PRIDE Perks Program

PRIDE – Personal Responsibility in Delivering Excellence – is an acronym used to encourage Hattiesburg Clinic employees to excel in their role. For more than two decades, PRIDE has been a clinic-wide term that places emphasis on sustaining and enhancing patient and employee satisfaction.

To show appreciation for the dedication and hard work of our employees, Hattiesburg Clinic partners with local businesses to offer exclusive discounts. These discounts, called PRIDE perks, boost morale and encourage our employees to shop local.

Hattiesburg Clinic has more than 2,000 employees, making it one of the largest employers in the Pine Belt. Becoming a PRIDE Perks Business allows your business an opportunity to attract customers while showing support to employees who provide care for members of the community.

Benefits of a PRIDE Perks Business:

  • Information about your business and the discount are shared internally with our employees.
  • Your business and discount will be featured as a PRIDE Perks Spotlight in internal communications at least once a year.
  • The business name, website, and discount are listed on the clinic’s PRIDE Portal. This is an internal site where employees participate in company surveys and shop for clinic T-shirts and special event tickets.
  • Any additional specials or sales offered by your business can be featured in our internal communications throughout the year.
  • You will also receive a “PRIDE Perks Business” vinyl decal to display in your entrance window to remind Hattiesburg Clinic employees of your partnership.
