Colorado Access Recognized as a Denver Post Top Workplace for the Second Consecutive Year

AURORA, Colo.—  For the second year in a row, Colorado Access, the state’s largest and most experienced public sector health plan, has been named a 2024 Denver Post Top Workplace.

The Denver Post Top Workplaces distinction is awarded based solely on employee feedback gathered through a comprehensive survey administered by Energage, LLC. Colorado Access once again demonstrated its dedication to cultivating a workplace culture rooted in alignment, execution, and connection. More than 347 Colorado Access employees participated in this year’s survey and only 150 companies were honored.

“Being named a Top Workplace for the second year in a row reflects our values,” said Annie Lee, president and CEO at Colorado Access. “It is a testament to the passion and dedication of our employees, who play a vital role in our efforts to achieve health equity for all.”

Over the past year, Colorado Access has continued to refine and expand employee-centered initiatives and commitment to professional development. In addition to traditional perks such as PTO, the company is committed to easing the burden of student loans through its student loan repayment program. It also prioritizes the learning growth and development of employees through tuition reimbursement for continuing education and programs such as the Leadership Academy, a six-month training developed by the University of Denver in partnership with Colorado Access.

“We have worked diligently to enhance the employee experience at Colorado Access, listening to feedback and investing in our team members’ growth and fulfillment,” said April Abrahamson, chief people and talent development officer. “We strive to create a mission-driven and person-centered environment that focuses on overall well-being of employees, members, and the communities we serve. We also wholeheartedly believe in cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace, rooted in collaboration and action.”

In the past year, Colorado Access has taken the approach of educating and engaging employees through its diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) initiatives. Demographics for the organization show that the ethnic makeup of the employees is representative of the membership population served, aiding in the ability of Colorado Access to understand and serve its members. Through its Land and People Acknowledgement, the organization has recognized the historical and cultural significance of the land it operates on. The process was driven by Colorado Access employees and included connection with community leaders. The DE&I Learning Collection, created by employees for employees, has created a space for learning and exploring many topics, including cultural humility and intersectionality.

“As we continue to increase our learning and understanding of this multi-cultural and generational world that we live in, it will directly impact the care we provide,” said Bobby King, vice president of diversity, equity, and inclusion. “Colorado Access continues to be a workplace filled with acceptance and collaboration.”
