Voting impacts our civic health

The health of our democracy, like our own personal health, depends on us. Accolade believes all those who are eligible need to make their voice heard by voting in local, state, and national elections year-round. We are committed to strengthening our democracy by encouraging nonpartisan voter participation.

COVID-19 may complicate how and when we participate in voting, however. Accolade is prioritizing the health and safety of employees as we support them using their voices this election season. Here are a few things we’re doing:

Voter Registration Resources

This year, we’ve developed voting resources for all Accolade employees to ensure their voter registration is up-to-date, get registered, find their polling place for Election Day, and request a mail-in ballot.

Poll Worker Support

Accolade employees can use their annual volunteer PTO day to serve as poll workers on Election Day.

No Meetings on Election Day

To ensure flexibility for employees, we’re not holding meetings on Election Day.

Accolade is a company built on listening to people, understanding their concerns and helping them find solutions. That’s what we do. Voting is how we as citizens make our voices heard, communicate the things that concern us, and get our leaders and representatives to take action on them.

Anti-Racism is needed now

Accolade works at the intersection of health and race, which means that we seek to make healthcare work for every person, no matter their race, disability, or background. We’re proud of the work we do with our customers and members, and we’re proud of our employees who make Accolade successful. It is a core value to ensure our Accolade team reflects the diversity of our members and our communities. Here are a few additional steps we’ve taken:

Hiring

Representation

Diversified Pipeline

The Board Challenge

Condition care

Race is usually something CEOs aren’t supposed to talk about except in bland, corporate-speak kind of terms. I believe we can and must do better than that. We have a platform to make the world a better place. We must actively use it.

Additional Accolade resources

Accolade’s vision of every person living their healthiest life can’t become a reality until everyone has equal access to healthcare. We’re working as an organization to shed light on the factors that contribute to this inequality and to identify what we can do to help close racial gaps in the healthcare industry.
