Health Insurance Plans: Google provides comprehensive medical, prescription drug, dental and vision benefits for you and your family.
Google offers a variety of health insurance plans, allowing employees to find the option that best fits their needs. Medical plans range from traditional HMOs to high-deductible options with Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). Employees can also opt into coverage including dental, vision, disability, and life insurance. All plans include access to telemedicine so it’s easy to quickly get help without leaving your home.
Wellness Programs: Google offers wellness programs such as fitness classes, healthy eating workshops, and meditation to help employees be their best.
In addition to offering a variety of health insurance options, Google has initiated several proactive initiatives and programs to keep their employees feeling their best. These wellness programs include fitness classes, healthy eating workshops, and meditation so employees can develop healthy habits for body and mind. These activities are led by staff members who lead yoga classes and nutrition seminars, providing a mental break from the day-to-day stresses of the job.
Wellness Incentives: Employees are eligible for financial incentives that encourage them to maintain healthy lifestyles with rewards like gym membership discounts or annual medical checkups.
Google’s wellness incentive program gives employees the opportunity to receive a financial reward for maintaining healthy habits. Eligible employees can receive monetary bonuses, discounts on gym memberships, or even discounts on annual medical check-ups. These rewards are given to encourage people to focus on their physical and mental well-being and develop healthy habits, with the ultimate goal of increasing employee productivity.
Global Medical Coverage: Google provides additional assistance both in-house care overseas and access to trusted providers if you need medical treatment abroad; one of the many benefits of being part of a global team at Google.
Google provides global medical coverage globally, covering employees and their eligible dependents both in and outside of the United States. As part of this coverage, access to in-house care is available for use during international trips, including wellness examinations performed by immigration or healthcare specialists. Additionally, there are also discounts on travel insurance and access to medical service providers around the world if you need treatment while overseas.
Stress Management Resources: To support employees mental health is just as important as physical health so they offer ample resources such as stress-management counseling helplines and personal coaching sessions with experts in their field.
General exhaustion or stress can cause difficulty to focus, but it doesn’t have to! Google provides employees with access to professional resources and expertise such as wellness programs, preventative health screenings, and stress management seminars. Employees also have access to financial advice sessions, meditation classes, mental well-being seminars, and more. These services can help reduce anxiety and boost work performance.
