HEALTH & WELLNESS
COMMUNITY & BELONGING
Flexibility has always been a hallmark of our work culture - we know people have lives outside work.
While we have set business hours and a comprehensive time reporting policy, staff can adjust their schedules to accommodate non-work related or personal matters during their standard work hours.
Our thriving tele-community is attracting and retaining top talent globally.
Other benefits? Decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, minimizing fixed facility costs and reinforcing balance as a value.
One in five employees telecommutes at least one day per week.
Our parental leave benefits bring the security that employees will be welcomed back post-leave. In FY18, 82 percent of employees (92 percent female, 75 percent male) who took parental leave returned to work at Abt. Working parents often take advantage of our flexible work hours and telecommuting policies.
We are committed to providing an extensive suite of benefits to promote the health and wellness of our employees and their families.
Our comprehensive benefits package for U.S.-based staff includes company-subsidized medical and dental insurance plans; company-funded life, disability and leave plans; business travel accident insurance and an Employee Assistance Plan. In addition, employees can choose from a variety of additional employee-paid benefits that we offer through payroll deductions - including Flexible Spending Plans, supplemental life and disability insurance, and vision coverage.
We contribute a percentage of our profits each year to eligible employees (U.S. citizens and permanent residents) via the Employee Stock Ownership Program and provide a generous matching contribution to the employee's 401K. Benefit packages for international staff follow the customs and regulations of the countries in which they work.
In our U.S. offices, we offer a wide variety of wellness benefits throughout the year to help keep our staff healthy, including:
Annual on-site flu shots: In Fall 2017, we fully funded and administered almost 400 flu shots.
Annual $150 Gym Memberships Subsidy
Weight Watchers 50% Subsidy
Monthly Discounted Massages
In-office Yoga Classes
Ergonomic Workstation Assessments
Work/Life Assistance Plans: employees receive free counseling for a range of stressful, personal difficulties.
Our commuter benefits support employee behavior that not only lowers our greenhouse gas emissions but support employees' active lifestyle choices.
In our U.S. offices, we cover 75% of our employees' commuting costs up to a max of $75-$100 (depending on office location). As of April 2018, nearly 300 employees participate in the transit subsidy program.
Abt provides $120 per calendar year of reimbursement for bicycle-related purchases. Last year, 70 employees took advantage of the subsidy for purchases of bicycles, helmets, tune-ups and more. As an added incentive, secure bike racks, indoor storage and shower facilities are available, as well as an emergency ride home program.
A strong sense of belonging and fulfillment through recognition and connections to the community- inside and outside work-builds a strong culture. Employees connect with each other and the Global Abt community through internal social networks, community service and social events.
Employee Recognition and Appreciation
Through our Spot Recognition Program, supervisors can reward employees who go above and beyond their responsibilities with a cash bonus. Monthly "Milestones" events celebrate employee birthdays and work anniversaries.
AbtXchange is a social networking platform that promotes healthy actions and exchange of ideas among staff around the world. Since its launch, more than 1,000 employees have engaged on topics from health and wellness and global environmental challenges to professional development.
Locally and globally, formally and informally, we come together throughout the year. From annual events like holiday parties and the worldwide breakfast to start the new fiscal year, to initiatives that bring the wider Abt community together-like our EcoKid Drawing Challenge that engages children of employees around the world-to affinity groups like the outdoor, gardening and soccer clubs, our thriving, supportive culture fosters connection.
Every day, we make a difference in the lives of people around the world through our work. We make a difference locally, too. Our staff participate in numerous activities to support the communities in which we live.
