Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) is a Great Place To Work®, according to 92% of team members surveyed about their experience working for the Rancho Cucamonga-based health plan.


IEHP received the prestigious recognition for the fourth year in a row and is listed alongside companies such as Hulu, Target and American Express. Great Place To Work® is a global leader on workplace culture, helping organizations create a consistently and overwhelmingly positive employee experience.


“Our positive and welcoming workplace culture can be directly attributed to our team members who take IEHP’s mission, vision and values to heart,” said Jarrod McNaughton, IEHP’s chief executive officer. “I couldn’t be more proud and grateful to be part of such a wonderfully engaged, talented and compassionate team.”


Surveys were sent across IEHP in April, and results were announced in late May. Of the more than 3,500 team members employed by the health plan, 3,416 employees completed the survey. Analytics collected by Great Place To Work® showed 95% of IEHP team members felt welcome from Day One.


Since 1996, IEHP has grown to become one of the largest employers in the region, providing opportunity for those who call the Inland Empire home. Career coaching, off- and on-site fitness classes, and tuition reimbursements and discounts are among the benefits available to team members and providers.


“IEHP is all about connecting our community to opportunities that build upon a holistic approach to optimal health,” said Supriya Sood, the plan’s chief people officer. “We want to ensure IEHP is able to serve the region for decades to come and are doing so by shaping the next generation of leaders and team members through competitive benefits and career development opportunities.”


According to Great Place To Work® research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance of promotion.


“Great Place To Work® Certification is a highly coveted achievement that requires consistent and intentional dedication to the overall employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place To Work. “By successfully earning this recognition, it is evident that IEHP stands out as one of the top companies to work for, providing a great workplace environment for its employees.”
