In addition to our outstanding health care and retirement benefits, Mass General offers numerous other benefits, conveniences and resources to support a healthy work/life balance and make employees feel more at home.
Work/life benefits at Mass General include:
Earned Time - Our employees accrue time off based on years of service and standard hours. This bank of earned time is used for holidays (Mass General observes nine), illness, vacation and personal days. New, full-time employees may earn up to 29 days annually and the accrual rate is pro-rated for part-time employees. Best of all, at Mass General earned time is not “use it or lose it.” There are options to roll over or cash out unused time. Increases in the rate at which time is accrued start at five years of service.
Fitness Center - Employees have access to the Clubs at Charles River Park, a full-service fitness center located directly behind the hospital’s main campus. All benefits-eligible Mass General employees or Mass General-based Partners employees can join The Clubs at a special, substantially discounted rate.
Resources for Childcare and Emergency Back-Up Childcare - In recognition of the complex needs and schedules of working families, Mass General offers subsidized childcare at two MGH-owned facilities; manages a Backup Childcare Center to provide emergency childcare to both patients and employees; and also offers access to Care.com Backup Care – emergency in-home childcare.
“Dinners to Go” - On nights when cooking dinner doesn’t fit in, Mass General’s Dining Service provides the opportunity to purchase nutritious meals to take home.
Wellness Programs - Be Fit is a Mass General Hospital wellness program that guides our employees to a healthier lifestyle by teaching them how to eat better and incorporate exercise into their daily lives. Participants work with Mass General nutritionists and personal trainers during this 10-week journey, in which they compete with co-workers as they make a commitment to “Be Fit, Eat Right and Live Healthy.” In addition, Mass General's Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine offers programs for staff that focus on the relaxation response, positive coping strategies, physical activity, nutrition, social support and other wellness programs.
Main Campus Amenities - Getting to the bank or pharmacy before they close can be a challenge. That’s why our main campus houses a pharmacy, post office, banking terminals, hair salon and a hospital gift shop that offers not only items of convenience, but also unique gift items, greeting cards and hospital apparel.
Perks Discounts - Our employees enjoy discounts on tickets and passes for everything from ski resorts to museums to sporting events. Our intranet provides access to the most updated offers.
Pet Insurance - In addition to health care coverage for the human members of the family, we offer the opportunity for employees to purchase insurance for their pets.
Subsidized MBTA Pass - Employees working 20 or more hours/week are eligible for a public transportation subsidy, available through payroll deduction.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP) - Through the EAP, Mass General employees are provided with free, confidential consultation, short term counseling, resources and referrals to help address a variety of work/life, family or personal concerns.
