Hiring Process Already Underway at Connextions, Inc.
In partnership with the City of Jeffersonville Mayor Tom Galligan and the City of Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, Connextions, Inc., a pre-eminent technology and business services partner to the health care industry, today announced the addition of 750 jobs in Jeffersonville, IN, as a result of new business growth within its health care customer base. The positions will be located at the existing Jeffersonville solution center and range from licensed and non-licensed health agent roles, to coaches, managers, technologists and more. Information on the available positions is posted at www.jobs.connextions.com.
Recruiting for the new positions has already begun and will continue through July. More than one-third of the positions will be year-round employment, and the remaining will be seasonal with strong opportunities for the top performers to remain on board year-round. Many of the positions will support the important Medicare Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) for Americans over age 65.
“We are glad to be thriving in these challenging economic times and to be adding 750 jobs in Indiana in response to the growing demand for our health care consumer engagement solution,” said Todd Baxter, executive vice president of Connextions’ Consumer Division. “Demand is growing very steadily for our deep experience working with consumers as they purchase health care products – like health insurance – and learn how to use their plans to get well and stay well. We are committed to having 100 percent of our employees located in the United States. The consumer experience is much smoother when Americans familiar with the U.S. health care system are serving the needs of other Americans who are navigating it,” said Baxter.
“These new jobs are welcome news to citizens of our combined region, both Louisville and Southern Indiana,” Fischer said. “The growth and success of Connextions as a health technology company is also further evidence that lifelong wellness and aging care is an industry that will drive our local economy for years to come.”
