Saint Barnabas Health Care System

Employees can take university courses on-site

Benefits/Financial: Employees working 20 or more hours per week are offered a 401(k) plan and a 403(b) plan with employer match, a defined-benefit plan, and a cash-balance or other hybrid plan. Employees age 50 and over can make catch-up contributions to their plan and may invest in lifecycle funds that automatically re-allocate assets based on age or proximity to retirement.

Staff from the financial services firm that administers the retirement plan and external financial planning experts provide financial information and training to employees. Specifically, outside advisors conduct training sessions on retirement planning and retirement issues.

Short-term and long-term leaves of absence are offered without pay to allow for caregiving.

Full- and part-time employees are offered flu shots, health screenings, health risk appraisals, smoking cessation programs, health club discounts, physical activity and weight loss programs, and stress management training.
