Paragon started in Dallas with three employees in September 2002 and has grown to become the leading infusion provider in Texas with nearly 750 employees — including its first employee, who is now its chief sales officer. Employees brag about a culture of inclusion, respect by peers and leadership.
Secret sauce: “For some, it’s the quarterly bonus and other financial incentives. For others, it’s the ability to move from being the ‘mentee’ to the ‘mentor.’ For all, it is the feeling that they have the ability to make a difference in someone’s life by helping them through a difficult time,” says Rick Allen, CEO.
Employees say: “My supervisor is amazing and always available to answer a question. Paragon shows me how much they appreciate me as an employee.”
“I am making a difference in each patient’s life.”
