None that I can think of

Our diverse organization shares one common goal: to greatly improve the lives and health of others. You will work with a high-energy and passionate team that recognizes each person for their unique experience and contributions. We recognize your work and reward you for it with growth and programs that support your needs. Join us and you’ll be part of a culture that prioritizes Caring. Connecting. Growing together.

 A Better Way To Think   We are unified in our goal to build a health care system that works better for all those we serve. Every day, we are: fostering an environment that encourages creativity and risk-taking; constantly learning while being curious and unafraid to fail; respectfully challenging the status-quo; and setting ambitious goals, while providing the resources to achieve them.

  A Better Way To Care   We constantly strive to deliver high-quality, superior results, that make a difference. Putting the customer first, and honoring the diversity of talents and insights of our colleagues, we are always searching for better ways to care, for the people, organizations and communities we serve.

A Better Way To Succeed   We expect a high level of performance from ourselves and our partners. Our goal is nothing short of transforming health care. We take it, and building the team of really bright people that make it happen, seriously. We empower each other - value our diversity; celebrate and reward our success; learn from our mistakes; and create relationships that transform peoples' lives.

  We Express Our UnitedHealth Group Culture By: Living our Values, through our Behaviors.

  • Integrity - We honor our commitments and never compromise on ethics by speaking the truth and delivering on our promises.
  • Compassion - We walk in the shoes of the people we serve by actively listening, feeling genuine empathy and being an advocate for those we serve. 
  • Relationships - We build trust through collaboration by helping others achieve their goals and approaching all people with respect, humility, confidence and energy.
  • Innovation - We invent the future while learning from the past through encouraging and investing in new ideas as well as being practical and purposeful in those we serve. 
  • Performance - We demonstrate excellence in everything we do by being accountable and responsible.
