Improving Teammate Rewards: DaVita Designs Program to Help Meet Teammates' Needs

DENVER, Oct. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- DaVita Kidney Care, a division of DaVita Inc. (NYSE: DVA), a leading provider of kidney care services in the United States, announced the rollout of a new total rewards package, DaVita Rewards, comprising numerous programs and resources to help support teammates inside and outside of work.

"At DaVita, we're committed to creating a special place while giving teammates opportunities for growth. The DaVita Rewards program provides the tools and resources for teammates to live the life they want, personally and professionally," said Louis Efron, vice president of teammate experience for DaVita Kidney Care.

DaVita Rewards is customizable and provides resources for teammates at all stages of their careers and lives. The program was developed with the help of teammate feedback and best practices across the industry. As a result, DaVita is rolling out several programs including family and financial wellbeing resources and will continuously innovate its rewards portfolio. 

Last year, DaVita partnered with Bright Horizons®, a leading provider of high-quality child care, early education, back-up dependent care and educational advisory services, to introduce four work-life solutions to teammates. These solutions are:

  1. Bright Horizons Back-Up Care™: Provides in-center child care or reimbursement for back-up child/elder care.
  2. Bright Horizons Education & College Advising™: Preparing teammates' high schoolers for college.
  3. Bright Horizons Special Needs™: Expert guidance on a child's unique situation and tools to advocate for the child.
  4. Bright Horizons Additional Family Support™: Access to a database of nannies, elder care resources and pet sitters, tuition discounts and study/test preparation services.

DaVita also launched THRIVE, a professional development program under DaVita Rewards. This unique program is focused on developing high-potential nurses, clinical coordinators and clinic nurse managers for positions in operation management. Additionally, DaVita is currently piloting Bridge to Your Dreams, an innovative program that supports qualified and high-performing patient care technicians in becoming Registered Nurses through fully-funded tuition, scheduling assistance, coaching and role placement.
