Magellan’s Corporate Culture

Heralded for an employee-friendly, flexible and relaxed work atmosphere, Magellan takes employee perks to the next level by offering an incentive-based Fitness Challenge. Started by David Carlins, Magellan’s President, the Magellan Employee Fitness challenge is now in its sixth year. Magellan employees are encouraged to choose a fitness event to participate in, train with another employee in the company, complete a commitment form outlining training schedules, and complete their fitness event. Once each individual’s event is completed according to goals set, he or she receives reimbursement from Magellan for all event fees.

Lots of support is given to employees through their fitness journey including free goody bags, discounts to area retailers, and “Team Magellan” dry-fit shirts. In addition, Magellan hosts fitness classes during the workweek such as yoga, biking workshops, running clinics and nutrition seminars. These classes and events are free to employees.

From running races to stair climbs to triathlons and Ironman competitions, Magellan employee fitness event participation is widespread throughout Chicagoland and beyond.
