SCAN is One of the Best Workplaces for Women

Date Posted: 10/25/2023

LONG BEACH, Calif., Oct. 25, 2023—SCAN Group (SCAN), a mission-driven organization whose holdings include SCAN Health Plan, one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit Medicare Advantage plans, has been named to Great Place To Work and Fortune magazine’s Best Workplaces for Women list.

“We are very proud of this recognition and grateful to our dedicated employees, whose commitment to our mission contributed to us making this prestigious list,” said SCAN Health Plan President Karen Schulte. “Our team members make working at SCAN a truly special experience every day and we thank them for all they do.”

To determine the Best Workplaces for Women, Great Place To Work analyzed the survey responses of over 600,000 women who work for Great Place To Work Certified companies that were eligible for the list. To be considered, a company must employ at least 50 women, and have at least 20% of non-executive managers who are women and at least one executive who is a woman.

Studies on gender diversity in the healthcare workforce reveal a concerning disparity. Despite comprising a substantial 80% of the sector's employees, women's representation in crucial leadership positions remains at less than 20%.

At SCAN, gender diversity in leadership is unique within the broader healthcare landscape with the current workforce being comprised of:

  • 65% of SCAN’s leadership roles are held by women
  • 75% of SCAN’s CEO direct reports are women
  • 62% of SCAN’s Board members are women

“This recognition exemplifies SCAN’s unwavering dedication to fostering diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging within our organization,” said Lindsay Crawley-Herbert, chief people officer at SCAN Group and SCAN Health Plan. “We believe in the power of incorporating diverse voices at every level, reinforcing our strong commitment to nurturing an inclusive company culture.”

In addition to being named to Fortune’s Best Workplaces in Aging Services list two years in a row and being certified as a Great Place to Work three years in a row, SCAN was also recently recognized by Modern Healthcare, the healthcare industry's leading source of healthcare business and policy news, research and information, as a Top Innovator Organization and one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare.

SCAN Health Plan was also ranked the #1 Medicare Advantage Provider for Member Satisfaction in California based on the results of the J.D. Power 2023 U.S. Medicare Advantage Satisfaction study.
