Our Company Culture: Proud to be Bright Horizons

Bright Horizons Careers Culture

Bright Horizons: Helping Families Feel like Family

Home is where the HEART is. The foundation of our culture is our HEART principles, through which we encourage Honesty, Excellence, Accountability, Respect, and Teamwork. Many in the Bright Horizons family adopt these principles in both their personal and work lives. We work hard and take our work seriously, but also make sure to celebrate and have fun. We recognize the critical role our team plays in fulfilling our mission. And to do that, we provide an environment where employees can bring their whole selves to work, and where individuality, creativity, and contributions are valued. Our company leaders recognize how important it is for our people to feel successful in their lives, both at work and at home. Our Bright Horizons family is a caring, passionate group of individuals committed to providing exceptional experiences, dedicated to bringing their talents every day, and joined by a common theme: that we are proud to be Bright Horizons.

Bright Horizons Careers Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

The Bright Horizons community is a vibrant tapestry of children, families, and employees who represent a myriad of cultures, backgrounds, and experiences. We embrace our diversity and know our collective perspectives make us a stronger company. With the help of our Inclusion Council, Employee Advisory Groups, diversity champions, diversity training for all new employees, and our initiative that encourages all employees to do “One Thing” to make their colleagues feel supported, we strive to create a culture that welcomes everyone into our family and celebrates our unique differences.

Bright Horizons Careers Employee Recognition

Employee Recognition

Rejoicing in the accomplishments of our Bright Horizons team members is an essential part of our culture. We believe in the power of “thank you.” And throughout the year, in ways big and small, formal and informal, spur-of-the-moment and pre-planned, we show our appreciation for employees at all levels. We invite our customers to do the same. We have many programs to acknowledge and celebrate our team, including employee appreciation month and national teacher appreciation campaigns.  Each year, we also honor our family through our annual Awards of Excellence events. Whether you are an award winner or cheering on a fellow team member, these formal award occasions are opportunities to come together and celebrate one another.

Bright Horizons Careers Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

Service — supporting the communities in which we work and live — is built into our DNA. Bright Horizons proudly stands behind our many employees who give their time, offering them grants and awards for the hard work they do to make the world a better place. We also work together to support the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children® and its important mission to bring Bright Spaces® to children and families in homeless shelters. In addition, many centers and departments host team-building “fundraising” events to support both our Foundation as well as other charities that are important to individual teams.
