Recognizing unique talents and strengths through diversity and inclusion
Novant Health's values include diversity and inclusion because we know that every person is different and is shaped by their unique life experiences. Novant Health realizes that these differences are a strength and enable us to better understand our team members and our patients.
Team member benefits
Diversity is one of the great features of today’s workforce, and having a benefits program that is flexible in order to meet the different needs, concerns and challenges of our workforce is a priority for us. Through work-life benefits, affordable voluntary benefits and services we are striving to meet the changing needs and lifestyle of an increasingly diverse workforce. Our team members are critical to delivering on the mission to deliver remarkable care. We invest in their professional development in many ways, such as mentoring programs, tuition reimbursement and corporate education class offerings, while also keeping an eye on work-life balance and overall well-being.
