Olive's Flexible Work Model, The Grid, Supports Explosive Growth with Team Quadrupling Since its Spring 2020 Launch
U.S.A., June 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- As companies across the country announce their return to office plans, Olive, the company delivering innovation to healthcare through artificial intelligence (AI), is reinforcing its commitment to employees to never have to "return" through its novel flexible workforce model -- The Grid. Not only has the model empowered employees to work from anywhere, it has also supported unprecedented company growth through broader access to top talent.
"I believe the term 'remote work' is dead and companies need to adopt more flexible work models. We've seen an enormous positive impact of our Grid model in the year since we launched it. There is no way we could have accessed all the talent we've needed to grow without this model," said Brian Rutkowski, Chief People Officer at Olive. "Not only does this model more successfully support our hiring needs, it's the right commitment for us to have made to our team members, who are all working hard to transform healthcare."
First-of-its-kind workforce model attracts employees from across the country, giving them ultimate flexibility
Rather than being "in an office" or "out of office" employees are "on The Grid" or "off The Grid." Being on The Grid means that an employee is actively working from wherever they have chosen and are most effective, be that at home, in a cabin, on the beach, at Olive's Hub, an Olive workplace, or elsewhere across the country. Being off The Grid means they are not actively working, be it off-hours or vacation time. /p>
Olive continues to evolve its benefits to support its distributed team. By offering Marriott Bonvoy points to employees, Olive encourages team members to get away from work to relax, explore or try something new – while the company foots the bill. Through the Olive Getaways program, every employee can receive 200,000 Marriott Bonvoy reward points that can be redeemed for free nights at any Marriott property, airfare, travel experiences, gift cards, events and more.
The company also has a wellness program designed to actively incorporate mental and physical wellness into daily interactions amongst employees. And while many companies now offer unlimited PTO, Olive also has a mandatory PTO policy where employees are required to take at least three days off each quarter. In addition, Olive recently launched "No Meeting Wednesday," dedicating one day a week for employees to focus and not hold internal meetings as well as get some relief from Zoom fatigue.
Grid model provides access to top talent, including seasoned leadership
In addition, the Grid model bolstered Olive's leadership, with eight non-Columbus-based senior executives joining since fall 2020. Most recently, Olive added three new executives:
