Part of working at Welch's is knowing that your welfare and peace of mind are of the utmost importance.
We reinforce this by offering you benefits designed to protect your health and security - and the well being of those you love. Our competitive benefits program offers a broad array of resources that allows you to select the benefits that meet your needs best.
Here is a brief overview of the benefits available to full time employees in salaried positions that may vary depending upon location:
Medical, Dental & Vision Coverage
Welch's offers medical, dental, and vision plans that help protect employees and their families against major expenses. Plans include preventative coverage, hospital coverage as well as prescription drug, vision, mental health, and substance abuse programs.
Part of a rewarding work experience is knowing that your retirement will be comfortable. With our competitive 401(k) savings plan, you can set aside part of your normal compensation using pre-tax dollars while enjoying the benefits of a generous company match. You become fully vested in the company's matching contributions after only three years of service.
We provide basic life insurance and business travel accident insurance at no cost to employees. We also offer optional, employee-paid group term life insurance and personal accident insurance. Whether you're single or taking care of a family, you gain invaluable protection with these optional policies.
Flexible Spending Accounts
You can set aside pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible healthcare expenses and dependent care expenses. Once you incur the expense, you submit a claim and the money is reimbursed to you. Because you're using pre-tax dollars, you save a great deal.
Vacations and Holidays
We offer competitive vacation and holiday schedules. As your vacation needs may change from year to year, we also offer the opportunity to purchase five additional days of vacation for each calendar year.
Training and Development
Your personal and professional enrichment is important to Welch's. In fact, we encourage you to pursue training of all kinds, and we reward your development efforts in many ways. Programs offered include tuition reimbursement, company approved and paid training courses, seminars, and conferences.
Employee Assistance Program
Health and well being are more than just a physical state; they also involve mental, emotional and spiritual states of well being. We have contracted with an independent, confidential counseling and referral service for our employees and dependents.
While eligibility requirements may apply, Welch's offers additional benefits including short term and long term disability coverage, adoption benefits, credit union membership, community service programs and company product discounts and coupons.
