Edelman Benefits

Employer Summary

Employer Benefits Image

When you balance your personal and working lives well, you can enjoy better health, productivity, creativity and overall job satisfaction. Here are just a few of the ways we help our employees achieve balance:

Generous Time-off and Flextime

We offer one of the most generous time-off policies in the industry, including a sabbatical program. Nearly 75 percent of Edelman offices offer flexible work schedules and telecommuting is available to U.S.-based full-time or part-time employees. Worldwide, nearly half of our offices offer transportation support or vouchers.

Realize Your Dream

Through Edelman Escape, our U.S. employees can apply for $1,500 and an extra week of vacation to escape from their everyday duties and pursue a dream, goal or experience that will enrich their lives or a worthwhile cause. Past winners have spent time with a brother before he was deployed to Iraq; took a son to Washington, D.C. to learn more about the U.S. Constitution; produced a film script; worked for Habitat for Humanity; donated time and money to endangered species and traveled to China to visit a family birthplace.

Adoption Assistance

We provide support for child adoption, offering monetary assistance to employees. Of course, pets are family too, so our pet adoption assistance program in the U.S. provides up to $100 in financial reimbursement for the adoption of your four-legged friends.

Beyond Benefits

Beyond our regular benefits, which are tailored by location, you’ll find local “extras,” from language training and book clubs to fitness classes, food vouchers and office pantries stocked with healthy foods. Edelman is a tobacco-free workplace that promotes the health and wellbeing of our employees. If you want to move into a healthier weight category or stop smoking, we provide help and financial incentives for those goals, too.

    It is a middle of the road benefits package. Weirdest thing that trips people up is selecting for and paying for Short Term disability - crucial for maternity benefits.

    matching 401K, health insurance, smoking cessation plan, referral program
