At Bright Horizons, we have the privilege of making a profound and unique difference in the world and in the lives of our employees. And it's an opportunity we take to heart. As the leading provider of employer-sponsored work / life balance solutions, we've expanded our original focus on child care to address the needs of clients' employees at all life stages. Today, in addition to child care and early education at our more than 700 centers and schools, we offer back-up care for well and mildly ill children and adult loved ones, College Coach® for children's college dreams, and EdAssist® for employees with educational aspirations of their own. These benefits apply to our employees as well.
But what makes Bright Horizons an employer of choice is our emphasis on what goes on inside of our own walls. Our focus on supportive work environments reaches into our own centers and offices, where we're dedicated to our teachers, administrators, and employees as much as to our clients.
Bright Horizons is not just a company, it's a culture.
It's a special recipe of people, principles, and pride. It's the spirit of collectively using all of our unique gifts to serve employees, clients, families, and communities every day.
When you join Bright Horizons, you join an organization that understands the value of our people; one that prides itself on support and cooperation; and one that recognizes and appreciates the strengths that each employee brings. Our focus on well-being - on supporting our employees in their lives both at work and at home - ensures a work environment in which each employee's chosen path is respected, rewarded, and celebrated.
At our core, all of us at Bright Horizons are proud of what we do.
Our corporate culture unites and inspires our employees to work hard. Together, we're dedicated to excellence; to setting a standard other companies hope to achieve; and to providing the highest-quality care for the children and families that we serve. By supporting our employees and nurturing their passion, commitment, and engagement, Bright Horizons has built an employee community that continues to grow and to thrive.
Our Mission & HEART Principles
At Bright Horizons, our mission is to make a difference in the lives of others. This shared goal motivates our employees and provides a clear link between the work that we do and the impact that we have on hundreds of thousands of lives every day.
Delivering on this mission starts with a solid cultural foundation built on HEART (honesty, excellence, accountability, respect, teamwork). These formally stated HEART Principles articulate our people practices and illustrate our collective commitment to quality - and to each other. Together with our mission statement to guide us, these principles provide a clear roadmap that expresses "how" we do what we do; that joins us in a common direction; and that unites leadership and employees in the singular goal of being our very best.
