our recovery support navigator worked with him to prepare his transition from homelessness. During the fifteen years leading up to this moment, Gary’s life was defined by addiction, it disconnected him from his daughter and caused heartache for his mother who always picked him up after he had relapsed.
As Gary showed me around his apartment, pointing out with pride where he would make his coffee in the mornings and where he would do his daily meditation, it was hard to believe his past was ridden with darkness. The man before me spoke excitedly about being able to entertain friends and cook meals for himself. We were part of that.
Gary’s story is just one among many that have changed the way I view my work. Helping someone get their life back on track brings me a deep sense of purposeful satisfaction that is hard to understand unless you’ve experienced it firsthand.
It’s what we do at Magellan. I’m proud to be a part of that and we’d like you to be part of that too. Join us.
When tragedy strikes, we first focus on the epicenter—the school where the shooting took place, the family who experienced loss in a natural disaster, the addict who has relapsed. As time goes on, victims far from the epicenter feel the ripple effect of the tragedy and need support.
At Magellan, we know that when tragedy strikes, the entire community is affected. That’s why we operate from every angle, during and long after crisis situations, to make sure no one is left behind.
The Joplin tornado, Sandy Hook school shooting, and opioid epidemic are just three crises where we intervened, and in turn, showcased our community wide approach to helping those in need.
We invite you to browse through this short series of stories and if these stories resonate with you, and you are looking for meaningful work with people who care, we invite you to join us.
