A “concierge-like healthcare experience” for employees, but not a word about their children.
As an integral member of the primary care team, the Health Partner works in direct partnership with the primary care physician to help patients improve their health and wellness through sustainable behavior change. The Health Partner uses a thoughtful and strategic combination of health education, health coaching, and behavioral analysis to help patients overcome barriers such as knowledge gaps, harmful attitudes, environmental constraints, and skill deficits that hinder their potential for improved health and quality of life.
From Mike Murphy’s Apple’s new $5 billion campus has a 100,000-square-foot gym and no daycare in Quartz:
What’s notably missing from the 175-acre headquarters, however, is a childcare center—probably not a big deal to workers who don’t need to leave the mothership to tend to such worldly pursuits as child-rearing, but a missed opportunity, given Apple’s prominence as an employer, to redefine the relationship between work and home life.
On-site childcare remains a rare feature in corporate America. But it’s been shown to do wonders for parents of young children. Its presence has helped Patagonia, for example, to retain 100% of the women on staff who have had children over the past five years. (The average in the US is under 80%.)
My take: Yup, I’m riding my daycare hobbyhorse again. Still waiting for Apple’s promised response. Meanwhile, I’m a little creeped out by the job application. Harmful attitudes? Knowledge gaps? Behavioral analysis and behavioral change? Is this how health coaches talk?
