Employment Perks

A commitment to integrity, teamwork, inclusion and the pursuit of excellence is at the core of everything we do. We strive to create a place where people are proud to work.

At work, we help take care of our employees’ well-being through benefits and work perks that enrich their lives, can help improve their health and help them balance all the demands in their lives. Examples include our wide variety of wellness programs, a specific focus on flexible work arrangements and our family friendly culture.

Adoption Benefits

Adoption benefits allow employees to focus on what really matters, their new family member. The Principal offers both adoption leave and reimbursement to allow employees flexibility and security during this important life event.

Matching Gifts

Through our matching gift program, qualified employee/agent gifts made to eligible K-12 education programs, higher education programs and United Way are matched by the company, increasing the impact made by each individual donor.

Flexible Work Arrangements

Employee needs are diverse—and a one-size-fits-all approach to schedules just doesn’t work. That’s why the Principal Financial Group® offers a variety of options for flexible work arrangements.

The Principal provides the tools and resources to help our employees and their leaders work together to support flexible work arrangements. We strive to create a work environment that’s flexible — one that works for our employees, our customers and our business partners.
