Created From Within

We fully recognize that people are our most important asset. Our success depends entirely on the strength of our talented employees and leaders, which we build from within and manage with a disciplined process led.

Our approach to developing leaders at Athletico is simple—we incorporate the best evidence-based training from the Harvard Business Review as well as address the individual consciousness and strengths of each leader.

Athletico’s Purpose and Values

Our purpose and values are the foundation on which we develop leaders. Our shared purpose—to help people enhance their health and quality of life—in addition to our values—patient satisfaction, accountability, teamwork and continuous improvement—unify us as we collaborate as a team internally and sustain us as we engage in our service externally. Taken together, our purpose and values are the foundation for our unique culture and leadership approach.

We Hire the Best

Through a strategic, quality driven hiring experience that establishes first the alignment of the candidate with the companies’ core values, followed by a “best fit” process, Athletico consistently attracts top talent from across the nation because of our reputation for clinical excellence. Subsequently, our future leaders are able to be prepared from the early stages of their career and developed throughout their professional life.

We Develop and Engage Our Team

We believe there’s no substitute for hands-on experience when it comes to leadership development. That’s why we create early, meaningful responsibilities for every employee. Typical assignments demand collaboration inside and outside the organization, which allow project management and the need to be in touch with current healthcare trends and operations.
