Perks and Programs

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

  • Personalized PTO: Our Personalized PTO provides employees the opportunity to take the time off they need when they need it. There is no maximum number of days allowed. Instead, employees are invited to manage their own time consistent with fulfilling their commitments to their colleagues and clients.
  • Professional Development Program: Mammoth offers a five-part professional development program: (1) sponsored professional certifications and continuing education credits, (2) one-on-one mentoring, (3) monthly brown bag lunches featuring in-house experts and outside speakers from a variety of backgrounds (4) partial tuition reimbursement, and (5) sponsored attendance at professional development conferences, seminars, and meet-ups.
  • Family Leave Policies: We understand the importance of supporting families. We offer 4 weeks of full-pay plus 8 weeks of 50% pay for pregnancy disability leave and 4 weeks of full-pay for family leave. In addition, we have a company-sponsored short-term and long-term disability benefit.
  • Mammoth Mob (Full Company Retreat): We believe our people are our greatest strength, and we invest in bringing them together twice a year to participate in strategic planning and in setting the direction of our company. During our Mammoth Mobs, we travel offsite and participate in collaborative planning sessions, cross-departmental workshops, bonfires with s’mores, Mad Libs, and other ways to connect and recharge as a team. When surveyed, one employee responded, "What I take away from the retreat is an understanding of the Mammoth brand and the vision for the company. Combine that with being able to spend time and collaborate with my teammates, and I'm confident that [the Mammoth Mob] make us a better company." 
  • Mammoth Stampede (Quarterly Meeting): Every quarter we come together to review company performance, introduce new members of the team, roll out initiatives, and have lunch! Although we promote open communication and collaboration each day, we believe that meeting as a group and providing an open forum to ask questions and to discuss changes is vital to employee engagement and maintaining transparency. One employee comments, "As a remote employee, I look forward to camaraderie and support from my team members, as we share our best practices and concentrate on providing the best service to our clients … all while having fun! I thoroughly enjoy the work, Mammoth’s culture, and our management always makes themselves available for questions, insight, and suggestions from each of us."
  • Monday Letter: Over the last two years, our company has doubled in size. We're excited by our growth and are committed to maintaining the culture of a dynamic, transparent, and caring organization. One way that our CEO reinforces this commitment is by publishing an open letter to the company every Monday. His letter speaks to our successes, opportunities, lessons and challenges, as well as industry trends. 
  • High Five Club: After 5 years of employment with Mammoth, employees are offered 2 weeks of paid time off plus a $1,000 stipend to thank them for their service with the organization. We want employees to take this time to celebrate, relax, and pursue their passions.
  • Starman Awards: We know that recognition and acknowledgement are vital components to employee engagement. We have designed an internal recognition tool called the Starman Award. This is a way for employees to write a quick note using our intranet to acknowledge a colleague for a job well done. The employee receives the Starman Award via email from the Operations team, and a tally of the awards is kept in the kitchen where everyone can see them adding up! Two employees are then randomly selected and announced at our Quarterly Stampede. We believe that peer recognition has a strong impact on our culture and the attitude of our team. In the last year, we have had more than 300 submissions!
  • Wellness Programs: We provide core programs like onsite flu shots and employee appreciation days that include chair massages and healthy smoothies. In addition, we have rolled out a unique program with Wellness Punch Cards. We create a card that has 8 manageable wellness activities on it like drinking 8 glasses of water or walking with a friend at lunch. Once employees complete all of the activities on the card, they submit it and are entered into a drawing for healthy giveaways. Employees can submit as many punch cards as they can fill out. We have found that making wellness both inclusive and holistic encourages participation from all different fitness, wellness, and organizational levels. We have had over 150 punch cards completed.
  • Core Benefits Package: Mammoth's core benefits are extensive. We contribute 75% to employees and 50% to dependents for our health and dental benefits. In addition, we offer a 401K plan with up to a 4% match. To help with transportation costs, we provide a commuter benefit with public transit and bike subsidy and a pre-tax deduction for parking. We have a company-sponsored short-term and long-term disability benefit to support employees in financially challenging times with access to voluntary life-insurance and accident insurance. We built this package taking into account our employees holistic wellness. We believe that having strong health, financial, and family-orientated benefits allows us to take care of our current employees and attract additional top talent to join our organization.
