Listening to Our Teammates

Listening to Our Teammates

We are deeply committed to engaging our more than 60,000 teammates in a dialogue about our company's objectives and their role in shaping the future of healthcare. To that end, DaVita has several channels for two-way communication with senior leadership:

Voice of the Village Calls — All 60,000-plus teammates are invited to hear about the state of the company from senior DaVita HealthCare Partners leaders and ask questions about any subject they choose.

Town Hall Meetings — Held when one of our vice presidents visits a local center or office, these meetings allow teammates to showcase new programs, be recognized for individual contributions, share department updates and ask questions about DaVita's business practices.

The Eureka! Forum — Teammates provide feedback and share ideas via this online message board. Ideas range from how to improve patient care to resource conservation and ways to raise awareness about kidney disease. Implemented ideas are recognized during Voice of the Village calls. Departments regularly solicit teammate feedback about specific business initiatives.

People Services & IT Forum Calls — Held approximately every six to eight weeks, these calls give teammates direct access to our HR and IT leaders to discuss compensation, benefits, internal mobility and IT-related topics.
