Livongo Health, the leading Applied Health Signals company empowering people with chronic conditions to live better and healthier lives, was recognized with several top honors in 2018.
Among them was a number one ranking on Silicon Valley Business Journal’s list of Fastest Growing Private Companies in Silicon Valley. The organization also was named a 2018 Healthiest Employer of the Bay Area, and one of Silicon Review’s 50 Best Workplaces of the Year. Livongo executives also earned industry and philanthropic accolades with Chief Executive Officer Glen Tullman being named one of the 20 Most Inspiring Chicagoans in 2018 while Chief Medical Officer Jennifer Schneider, MD, was recognized as a 2018 Connected World Women of M2M (WoM2M) award winner for helping to drive the industry forward, and Chief Commercial Officer Jim Pursley was honored as a Modern Healthcare Up and Comer.
Silicon Valley Business Journal named Livongo Silicon Valley’s fastest-growing private company.
“At Livongo, we are committed to helping our members thrive, and this starts with our own people,” Tullman said. “Creating a culture of health fosters a spirit of innovation that allows our employees to perform at their best for our members and clients. I am proud to see the industry take notice.”
The Harvard Business Review reports that when organizations develop exemplary cultures, they achieve significantly higher levels of organizational effectiveness — including financial performance, customer satisfaction, productivity and employee engagement.
“We are pleased to be recognized for our commitment to workplace culture, health and productivity and believe this is the secret to our success,” said Arnnon Geshuri, Chief People Officer for Livongo. “As a mission-driven organization and a category leader tackling our chronic health epidemic, we are fortunate to be able to attract extraordinary talent who want to reinvent healthcare and change lives.”
Employees at Livongo are drawn to the mission of the organization, as approximately one-third live with a chronic condition and another third have family members who do. The organization invests in employee health through its emphasis on leadership, mission, diversity and inclusion, and benefits. Benefits include flexible work schedules, the option to work from home, unlimited paid time off and summer hours. Employees also have access to Livongo’s programs for prediabetes, diabetes, weight management, and hypertension.
Livongo’s impact on workplace health goes beyond its own employees. More than 600 organizations, including the leading Fortune 500 self-insured employers, many innovative health systems, 4 of the 7 largest health plans and the two leading pharmacy benefit managers, have implemented Livongo solutions allowing the organization to transform lives well beyond its own halls.
