The benefits of working for an organization like Kaiser Permanente go beyond what might be considered traditional “benefits.” Sure, we offer competitive compensation. And our medical coverage is pretty amazing, as are our retirement plans. But it’s our commitment to caring for our employees holistically that rounds out the benefit of joining our team.

Being a care-driven organization, we value health, wellness, and happiness above all and know that reaching your potential at work often starts with being your best outside of it. We recognize the benefit of wellness and work-life balance and provide many tools and resources to help our employees thrive. In fact, we’re consistently named a Best Employer for Healthy Lifestyles by the National Business Group on Health!

Beyond encouraging everyone to be their best self, we also know that feeling good comes from owning your professional development. Which is why we embrace learning as a way of life. Whether you sit on the clinical, technical, or business side of our organization, you’ll be encouraged to explore your potential through career paths and educational opportunities that match your ambitions.

While specific benefits vary based on location, position, scheduled hours, and representation by collective bargaining or employee groups, they generally include what you see in the summary below.

    Traditional pension offered for employees with a minimum of five years of service. Also a generous 403(b) offered. This is equal to a 401(k) plan. Highly generous paid time off program. You have the ability to cash out a portion of your unused vacation once annually and the start of the year. This is helpful with paying off holiday bills or apply to your 403(b).
