Culture is part of what makes NextHealth special.

Mehrshad has developed a simple strategy for acquiring and retaining high-caliber talent. A sense of purpose, raw intelligence, an interest in their hobbies and understanding what sort of team culture will fit the candidate. If you interview with his team, Mehrshad isn’t only going to focus on technical skills but also will want to better understand who you are as a person. A question he asks is, ‘Is where they want to be in 3 years with NextHealth, whether as an individual contributor or in a management role.’ To help the talent understand the culture, Mehrshad shares a couple of his mottos: “there is no trust without transparency” and “dissent is an obligation.” As a part of Mehrshad’s team, if you do not object to assigned work, it is assumed you can be held accountable for the delivery and it’s better to address all objections from the get-go. Finally, Mehrshad asks them how they have addressed a challenging situation whether at work or after work and they can bring up whatever example.
