Perks and Programs

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

  • Low health coverage premiums: Texas Health offers low medical premiums with low deductibles and 90% coinsurance. With several medical plan options, employees choose plans that best fit their lifestyle and budget. The plans differ in deductible and coinsurance amounts and in their coverage for out-of-network care. To keep employees’ share of the costs low, Texas Health pays, on average, more than 82 percent of the premium cost for full-time employees and offers medical premiums in salary-based tiers. For example, an individual who selects an employee-only plan with the lowest out-of-pocket costs pays a premium of just $11 per pay period and gets 90 percent of their medical bills paid after a $500 deductible — a pretty sweet deal compared to many other companies’ medical offerings. The premiums are even lower for the $1,000 deductible plan.
  • Be Healthy program: Be Healthy is a wellness program to educate and reward employees for taking steps to live a healthier life. Be Healthy includes healthy lifestyle and weight management programs (Weight Watchers, Real Appeal and Walkingspree) and encourages friendly competition where employees can earn up to $450 in awards annually in the form of gift cards (300 to choose from). What we love is that employees who participate in this program and see improvements in their health are inspired to encourage other employees to participate, helping improve wellness throughout our system. We also offer Be Healthy Breaks, a series of 10-minute videos created by Texas Health fitness experts and posted on our intranet to teach employees exercises that they can do at their desk or at a nurse’s station.
  • 401(k) match: Texas Health has a generous 401(k) match that increases with years of service. After one year of service, Texas Health provides a match for every dollar an employee contributes to the plan, up to certain limits.The longer you work for Texas Health, the greater the match. Employees earn vesting credit on their employer matching contributions based on their years of service. The yearly match is: $.075 per contributed dollar from one to four years of service; $1.00 per contributed dollar for five to nine years; and $1.25 per contributed dollar for 10 years and up.
  • Paid Time Off: Texas Health wants employees, especially those who work full-time, to take time off to focus on themselves and refresh. We encourage our people to take at least 10 days (80 hours) of paid time off (PTO) from work each year. We have a generous annual PTO accrual that starts at 24 days per year for staff and 29 days per year for directors and above. The accruals grow with years of service up to 37 days annually for staff who have more than 20 years and 41 days annually for directors and above for the same length of service. Employees can keep up to a maximum of 400 hours in their PTO bank for vacation, sick time and holidays.
  • Employee Discount Program: Texas Health employees receive discounts from hundreds of companies on everything from travel, wireless services and office supplies to dining, entertainment and home, auto and pet insurance.
  • Community Time Off: Community Time Off is Texas Health’s employee volunteering program. We give every employee one paid day off per year for volunteering in a community service project. This amounts to 12 hours per year for clinical staff and eight hours annually for non-clinical employees. Texas Health works with more than 200 nonprofit organizations, large and small, throughout the year to gather and identify CTO opportunities and then posts the opportunities on a calendar that is viewable via the CTO section of our Texas Health Gives portal. Employees can view all of the opportunities that are available systemwide and filter them by hospital, city and zip code (opportunities are reviewed before being posted).
  • Tuition Reimbursement: Texas Health has a robust Tuition Reimbursement program to facilitate professional career development. We think it’s a win-win for the employee and our organization. The way it works, Texas Health reimburses tuition and some recurring fees for approved degree plans that benefit Texas Health or the employee’s position. Employees may be reimbursed up to $5,250 per year for clinical degrees and up to $4,000 per year for nonclinical degrees. All full- and part-time benefits-eligible employees can participate in the program after six months of service, with one exception: Individuals pursuing clinical degrees are eligible immediately. Benefits-eligible employees are also eligible for reimbursement of expenses related to attaining their General Educational Development certificate.
  • Nursing Advancement Programs: Texas Health offers job and career advancement for nurses through a residency program for new graduates and a career advancement ladder. To encourage future nurses to join our Texas Health family, we offer the Versant New Graduate RN Residency™ program, which is rotational and allows new graduates to complete a one-year residency. They attend classes and are paired with a series of mentors. Our Nursing Career Advancement Program enhances our nurses’ knowledge and skills, enabling them to advance professionally without leaving direct patient care. Participants set their own goals and development plans. NCAP has six levels, each of which requires the participant to stretch beyond their current job duties. Nurses can increase their recognition and take-home pay as they move up the levels.
  • Reward Programs: Texas Health’s Total Rewards program provides a framework and tools/ideas from which our entities can customize to support the unique needs of their business and team. The program rewards individuals for high performance, recommends specific annual awards, provides opportunities for recognition more than once a year. Total Rewards offers formal and informal ways of showing our genuine appreciation for our people — from thanking people on the spot for things we see them do and our service awards that say thank you for your tenure to The THR Promise Award that recognizes exemplary behavior and executive leaders who thank employees in person during Leadership Rounding. The program also includes use of email, blog and a Bravo Board on Yammer.
  • Compassionate Leave: Time away from work due to injury/illness or other personal matter can be difficult. With this in mind, Texas Health offers programs to assist employees in regaining their health or caring for a loved one and then returning to work, as well as other personal leaves. We offer Family and Medical Leave, Modified Duty, ADA leave and personal leave of absence. Texas Health works closely with employees in these circumstances to help meet the needs of the individual.
