Perks and Programs

We asked Chobani, LLC to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Chobani Shares: Every full-time member of the company has been given the opportunity to share in the growth of Chobani over time – a first for a manufacturing company of Chobani’s size.
  • Parental Leave: Our Paid Parental Leave Policy provides our male and female employees with six weeks of 100% paid leave to bond with a new child following birth, adoption, or placement of foster care. We want our employees to bond with their babies and return to their jobs feeling confident and ready.
  • Volunteer Opportunities: From a homeless shelter in New York City to an afterschool program in Idaho to a Special Olympics event in upstate New York, we offer multiple opportunities per year – sometimes every week – for employees to join in on our efforts to give back to the communities in which we live and work.
  • Employee Appreciation: We annually host two important and highly-anticipated events for the entire team – a Spring Celebration in March and a Family Day in August. Our Spring Celebration features farm-fresh harvest tables in each location for employees to sample and take home fresh produce, and a spring-themed Chobani-branded gift such as seeds to plant or a Chobani cookbook. Our Family Day celebrations are held outdoors and are open to all employees and their entire families, featuring games, food, prizes and an ideal opportunity for family interaction.
  • Employee Recognition Program (RISE): RISE stands for Regular, Immediate, Specific and Encouraging – that’s how we want to give feedback, recognition and rewards to our fellow teammates. Powered by the Bonusly app, RISE does more than just offer a “thank you”– it offers strategic and immediate recognition and reward, shining a spotlight on people while the greater team learns of their achievements and celebrates their successes. Everyone gets 4 “cups” to give per month, at a value of $5 each. Awards can be “cashed in” for gift cards or Chobani gear, or donated to a charitable cause.
  • Free Yogurt: Chobani employees have access to free Chobani Greek and traditional Yogurt, whether it’s for enjoying at work or to take home to share with friends and family. And whenever we introduce a new product, we make sure employees are the first to get a taste – they’re our greatest brand ambassadors!
  • Chobani Gear: Chobani-branded gear is highly-prized, and we make sure each employee has some – through new hire gifts to special celebrations to volunteer recognition. They can also earn it through RISE, our employee recognition program.
  • Chobani Women: Our peer-driven women’s leadership group offers support and education for Chobani’s female staff, and all-inclusive activities such as a robust speaker’s panel series taking place in each of our physical locations. Last year’s seminars included visiting speakers from Home Depot, Soul Cycle, NFL and Sam’s Club.


$5,250 Maximum Tuition Reimbursement
