I’m Larry Gallmeier, United States Air Force veteran and Aetna employee.
Here at Aetna, we have some of the best policies and programs to support the military, veterans, the National Guard, and our reserve and our families.
This includes leave and pay policies, employee resource groups, and charitable activities.
Most importantly our beliefs and behaviors, our culture and core values, are aligned with those of the armed forces.
At Aetna we put the people we serve at the center of all we do.
To better understand how Aetna supports veterans and their families, let’s hear from some fellow employees.
Inspiration: Working with fellow nurses and case managers, I see this value in action everyday through our support to members. I was inspired by my Aetna colleagues when my husband and son were deployed to Iraq, one right after the other. I was touched when my coworkers assisted me, preparing monthly care packages for our soldiers who are family members of colleagues in our office. And I was grateful to use Aetna’s military family leave benefit to help my son travel back home after his honorable discharge. My family and I are so grateful for Aetna’s support to veterans and their families.
Integrity: In my position at Aetna, integrity means balancing facts with insight and intuition when making decisions. Like the military, Aetna values diversity, appreciating what each individual brings to the table. As a military reservist, Aetna is a great place to work because there is no interruption in salary and benefits while performing annual training.
Caring: Where I work within Aetna, caring means staying focused on that one members’ concerns in that moment and working with them to find solutions. For me, I felt comforted by my employer Aetna while I was deployed with the Army National Guard. I knew that I would have a job to come home to. The transition back to civilian life was made easier because of Aetna.
In my clinical role at Aetna, I see my coworkers striving to do their very best to help Aetna’s members with their health needs. As an Air Force reservist, I saw Aetna doing all they could do to support me as an employee who was deployed to serve her country. I was never worried about my job when called to fulfill my military duty, I trusted God, my Aetna boss, and Aetna that everything would work out well, and it did.
Excellence: The skills I gained in the Army have supported me well in my career at Aetna. As a soldier, things can change at a moment’s notice. You have to be flexible, make decisions quickly, move out and adjust later. At Aetna, I’ve learned that change is also constant. For me, I excel at work as an individual when I collaborate with my team, work together, and get the job done.
Making the decision to work for Aetna was easy for me. That’s because Aetna has a clear and meaningful mission. Helping people live longer, healthier lives is something worth fighting for.
