Modern Health Recognized for its Innovation and Great Workplace Culture Following a Year of Rocketship Growth in 2020
Modern Health, the mental health and wellness platform supporting 200+ enterprises globally, today announced it was awarded 35th place on the Best Workplaces in the Bay Area 2021 list by Great Place to Work® and Fortune. Additionally, Modern Health was named by Fierce Healthcare as a Fierce 15 company, designating it as one of the most promising health care companies of 2021.
“One of the things I’m most proud of is the team we’ve assembled at Modern Health. It brings me an immense amount of joy to see mission-driven people of all talent backgrounds embrace our company’s dedication to making mental health support more accessible,” comments Alyson Watson, CEO and founder of Modern Health. “We have always strived to create a people-first culture and we’re proud of how this commitment has resulted in a 99.7% retention rate in our workforce. We are humbled to be recognized as one of the best workplaces in the Bay Area and we will continue to prioritize our mental health-focused and empowering culture as we scale.”
The ranking on the 2021 Best Workplaces in the Bay Area list considered more than 44,000 employee surveys from companies across the Bay Area and evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and the level of team camaraderie. Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies who best ensure that all employees are represented, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.

“Talented people in the Bay Area want to work for organizations where they can be part of something innovative and impactful,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like Modern Health are attracting these candidates because of their great workplace culture where employees feel like their job is meaningful and that they can maximize their human potential.”
The Fierce 15 list celebrates the spirit of being “fierce” – championing innovation and creativity even in the face of intense competition. Fierce Healthcare evaluated hundreds of companies from around the world for the list, which is based on a variety of factors, such as strength of technology, partnerships, venture backers and their innovative approaches to solving some of the most complex and longstanding problems in the health industry.
“The past year has been a particularly challenging time as the entire global population faces an extended period of chronic stress triggered by everything from a global pandemic to systemic racism to ongoing political unrest,” adds VP of Clinical Care at Modern Health, Myra Altman, PhD. “With the level of mental health need that exists, we have to find ways to make high quality care more accessible and we’re honored to be included in this group of Fierce 15 winners that are tackling these important challenges.”
This week Modern Health was also honored alongside some of the most innovative companies in the healthcare industry by Nasdaq in its virtual Opening Bell Ceremony timed to celebrate the beginning of the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference.
