Humana: A history of innovation

Throughout our history, Humana has always been one step ahead, constantly evolving with the changing world of healthcare. It is our proactive, forward-thinking approach that has allowed us to not only meet the needs of our customers, but also provide a challenging and exciting work experience for our associates.

What's important to us
Drawing on more than 50 years of experience , we push forward with a noble purpose that inspires and instills pride. When it comes to helping people achieve lifelong well-being, the possibilities are endless. We're always looking for innovative ways to reach our customers where they are, to know them as individuals and to engage them in ways that are meaningful. To be truly successful, we need to create an emotional connection with people. When we achieve that, they benefit, and so does Humana.

People

We know our success is created by our people. At Humana, associates find themselves in a community of genuinely caring people. Our sense of integrity defines how we think, feel, and act. Humana associates build sincere relationships where they are connected and collaborative, and feel comfortable and respected. We listen to one another, to our customers and our members. And our conversations are authentic. As we reach out to change health care, we sometimes change one another!

 
Purpose

Change is in our DNA. We were founded in Louisville, Kentucky in 1961 by two young lawyers who had a dream — David A. Jones and Wendell Cherry — to create a nursing home where patients would be treated like family. Since then, Humana continues to transform to keep pace with changing times and evolving customer needs — nursing homes, hospitals, health benefits companies, to where we are today: a health solutions company focused on helping people achieve lifelong well-being.

 
Possibilities

Humana recognizes that each associate is unique, and we encourage you to unlock your potential by applying your skills, leveraging your strengths, and pursuing your interests. We give you the tools, the knowledge, the guidance, and the freedom to get involved right from the start. We not only seek diversity in culture and heritage but in experience and knowledge. We know that seeing a situation from a different perspective often leads to better solutions.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Humana.

    Interview

    Took about a month. The hiring manager was great but the process was long. Tattoos are fine and dyed hair. Phone interview first. Then face to face. Possibly 3 weeks until you hear back.
