Excellent Benefits Complete The Experience
Benefits provide enormous value and protection to you and your family. At Zenith, we take it a step further. We believe in the power of wellbeing to inspire all of us to live healthier, longer, and more secure and fulfilling lives.
Our Wellbeing program includes four dimensions: your physical, emotional, and financial health, as well as your community connections. All regular full-time and part-time employees regularly scheduled to work 20 hours or more each week are eligible for most benefits.
Medical and Wellness
We offer a comprehensive PPO plan utilizing a nationally recognized network of healthcare providers that integrates health and wellbeing to provide the incentives and support needed to keep you and your family in optimal health.
Zenith provides a comprehensive dental PPO plan with an emphasis on preventive care. The plan covers preventive care at 100% with no deductible; and includes basic, major and orthodontic benefits.
Employees who elect medical coverage are eligible to enroll in vision coverage at no additional cost. The vision plan covers 100% of the cost up to the benefit maximums for eye exams, lenses, and frames, based on a benefit frequency schedule.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Life and AD&D
Zenith provides basic life insurance at 3x salary for all benefits-eligible employees. You can buy additional coverage at group rates for yourself, spouse, and children.
Zenith provides partial salary continuation to employees on approved short-term medical leave. Long-term disability insurance is provided to all benefits-eligible employees. Disability insurance protects a portion of your income if you are unable to work due to a long-term illness or injury.
