Talent Management


Health and Wellness

Ensuring that our employees have the resources and tools they need to remain healthy and safe is an important component of our talent management strategy.

  • onsite cafeterias
  • onsite gyms and local health club discounts in some locations
  • virtual and telephonic health coaching and support
  • a 24-hour nurse hotline and access to a physician 24/7 through our telemedicine program
  • onsite, professionally staffed clinics in some locations
  • health screenings
  • flu shots
  • a company-paid tobacco cessation program
  • wellness seminars
  • Employee Assistance Programs
  • incentive programs that promote weight loss, physical fitness and other healthy programs
  • medical, dental and vision insurance coverage for employees, dependents and same-sex and opposite-sex domestic partners
  • short- and long-term disability insurance
  • health and fitness tool
  • medical cost comparison tool

Health and wellness at DIRECTV includes support and resources to enhance all aspects of our employees’ well-being. Our Employee Assistance Program is available to all family members and provides counseling for a number of life issues. To address professional and personal stress, we conduct time management and stress management workshops and financial education seminars and classes.
