“Doing well is the result of doing good” was said by Ralph Waldo Emerson in the 19th century about capitalism. I believe strongly in this philosophy and have looked to it to guide me when facing the harder decisions. If you do the right thing today, it will, in the end, deliver the best long-lasting result.
Humana is a Jive customer who practices this approach. With millions of customers and billions of dollars in sales, the world’s leading health and well-being company puts its money where its heart is. On tough issues like hurricane and flood relief to supporting homeless veterans, Humana gives back again and again and values people at the core. Earlier this year, the Human Rights Campaign recognized Humana as one of the best workplaces for LGBTQ equality in its annual Corporate Equality Index.
One of the ways Humana is able to champion its humanitarian efforts is by utilizing a combination of several Jive-powered internal and external communities to build relationships and trust between the people who make it all happen: employees, partners and their customers. Mike Bellissimo, enterprise vice president at Humana, explained at our recent Jive Executive Advisory Board meeting, “Communities establish trust, and that trust enables partnership.”
Humana supports employees with an interactive intranet, called “Fuse,” to bring thousands of dispersed, diverse associates together to collaborate, find content and share expertise, no matter where they are. “They know they can ask questions. They know that they can find the solutions they need,” says Humana Digital Innovation Manager Sabrina Deitch. “Jive is, for us, the ability to connect the right people, the right content at the right time, all through one single front door no matter what their location may be.”
Humana employees work hard to prove every day that doing good and doing well go hand in hand. Thank you, Humana team, for our partnership in innovation and good!
