Through its company-wide program, Empyrean Shares, each employee can make a difference with up to eight paid hours per year to volunteer for select charitable causes. People from all across the organization come together to research and arrange different philanthropic efforts for employees to participate in—which have included food and toy drives, mentor programs, and volunteer days with Habitat For Humanity.
Since Empyrean is setting trends in the benefits industry, it makes sure to follow suit within its own organization. Each employee who chooses to participate is provided a fitness tracker that monitors the amount and intensity of their daily exercise. Based on this data, each employee receives a corresponding benefit—straight into their Health Savings Account.
