Health Insurance
Since every employee has individual circumstances, we allow you to select from a range of options including flexible medical, dental, vision, prescription drugs, mental-health and chemical-dependency programs.

Employee Assistance Program
Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) was designed to help you and your family members deal with stressful situations and emotional problems. Through our EAP you have confidential access to a wide range of diagnostic, counseling and referral services.

Sick-leave Income Protection
If you're unable to work because of illness or injury, you'll still receive a portion of your salary for up to 26 weeks through our short-term disability (STD) coverage. You can enroll in a long-term disability (LTD) plan to protect your income thereafter.

Retirement Planning
Saving for retirement is prudent and can be relatively painless. Our generous retirement plan is based on your length of service and salary. In addition, we provide computerized retirement and savings plan modeling, to help ensure that you're making sound financial decisions.

Group life insurance. Planning for the future also means planning for the unexpected. You can protect yourself and your family through our Group Universal Life Plan that allows you to build up extra cash by making contributions beyond the minimum premium.

This program accommodates employees who want or need to work non-traditional schedules. Flexible work alternatives include:
- Flextime - varying your starting and quitting times;
- Compressed work weeks - complete a 40-hour week in fewer than five days;
