- Success at Halo Health stems from our uniquely talented team
- We believe in providing a culture of recognition
- Meet one of our Halo Heroes: Erik Walker
At Halo Health, we know it is the unique talents of our team members that drives our success, and we believe in providing a culture of recognition that acknowledges and respects those contributions.
Enter Halo Heroes.
Halo Heroes is our company recognition program – each quarter, Halo Health employees nominate a member of their peers to be recognized as a Halo Hero. Halo Heroes are employees who exemplify our core values of Accountability, Attitude, Teamwork, and Tenacity. Halo Heroes also go above and beyond to propel our company mission forward: to improve communication and collaboration in healthcare to save lives.
The team members who receive the most peer nominations are named “Halo Heroes.” Our Heroes are announced by leadership quarterly at our All-Company meetings, and they are recognized with a personal letter from our CEO, a Halo Hero hat, and a $200 Amazon gift card. Additionally, they are highlighted on our website and on our blog.
Which brings us to our most recent Heroes…
Get to Know Our Halo Hero: Erik Walker
Meet Erik: Erik is the Quality Assurance (QA) Manager at Halo Health, responsible for anything leaving the engineering team to make sure it is as defect free as possible and that it meets the needs of our end users. As manager, he oversees a team that performs Functional, Automation, and Performance testing to ensure users have exceptional experiences while utilizing our platform. Erik has worked at Halo Health for a little over three years.
A Day in the Life: Erik is a player-coach, meaning part of his day includes planning and meeting with the other Engineering managers. The other half of Erik’s day includes working as a Functional QA who supports the development teams, for example the iOS team. Erik also plans for future QA needs.
Motivation Station: Erik stays motivated at work by channeling personal experience. “Having had hospital experiences in the past that could have been made better if the hospital had better communication tools and strategies, I like to think I am making patients’ lives a little better. Hospitals usually mean people (patients) are in a vulnerable place, and I hope to make that experience better by empowering care providers with effortless ways to collaborate.”
Halo Hype: Erik enjoys being able to wear multiple hats – Halo Health doesn’t silo him into one role – and having the support of a strong team. “Halo Health allows me to go beyond my defined role and make changes to improve our application and the company. Also, my team and coworkers are great. We tackle difficult problems as a group and help each other succeed. Knowing the team is always there to support each other makes Halo Health such a great place to be.”
We could not be successful without hardworking and dedicated team members like Erik. But don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what Erik’s nominators had to say:
- “Erik’s leadership skills are exemplified daily in his actions and is always taking time from his busy schedule to explain things!”
- “Erik is great at moving projects along and he is always helpful and cheerful!”
- “Focused! Helpful! Dedicated!”
- “He guides the team in improving performance metrics and understands the larger picture!”
- “His dad jokes are a great addition and bring humor to the engineering team!”
Please join us in congratulating Erik! We couldn’t be prouder to have him on the Halo Health team.
