At Novo Nordisk, our passion for people begins with meeting the needs of our own diverse team. More than just attracting and retaining the best minds in the business, we empower our employees to change their own lives – to reach their goals both professionally and personally. To that end, we strive to continually improve our employees' benefits each year.
We offer exceptional compensation and an array of benefits programs that truly offer Total Rewards, including up to 94% of the total cost of your health insurance. You'll even find services like coaching on "Saving and Paying for College" and in-home backup care for dependents and ill family members.
You can choose from three types of medical plans on your first day of work. Novo Nordisk pays a large portion of the monthly premium for you and your eligible dependents if you elect a PPO or HMO (up to 85%), which translates into small payroll deductions for your health care. A Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP) option offers a lower per paycheck cost and includes a company contribution to a Health Savings Account.
The purpose of this policy is to provide time off, with pay, to employees for rest and relaxation.
