Health Insurance

People Inc. offers health insurance for full time employees. Dental and vision coverage is offered for full and part time employees.

Employees can also pay for certain health care expenses with pre-tax dollars through a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA). An FSA and HSA can help to cover the cost of eligible items, including physician and prescription co-payments, glasses or contacts, dental bills or childcare expenses for dependent children (FSA only) under the age of 13. 

Paid Time Off

Full time and part time employees begin accruing paid time off (PTO) immediately upon hire. PTO can be used for vacation, sick or personal days. A PTO buyback option is also offered.

401(k) Plan

Full time and part time employees may participate in the 401(k) plan upon the completion of six months of service. People Inc. makes a matching contribution of .30 cents on the dollar up to 3% of annual compensation.

Holiday & Shift Incentives

Employees who work on a People Inc. designated holiday will receive an additional hourly premium above their regular rate of pay.

Employees working in a direct care capacity between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. will receive an additional $.30 per hour added to their base hourly pay rate for their direct care position.

Educational Advancement

People Inc. values education. Employees who have completed six months of service, or more, are eligible for tuition assistance for courses started and satisfactorily completed while actively employed at People Inc.

Coursework eligible for reimbursement must be offered through an accredited or approved educational institution or program of higher learning. Online courses and certifications are also included.

Peer Review Program
A Conflict Resolution Process for People Inc. Employees

People Inc. recognizes that from time to time an employee may encounter a problem, question or concern, that if left unresolved, could affect job satisfaction and work performance. Employees are encouraged to voice their concerns about how the application of an agency policy has affected them. An "open door policy" provides access to any member of management with whom an employee wishes to express a concern. However, when an employee is faced with a situation that has not been satisfactorily resolved by traditional means, the Peer Review process may be used. Peer Review is a formal problem-solving system designed to resolve employee conflicts quickly and fairly.
