Health and wellness benefits

In addition to good working conditions and competitive pay, it is the city's policy to provide a combination of core and supplemental benefits to all eligible employees. In keeping with this goal, each benefit has been carefully designed to meet the needs of our diverse employee population. These benefits include time-off benefits, such as vacations and holidays, as well as health insurance and other benefits.

From time to time, the city establishes other incentives to encourage wellness. Examples include the opportunity to earn points that could be exchanged for a variety of items including cash, merchandise, gift cards, and travel; free immunizations; free lunch-and-learns on health- and wellness-related topics; on-site weight management and fitness programs; and, a generous subsidy for employee-participation in the city’s Farm to Table, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) initiative. Wellness incentives are announced through payroll coordinators and on the intranet.

The next few pages contain a brief outline of the health and wellness benefits the city provides employees and their families. Please keep in mind, the information presented here is intended to serve only as a guideline. Our most up-to-date benefits information can be found on the city employees’ Benefit Center website. This site provides employees with an efficient way to obtain information and answers to questions regarding the city’s employee benefit plans on a 24/7 basis. Please refer to the summary plan descriptions or certificate of insurance booklet for detailed information.

While the city intends to maintain these employee benefits, it reserves the absolute right to modify, amend, or terminate these benefits at any time and for any reason.

If employees have any questions regarding benefits, they should contact human resources, benefits section at (859) 258-3030.
