Medcor Culture, Philosophy and Values
Medcor embraces a set of simple, interconnected practices that everyone can tailor to their own life and work. It reminds us of what we often forget when we’re busy, stressed out, and self-absorbed. We transcend our values through the ongoing Better@Medcor campaign, encouraging our advocates to make a conscious choice to practice our values (listed below), celebrate and recognize each other via our peer recognition program, and support one another during tough times. Medcor realized the fact that a successful organization, while championed by the executives, must first be continuously driven by the employees themselves and thus most Better@Medcor programs are suggested and implemented by our associates. Here is what we practice and believe:
Be There! Think about how good it feels when someone gives you her or his undivided attention. By contrast, think about how it feels when someone barely looks at you. To really be there for another person – whether that person is a customer, co-worker, family member or friend – has a powerful effect.
Choose Your Attitude! You consistently, whether you want to or not, choose your attitude. Your attitude not only affects you but everyone with whom you come in contact. Attitudes, whether they are helpful or hurtful, spread like viruses through offices, clinics, and homes. Celebrate each day by making the best of every moment.
Play! Playing at work creates an atmosphere that makes your job and the workplace more enjoyable. Play is a spirit that is more than just fun; it is an invitation to lightheartedness. It energizes the creativity and problem-solving abilities within you.
Make Their Day! Recognition can be a big production – flowers, candy, decorating your co-workers’ offices for their birthdays – but it doesn’t have to be. It might be as simple as holding open a door for someone whose arms are full, or telling a co-worker from your heart how much you appreciate them. Make their day is easier when you understand that in every moment lies the possibility to make a positive impact on anyone you meet.
Better Me! Medcor is committed to the well-being of our associates, who are our greatest asset. We want you to enjoy the benefits of good health in every aspect of your life. Better Me is a wellness plan program that is entirely voluntary. This program includes risk assessments, health screenings, ongoing education, fitness, nutrition, coaching, health insurance discounts, and other services designed to help you improve your personal health.
Better Us! Practicing our values creates the work environment that has made Medcor a fun and rewarding place to work. At Medcor, you are a part of a great team that retains its entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to quality, service, and innovation. We believe in teamwork and helping one another, which in turn ensures the success of our organization as a whole and empowers our associates to grow and succeed in their careers with Medcor.
Some of the things that are Better@Medcor include: On-site fitness facility – enjoy a workout before work, during lunch, or after work. We have an on-site wellness manager and assistant to help you reach your wellness goals! We offer 20-minute workout sessions during the day, and fun activities throughout the year, such as participating in 5Ks, helping with the Medcor garden, or playing volleyball or softball during the summer!
