Our Commitment to Our People: Purpose Certified
At Unite Us, our mission is to unlock the potential of every community. Our founders started Unite Us in 2013 to serve the people they served with. Both Dan and Taylor wanted to alleviate the problems veterans and their families experienced during the transition back to civilian life. They witnessed the barriers and inefficiencies in trying to navigate health and social services firsthand, and they set out to improve that experience. We’ve since expanded from serving veterans and their families to serving all people who need connections to care. And since day one, we’ve always been committed to this mission and to bringing on board people who are just as passionate about it.
As we continue to grow, we’re so excited to announce that we have been vetted and awarded as an official Purpose Certified company by Purpose Jobs.
Purpose Jobs is the largest community for purpose-driven professionals. Founded in Detroit and working with companies in the Midwest and beyond, Purpose Jobs brings together people who prioritize purpose and culture, helping them find meaningful, rewarding work. We are thrilled to be a part of the community.
What Does It Mean to Be Purpose Certified?
Our new Purpose Certification validates what we’ve been doing all along: putting our mission and our people first. Improving the health and well-being of communities across the country is only possible if we start at home with our own community here at Unite Us. “Finding meaningful work for myself, but also being able to bring that opportunity to others, is deeply personal to me. When I became a military spouse, I learned that over 90% of working military spouses are underemployed. This means, due to geography or opportunity, they are working in low-paying jobs or below their skill and education levels. The fact that Unite Us is mission driven, takes care of its employees, and empowers us to do our best work every day—from a variety of geographic locations—has given me a purposeful career,” said Jessica Paddock, Senior Director, Recruiting.
We’ve built a team of passionate and purpose-driven people who are changing the way sectors collaborate to improve lives.
“I’m energized every time I hear a story about a person or a family being connected to the services they need. It reminds me that the work we do is meaningful and powerful; we’re truly helping to improve and change lives,” said Sucheta Lakhani, Regional Vice President, Mid-Atlantic and Great Lakes.
From our sales and marketing teams to our engineers and product managers and everyone in between, all of our departments are united in the goal to help people live healthier, more fulfilling lives.
