The bedrock of a great company is a great culture, and we’re pretty proud of ours. We make sure each employee is empowered and accountable from day one, prioritizing teamwork and creative collaboration to give everyone the power to make a real impact and get real rewards for success, regardless of their role or tenure.
As we keep growing, we’re looking for people who are eager to learn, who take pride in their work and who are excited to channel their expertise into finding the best solutions for our clients’ challenges every day.
Our client relationships are the core of our business, but we know that what we offer can only be as good as the people offering it. That’s why we focus just as much on the individuals and relationships inside benefitexpress, helping each employee build lasting bonds with their team, their coworkers and upper management.
Our commitment to culture comes through in everything we do. Read what that culture means to our team and why they love working at benefitexpress in their own words.
“I love working at benefitexpress because everyone here has one goal in mind: Give the clients what they need and want to best serve their employees. We work well together to get the job done. Even during Annual Enrollment, the most stressful time of year, everyone pulls together and works as a team.”
“The benefitexpress culture is hard-working. The people here are willing to put in the effort. Employees pitch in and work beyond their role description to get the job done. But, when the time is right, we also know how to have fun. Whether it’s gathering in the lounge for ice cream, or going off-site for a service project, we are always having get-togethers.”
“I’ve always said I like working here because of the people at our office. While I don’t know everyone anymore (we’ve grown so much!), the people I have met are very kind and cheerful. The culture is laid back but professional at the same time. We are surrounded by so many hard-working and motivated employees that it drives you to be the same.”
“What I like best about working at benefitexpress is working with everyone here. We have a great group who work well together in a fast-paced environment. I also like how the work each day is different from the next. There’s always something new that I’m working with, which definitely keeps things interesting.”
“The culture is wonderful. It has a small, family feel to it, where everyone truly cares about each other and our work. It is fun to be a part of this atmosphere.”
“benefitexpress has a fast-paced and hard-working environment. Everyone works so well together and are all dedicated to delivering the best work they can. Working with a strong team motivates everyone to do their best and to think critically about problems and find paths to the right solutions.”
People stick with us over the long term because we stick with them, offering each employee upward mobility, flexibility and the chance to develop skills for their career. We also work to promote from within, so we train for advancement and actively involve employees in career path development and succession planning.
“It is important for me to be part of an organization that cares about more than the bottom line. The matching program at benefitexpress is a tangible example of how benefitexpress cares about our people by supporting what is important to us outside of work.”
“I can only hope that not just my donation, but the generous match from benefitexpress goes to lifesaving research and helps cancer patients get the support they need. To work for a company that supports their employees on such an individual, personal level like this is incredibly appreciated.”
“The benefitexpress donation match program is a great way to give back and have my company support a program that means so much to me. Thanks, benefitexpress, for also contributing to the American Cancer Society!”
“The benefitexpress charitable match program is a wonderful way for the company to donate to causes and charitable organizations that are important to its employees. For me personally, it gives me joy that my contribution is doubled by the generosity of benefitexpress. I am proud that the company values and encourages employees to give back to worthy causes.”
“The benefitexpress charitable donation matching program gave me the ability to give more than I could have otherwise, which is a blessing. I love working for an organization that allows us numerous volunteer opportunities throughout the year and is now matching our charitable donations.”
“Stephy’s Place has been a great resource to the community during the pandemic, especially for those that have lost loved ones to COVID-19. All facilitators are volunteers, so every dollar of my donation and benefitexpress’s match goes straight to operating costs.”
Events at the office and off site give you the chance to get to know your coworkers and have fun outside of work.
Enjoy some treats and spend time with coworkers at our regular food-themed parties, like ice cream socials.
Every event doesn’t have to be about eating and drinking! Crafting parties let you spend time with your team while making something fun to take home.
Teams are encouraged to plan their own outings, too, giving you the chance to make connections with the people you work with every day.
Show off your creativity each October with our costume contest!

We regularly measure employee engagement and satisfaction to make sure we’re building the kind of culture people are excited to be a part of. Here are a few great stats from our 2020 survey:
We ask a lot of our employees, which is why we offer so much in return, including competitive salaries, medical/dental/vision plans, 401(k) matching and annual performance-based incentive bonuses. Flexible hours, work from home options and a generous time off policy help keep work and life balanced, and our FUN Committee plans regular events to keep things exciting in the office.
