At PREMIER, our employees are our most valuable resources. Both full-time and part-time PREMIER employees are eligible for certain benefits, making our package one of the most competitive in the market.
PREMIER Time Off
The balance of work and home is important to keep all of us happy, healthy and energized. That's why PREMIER offers a competitive time off package for both our full- and part-time employees who work a minimum of 20 hours per week. Our PREMIER Time Off bank includes paid vacation time, floating holidays, perfect attendance days, and a United Way day for those who meet the criteria.
Full- and part-time employees can also store up to a maximum of 80 hours annually of sick time separately from their PREMIER Time Off.
PREMIER offers a highly competitive 401(k) program for full-time employees. Employees become eligible on the first of the month following 90 days of employment.
- Match dollar-for-dollar up to 5% of total compensation.
- Match contributions are immediately 100% associate-owned.
- Match contributions are made to associate investment accounts every pay period.
- More than 30 individual investment options including targeted retirement date options. Investment offerings cater to the very investment savvy as well as those seeking greater guidance in managing risk tolerance.
Provided by Sanford Health, employees choose between two different single deductible plan options ($2,000 Traditional Plan and $4,000 High Deductible). PREMIER offers four tiers of medical options; single, single plus spouse, single plus child(ren), and family. Coverage is available to both full-time and part-time employees who work a minimum of 20 hours per week.
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)
Employees may elect to participate in the medical expense reimbursement program administered by Sanford Health Plan if enrolled in the traditional health plan.
Employees may elect to participate in the dependent (child care) care reimbursement program administered by Sanford Health Plan if enrolled in either of the medical plans (traditional or HDHP).
Health Spending Accounts (HSA) and Limited Flexible Spending Account
Employees who elect the high deductible medical plan may elect to participate in the health spending account and/or elect the limited flex spending account (dental and vision only) expense reimbursement program administered by Alliance Benefit Group. The company will contribute a base amount of your HSA based on your health insurance coverage election during Open Enrollment. In addition, a "bonus" contribution to the HSA is made by the company based on years of service.
Comprehensive dental and orthodontia coverage is provided to employees, their spouses and/or children at no cost through Delta Dental of South Dakota. Coverage is available to both full-time and part-time employees who work a minimum of 20 hours per week.
Basic coverage provides employees a discount on lenses and frames with $15 co-pays on eye exams for employees, their spouses and/or children at no cost. Employees may elect a “buy-up” plan under VSP, our vision provider, which provides a richer vision benefit than the basic plan. Coverage is available to both full-time and part-time employees who work a minimum of 20 hours per week.
