The Culture at Centene
Placing an Emphasis on Giving Back
Giving back is a big part of the culture at Centene. By partnering with the National Urban League, Centene helps empower communities and changes lives. The Urban League is able to change the health of communities. In addition, Centene partnered with the Urban League to open the Community Empowerment Center in 2017 during the league's annual conference. The center is home to the Save Our Sons workforce and jobs training program.
As part of the partnership with UnidosUS, Centene was able to bring the largest Hispanic annual conference to the U.S. for a tour. The company's whole health subsidiary, Envolve Health, exhibited the Path to Health and Wellness during the tour, allowing visitors to take part in a variety of health services and programs. The subsidiary even provided free vision and dental screenings for hundreds of people at the conference.
Additionally, Centene and Envolve Health partners with the Pro Football Hall of Fame on the Strong Youth Strong Communities initiative. Through this initiative, young people can identify how to address many issues they face every day. Centene invests in today's youth as a way to impact current and future communities. The youth that goes through this program learn life skills and are empowered by leadership to find their true potential.
The company also partners with Beyond Differences to support the No One Eats Alone initiative to address the growing problem among middle-school students. The program introduces students to role-play exercises to help them break down the barriers that are isolating them socially. Students are encouraged to eat lunch with other students that they don't normally sit with during lunchtime.
When you work at Centene you get to be apart of all of this. Not only do you get to help shape the healthcare industry in your everyday work, but you also get to help those in need especially the youth of today.
