Balancing work and personal responsibilities can be challenging. That’s why BJC offers resources to help manage life’s demands. Our goal is to foster a positive culture and productive environment for time spent at work and to provide you appropriate time away from work to do what you enjoy most. In addition, there are a number of policies and programs designed to support your work-life balance.
Paid Time Off (PTO): This is a bank of time for your scheduled and unscheduled time off. The bank includes vacation, holidays, sick time and personal days. You may accumulate a maximum of 23 to 33 days annually, based on your position and years of service.
Employee Discounts: BJC offers you and your dependents an array of discounts, allowing savings for purchases made. The discount platform allows BJC to evolve offerings based on your feedback.
BJC Adoption Assistance: BJC offers financial assistance if you use a licensed agency to adopt a child. A combination of documented expenses, including agency and legal fees and pre-adoption costs are accepted for reimbursement. Eligibility is dependent on working 24 or more hours per week (.6 FTE).
