Sixty-eight percent of Beaumont employees have used at least one of the wellness benefits during the past 12 months. In addition, employees benefit from myOptimal Health, which is a total health-management strategy aimed at controlling long-term health care costs.

Beaumont offers its full- and part-time employees on-site child care, backup care for child care and eldercare, and referral services to help employees find child care and eldercare. In addition, the hospital system offers up to 40 hours of subsidized backup care annually for all employees, giving them an additional option when faced with unforeseen caregiving responsibilities.

The hospital system stays connected with its retirees by communicating on a regular basis, by inviting them to organization events and celebrations, by providing retirees with ongoing access to retirement planning workshops/information, and by formally acknowledging employees on the occasion of their retirement. Beaumont offers retirees temporary work assignments, consulting and contract work, telecommuting, and full- and part-time work assignments.
