Many people are familiar with the phrase “if you’re going to talk the talk, you’ve got to walk the walk.” Afaxys has not only embraced this mentality; we have excelled at it and being awarded a Top Workplaces 2022 honor by the South Carolina Top Workplaces is a testament to the supportive, welcoming culture we’ve been building since our inception. This award is based solely on input from an anonymous, third-party survey of Afaxys employees on key cultural drivers that measure employee engagement and connection.

We are a small healthcare company whose talented employees are committed to a powerful mission – to ensure that reliable and affordable sexual and reproductive healthcare is available to everyone because it should be a right, not a privilege.

How do we do it? We provide community and public healthcare providers and their patients affordable access to a broad range of FDA-approved sexual and reproductive healthcare products. We also offer discounted pricing on products and services through a Group Purchasing Organization and streamlined, cloud-based purchasing through our own online marketplace appropriately called Afaxys Marketplace. Because of our team’s steadfast dedication, Afaxys now serves more than 14,000 community and public health centers across the nation and has delivered more than 27 million contraceptives to providers for their patients who might otherwise have been unable to access care.

At Afaxys, we’ve seen how powerful our mission, vision and location are in helping us to attract outstanding talent from all around the country. On top of that, we offer competitive compensation and benefits packages, as well as training and development programs to further support our employees’ professional growth. Additionally, we understand the need for flexibility in the workplace, which is why Afaxys offers paid time off starting at four weeks, a Summer Friday program and a “Work from Elsewhere – WE” policy, enabling employees to work from home or elsewhere up to 10 days each month.

Being based in Charleston, SC, we’re also able to draw on a unique ‘local’ culture. The rich history, proximity to beaches, the people, food and the lifestyle – these attributes make Charleston not only a great place to work but to live. Life sciences is also one of the fastest growing sectors of the state’s innovation economy, making it the perfect place to bring our mission to life.

We all share a passion for bettering our community but also each other. Servant leadership is a cornerstone of our culture, and we strive to help employees reach their full potential as we work together to improve public health.
