Careers at EmPower HR

Our Benefits

EmPower HR’s benefits platform has so much to offer, from medical, dental and vision coverage to life insurance, short- and long-term disability coverage, long term care, Flexible Spending Accounts, Heath Savings Accounts and a 401(k) plan. We partner with Blue Cross Blue Shield to provide a well-balanced medical plan for all our benefit-eligible employees. We offer three different dental plans through MetLife, and our vision partner, Davis Vision, has a network of credentialed providers.

Even More Benefits!

Our employees have access to an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) which is a confidential and no cost program that provides assistance to employees through various life challenges that may adversely affect their job performance, health and personal well-being. We have a discount program through LifeMart and a voluntary discounted legal service with MetLaw. Can we talk Paid Time Off (PTO)? In year 2, employees accrue 4 weeks of PTO each year, with 12 paid holidays. You even get your birthday off!

The Best Benefit of All

EmPower HR also has benefits that you can’t measure, like our dedicated Culture Committee that goes above and beyond to make sure that we play as hard as we work. This committee organizes events from leadership breakfasts, where you can be served eggs by the President of our company, to community service activities including a blood drive and feeding the homeless, to celebrations like company summer picnics and of course our awesome holiday party including our impressive talent show!

Our Culture

EmPower HR employees are driven by the concept of 1440 and our six Pillars. 1440 is the number of minutes in a day. We aspire to create the absolute best experience with every person, in every interaction, every minute of every day. Does that mean we work 24 hours a day? Of course not!

We want our employees to make every minute count both in the office and outside of work. Our Pillars -- Dream Big, Have Courage, Take Initiative, Be Accountable, Give Back and Enjoy It -- are what drive our team and enable all of us to live 1440.
