We understand the pressures and challenges facing employees when trying to balance work with personal interests and responsibilities. We also understand that our employees are better able to meet the demands of the business when their own personal needs are being met.

When it comes to work/life balance, a “one-size-fits-all” approach simply won’t do. Our programs are designed to recognize that not all employees are the same and that employees’ needs may change over time.

Depending on an employee’s role and location, here is a sampling of the types of work/life programs and benefits that may be available:

  • Flexible schedules (As a 24/7 employer, Winona Health offers day, evening, night and weekend shifts and minimum work requirements ranging from on-call to full-time status.)
  • On-site seminars, fairs and workshops on such topics as stress, nutrition and safety
  • On-site café
  • Fitness facilities and classes
  • Access to free counseling services on a variety of personal and work/life issues
  • Paid time off and sick days
  • Tuition reimbursement

Membership in business, civic and professional organizations: Reimbursement may be available for annual dues and fees for certain organizations.

Mobility: We help people achieve their potential by providing diverse experiences that include moving between service lines, departments and functions.

Orientation: We provide a comprehensive introduction to Winona Health, but it doesn’t stop there. We believe learning is ongoing.

Service anniversary awards: We recognize and celebrate those who have a long-term relationship with us by providing them with a gift for certain milestone anniversaries.
