Our Commitment to Diversity
At Brighton Health Plan Solutions, we embrace a diverse culture that is encouraging, respectful and welcoming.
The Strategic Pillars of Our Diversity Commitment
Our Strategic Pillars guide us in pursuing our DEI goals to improve the overall employee experience, create a safe space for all team members and achieve diverse representation across all levels of the organization.
We welcome and value each team member’s thoughts, ideas and perspectives.
We encourage team members to bring their authentic selves to work and provide training to help every employee understand and exhibit inclusive behaviors.
We support representation in our community and engage in acts of service.
Through dollar-for-dollar matching programs and dedicated time off, we encourage team members to engage in philanthropy and volunteer work.
We foster a culture of inclusion where each team member belongs and is safe being their authentic self.
We believe in increasing diversity and inclusion at every level, starting with leaders making space for viewpoints that are different from their own. We encourage safe spaces and give underrepresented people a voice. We believe in seeking input, celebrating self-identity and encouraging employee-led groups (ERGs) that build inclusivity.
We’ve recently updated how we define our values in order to reflect our goals and the progress we’ve made in our DEI journey.
We have a genuine concern for the well-being of others and care for each other and those we serve.
Work as a team to support the business and one another. Speak and act with empathy and humility. Listen to understand.
Lead with empathy. Support and guide your team in the decisions that need to be made. Check-in on each other, appreciate other points of view and create space for others to contribute. Show genuine care for the people you lead.
We hold ourselves to the highest moral and ethical standards and comply vigilantly with laws and regulations.
Work ethically, honestly and transparently. Be respectful. Admit mistakes. Follow through on commitments.
Do what you say and say what you mean. Express gratitude, be authentic and show respect for each other. Lead by example by modeling our core values in your words and actions.
We will consistently raise the bar on our performance.
Be exceptional and strive to be better in everything we do. Execute with confidence, expertise and efficiency.
Seek out different perspectives. Recognize we can learn from each other and collectively be better. Understand that our differences make us stronger.
We imagine what the future of healthcare should be and do everything we can to make that vision a reality.
Embrace change and creativity. Anticipate the needs of the company and the industry and use creative solutions to make things better. Integrate diverse perspectives and viewpoints into all that we do.
Inspire others to drive change. Encourage individual expression of ideas and opinions and recognize that a product or service can be improved by thinking about it in a new way. Challenge and empower your teams to express their views and listen with an open mind.
We take complete ownership of our commitments to each other and to our partners.
Follow through with your commitments. Make well-informed and balanced decisions and own up to mistakes. Be responsive.
Hold yourself and each other accountable. Take ownership of your team’s work, strengths, and weaknesses. Take appropriate action to remedy a performance issue or mistake. Discuss biases that influence decision making.
Each month, we host informal, employee-led meetings to discuss important topics that impact our team members. We aim to create a safe space where our team members can be their authentic selves and share different parts of who they are with colleagues. This is another example of how we are building an inclusive environment with a strong sense of belonging. Calendar invites for Fireside Chats are sent to all team members and are optional. If you plan on joining, we ask you to devote the time, engage and have your camera on. It can be difficult to share and it is important that those sharing feel supported.

Become a Brighton Ambassador & Join the DEI Team!
Become a Brighton Ambassador and support our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) goals. The Brighton Ambassador Program brings together groups of team members to work on initiatives that foster a diverse, equitable and inclusive Brighton community while addressing issues of visibility, access and belonging.
The program is intended to provide a platform for our team members to engage in and advocate for initiatives across a variety of areas, including talent acquisition and onboarding, training, employee resource groups (ERGs), Days of Understanding, mentoring, community engagement and volunteerism.
We encourage all departments to get involved!
Join PRIDE ERG!
An acronym for Perspectives, Resources, Insights and Direction by Employees, PRIDE ERG’s purpose is to advance and promote workplace LGBTQ+ equality, safety and inclusion through engaging and developing employees and playing an active role in community outreach and involvement. Membership is open to all employees, including those who identify with the LGBTQ+ community, and allies who stand up for, support and encourage members of the LGBTQ+ community.
Our charitable giving program matches employee donations to the United Way dollar-for-dollar.
Don’t forget: you have a day to volunteer as part of Brighton Gives. Talk to your leader about getting the team together to volunteer and pay it forward!
New Email Signatures
We are launching one company-wide email signature for all team members! Your email address will remain the same (some will show @magnacare.com and others @brightonhps.com), but we will all be united as Brighton Health Plan Solutions team members. The email signature will include the Brighton HPS company logo, along with the MagnaCare and Create Technology brand logos.
You'll also be able to add your chosen pronouns to your signature if you wish. We'll have a drop-down menu available, but you can reach out to us if your preferred pronouns are not included. In our media center at the bottom of the page, you can download resources including a pronoun glossary and an illustration on gender identity titled, "The Genderbread Person."
To update your email signature, simply fill out this form by Sept. 30, 2023. (Please be sure to enter your complete and official title into the form!) Once you submit the form, you’ll receive your new signature via email along with instructions on next steps. Instructions on how to implement your new signature can also be found in the media center.
To the left are some examples of how your email signature should look. If your signature is not rendering correctly, or if you need help with spacing or formatting, please reach out to [email protected].
We want to support you as you take care of your physical and mental health. That’s why we offer resources like Magellan Healthcare’s Comprehensive Employee Assistance Program (EAP), which can help enhance emotional wellness, reduce stress and increase productivity. Magellan’s EAP includes self-care programs, online classes and access to personal coaches and counselors. To learn more about the programs available through Magellan Healthcare, visit their website or call 1-800-523-5668.
We also provide free subscriptions to the Noom Mood program, which can help you improve your emotional awareness and better manage stress.
