Supporting our employees

Life Event Services (LES) is an internal, highly specialized group that provides personalized support for major life events, including connecting employees to resources, benefits and counseling. In response to the current global health crisis, LES has assisted teammates impacted by the coronavirus. Since its inception, LES has supported teammates through more than 140,000 moments that matter for needs related to the following areas:

  •  Leave of absence support for employees who need assistance with a complex leave or guidance with a leave-related issue
  • Terminal illness support for terminally ill employees and their family members
  • Domestic violence support and connections to resources for employees impacted by domestic violence

Full-time teammates are also eligible for 20 days of paid bereavement leave after losing a spouse, partner or child.
