Benefits & Well-Being

We know that providing employees the means to lead healthy, balanced lives is key to achieving personal and professional growth. That’s why we offer a comprehensive benefits program that includes health, dental, vision, life, disability, and ancillary benefits. Through our wellness program, employees get access to unique benefits that include:

  • A medical plan that pays 100% of the cost of preventive care
  • A cash incentive deposited into the employee’s Health Savings Account for completing a free annual physical and personal health risk assessment with an additional cash contribution if their spouse also completes both steps
  • Unlimited access to a Personal Health Advocate to assist employees in navigating the health care system
  • Teladoc, a digital solution that provides 24/7/365 access to U.S. board-certified doctors

We also provide our employees the opportunity to save for retirement by offering a 401K program with an employer matching contribution as well as an Employee Stock Purchase Plan.

Health & Safety

Keeping our employees safe is fundamental to the successful operation of our business. Our goal is to be an injury-free workplace and we continuously train, monitor and set goals at each of our locations to achieve this objective. To build and sustain a culture embedded in these principles, we incentivize our operational leaders to build health and safety into our culture.
