Benefits of Working at Sharp

Making Sharp the best place to work is part of The Sharp Experience.

Each day, Sharp HealthCare strives to build an environment where employees are passionate about making a difference. One way Sharp acknowledges that effort is through a flexible and generous compensation and benefits package. 

SharpChoice Flexible Benefits Plan
SharpChoice is Sharp HealthCare’s health and welfare benefits package, provided to ensure that you and your family are protected against catastrophic financial loss resulting from an illness or injury. SharpChoice includes:

  • Two HMO medical plan choices (including vision)
  • Two PPO dental plan choices
  • Health care and day care flexible spending accounts
  • Personal accident insurance
  • Two choices of long term disability insurance
  • Several choices of life insurance
  • Several choices of dependent life insurance

Sharp$aver Retirement Plan
The Sharp$aver 401(a) plan includes employee after-tax contributions with matching contributions made by Sharp. This innovative savings plan also provides educational opportunities and expert investment resources to help employees shape their strategies.

Tax-Deferred Retirement Program
The tax-deferred program is a long-term savings plan that offers employees pre-tax contributions with available loan and withdrawal provisions. Because contributions and earnings credited to the tax-deferred account(s) accumulate on a tax-deferred basis, substantial amounts of money may be invested for a surprisingly small cost.

Paid Leave Plan
The paid leave plan provides replacement income while you take time off for rest and relaxation or while you or a family member is recovering from a temporary illness or injury. Paid Time Off (PTO) and Extended Sick Insurance (ESI) can be used as they are accrued.

Group Voluntary Benefit Plans
Sharp HealthCare employees are also eligible to participate in the following group voluntary benefit plans:

  • Long Term Care Insurance Plan
    This plan can be purchased for employee’s family members to cover services needed by people who are unable to perform basic activities without assistance or who have a severe cognitive impairment.
  • Group Legal Plan
    The Group Legal Plan provides legal services, affordable rates, and easy access to qualified attorneys.
  • College Savings Plan
    The College Savings Plan helps employees pay for higher education and build a nest egg for college for themselves or eligible beneficiaries.

Sharp Best Health Program
The goal of Sharp Best Health is to provide all team members with a work environment that supports their personal health goals by providing programs and healthy food and drink options in the cafeterias. The program consists of system-wide initiatives such as health screenings and activity challenges, online resources including an interactive personal health portal with activity and nutrition trackers, and countless site-based wellness programs managed by Sharp Best Health wellness committees throughout the system.
