Centene Recognized by FORTUNE®, Human Rights Campaign Foundation, and Great Place to Work®


2022 FORTUNE World's Most Admired Companies badge

Centene is committed to hiring top-tier talent at every level to provide the best possible care to our members, remaining a respected corporate partner, and building an equal and inclusive workplace. These beliefs inform every aspect of our business and culture, and Centene is honored by recent acknowledgments of these efforts from FORTUNE® magazine, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, and Great Place to Work®.

Centene is named to FORTUNE® magazine’s 2022 list of the World's Most Admired Companies for the fourth consecutive year in the Insurance and Managed Care industry category.

Centene joins organizations such as Apple, Amazon, and Microsoft on the list of companies with the strongest reputations among surveyed corporate executives, directors, and analysts. Many companies that are leaders in technology and in combatting COVID-19 were included this year. Centene was also included on FORTUNE’s 2021 World’s Most Admired Companies list to recognize our efforts during the pandemic.

The 333 organizations on FORTUNE’s World's Most Admired Companies list represent the top-rated companies around the world. Companies were rated within their respective industries on criteria that included investment value, quality of management and products, social responsibility, and ability to attract talent. A company’s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed in the comprehensive ranking.

Centene also is proud to be named a 2022 Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) for the fifth consecutive year.

Centene received a score of 100 percent on the HRC’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a national benchmarking survey measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality.

The CEI rating criteria consists of four pillars:

  • Non-discrimination policies across business entities
  • Equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families
  • Supporting an inclusive culture
  • Corporate social responsibility

Lastly, Centene is certified as a Great Place to Work®. The company is committed to supporting employees’ life-work balance through office flexibility, hybrid work schedules, remote work options, and dress flexibility.

Based on what employees said about their experience, this external award recognizes Centene as a people-first employer of choice.

Approximately, 78% of employees at Centene say it is a great place to work compared to 59% of employees at typical U.S.-based companies.

“These recognitions mean a great deal because Centene is committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for our employees,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer Shannon Bagley. “We understand the critical role we play in transforming the health of our communities and being recognized for building a great company culture will help us attract and retain top talent so we can continue to fuel improved service, innovation, and performance for those we serve.”
